Default Mr. Miller & Other Expert, Clarification needed for "New Release" on CIC web site ....

Respected Mr. Miller & Other Experts, Clarification needed for "New
Release" on CIC web site
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/press/03/0354-pre.html

On reviewing 2nd, 3rd & 4th Para of this announcement, state: The
amendments will allow federal economic class applicants who filed
their application for permanent residence before January 1, 2002, to
be assessed against the selection criteria of the former regulations
or those of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations,
whichever are more favourable. In cases where the results are not
positive, the application will automatically be reassessed under the
selection criteria of the other regulations.

"Canada is committed to the continual improvement of our immigration
program," said the Minister. "These changes reflect the core
principles on which it is based: fairness, openness and flexibility."

The federal economic classes affected are skilled workers, investors,
entrepreneurs and self-employed people. The applications are divided
into four groups: withdrawn applications, refused applications,
pending or in-progress applications and applications referred back by
the court.

My questions in view of above Para: It's very clear that the reduction
point 67 against 75 been proposed for Skilled workers of economic
class only. Why the Business categories included here?

As per the current IRPA regulations 35 passing points been allotted to
all Business Categories so does it mean that all affected applications
of Business Class shall be assessed first against the selection
criteria of old regulation where passing points for Investor &
Entrepreneur specified as 25 and for Self-Employed as 85?

If yes, can any body provide detail grid of old assessment?

Can Mr. Miller, James Metcalfe, Jim Humphries or Betro share their
experience that how fast visa offices can clear their backlog after
this news release?

Regards,

Moses.

Reduction of pass mark from 75 to 67 points has absolutely nothing to do
with amendment of transitional rules.

The amendment provides option for pre-2002 applicants to be assessed first
under the old law and if they don't qualify then under new law. That is all.

Why Business class is also included? Because IRPA drastically changed
selection criteria (not only points grid) for Business class applicants,
thus they deserve the same chance for assessment under old law as Skilled
Workers class applicants.
