Hi there, i am currently in the process of applying for my 2nd International experience canada visa. When i did my first one a few years ago i remember being invited to apply quite quickly (a week i think). But this time i've been sitting in the pool for about 5 weeks. Does anyone know whats going on or what the current wait time is?

Thank you!
Sean

As of this year, CIC has changed to a "round of invitations" approach:

They don't announce when the rounds of invitations will take place in advance. So unfortunate impossible to guess how long you may be waiting.

EDIT: See the text at the top of the page. Looks like the next round is going out next week.
