Seems much more sensible than the current system, I am currently in BC / AB and seeking work under a 0,A,B NOC (most likely 0) Engineering manager / facilitates manager NOC 0211 or 0714.

Finding suitable roles and interested employers is not a problem, but the current Red tape involved in LMO puts most employers off before you even start, even when roles have been open for long periods of time, and are technically suitable for an LMO application.

Does a drafting technologist fall under Skill category A or B? (NOC 2253)

I am currently waiting on LMO approval for a position.

Under the new scheme starting 1st Jan 2015, if the same company wanted to offer me a job, could they do so and then it would be a case of using the Express Entry system.

Except that the new system is for PR apps, and won't be replacing LMO's. And it'll be far more 'red tape' and waiting for employers that hiring a foreign worker on a LMO/TWP I suspect!

Default Express Entry - FSW

Hi Guys,

So i am hoping to possible apply for and FSW through the new express entry system come January, without much actual hope that i will get one as i am not University educated etc, i'm hoping that my age and other factors may make up for it but we'll see. I'll be applying for IEC 2015 anyway as my girlfriend is Canadian and lives there and if i can get an IEC visa then after living with her for a year we plan on applying for Common Law sponsored PR.

Anyway, what should i have or will i need come January to apply through express entry?

Will i have to have completed an English language assessment?

Cheers

Why not just get the IEC first, get some experience and then apply for express entry later on.

You are going to be competing with people with Canadian job experience and/or a job offer.

Plus you have the option for spousal sponsorship later on, which might be easier?!

Default Expess Entry Thread

Just wondered, with the number of threads containing separate questions, and the imminent opening of the Express Entry, whether it would be worth having one thread in the same vain as the IEC 2015 thread?

A quick first glance overview of the points system:

1200 points total

Bulk of the points is awarded for having a job offer (600pts) and being a certain age (up to 110pts).

Points awarded for Canadian experience, English language skills, and education. Not worth a huge amount on their own, but they also feature in the combination categories (Canadian Experience + Language, Canadian Experience + Education & Language + Education) so you can essentially score multiple times for the same thing.

The points for the last three categories don't add up to a great deal, though, so, understandably, there is still a huge emphasis on having a job offer in hand.

(Mods: Feel free to edit as appropriate, or whatever you Mods like to do!)

P.S. I scored 380/1200... which doesn't fill me with a huge amount of confidence :/

Are there restrictions that say i can't apply for both? My full intention was to apply for IEC and live with my girlfriend for a year and then be eligible for PR via Common Law but if i can go down the route of Express Entry then that would be ideal.

No but if it was me I would go down the spouse route.

IEC is going to be your easiest option if you want to start working as it could take awhile to get PR especially if there is a big pool of applicants with more experience, a degree/masters/PhD (Canada loves education over work experience) and a job offer for full time/perm employment. That way once you get your LOI you can go out and start working and start living with your partner for the 12 months ready to apply for spousal sponsorship.

Of course, i am going to apply for my IEC but wouldn't mind a backup as i know how difficult it can be to get an IEC due to the high demand and limited availability.

There's no restriction on applying for both, there have been people on this forum, facebook etc who have applied for IEC while their CEC FSW etc applications were in. You'd probably want to hold out hope for success in the IEC stream as your first point.
