BREAKING NEWS! FSW Cat 1 is paused from 1st July 2012   6 comments

As per the rumours in the Province yesterday, it is has been officially confirmed by Minister Kenney today. CIC are not accepting any applications from 1st July 2012 for Federal Skilled Worker at all, unless you have a job offer or a Canadian PhD.

Effectively job offer is the new Category 1 (FSW1) and PhD is the new Category 2 (FSW2).

This is due to be reviewed around January 2013.

The full announcement can be read here:

So winners and losers as usual. The big winners are currently applicants who applied after Feb 2008 and before July 2012 who should see a quicker turnaround of their applications with no new applications coming in.

The biggest losers of course will be those who were planning to apply this year. Regrettably those people will have to either get a job offer, or wait to see what is announced New Year 2013.
