Yes that's it - more Brits go to NZ. The figure I read for 2006 was 23'290 to Oz, 19'800 to the US, 17'078 to NZ and a mere 5'865 to Canada. So obviously if you look at these figures and then look at the waiting times it does appear quite paradoxical!

So general consensus is that the visa quote for Canada won't go up next year (2009) because it's already exceeded the ''1% of the population'' target...?

It hasn't exceeded 1% yet, probably see a 5% increase in SW visas.

But shifting quotas from federal SW to CE and PNP applicants as already started in 2008 plan will in reality substantially reduce number of visas available for federal SW applications processed abroad. For 2008 CIC's plan already shifted about 20,000 visas from federal SW to CE and PNP classes. 2009 will see more quotas shifting, especially from federal SW to CE class.

So it doesn't bode well for anyone hoping to 'wait it out' via the simplified PR route then... looks like we won't be the only people anchoring for a job offer!

If you compared numbers in both reports I mentioned earlier you'll see that "waiting it out" won't work, as it may take very long time due to more "shifting" of quotas towards CE and PNP in coming years. With already ~20,000 less visas available in 2008 for federal SW class cases processed outside Canada simplified applications will have even smaller chance to be looked at in any predictable future.

All numbers, policy and priorities changes clearly show that Canada is moving towards employment based immigration - don't be left out, get a job in Canada while you still can.

check out the ''moving back to the uk forum'':- http://britishexpats.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=61

- but remember, just cos more people may be moving back from one country doesn't mean it's not as good as one from which fewer people are moving back, as you have to look at how many are actually going to these countries in the first place. E.g. more people on that forum may have come back from Oz, not because it's not as good as Canada but because, quite simply, more people may have moved over there in the first place.

(before anyone argues with this and disputes the number of people moving to / from any country, please note that I'm hypothesising and am merely saying don't let the number of 'returnees' lead you into thinking bad things about the country from which they may be returning...).
