While a Canadian degree sure does help reducing the time to find a good job in Canada, mush has a point. Getting a Canadian degree costs you a lot of money and opportunity cost is big too. I have Canadian born friends with full Canadian credentials, and pretty good credentials actually, yet even they struggled in the job hunt.

Arguably the best approach is finding a survival job first, then going to a Canadian school while financing yourself and searching for a better job at the same time. The degree should be no longer than 2 years (master's usually) and in some cases MEng (1 year no thesis) works really good too. Most importantly, your lab/supervisor should have strong industry connections and must be willing to redirect you to those connections upon graduating. If you're patient and don't absolutely hate your survival job, you can extend the time you spend without going to school but applying for jobs. You might just land a job earlier than you decide to go to school.

One should remember when you're paying to a school, you're not paying for the degree but for the network.
You Engineer background people should get into data analytics. Not sure why more don't do it. Better money, more opportunities and you have the skillset

Just things to consider. We can sit here and debate hypotheticals all day long, but at the end of the day, my opinion is that a Canadian degree is simply not worth it, unless you're 18 and deciding to do your undergrad there. Yours may be different, and the person I responded to may or may not agree. Doesn't really matter.
Yeah, just trying to point out that it could be worth it depending on the context. Obviously if you've worked in big MNCs then you'll probably find something sooner than later

For me the real value of the degree is PGWP for 3 years, which helps you to be little bit more independent from IRCC’s will to open FSWs stream just a little bit

Why the hell would anyone want to hold more draws when they have enough applications to meet their targets for 3 years? You want more backlogs?
Because minister said that they want to continue the process. If they stop the draws they will damage the whole system and loose skilled immigrants

Hi all, I recently ordered GCMS notes recently and it reads as follows:

ASSESSMENTS
Eligibility: Passed
Security: Not Started
HIRV:
Criminality: In Progress
Org Crime:
Medical: Passed - Expired
Misrepresentation:
Info Sharing: Complete
Other Reqs:
Final:

And as I check into procedure records, the last update was Sep 2020. My AOR (FSW-O) was Jul 2020, is it common for Criminality to take such a long time?

My impression is that someone at CIC or its agents simply forgets to pick up my case :( Is there anything I can do other than just waiting and seeing everyone around me getting their remed requests?

Not really. This is terrible news. They'll just have a 15k CEC draw, because humanitarian Canada.
True, its not a good news. It can push Canadian government to do something in desperation and their acts of desperation are usually stupid and harmful for immigrants or would be immigrants.
