Exercising its right under the Canada-Quebec Accord is in the province’s economic interests. To sustain a strong economy, Quebec needs almost twice as many immigrants as it is currently targeting. In recent years, Canada’s second-largest province has welcomed around 50,000 immigrants annually, ranking second behind Ontario. On a per capita basis, however, Quebec’s newcomer intake ranked sixth among Canada’s provinces and territories.

Quebec’s economic growth would strengthen to an average of 1.7 per cent over the next two decades if it welcomed its proportionate share of newcomers, as it is eligible to do under the Canada-Quebec Accord. This federal-provincial agreement enables Quebec to admit a percentage share of immigrants in proportion to its demographic weight in Canada

The Morrison Government is stepping up its commitment to regional Australia by ensuring its migration system encourages skilled migrants to live and work in smaller cities and regions.

In March this year, the Government announced it would reduce the permanent migration cap from 190,000 to 160,000 places, and within that set aside 23,000 places for regional visas.

Following unprecedented growth (124 per cent) in the number of regional visas granted in the first quarter of this programme year, the Government is increasing the total number of regional places to 25,000.

The definition of regional Australia for migration purposes will also change. Perth and the Gold Coast will no longer be classified as major cities, ensuring they remain an attractive destination for skilled migrants and international students.

The new definition will come into effect on 16 November.

Locations outside of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane will have access to the 25,000 visa places, priority processing and international university graduates who live in these locations will be eligible to apply for more time in Australia on a post-study work visa.

For the second consecutive year, Indians have been the largest group to obtain an Australian citizenship.

According to recent statistics by the Australian Department of Home Affairs, in the fiscal year 2018-2019, a total of 1.27 lakh people, representing at least 200 countries of origin were conferred Australian citizenship. Out of these 28,470 or 22.3% were from India.

The year ending June 30, 2018 (fiscal year 2017 -2018) had seen India emerge as the largest group to obtain Australian citizenship, topping UK. While number of Indians acquiring Australian citizenship has gone up 60% in 2018-19 compared to the previous years which is almost tandem with the rise in total number of citizens, ratio of Indians obtaining citizenship has remained largely static in both the years at 22%.

According to the survey Freelancing in America 2018, released on Wednesday October 9, 2019, 93 percent of freelancers with a four-year college degree say skills training was useful versus only 79 percent who say their college education was useful to the work they do now. In addition, 70 percent of full-time freelancers participated in skills training in the past six months compared to only 49 percent of full-time non-freelancers.

Sixty-five percent of children entering primary school will end up in jobs that do not yet exist, reveals the World Economic Forum. The result is a proliferation of new, nontraditional education options.

Rapid technological changes combined with rising education costs, have made the traditional higher-education system an increasingly anachronistic and risky path. The cost of a college education is so high now that the debt incurred often is not outweighed by future earnings potential.

Yet too often, degrees are still thought of as lifelong stamps of professional competency and tend to create a false sense of security, perpetuating the illusion that work — and the knowledge it requires — is static.

A 2016 World Economic Forum report found that in many industries and countries, the most in-demand occupations or specialties did not exist 10 or even five years ago, and the pace of change is set to accelerate.

It is therefore imperative that more options to thrive without current overreliance on college degrees as proof of ability need to be encouraged. There is a need for new routes to success and hope.

Freelancers, the fastest-growing segment of the workforce, realize more than most that education doesn't stop. It's a lifelong process, and they are nearly twice as likely to reskill.

More and more, companies are catching on. Last year PwC began a pilot program allowing high school graduates to begin working as Accountants and Risk-Management Consultants. And this August, jobs website Glassdoor listed "15 more companies that no longer require a degree," including tech giants such as Apple, IBM and Google.

International students are now allowed to stay back in UK for two years post completion of their studies in the country. The UK Government has announced the re-introduction of the two-year post-study work visa expanding opportunities for talented international students to build successful careers in the country. The two-year post-study work visa was earlier scrapped in 2012. The regulation will be functional for the 2020-21 intakes of students to the university. This new immigration rule will surely enhance the number of students opting for UK as their potential international study destination.

The route will be open to all international students - including those from India - who have valid UK immigration status as a student and have successfully completed a course of study in any subject at the undergraduate level or above at an approved UK higher education provider.

The visa will allow eligible students to work, or look for work, in any career or position of their choice, for two years after completing their studies.

The US Government now wants people to come into the country legally and on merit. The country boasts of all thee MNCs coming in the US. There is a need for great people in the US accepts US Govt., but want them to come in on a merit basis, and not in the way they have been coming in for years.

Niagara College has contacted more than 400 students admitted to its January 2019 programs who had taken IELTS tests at locations in India, telling them they had to undergo a second English test or risk losing their offer of admission.

Niagara College flagged concerns with inconsistencies in the scores of English-language tests taken by students applying from India. It has asked 428 applicants to retake the test in India or risk having their offers of acceptance cancelled.

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is accepted by most Canadian academic institutions and is one of two major English language tests used by Immigration Canada as independent proof of immigration or citizenship applicant’s language proficiency.

The school launched an investigation this fall after the number of first-year international students flagged by faculty for being at risk academically surged to 300 from an average of 150 in previous years.

Those students were made to take an in-house language test and the college found 200 out of that group were failing in their academic programs because their English was not at the required level. Further investigation found 80 per cent of them were from India and had taken their IELTS tests at locations run by Australia-based IDP Education.
