Just got this from a sister thread..........hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
We have no way of knowing if the processing has halted.
But I sometimes wonder why there is such a great flow of applicants willing to immigrate to Canada?
Not to be judgmental , I am one of those willing to go to Canada, but I think if TOO MANY GO IN ONE DIRECTION end result will be everyone getting nothing in the end. We will be competing with each other for lesser paying jobs while more and more natives will be getting upset by us arriving in numbers far greater than they are willing to throw a welcome mat.
One of the signs that we are not too welcome is this extenuating wait and slow down in processing we all observe.
Sometimes I think the proper way to go is to find a place where fewer numbers migrate.
Singapore, for instance, has one of the best business climates in the world, and there are some other countries I would go to if not their higher crime rates and less individual protections ( I have a family and kids).
But I certainly eye other destinations.
With so much backlog and Canada getting really weary and trying to find ways to reject pre-2008 apps it's only a matter of time when they start to reject post 2010 as well.
I wish everyone GOOD LUCK and fulfillment of all your wishes but I think way too many of us want to get there than there are places available and willing to accommodate us, hence we all shall deal with this wait as something we earned.
Whether they halted till June 26 or it's just a rumor is irrelevant. Fact is we far exceed in numbers what they are willing to welcome.
