"I don't blame anybody except AINP"
This would make perfect sense if Canada had absolute control over its economic condition.
I was expecting this program to be shut down Q1 of last year. Kudos to them that they tried to stretch it out as far as they could.
I seriously do not get the indignation on this forum. We all applied for nomination to help us get PR in their country. It's not like we had countries bid amongst themselves to have the honor of having us live in their country. There seems to be confusion on who is in demand and in control - AINP or the vaunted 'skilled' tech professionals? Speaking of spending time and money - did y'all just sit around doing nothing while waiting for AINP nomination? That would be wasting time. And if that's what you did - why would someone want such a workforce? There was absolutely no need to spend a single USD on this process until you get nomination. So, how did we manage to 'waste' time and money?
Opportunity and adversity are 2 sides of the same coin. Make of it what you may. Last Jan when Satyam fraud was uncovered, I know of many 'Satyamites' who quit going to work and were simply hanging out on forums and such. They kept getting paid you know. Kept brooding on how unfair it was for the talented and experienced techies, wishing they were working for TCS or Wipro instead. Then there were others who recognized the opportunity in this debacle and invested some of their hard earned money at that time which eventually yielded at least 600% in less than 2 quarters.
If you still think AINP is to blame - I suggest reading up on the 'circle of influence' and the 'circle of concern' in Steven Covey's 7 Habits.
just my 2 cents.
Agreed if AINP would have nominated all the applicants how many would have spent $550 per applicant to get their PR stamped ?
I would bet atleast 80% of all the applicants under sthis stream would have waited almost till the end of the specified time frame to file for the Federal PR stamping, this waiting is purely for not wasting money
while anticipating some sudden movement with reference to US Green Cards.
How many applicants drop out if AINP would charge a fee of $1000 or more for getting nomination (i think they should have done that)?
Even after getting PR how many would truly relocate to Canada ? Even if they land in Canada with PR how many would stay there and lead a life and settle down ?
Atleast now after all this AINP experience I wish that people act with more responsibility for the higher good. I personally think that what AINP has done is good in a way because those among us who do not like Canada
can plan their lives outside Canada.
I agree that what has happened with AINP is unfair to many of us but when one thinks with open mind one realises that AINP was not designed
to handle such huge number of applications their system was overwhelmed and we should be thankful in a way because atleast they responded telling us that our files have been closed.
What would any of us waiting for US green card do , if all of a sudden USCIS thinks that they do not want to issue Green Cards ? how many of us would fight ?
Please do not blame their system entirely, even we are to be blamed for abusing their system.
One should ask oneself whether he or she would truly relocate to Alberta ? that would answer everything.
