The link that andrew shows says that in the past 5 years 220,000 people have gotten their PR's. So that means that is 44,000 people per year. For 2006 seems that they increased the number to 105,000-116,000. Below is a copy of the text

CIC has met the overall target for immigration for the past five years as established in the Annual Immigration Plan tabled in Parliament, with over 220,000 people obtaining permanent resident status annually since 2000. CIC has successfully delivered the targeted levels for permanent residents while simultaneously managing its processing capacity effectively in other demand-driven programs such as temporary residence (temporary foreign workers, foreign students, visitors) and citizenship.

Read again - in your own quote there is a magic word **annually** you missed from your interpretation.

And those average 220,000 annually in past 5 years was the total in all categories.

Currently it is 112,500 - 124,500 (for 2005) !!!!!!

What a hell are they talking about increasing of amount of skilled immigrants??? What they have done only is just make the number of parents and grandparents higher.

They only returned temporary to the level that was until 2003 for parents. It was lowered to 12,000 in 2004 and to 6,000 for 2005. Then during last spring pre-election scare they promised to "triple" quotas for parents for 2 years ("triple" from 6,000 really means returning to previous level).

Do these numbers (105,000 – 116,000) include visas for SW dependents or only pertains to principal SW applicants?

Thanks...

How do they define those quotas?
Assuming someone gets his/her AOR this year, will his application fall/process into the 2006 quotas?
Thank You

Based on my experience, it does not matter when you filed and what date your AOR states. What matters is what date the file is cosidered complete, i.e. medicals received, background checks complete and all docs validated. I think it is only after that they check and see how issuing a PPR now would affect their targets and quotas

While I am still waiting for my CAIPS notes, by using an MP's office I found out my file was complete and has been for the last 20 days. But they are not sending me the PPR since they have exhausted their quota's for 2005 for Federal SW applications.

Unhappy Re: **** Immigration Levels for 2006 ****

So in other word, there is some sort of a cut-off point once the target numbers met, isn't it?
Therefore, unlucky folks who don't make it to the cut off point will automatically be processed for the next quotas (in this case FY 2006),
do they?
