BREAKING NEWS: CIC scrapping the backlog is now looking like a reality!   2 comments

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/media/releases/2012/2012-03-30a.asp

“Under proposed legislation, CIC will close the files of FSW applicants who applied before February 27, 2008, and for whom an immigration officer has not made a decision based on selection criteria by March 29, 2012. This is expected to affect around 280,000 applicants, including their dependants. CIC will begin the process of returning the full amount of fees paid to the Department by these affected FSW applicants. For those who have passed the selection criteria stage – approximately 20,000 people – CIC will continue processing their applications until they are approved for entry into Canada or not.”

This is no longer a rumour but is on the official CIC website.

This is at the very least extremely unfair on those applicants who have been waiting 4,5,6,7,8 years patiently to be fairly processed, and are now having that taken away from them.

This could also have very serious legal ramifications IMO if they don’t dot their i’s and cross their t’s when they legislate this!!
