Canadians unhappy With Govt. Pronouncement To Concentrate Trained Worker Program On Youth

Some reports suggest that the scheme of the Government of Canada to keep the attention of its skilled worker program firmly on the younger people has not gone down well with certain immigrant groups of the country. Reforms to the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)–which becomes effective from January, 2013– will imply that only people from 18 to 35 years will achieve maximum possible points in the age category of the points-based immigration evaluation system. The said system gives the residency-aspirants many points, in 6 classes. This is done via the FSWP. Presently, to make the cut, the candidates have to claim not less than 67 points.

Age is the fourth class. At present, all candidates, from 21 to 49 years get 10 points. This is the maximum total in the age class. But–post the proposed reforms get introduced in January, 2013–only employees from 18 to 35 years will get 12 points even as this is the latest maximum. All candidates aged 35 or above will lose 1 of those 12 points for every single year of their age in excess of 35. Hence, from the next year onwards, all aspirants aged 47 and over will get no points whatsoever in this class.

Ottawa reportedly claims that unambiguous indication, beefing-up the argument that younger overseas people stand a better chance of doing well in the workplace, exists. Sometime back, the Canadian Immigration Minister had observed that—after thoroughly going through the statistics–Immigration Canada had made public the reforms.

The minister had added that the changes are suitably tailored to make possible for the overseas people to do well in the Maple Country, and that Immigration Canada had methodically evaluated the proof and is well aware of all the factors that may play a crucial role in the success, or otherwise, of the trained overseas people. Ottawa is also concerned about the fast-ageing populace of the nation even while it is keen to have some young blood amidst its work force, via its immigration system.

The scheme of the Government of Canada to keep the attention of its skilled worker program firmly on the younger people hasn’t much inspired certain immigrant groups of the country. Reforms to the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)–which becomes effective from January, 2013– will imply that only people from 18 to 35 years will achieve maximum possible points in the age category of the nation’s points-based immigration evaluation system.
