Limit On Federal Skilled Workers Are Adding Up

02 Nov 2010


CIC released an update on the number of complete applications received for processing under the Federal Skilled Worker category. Canadian government placed a limit on the number of Federal Skilled Worker applications, i.e., maximum 20,000 applications will be processed before Jun 30, 2011. Within this 20,000 limit, a maximum of 1,000 FSW applications per occupation will be considered for processing. However, the limit does not apply to applications with job offer from a Canadian employer.

Total applications received toward to overall cap of 20,000: 2,785 as of October 27, 2010

To qualify for the Federal Skilled Worker category of immigration without a Canadian job offer, the principal applicant must have worked for at least one year in the past 10 years in one of the 29 listed occupations. Moreover, a maximum of 1,000 applications will be considered under any one of these eligible occupations.

An experts advice is as follows, “Be quick with your application, or risk losing your opportunity of qualifying for a permanent resident visa under the Federal Skilled Worker category.”

However, applications can be forwarded through provincial nomination programs or under the Quebec Skilled Worker category.
