Starting in January 2015, Canada will be transitioning from the current immigration system to the Expression of Interest immigration system.  This system would be very much similar to Australia’s skilled select programme where in the applicant has to submit an expression of interest or intent. The Federal government, provinces and employers will all be able to select candidates from this pool of candidates. The invited candidates can only submit their immigration application.
