FYI, most of them are married and might have siblings in Canada who went for study
Lol, actually my friend called me yesterday saying he is looking into Canada to settle down as life in USA for h1b is very uncertain. He has brother who recently got PR in Canada. So yeah he can get that additional points for siblings.

The problem is there are cases rising in key countries, which is probably why they are not inviting FSWs.

I don't think they want to invite candidates and then have to bar specific countries.
Eventually, they will have to bar some countries. The EU are already considering travel bar for US travelers while they monitor situations

I have a feeling that they might conduct 10 PNP + CEC draws altogether (today's one is the 8th) and start the all programs draw. So I hope we can see the all programs draw restarting again at least by 5th of August 2020. Just my gut feeling :)

On top of all this, the Canadian Immigration Minister has sent a virtual invitation to all the H1Bs to come over to Canada. The pool is already overcrowded.
Now all those H1Bs that have made a great fortune in the US will join the pool and set foot on Canada as well.
Boy oh boy. Gone are the golden days of immigration.
Still it is their country, their wish.
IRCC can at least reveal their intention. We can better do something else and not to waste the golden times of our lives.
IRCC won't even do that. Such a trap we are into. |
I will better tweet IRCC once again to disclose their plans, so that, we can adjust the direction accordingly. This is seriously wastage of time.
Learning French now or improving other skills will again take away 6 or 9 months more of our time while CEC exclusive draws happen.
Same here , and I have tweeted IRCC many times , it just come up with one answer - this is just to benefit cec. But , what about those who are losing age points , and obviously , all have worked hard to get clb9 , and inviting people below 450 is unfair for those over 460 . How would IRCC benefit those who have lost points in this suspense , and whenever the draws start happening , the immigration minister would want the scores to remain above 470 , the same he has been doing since he got elected in December .we r wasting time , no other country is doing like this , every nation has provided clarity .

Man oh man, PNP draw just happened which means CEC draw will follow next. No FSW draws have happened since March.
5 months of straight CEC/PNP draws and still counting..
Watch how the cutoff score will shoot up.. there are currently 4015 candidates just in 471-480 range... I predict the very first General draw will have a cutoff of 480+ unfortunately..
This is so frustrating..

I'm thinking maybe when they lift travel restrictions, they will state which countries will not be allowed, and then they will restart all program draws, but this list of countries will be excluded.

Lolz. Border closure do not have anything to do with why FSW are not being invited. Many people are still landing in Canada by air despite the so called restrictions. Chartered flights are also available for travel outside and inside Canada
Recently Trudeau said that they are in rush to reopen borders inspite of pressure.

Most are citizens and PRs, and a few approved PRs and those with work/study permits.

It's not open to foreigners who don't have a status in Canada.

Well, it doesn’t seem like Trudeau has interest in that. He truly wants to put Canada in the world map so barring countries at this time seem to contradict his plight so they might just have to figure out want they want to do but we should get informations regarding our future immigration plans too . At least we are applicants. A mail to our respective profiles might do if they don’t want some public broadcast
