Default New immigration reforms put applications on hold

Newly passed immigration reforms, which the federal government said were aimed at reducing a staggering backlog of applications by would-be immigrants, are creating a new logjam.

The backlog, which stood at 925,000 before the legislation was brought in, could grow by an additional 90,000 because officials have stopped processing new applications. READ THE REST HERE

Interesting reading. Based upon this article better leave the application until the minister brings out the rules. I also believe that it may be a better way for those who are needed in the country to get in quicker - - maybe ?!!

I guess it leaves Immigration Lawyers and Consultants in limbo at present. If you have paid a fee you may get a refund if you are rejected but maybe not by the agents depending on the contract.

As usual journalists don't really know what they are writing about.

Yes, simplified applications everywhere as well as all federal SW applications without arranged employment in Buffalo are on hold if received after Feb 26.

But cases received after Feb 26 with PNP or arranged employment continue to be processed - I received 2 medical requests for such cases this past week.

So, if one has arranged employment or goes through PNP then she or he shouldn't wait for anything.
