Rather than just posting pointless digs at each other, can we get this thread back on track for those whose lives will be affected by the rule changes? Keep the 'banter' to The Maple Leaf, ta muchly.

The last post by christmasoompa for the same reason Innit!

Plus oneing? It's a word, but not as we know it Scottie.
I knew what you meant

"Kenney has also announced that Canada plans to admit between 53,500 and 55,300 new Canadians in 2013 under the revamped federal skilled worker program, which will be geared more toward accepting young people."

Would interestingly hint that the "cap" may be higher than 10,000.

Although this presumably includes FSW2 and the trades worker subclass?

But this is visas, not applications. So guessing an average of maybe 3 applicants per application, we may be looking at <20,000 applications. I am assuming that FSW2 and the new trade worker class is counted in there as well.

So actually general FSW admissions could be as low as 10,000.

And if there's no "list" and they haven't introduced an EOI system by then, any guesses as to how many days it will take for any given cap to be reached?

Hi

How can a Employer, pick an applicant and wait for an year long....until he gets his visa......I don't think he would hold the position until the applicant processes his visa which can take at least 6 to 8 months.

Hi all,

I have just received my IELTS results, and I just wanted to check that I am understanding them correctly so I can estimate my score accurately for the points system. Below is how I scored.

Listening: 8.5, Reading: 8, Writing: 9, Speaking: 9 - Overall Score: 8.5

I believe an overall score of 8.5 means I have a 'High Proficiency' in English which would give me the maximum 24 points. Am I correct?

Also, has anyone heard any news about which organisations CIC will accept Credentials Assessments from? I have been looking around and can't seem to see any new info on it. Would anyone know when or where they are likely to announce this?

Thank you

I believe so.

That's because there isn't any. Nothing's changed since you last asked.

Just keep an eye on the CIC website, and the Gazette, and it'll be announced there. But it may well not be until January.

HTH.

Hi... well I am probably not the best person to ask as my native language is English so I was a bit lazy in preparing.

However, I would recommend the below book on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cambridge-IE...4784336&sr=8-1

Also you can take practice tests on the Canada Visa site:

http://www.canadavisa.com/ielts/free...ice-tests.html

These were the only 2 resources I used. Also if you have an iPad/iPhone there are a couple of IELTS apps you can download, however I never got round to using them.

Good luck!
