Default Is this CEC bill c-50 or something new?

I have just received an email from emigrate magazine and this is the cover story, doesn't say anything about bill c-50 or Canadian experience class so just wondered if it was something new.

Anybody know?

A pilot project that will centralise the intake of applications from prospective immigrants applying under the federal skilled worker category will begin reviewing applications in early October.

With funding provided in the 2008 budget, which set aside CDN$109 million to help meet the growing demand for permanent and temporary immigration, a centralised intake office will be established at Citizenship and Immigration Canada's (CIC) Case Processing Centre in Sydney, Nova Scotia. Over 30 additional staff will eventually be hired and trained.

By centralising the intake of federal skilled worker applications, it is hoped that some of the workload in CIC's overseas visa offices will be alleviated - and visa applications will be processed more quickly. CIC will evaluate the effectiveness of this pilot after 18 months.

The department is also taking other measures to reduce wait times and address the immigration backlog. These measures include sending more staff to help out in areas around the world where wait times are the longest, redistributing work from busy to less busy visa offices, and reconfirming the interest of the applicants who have been waiting the longest.

An old (3 weeks old) story:

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/departm...008-09-05a.asp

Just a pilot program to evaluate/assess/experiment with centralized processing of applications in Canada. Nothing to be excited about, at least not yet. 18 months or so later it may become something..., or may not...

Ok thanks, I hadn't seen it so I had wondered if was something that may start to speed up processing.
