Changes on Canada Immigration Policies

Monday, June 27, 2011

Canada announced changes to its immigration policies. Basically, a reduce intake of immigration applications.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is limiting the number of new applications it will consider in certain categories of the federal economic immigration stream. Effective July 1, 2011, the changes will affect new applicants to the federal Skilled Worker, federal Immigrant Investor and federal Entrepreneur programs.

Read the entire CIC News Release about these changes here.

Federal skilled workers applications will be limited to 10, 000 a year. And within that limit, a maximum of only 500 new applications in each of the 29 priority/high demand occupations will be considered starting July 1, 2011.

In addition, a cap of 700 on new federal investor applications and a temporary moratorium on new federal entrepreneur applications will be introduced.

The 500 new application limit does not augur well for new applicants. I would advise them to seek the help of authorized immigration consultants immediately to explore their opportunities in migrating and working in Canada.

For those with pending applications, it is hoped that with these changes on Canada Immigration Policies, their applications can finally move forward.
