(Jan. 28/13) CRFA’s Luc Erjavec has been appointed as one of eight national representatives to the Department of Immigration’s Employer Technical Reference Group.

The mandate of the reference group is to provide Citizenship and Immigration Canada with input on developing an Expression of Interest (EOI) application management system for Canada.

Specific issues for discussion will include:

  • how to tailor EOI to meet the labour market needs of small, medium and large employers;
  • the potential role for employers in an EOI system;
  • the potential mechanism for employers to access skilled immigrants and to influence immigrant selection through an EOI system; and
  • the responsibilities and accountabilities associated with a role in influencing immigrant selection.

The reference group, which is part of the department’s engagement with partners and stakeholders on EOI, is a consultative body with no decision-making authority.
