This would be the last time that you may apply for permanent residency to Canada as a computer network technician under the Federal Skilled Worker program. Starting January 1, 2015, you would have to compete with everybody to get the Canadian Green Card once the Express Entry Program is in place.

A green card is reserved for you once you establish eligibility based on your age, education, experience, and English proficiency. You may get bonus points if you have a spouse or partner and more bonus points if you have a qualified family member in Canada.
