August 2010 Visa Bulletin

Friday, August 6, 2010


It's been more than a month now since the 2nd Ministeril Instruction identifying the 29 High Demand Occupations - the priority list - was issued. The June 26, 2010 ministerial instruction put a limit on the number of applications to be processed for the next twelve months. Only a maximum of 20,000 Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) applications without the Arranged Employment Opinion (AEO) will be considered for processing. Within the 20,000 quota, a cap of a maximum of 1,000 FSW applications per job classification will be considered. Occupations may change after a year as directed by the Minister of the Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

The immigration quota may be met earlier than expected. If your occupation is included in the list, let us get your application filed NOW!

New Application Procedures

The first phase of Federal Skilled Worker program application process is sending your application to Centralized Intake Office (CIO). The following must be submitted:

  • Complete application forms

  • Original IELTS Exam result

  • Copies of supporting documents (List of Requirements)

  • Processing Fee (Should be in a form of bank draft payable to Receiver General for Canada. You may also pay using credit card)


  • For those not in the priority list and whose application is not yet filed, let me remind you again. It is to your advantage if you will get your documents ready as early as now. It may not make sense to you now, but if the list changed and included your occupation, you may regret not doing it earlier. Considering the quota/cap being implemented now, you must be able to file your application the minute your occupation opens up.


    Provincial Nominee Program


    Another alternative program to live and work in Canada is through Provincial Nominee Program. Most provinces in Canada have an agreement with the Government of Canada that allows them to nominate immigrants who wish to settle in that province. If you choose to immigrate to Canada as a provincial nominee, you must first apply to the province where you wish to settle and complete its provincial nomination process. The province will consider your application based on its immigration needs and your genuine intention to settle there. http://www.gatewaytocanada.com/2007/08/provincial-nominee-program.html


    Success Stories

    Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen
    Mr. Aries Dacir, a Certified Public Accountant, attended one of my seminar schedules in Angeles City. Right there and then, he decided to get our services to help him on his application for Permanent Residence in Canada. A decision he did not regret.

    It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped
    Mr. Jimmy Rillo and his family attended our Visa Party last July 3 at Bayview Park Hotel in Manila. It was the first time I met him in person. We started communicating via email about 3 years ago ago. He was working abroad as a Physical Therapist at that time. Sometime last year, still working abroad, he decided to sign up a consultancy agreement with us.
