  • On 1 January2015,the federal government launched a revamped ‘Express Entry’ system for economic immigration to Canada. Before this new program, potential economic immigrants to Canada followed a straightforward application process with a predictable outcome. So long as an applicant met the qualifying criteria, included the right documents, and applied before the yearly application quota was met, the application would eventually be approved. Though the wait was often very long, each applicant was ensured an eventual decision on their application.
