That's right. Was there any confusion or ambiguity in my reply?

You might get lucky as your application was in process. Time will tell.

I hope so i really do. This latest attempt is not actually in the process yet though. We had to wait the time for the job to be advertised so the actually LMO forms dont get sent until next week.

To put in a genuine stop in the tracks for workers like that is off putting. I am just surprised but looking out I guess who cares

I'm wondering as well whether they will be harsher and more ready to decline an LMO application that's already in?

I guess it depends on what specific instructions have been sent to HRSDC by CIC on how to deal with applications in process before yesterdays announcements. Nothing on the CIC site as yet or HRSDC site just the press releases.

I think this will be reality in the near future, they (CIC) will have to make it look like they are in line with the new ruling, leading by example

Interesting sats on LMOs issued in 2012 for all of Canada.
http://www.hrsdc.gc.ca/eng/jobs/fore...erly2012.shtml

Alberta approx 84,000 positive LMOs WOW.

newsflash. Canadians are no more or less whipped up by immigration fraud that brits are. I don't know why that would be a surprise?

How would you know? It's not good at any rate. RBC and their recruitment company have shaken it all up and made life that much more difficult for new foreign workers
