Esta info me llego de mis abogados y quiero compartirla con ustedes ya que todo lo que sepamos siempre es importante…
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE APPLIES ONLY TO FEDERAL FILES, DEPOSITED WITH THE EMBASSY ON OR AFTER FEBRUARY 27, 2008, INCLUDING FILES YET TO BE DEPOSITED. IF YOU ARE APPLYING UNDER THE QUEBEC SKILLED WORKER PROGRAM, AND HAVE RECEIVED THIS MESSAGE IN ERROR, PLEASE DISREGARD. IT DOES NOT APPLY TO QUEBEC APPLICANTS.
We hope that this message finds you well.
Please be informed that new immigration legislation is currently being passed in Canada. On June 18th, 2008, the legislation was actually adopted by the Senate. Having said that, it is understood that the Immigration Minister will now consult with the provinces before implementing any changes.
Due to the fact that your file has been or will be deposited after the new law took affect, retro-active to February 27, 2008, it will indeed fall under the current immigration laws, once submitted. This could affect your application in such a way that 1 of the following 4 scenarios could occur:
The application could get «fast-tracked», if yours is on a list of «occupations in high demand», (please note that we do not yet have the list, so we are not certain exactly which occupations will be included in this category);
The application process could proceed as usual, including the submission of the application under the Simplified Application Process, the receipt of the AOR from the Embassy, the submission of all required documents, the issuance of the Medical Requisitions and, finally, the Visa Notification;
The file could be sent back and the federal processing fees refunded; in light of the fact this is new legislation and no specific details have yet been released regarding the return of applications, we cannot yet comment with certainty on this matter. It appears that there will be a chance that some files could get returned, as the processing of the application will not be done at that time. As we don’t yet have details, it is not clear whether there will be any restrictions placed on those files, such as if and when the application can be submitted. We will simply have to wait for the release of more information to better understand this matter;
The application could be processed and rejected, for lack of qualification under the Skilled Worker Program.
We understand you will be interested in knowing more about this new legislation but ask that you not be overly concerned at this point. In the event any of these new changes should affect you directly, we will inform you of all the details and will proceed accordingly, taking whatever steps are necessary to see the successful conclusion of your immigration process.
Meanwhile, while we believe that the majority of our clients will be on a list of «occupations in high demand», we do have a few comments and/or suggestions for you to consider in the event your application should be affected by these changes:
For individuals less than 36 years of age, application under the Quebec Skilled Worker Program is an option to consider. If there is intention to reside and work in that province, Quebec exercises a great degree of autonomy over immigration, so the requirements can vary from those under the federal program. The applicant would be required to study French and achieve a certain proficiency level under this program and, again, have the intention of living in Quebec.
Another suggestion would be to begin a job search in Canada RIGHT NOW. If an applicant is in possession of an offer of employment, or is in Canada on a Work Permit and Temporary Resident Visa, this can be very advantageous to their immigration process. Many clients receive offers of employment and begin working in Canada, prior to the completion of their immigration processes, so perhaps you can begin exploring the openings in your field to see if this option might be suitable in your case.
Please note that we are in the process of associating ourselves with an HR company to assist our clients with their job searches. You can also do so on your own by visiting our website. There are also several other job search-engines such as http://www.jobscanada.com; http://www.workinfonet.ca; http://www.monster.ca; http://www.canadajobsearch.com; http://www.careerclick.com; http://www.canjobs.com.agosto 13, 2008 a las 6:50 pm #228529SOANDSO3Miembro
