Express Entry, Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s controversial new immigration system signifies the transition to an entirely electronic immigration process. According to Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander, the goal of Express Entry is “to get people with the skills to succeed in Canada’s economy here faster than ever”. Critics of the program, like immigration lawyer Richard Kurland, have been critical, stating that Canada’s immigration policies have shifted in favor of “expediency and naked pragmatism” and that Express Entry lacks “transparency, oversight or accountability”.
