« Two proposals are put forward to extend the immigration points system beyond principal applicants in the skilled worker category. The first posits that the current approach, which only applies to one member of each family in the skilled worker category, could be improved if families are considered as a whole. Second, a mixed category whose criteria incorporate both extended family relationships (beyond the current ones) and human capital is suggested. To understand the contexte and motivation for these proposals, the Act and its implementation are surveyed, and the characteristics of points systems are discussed. » (résumé)
