BC doesn't have half the jobs ON has.
BC has one third population if Ontario, naturally it will have about a third of the jobs of Ontario. Not to mention, if you are in ICT, very likely you can get a remote work.

Also BC has about 150 rainy days in a year so fuck that warm weather.
-50 degrees or drizzles and Sunshine intermittently? Is it even a choice?

Proximity to DC or Cali means shit if you're a PR lol you can only be a tourist.
It means a lot. Many of my friends got job in US and moved to B.C.. Every month (before pandemic) or so they used to take a day trip to Seattle, meet their bosses and shop in USA and then come back. In 2 years (1 year as WP), they got citizenship and now they can shuttle as they want. try doing this in Ontario. LOL!

(maybe AB but probably outside Canada).
Given that you want to live and work in USA, you could have very well applied for EB2 NIW in the first place. You would have got GC by now. Not being born in India or China makes it a cake walk with proper qualifications.
Heck you can apply to both places and then pick and choose where to live.

Don't give me hope...

Yeah and my statement was Canada = Ontario in terms of jobs, salaries, careers because most jobs are there (naturally). I think housing is about the same between ON and BC, BC was a bit higher than ON when I lived in BC. But your chances of finding higher salaries are higher in ON. Btw what's even funnier is BC = Vancouver lol

Oh and Vancouver = shit hole

Well, you could do that in Windsor/Sarnia. Of course it doesn't have the same market as vancouver/toronto.

Have you checked myimmitracker recently? MEP/BIL alone takes 5 months now. The leaked IRCC document shows that this year's avg proc time is 15 months for PNP and 21 months for FSW. Kubeir and the others don't know jack; they've been selling dreams to people who are both too desperate to hear good news and too clueless to even look at myimmitracker.
Yes but those processing times are based on past information. They won't remain like that in the future and that's what IRCC is currently working on. For example, as you mentioned, the BIL did indeed take 5 or even 6+ months. Its now down to 4 months based on myimmitracker which is progress.

Guys, can anyone help me:
I just received BIL and looking for information about biometrics appointment. Two questions:
1. No. of applicants - Should I only book for 1 applicant (spouse is added in the app, accompanying and got their own BIL) which would be suffice for us? Or should I book for 2 people?
2. Appointment category - Which one to choose - Application submission with biometrics OR Biometric enrolment?
Thanks!

It still pales in comparison to 2020 though, I remember my MEP reflected in just 2 weeks after my time at the doctors, and BIL in a matter of days after visiting the VAC.

“Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s new immigration minister plans to maintain, and even ramp up, Canada’s efforts to grow the nation’s labor force with foreign workers.

Sean Fraser, who was appointed to the post in October after Trudeau’s Liberals won re-election, said the government is on track to exceed its goal of offering permanent residency to 401,000 people this year. Speaking in an interview with Bloomberg, Fraser said he’s even prepared to increase immigrant targets -- currently set at 411,000 for next year -- if he deems additional newcomers are needed to fill labor shortages.”

I’m inclined to think they will raise the cap. Quebec already informed they will want to raise their quota for next year. They will probably claim what wasn’t used in 2020.

There's always a lagging effect when we're talking about a lengthy process such as with Canadian immigration. Initially, the MEP and BIL process went according to the regular schedule but eventually, the closing of the VAC's, lack of IRCC resources, priorities etc. caught up with them which has led to this backlog. Eventually, things will go back to normal and I think we will see significant upticks in processing speeds soon (we're already seeing it now with tons of people getting PPR's/remedicals) because at the end of the day, Canada needs immigrants.
