The express entry system is for permanent residency, not temporary work. While our industry does use it, it is not the mechanism we use to bring people in quickly and efficiently. But then again, I guess the temporary foreign worker program isn't that either.
The express entry system is mainly for those people who have immediately expressed an interest in becoming permanent residents. Oftentimes we hire people from abroad who don't know whether they want to become permanent residents. We fully support a path to permanent residency for all of our employees. We fully support a path to citizenship. I think that would be great, but not everybody wants to stay, and not everybody decides that Canada is where they're going to spend any longer than their TFW work permit allows.
