It is a dirty tactic to reduce the number of intakes while still showing that they increase the quota from 5000 to 10000.DG2017 said:It is hard to believe CIC is that much incompetent. I am sure they know and understand all these problems with current lottery system and it was all accounted for. CIC obviously did not plan to fully evaluate 10000 applications in 2017 as it would require lots of time and resources. It would take just minutes to reject most applications based on income and free up resources to clear the backlog or for other programs. However, increasing the cap from 5000 to 10000 looks so good on paper for public, but in reality...you know. I am looking forward to seeing the report with numbers of successful 2017 PGP applications and comparing it with previous years.
