In its attempt to overcome prejudice and racial discrimination Canada introduced a points system in the year 1967 that focused primarily on an individual’s educational qualifications, fluency in English and French and work expertise and not on the individual’s citizenship. This system was considered innovative as well as progressive and was also emulated by other nations that applauded Canada for its efforts. However the new ‘Express Entry System’ has reversed the dynamics of immigrant entry from being based in excellent academic records and skills to individuals with prior job offers. Citing the flaws of the point system, Canada has in the recent times favoured a more safe approach to admittance of immigrants. This employer led system has been introduced to overcome the problems of migrants who would get the visa due to their educational skills but would face exclusion when they would search for employment in Canada (The Economist). While the point system remains for those without job offer, the new system ensures that immigrants do not face biases regarding their employment. There is however concern with regard to the strengthening of biases against race and age as younger applicants are preferred over the old ones and people with English sounding names are also favoured. There is also some chance of fraudulent practices to obtain visas, by friends and known members of Canadian residents (The Economist). One can safely claim that the ideals of immigration have been borrowed from capitalism in the modern times as opposed to the empathetic demeanour it maintained in the past that focused more on the protection of the vulnerable population than their skills and their contribution as a human capital.
