Express Entry penalizes potential immigrants in their 30s

The federal government’s immigration points system undervalues candidates in their 30s, says Toronto immigration lawyer Robin Seligman.

On June 6, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will enact minor changesto the Express Entry system that will alter the allocation of points to those with French language skills and siblings in Canada.

But Seligman, principal at the immigration law boutique Seligman Professional Corporation, says the priority should be on revamping the scoring system for candidates according to their age.
