A closer look at the 29 in demand Occupations

>> Sunday, December 5, 2010

Last June 26, 2010, the Citizenship and Immigration Canada, made a revision on the processing of Federal skilled Worker program for the Permanent Residents application for Canada.

Part of the things they changed was the list of Eligible Occupations. From the 38 high demand Occupations, they announced a new list tabbed as the "29 In Demand Occupations".

And I quote:

"Effective immediately, to be eligible to apply as a federal skilled worker, applicants must either have a job offer, or they must have experience in one of 29 in-demand occupations. These occupations were identified through analysis of updated labour market information and consultations with provinces, territories, stakeholders and the public.

For those applying under the occupation list, the government will limit the number of applications considered for processing to 20,000 per year as a way to better manage the supply of applications with labour market demand. Within the 20,000 limit, a maximum of 1,000 applications per occupation will be considered. The limit does not apply to applicants with a job offer.

In addition, all federal skilled worker and Canadian Experience Class applicants must submit the results of an independent language test before they will be considered."


Moreover, applicants now need to submit Certified True Copies/Original documents to the Centralized Intake Office - CIO, in the first stage of their applications.

Which would include the International English Language Testing System - IELTS - results.

Those who are eligible to apply, will benefit from the speedy processing that the changes brought forward.

Those who will apply right away will receive the results within 6 months to a year, as compared to the old system where applications were processed within 6 years.



Herewith is the actual list; [format - NOC code actual Occupation]:

0631 Restaurant and Food Service Managers

0811 Primary Production Managers (Except Agriculture)

1122 Professional Occupations in Business Services to Management

1233 Insurance Adjusters and Claims Examiners

At present one of the occupations listed, 1122 Professional Occupations in Business Services to Management has already closed because the quota for that occupation has already been filled out, as well as Occupation 3152 Registered Nurses.
--------------

It is normal that because of said changes, applicants will have apprehensions.

The following are some the most common concerns of an applicant:

1. What if I do not get the English Proficiency results that I need? * (To know about this requirement please click - IELTS and Canada Immigration and IELTS Results)

2. What if the quota gets filled out for my application before I complete the requirements needed?

3. What is the guarantee that I will get the Visa when I apply?

There are actually several ways to look at the changes in the regulation.

But before I go there let me pose this question to you.

Do you really want to get a Permanent Residents Visa for Canada?

Why I ask is because, the degree of commitment that you have for your plan will greatly affect the outcome of your application.

One way of treating this application is to give up your plan to Immigrate to Canada.

If you feel that your apprehensions are too great to overcome, then do not send in your application.

What can I say, Canada is not for everyone.

On the other hand, if you really want to go to Canada because you want to get that better quality of life for yourself and for your Family, VIA Canada's various Social Benefits , then I suggest that you take a closer look at the options being laid on your plate.

Sure your Education and work experience has gotten you as far as getting you your current Job in the Philippines, but is it enough to safeguard your well-being if ever you experience uncontrollable and unforeseen calamities in life such as accident, prolonged sickness in the Family or death in the Family?

Not to mention the usual high cost of living, due to your current expenses in the family which may Include the high cost of Education and Health Care.

In Canada Education can be free, Health Care is Free, the government will even take part in the expense of raising your children c/o Canada's Child Tax Benefit- CTB (read about Canada Benefits for your Family by clicking this link).

To take advantage of said benefits an applicant must take note of the changes in the
Federal Skilled Workers application processing system, as mentioned above.

An applicant, must submit their original-valid English Exam Results - IELTS.

An applicant must comply with the set of documents required by the Centralized Intake Office - CIO, *to read more please click on CIC website Checklist.

In a nutshell, those who will benefit from the current - Fast Processing speed are those who are ready to submit their applications.

So how does these changes affect you?

If you are in the list of Eligible occupations for processing (29 in demand occupations for processing ), it is without a doubt that you should hurry and submit your application ASAP!

The list of eligible occupations is subject to change, and has limited slots.

If you delay your application and the list of occupation changes, you will no longer be able to apply.

If the quota for your occupation gets filled out, because you delayed filing your application, you will no longer be able to apply.

Do not wait till you get your IELTS results, before you start gathering your documents.

You should do this simultaneously.

You may think that you have all the necessary documents ready, but in our experience, it is likely that you do not have the correct requirements at hand.

The CIO is very strict, inconsistent applications will be returned.

Incomplete applications will be returned.

Send in incorrect documents and or forms and your application will be returned.

Part of our services as a consultant, is to guide you get the correct documents as you try to complete your full application package.

As we say small mistakes causes big problems, start it right the first time and safeguard your application results.

A qualified applicant must not hesitate to send in his or her application, a proper and timely application means better chances of getting the permanent Residents Visa.

For those applicants who are uncertain of applying because they still do not have most of the requirements like the IELTS exam, I have this to say...

Why did you study in college?

When you were at it were you certain that you will pass your board exam?

Were you guaranteed of employment?

A better quality of life by finishing your degree?

If you did not pass your board exam, will you not take it again?

Sad to say, that in life there is no guarantee, but rather than being fearful of not being able to comply with the requirements, you should at least find out what they are, and decide whether being able to go to Canada is what you want.

If it is, then do everything in your power to comply with your requirements, get our services and benefit from our experience in overcoming possible problems in your application.

Sending in your application is necessary in achieving a result.

Do not be like the person who prays to win the Lottery but never buys a ticket! :)

If your occupation is still not within the list of Eligible occupations, but have experience in National Occupations Classifications - NOC - O, A or B (Managerial, Skilled or Trade or Professional Occupations click on this link), and you want to immigrate to Canada, you should give us a call and ask about the Privilege Plan.

This particular plan will give you a head start, make you ready for the time that you are already eligible to apply for an Immigrants Visa for Canada.

As we speak, our serious clients are already starting to complete their full application package to anticipate the change in the list. So that if their occupations are called they can file right away and be sure that their applications will be part of the quota that the Canadian Government set.

Since the Full Application package is required on the first part of the application process, if you are an interested client, you have no choice but to do the same. Not doing so would mean that you are taking away the opportunity to apply for the program.

What is good about this plan is, since the same set of requirements that we compile are also the set that is required by other countries open for Immigration like UK, New Zealand, Australia and US, as well as the requirements needed in a job application for Abroad, going through with the Privilege plan makes you ready for any opportunity for Immigration or work that may come your way.
---------------------

A smart person does not just ask about his opportunity for Canada, and only starts completing his or her application when his or her Occupation is already in in the list of Eligible Occupations.

A smart person, makes sure that he or she is already complete with his application requirements even before his occupation is already in the list of Eligible Occupations, so that he can file right away when an opportunity opens up for him.

The Privilege Plan aims to do just that, for a minimal fee, we will help you get ready with your documentary requirements that will allow you to take advantage of your opportunity when it is already the time that your occupation gets called.

It is money well spent.

It is sometimes funny to note, that a big portion of the applicants that I talk to, wants to either Immigrate or work outside of the country but does not even have a passport.
------------------

Getting your documents in order, means that you are opening doors and windows of opportunity for yourself.

Be the smart person and give us a call right now.

Katrina Abello Gonzales Says Hi from the Maple Leaf Place

>> Saturday, November 27, 2010




One of my favorite client, Ms. Katrina Abello Gonzales sent us a note right after they landed in Canada.

And it reads...

WIth all my heart, you can post it on your blog..

This is my sixth day here in Toronto, Canada. I already met few Pinoys and they were surprised how fast I got my PR status. Some had been here around two or three years ago thru work permits. Yet, they are still in the process of getting the PR. Then, I finally realized.. those people in CIC are dead serious. I have always been skeptic about things.. well, it is in the veins of every auditor. Who's gonna believe that you can have your PR at a very short time? I mean.. from the time I submitted my documents to Canadian Embassy in Manila, it just took around four months to be notified. Had the docs sent on September 2009 then I got the visa notification on February 2010. The only thing is I got married but in God's mercy, I am here now with my husband. It is indeed a new life for us. And I think, a very good start..






To Sir Jay and Ms. Tina, thanks for the patience --- to answer my endless demands! And thank goodness for the friendship.. should you have the time to visit Canada.. Our doors will always be open for you. It is such a pleasure to have you as a our consultants and kakulitan as well. Sorry for the hassle. Just include my name in your list of most demanding clients! Send my regards to Tummy Lee Jones.. wahehe!

Check out some pics. Till next time. Super sa English na ko noh? Canadian resident eh! haha.. duguan na ko dito.. waaaahh..



Miss you both..


From the maple leaf place,



Katrina Abello-Gonzales
_______

Katrina, applied when the eligible occupations still included Accountants, she was fortunate that she applied while she was still eligible.

I actually had to push her to apply because she had some apprehensions at first.

But when she finally started, she was very focused and determined, and as the fruit of her labors she and her husband are already in Canada.

Although, Accountants are no longer in the list of eligible occupations, those who aspire to go to Canada must make sure that they will be able to file their applications right away.

As the regulations for Permanent Residents application in Canada changes, it now requires that documents must be complete on the first stage of the application process.

Aspiring clients who wants to go to Canada, must get ready in advance to take advantage of this opportunity.

Together again

>> Wednesday, November 24, 2010


Together again

Like Beverly Fernandez, another client of mine Maria Bernice Hayag, is one of those people who got left behind when their parents applied for Permanent Residents Visa for Canada because they were no longer considered as dependents at the time.




Citizenship and Immigration Canada, defines dependents as:

Children who are under 22 years of age and does not have a spouse or common law partnerand,

Full time students who are substantially dependent on a parent for financial support, since before the age of 22, or since becomming a spouse or common law partner (if it happend before age 22)children who were financially dependent on the parents since before age 22


Although Bernice was not yet married at the time of her parents application, she was already more than 22 years old, making her not eligible for processing as a dependent.

Last November 2008, the Federal Skilled Workers program was revised, applicants with at least 1 year work experience in the 38 high demand occupations were eligible to apply and get their application results within 6 months to a year.

With some stroke of luck, Bernice had previous work experience as a Research and Development Chemist which fell undercode 9212 Supervisors in Petroleum, Gas and Chemical Processing and Utilities.

One of the eligible occupations for processing listed in the 38 High Demand Occupations.

When Bernice and her husband Hanzen went to the office to inquire last May 10, 2009, it was on the same day that thy signed an agreement for us to process their application.


Joggling her time between work, family and their cute little girl Brenz, we completed their application package and submitted it to the Centralized Intake Office.

At this time, applicants did not need to submit their English proficiency results (IELTS), unlike the current regulation where applicants have to submit it with photocopies of documents needed for the second stage.

Almost all of my successful applicants then did not know for certain what results they will get from their exam, but this did not stop them in pursuing their dreams.

With our help, they know their targets and requirements.

They did not hesitate, most of them applied and when they do not pass the English Exam - IELTS, the first time they take it again and again until they get the scores that they need to get the Visa.

Bernice though is gifted in English, she took the IELTS once and aced it.

Scores:

Listening - 9
Reading - 7
Writing - 7
Speaking - 7

Total band score of 7.5

Making sure that Bernice will get credit in her work experience, an editor was assigned to help her with the Detailed Job Description.

Last July 10, 2009, after a lot of hard work, we filed the full application package of Bernice at the Centralized Intake Office at Nova Scotia.

Received a positive assessment on September 10, 2009

Being given the 120 days deadline to submit the full application package, we sent complete file to the Canadian Embassy last November 17, 2009

A little over two months after January 21, 2010 we received her Medical Notice

During this time, they encountered a problem with the medical results of her Child, but was able to get through it quickly

So last April 12, 2010 we received their Visa Notice

And finally last May 13, 2010, we gave them their Permanent Residents Visa for Canada.

At present Bernice and Hanzen is already with their lovely daughter.
--------------

This can be your story too...

It is always nice to write about the successful application of our clients.

More so when it is about the reunification of a family member.

Whenever I conduct a seminar for Canada, I always tell my applicants that both their Education and Work experience are their assets.

And it is in Canada where they can fully maximize the benefits of their assets.

At present there is a new list of Eligible application, called the 29 In Demand Occupations(click on this link and find out if your occupation is on the list), being eligible to apply is one thing, applying for your opportunity is another.

Having four years work experience in the list of eligible occupations means you have a great chance to immigrate.

If you are serious about your application, you should apply right now, if you don't the demand for your occupation will be filled out and you will no longer be able to apply.

If you have problems and or apprehensions about your application, please contact us, our more than 2 decades of experience in dealing with Permanent Residents Visa applications, maybe of benefit for you.
Apply now! Before its too late.

re post - 29 in Demand Occupations - Immigrate within 6 months to a year

New 29 In-Demand Occupations, New Application Procedure


IMMIGRATE TO CANADA WITHIN 6 months to a year!!!!

Like what I have always been saying in my posts, Immigration Regulations are subject to change and that the longer you delay your decision to apply, the more you are risking your eligibility.

And it has changed sooner that we have expected it to change.

There has been a change in the Ministerial Instruction affecting Federal Skilled Worker program applications.

Effective June 26, 2010, Citizenship and Immigration Canada will only process applications under Federal Skilled Worker program only, if you have:


# a valid offer of arranged employment, OR

# one year of continuous full-time or equivalent part-time paid work experience in at least one of the 29 in-demand occupations list(Click on this link to read list of eligible occupations)


Temporary foreign workers and international students will no longer be part of the Federal Skilled Worker program, may now apply under Canadian Experience Class.

The new Ministerial Instruction also covers changes in the application procedures. For example, the Simplified application Process is now totally wiped out, in sending your application to Centralized Intake Office (CIO), you now need to submit results of an independent language test (IELTS or TEF: Test d’évaluation de français) even if your first language is English or French.

Moreover, you also need to submit copies of the documents required, specifically by the Canadian Visa Office responsible in processing your application.

What's in it for you?

1. For Clients who has filed to CIO before June 26, 2010, Waiting for Assessment Notice

If your application was received by Centralized Intake Office (CIO) before June 26, 2010, even if and your occupation is no longer included in the new 29 in-demand occupations list, the changes will not affect your application.

As per the Ministerial Instruction, applications received before June 26, 2010, will be processed according to the rules that were in effect at that time you filed your application.

However, some individuals are saying that the publication of the Citizenship and Immigration Canada, wasn't clear in stating the basis of the deadline, whether its the receipt by Centralized Intake Office or Canadian Visa Office handling the applicants files.

To clarify, here's what was stated in the Canada Gazette.

All Federal Skilled Worker applications received by the Centralized Intake Office - CIO in Sydney, Nova Scotia, on a date prior to the Canada Gazette publication date shall continue to be considered for processing having regard to the first set of Ministerial Instructions. [Source]




It was published June 26, 2010. It clearly states that if your application was received by CIO before June 26, 2010, and even if your occupation is no longer included in the new in-demand occupations, your application would still be processed.

2. Interested to immigrate to Canada, but your Occupation is not included in the new 29 in-demand list

If you are interested to live and work in Canada but your occupation is not included in the new list of priority occupations, you still have the chance to immigrate to Canada if:

# You have an arranged employment in Canada, or

# You have somebody to sponsor you under Provincial Nominee Program


Although, these two options are not that easy to come by, it is not impossible to get a PR Visa through these programs, in fact I have had clients who was able to take advantage of these programs and are currently in Canada.

What is clear is that you should really start preparing yourself for the IELTS Examination, as well as start preparing your documents.

For reasons that all programs for Permanent Residents Visa for Canada, require both requirements.

The objective is to be able to file your application immediately either when the list changes or another PR VISA application is favorable to you.

You must learn from the mistakes of some of my clients.

If you will prepare your documents only when your occupation is included, then it may be too late for you.

Remember that Citizenship and Immigration Canada will be imposing a cap on the number of applications it will process per occupation for each year.

Be ready!

For obvious reasons, only those applicants who are ready can really take advantage of different opportunities presented by the Canadian Government.

3. Filed before February 27, 2008, Occupation included in the new priority list

If you have a pending PR Visa application, whether it's under FSW or PNP, and that your occupation is included in the new priority list, you may want to submit a new application to CIO in order to expedite the process.

Simultaneous applications, are allowed!

The Visa Office in Manila is not yet finished in evaluating your applications (for Clients filed in 2004 until February 26, 2008).

It may take a while before applications filed in 2007 and 2006 will be processed.

If you decide to submit a new application under the revised Federal Skilled Worker program, you will get a result within 6-12 months. The only disadvantage of doing this is that you may not be able to refund the processing fee you paid to the Visa Office before. You will need to pay another visa processing fee.

4. Included in the list, Not yet filed to CIO

If your occupation is included in the new list of in-demand occupations and that you are seriously considering the opportunity to live and work in Canada, YOU MUST FILE YOUR APPLICATION RIGHT NOW!

Important Note:

For the next twelve months, Citizenship and Immigration Canada will only consider a maximum of 20,000 complete applications under the occupation list. Within the 20,000 cap, a maximum of 1,000 federal skilled worker applications per occupation will be considered for processing each year.

For sure, only those who are ready to process their applications can take advantage of the new Fast and Easy Processing System, that is why whether you are in the new 29 In demand list or not, and wants to Immigrate to Canada, you really should consider starting with the compilation of the Documentary and other related requirements for your eventual application.

Like some of my clients, if you delay your decision to get started, you too will miss out on this great opportunity for yourself and your Family.

IMPORTANT! The same list of Eligible occupations will be used for the next change in the regulation on July 1, 2011, apply now!!!!

If you are in the Philippines, you may attend our orientation seminar this Saturday at 10am.



Seminar Fee: P300.00 per attendee

Canada Visa Application while working abroad

>> Saturday, August 28, 2010



While others may seem content with their lives as Overseas Foreign Workers where they earn much much more than what they would normally make in the Philippines, Cherlita Bacolot had other ideas.

As a nurse, she have been given the opportunity to work at Abu dhabi but she always dreamed of being together with her family while having better income opportunities, that was why she inquired about Immigrating to Canada, by filling out the on-line assessment form of our Company (Canadian Immigration Consultancy, way back 2006.

At that time the processing period for a Permanent Residents Visa application took 6 years, so she got discouraged.

It was not until November 2008, when she learned about the revision in the Federal Skilled Workers-Permanent Residents Visa application for Canada, where eligible applicants will get their application results within 6 months to a year, that her interest was rekindled.



Since Cherlita was at abroad, she sent her husband Gil Bacolot to the office to inquire about the program. When they saw the requirements needed it almost made them decide no to apply anymore because the Canadian Government required a lot of documents.

With proper planning, I was able to show them how they would be able to comply all the requirements even with their busy schedules, so early 2009 they started the contract to engage in our services.

It was not easy, as Mr. Gil, was also an executive at a lending company that he works with.

Despite all that, we were able to file their application to the Centralized Intake Office, with the expertise of our documentations department, they were able to get a Positive assessment from the CIO.

Then April 24, 2009, we submitted their full Application Package to the Canadian Embassy.

Along the way, we experienced a bump in their application when Gil Bacolot, was required to submit his police clearance for his previous work experience in Saudi Arabia 22 years ago.

Since he no longer had his documents at that time, it was difficult to provide this requirement.

But as they say, if you persists, you will get what you want.

That is why on October 10, 2009, they got their Medical Notice.

At that time, Cherlita had her Medical Exam at Abu Dhabi, while the rest of the family had theirs in Metro Manila.

March 201o they got their Visa Notice, at this point Cherlita decided to go back to the Philippines and wait for their Visa after they sent their passports to the Embassy.

Last May 13, 2010, their Visa's was released, at present the entire Family is already in Canada.




-----------------

This can be your story too...

A parents love for their children is immeasurable. I can still remember when my late Father would say, "study hard, a good education is the only inheritance that I can leave you", this was because in my time, having a college Education was an edge - that will help me in my chances of having a better quality of life.

I was born poor, my parents sacrificed a lot to get me to college, and I am forever grateful.

Question is at present, will a college Education guarantee your chances of having a better quality of life? Take a look at what is happening at present? Does your children stand a chance?

With our current circumstances in the Philippines, it is really hard to tell.

This is maybe the reason why, both Cherlita and Gil Bacolot still applied to Immigrate to Canada, because they want to take - "giving their children a better quality
of life " - to the next level.

You see, it will not be easy for them to start their carriers in Canada, all over again.

Wanting to give a better future for their Children is more important for them compared to the hardships that they had to bear in starting their life a new in Canada.

With the social benefits for a Permanent Resident in Canada they are certain that the lives of their children will be better off financially, at least, as compared to their lives in the Philippines.

Their do not have the option to Immigrate to Canada even if they want to, this is because they still lack the necessary work experience to become eligible for the 6 months to a year Immigration program.

Their Children can always go back to the Philippines if they want to, but it was Cherlita and Gil Bacolot who gave them the option to Immigrate to Canada.

How much do they love their Children? I would say with out a doubt, that they love their children very much.

If like them, you also want to immigrate in Canada and would like to find out if you are qualified, please click on this On-line Assessment Form link.

Should you already know that you are qualified because you have experience in the In Demand List of Eligible occupations , you should start your application right now or else you will be risking your eligibility!

If you delay your application and the regulation changes again, you will no longer be able to apply.

Melissa Chavez's application story



As the years pass by, I sometimes can not remember the first day that a clients visits our office to inquire about their options for Canada.

Not in the case of Melissa Chavez, a Financial Officer in one of the well known Telecommunications company of the Philippines.

For reason's that her first visit to our office is also the first day of operation of our Branch at the SM Mall of Asia.

My first impression of Ms. Mellisa is that of a very reserved person for reasons that she had very few concerns during our discussion, which quickly changed when, right after the orientation she decided to start her application on the same day.


Despite her overflowing workload, she managed to find the time to complete all her documents, she is probably one of the best clients that I have had, I did not encounter any complaints from her, nor did I her her tell me any apprehensions for her application, when I ask her for a document, she complies right away.

That is why on May 20, 2009 we were able to file her application to the Centralized Intake Office (CIO) in Nova Scotia.

At that time, the applicants were allowed to file their applications even without proving that they could comply with the documents for the second stage. Which actually means that she filed her application, even though she still did not have her IELTS Results, Work, Education, Identity and Civil Status Documents, etc.

Melissa's application, is far from perfect even before we started she knew that necessary steps needed to be taken to make her become eligible for the revised Federal Skilled Workers application.

For one, the work certifications that she had at the time did not correspond to the list of eligible occupations. Good thing that the editors of the company I work with-Canadian Immigration Consultancy was able to illustrate her real duties well which made her get a Positive assessment from the CIO.

Religiously, she provided us with the complete set of required documents which allowed us to file her application to the Canadian Embassy in Manila within the allowed time frame.

Her diligence paid of well last January 21, 2010 we received her Medical Notice

Visa Notice on March 24, 2010

And finally her Visa was Released - April 30, 2010

Now I know that first impressions shouldn't be a basis to determine the characteristics of a person.

For what I mistook as being reserved turned out to be a person with great determination. Mellisa Chavez is probably one of my favorite clients for very specific reason, in one occasion I asked her in front of an audience, which she did not like at all, "Mam", Applying for an Immigrants Visa as it turns out, requires investment in both time and money, do you have both?", with out even blinking she automatically answered me, "Wala!"

So I asked her, "so how did you manage to get your Visa then?", to which she calmly answered, "Di ko alam, all I know is if you want to get an immigrants Visa you should not make any excuses you should do what is necessary to make that happen for you." What can I say, she said it all.
----------------
This can be your story too....

If you want to get an immigrants Visa, I will repeat, you should do what is necessary to make it happen for you. No excuses.

Moreover, you should start your application right away, when you find out that you are qualified for the program.

At present, there is a new set of eligible occupations for processing labeled as, the 29 in demand occupation.

Financial Managers are no longer in the list, it was a good thing that Ms.Chavez applied when she did because if she haven't done so and delayed her application, she can no longer apply in the present regulation.

If you want to find out if your are qualified fill out this form ---- Online Assessment form.

On the other hand if you have already been assessed and know that you are qualified, you should start right now, otherwise you will be risking your eligibility or worst throwing away your opportunity.

It is really your choice.

Learn your options!

New 29 In-Demand Occupations, New Application Procedure

>> Monday, July 5, 2010

Like what I have always been saying in my posts, Immigration Regulations are subject to change and that the longer you delay your decision to apply, the more you are risking your eligibility.

And it has changed sooner that we have expected it to change.

There has been a change in the Ministerial Instruction affecting Federal Skilled Worker program applications.

Effective June 26, 2010, Citizenship and Immigration Canada will only process applications under Federal Skilled Worker program only, if you have:

# a valid offer of arranged employment, OR

# one year of continuous full-time or equivalent part-time paid work experience in at least one of the 29 in-demand occupations list, click on (this link to view complete list)


Temporary foreign workers and international students will no longer be part of the Federal Skilled Worker program, may now apply under Canadian Experience Class.

The new Ministerial Instruction also covers changes in the application procedures. For example, the Simplified application Process is now totally wiped out, in sending your application to Centralized Intake Office (CIO), you now need to submit results of an independent language test (IELTS or TEF: Test d’évaluation de français) even if your first language is English or French.

Moreover, you also need to submit copies of the documents required, specifically by the Canadian Visa Office responsible in processing your application.

What's in it for you?


1. For Clients who has filed to CIO before June 26, 2010, Waiting for Assessment Notice

If your application was received by Centralized Intake Office (CIO) before June 26, 2010, even if and your occupation is no longer included in the new 29 in-demand occupations list, the changes will not affect your application.

As per the Ministerial Instruction, applications received before June 26, 2010, will be processed according to the rules that were in effect at that time you filed your application.

However, some individuals are saying that the publication of the Citizenship and Immigration Canada, wasn't clear in stating the basis of the deadline, whether its the receipt by Centralized Intake Office or Canadian Visa Office handling the applicants files.

To clarify, here's what was stated in the Canada Gazette.


All Federal Skilled Worker applications received by the Centralized Intake Office - CIO in Sydney, Nova Scotia, on a date prior to the Canada Gazette publication date shall continue to be considered for processing having regard to the first set of Ministerial Instructions. [Source]



It was published June 26, 2010. It clearly states that if your application was received by CIO before June 26, 2010, and even if your occupation is no longer included in the new in-demand occupations, your application would still be processed.

2. Interested to immigrate to Canada, but your Occupation is not included in the new 29 in-demand list

If you are interested to live and work in Canada but your occupation is not included in the new list of priority occupations, you still have the chance to immigrate to Canada if:

# You have an arranged employment in Canada, or

# You have somebody to sponsor you under Provincial Nominee Program


Although, these two options are not that easy to come by, it is not impossible to get a PR Visa through these programs, in fact I have had clients who was able to take advantage of these programs and are currently in Canada.

What is clear is that you should really start preparing yourself for the IELTS Examination, as well as start preparing your documents.

For reasons that all programs for Permanent Residents Visa for Canada, require both requirements.

The objective is to be able to file your application immediately either when the list changes or another PR VISA application is favorable to you.

You must learn from the mistakes of some of my clients.

If you will prepare your documents only when your occupation is included, then it may be too late for you.

Remember that Citizenship and Immigration Canada will be imposing a cap on the number of applications it will process per occupation for each year.

Be ready!

For obvious reasons, only those applicants who are ready can really take advantage of different opportunities presented by the Canadian Government.

3. Filed before February 27, 2008, Occupation included in the new priority list

If you have a pending PR Visa application, whether it's under FSW or PNP, and that your occupation is included in the new priority list, you may want to submit a new application to CIO in order to expedite the process.

Simultaneous applications, are allowed!

The Visa Office in Manila is not yet finished in evaluating your applications (for Clients filed in 2004 until February 26, 2008).

It may take a while before applications filed in 2007 and 2006 will be processed.

If you decide to submit a new application under the revised Federal Skilled Worker program, you will get a result within 6-12 months. The only disadvantage of doing this is that you may not be able to refund the processing fee you paid to the Visa Office before. You will need to pay another visa processing fee.

4. Included in the list, Not yet filed to CIO

If your occupation is included in the new list of in-demand occupations and that you are seriously considering the opportunity to live and work in Canada, YOU MUST FILE YOUR APPLICATION RIGHT NOW!

IMPORTANT! The same list of Eligible occupations will be used for the next change in the regulation on July 1, 2011, apply now!!!!

Important Note:

For the next twelve months, Citizenship and Immigration Canada will only consider a maximum of 20,000 complete applications under the occupation list. Within the 20,000 cap, a maximum of 1,000 federal skilled worker applications per occupation will be considered for processing each year.

For sure, only those who are ready to process their applications can take advantage of the new Fast and Easy Processing System, that is why whether you are in the new 29 In demand list or not, and wants to Immigrate to Canada, you really should consider starting with the compilation of the Documentary and other related requirements for your eventual application.

Like some of my clients, if you delay your decision to get started, you too will miss out on this great opportunity for yourself and your Family.
