He added “We must do more to attract students to this country as permanent residents. International students have been shortchanged by the Express Entry system. They are the cream of the crop in terms of potential future Canadians .“I believe international students are the most fertile source of new immigrants for Canada. They are educated , speak English or French. They know something about the country, so they should be first on our list of people who we court to come to Canada,”

Presently, 600 out of a total of 1,200 points are allocated to individuals with a job offer from a Canadian employer or provincial selection. In order for the job offer to be valid, the employer has to obtain a positive LMIA, which serves as proof that there are no Canadian citizens or permanent residents who are ready, willing and able to fill the position.

Ideas that have been floated for tweaking the Express Entry system in order to assist international students include giving graduates specific points for education and work experience in Canada.
