Mudanças no Processo Federal trazem más notícias para quem se aplicou antes de 27/Fevereiro/2008 e não teve decisão tomada até 29/Março/2012.
News Release – Government of Canada transforms economic immigration program
Ottawa, March 30, 2012 — To create a fast and flexible immigration system that creates jobs and promotes Canada’s long term prosperity, the Government of Canada will eliminate the backlog in the main federal economic immigration program.
“The Federal Skilled Worker Program backlog is a major roadblock to Canada’s ability to respond to rapidly changing labour market needs,” said Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney. “Having to process applications that are as many as eight years out of date reduces our ability to focus on new applicants with skills and talents that our economy needs today.”
As announced in Economic Action Plan 2012, Citizenship and Immigration Canada is planning to refund fees and return stale applications from nearly all those applicants who applied under the dated criteria in existence before February 27, 2008.
Under proposed legislation, CIC will close the files of FSW applicants who applied before February 27, 2008, and for whom an immigration officer has not made a decision based on selection criteria by March 29, 2012. This is expected to affect around 280,000 applicants, including their dependants. CIC will begin the process of returning the full amount of fees paid to the Department by these affected FSW applicants. For those who have passed the selection criteria stage – approximately 20,000 people – CIC will continue processing their applications until they are approved for entry into Canada or not.
Não me agora surpreende o passo tomado pelo governo Canadense após as medidas tomadas em 2008 pois tudo parece parte de um plano único pensado lá desde o começo. Fiquei triste em pensar que ainda tem gente no processo aguardando uma decisão e que terão os seus sonhos destruídos.
Alguém aí foi afetado pela decisão? Postem comentários.
Retornar o dinheiro do application não é nada comparado ao tempo e esforços investidos durante o tempo do processo. Isso infelizmente, o governo Canadense não retorna.
