According to travel trade sources, today's announcement would have a substantial positive effect on people who want to migrate to Canada as skilled workers.
The skilled worker category, more frequently referred to as the point system, allows a prospective immigrant to migrate to Canada based on educational and vocational experience among other things. Since the inception of the new Immigration and Refugee Protection Act in June last year, the pass mark for prospective immigrants under the skilled category was 75 points.
This pass mark was ``prohibitively high'' and Canada was losing many qualified immigrants to other countries, which have a similar system with less prohibitive criteria like Australia, the sources said.
