Federal Skilled Worker Program to temporarily pause on new applications
Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has announced changes to the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and federal Immigrant Investor Program (IIP). Effective July 1, 2012, CIC will place a temporary pause on new applications.
Application intake for the FSWP is expected to resume in January 2013, however the IIP pause will remain in place until further notice.
The temporary pause on FSWP applications does not apply to candidates with offers of arranged employment or those applying under the PhD eligibility stream.
