The importance and emphasis which Chinese millionaires place towards education is reflected in more than 85% of millionaires planning to send their children abroad for education, whilst among billionaires, this figure is 90%. The United States, the United Kingdom and Canada are the favorite destinations for education, while Canada, the United States and Singapore are the favorite destinations for immigration purposes.

More than 16% Chinese millionaires have already emigrated or have already submitted immigration applications, while 44% have plans to do so in the near future.

The boom in overseas education for their children and a desire to live abroad has driven Chinese millionaires to invest more readily overseas.

One third of millionaires own investable assets overseas, with this figure reaching 55% for millionaires in Southern China. Overseas assets account for 19% of millionaires’ total assets.

New wage structure

On April 25, 2012, common-sense improvements to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program were announced to better meet labour market demands, reduce red tape for employers, strengthen protections for temporary foreign workers and support the economic recovery.

These enhancements included a new wage structure.

Every employer continues to be required to pay temporary foreign workers the same wage that they are paying their Canadian workers for doing the same job in the same location.

Opportunities Ontario FSW Pilot Program

Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has asked provinces and territories for assistance in reducing the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) backlog of applications submitted before February 2008 through the FSW Backlog Reduction Pilot (FSW Pilot) initiative.As per the parameters of this initiative, Ontario identified the following five (5) occupations in which applicants destined to the province will get an opportunity to apply for an Ontario nomination leading to permanent residency on an expedited basis. Ontario identified the following five occupations:

1) Computer Analysts and Consultants (NOC 2171)
2) Software Developers (NOC 2173)
3) Interactive Media Programmers and Developers (NOC 2174)
4) Financial and Investment Analysts (NOC 1112)
5) Mathematicians (NOC 2161)

CIC will be contacting applicants in these occupations in February 2012 to seek their interest in participating in this Pilot. Contacted applicants will be able to apply to Opportunities Ontario and will be assessed under FSW Pilot program criteria as Ontario provincial nominees.

Applications are to be submitted to Opportunities Ontario by May 4, 2012.

There is no provincial fee with the application and applicants who are not selected by Ontario will retain their place in the FSWP queue.

Does participation in the FSW Pilot guarantee a Permanent Residency (PR) status?

Opportunities Ontario can only nominate 600 applicants under this initiative.

Opportunities Ontario reserves the right to process select applications among those received and return the remainder to the senders. Assessment by Opportunities Ontario does not guarantee nomination. Only applicants that are selected by the province and deemed to meet the eligibility criteria will be nominated.
