New Canada immigration

On 27 February 2008, Canadian immigration new rules 2008 were introduced under skilled worker Category. After modifications in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, federal skilled worker applications are evaluated for eligibility according to their working experience and pre-requisite qualifications in 38 occupations in which Canada is facing shortage of skills workers.

These criterions affect you if you applied on or after February 27, 2008. If you applied earlier than February 27, 2008, your application will be processed according to the old system. This new Canadian immigration program gives a fast-track the processing of visas to Canada for highly skilled migrant.

The Canadian Minister of Immigration claimed that the new rules for Canada immigration will expedite the immigration process for those immigrants whose skills are most needed in Canada job market, as well as reducing the huge backlog of visa applications presently queued for processing.

The Canada new immigration rules will apply to everyone looking for immigration to Canada after February 28, 2008. But these Canada new immigration laws will not applied to over 900,000 applicants who were waiting in line for processing before February 28, 2008. Extra resources will be given by the Canadian government to deal with the backlog because the backlog has to be processed under the old rules.

As per current rules of immigration to Canada new migrants with skills urgently needed by Canadian job market may find their visa applications processed much faster than ever.

There are some people from India, ( jammu and kashmir, working as cooks in restaurants )who are in Canada on fake passport. They have entered Canada, are a real danger to your country.
As far as the date is concerned, Most probably they have entered in the begining of 2009.

From Miss Philippine Nurse
Is it true that processing time for immigrant visa in canada is 9 months? How about IELTS, am I going to take the general training or academic which is usually the one reqiured for nurses? Are we nurses assured that there is a job, like LPN, waiting for us there? meaning are there vacancies in the hospitals? Thank you

Canada does NOT accept degrees or training from other countries so generally speaking you will have to re-train or get a degrees in Canada before you can work here.

I have just finished installing 373 toilets in a rental apartment building. This building has tenants mostly from Pakistan, India and Afghanistan. I am appalled at how many people in this building do not work. They are living on welfare and we the tax payers are supporting them. How is this possible that people can come here so freely and not work, who sponsers them and how do they pass the process of immigrating to Canada? Most sleep half the day, the apartments are so dirty my plumbers did not want to enter. There are many people who would love to immigrate to Canada and work hard. Let them in and put more restrictions on countries that do not want to adapt to Canadian customs. If they are not working because they have to pray 5 times a day, they will not keep a job here. Welfare is far too easy, staying home and doing nothing is even better. then there are the 5 kids that we are also supporting. when is this going to stop! Canada Pension will not exist for any of us in the future, as many of these people do not pay taxes or contribute.
