I am convinced beyond doubt that the govt plans to do away with all program draws. The budget statement is very clear IMO.

A while ago it was speculated that separate program draws might continue, perhaps being held once a week (with less ITA's sent per round) and rotating each program. One week for FSW, one for CEC, one for FST and one for PNP.

I think it'd make more sense, someone might be an excellent welder but because of having a basic level of education and intermediate English might never get an ITA... While there's a shortage of welders in X.

FSW isn’t going anywhere. The pandemic has highlighted that Canada needs also to focus on lower wage immigration in some lower skilled professions as well. We still need the highly skilled young immigrants as well. The program is in place because most of the applicants are already living in and working in Canada which is much easier to process versus immigrants that would have to move and find a new job in Canada. The pandemic makes it much more risky for applicants outside Canada because they will have to find jobs and housing on arrival which is much more complicated and difficult due to covid.
Thanks for the optimism. I was getting depressed reading this thread. Consider how much energy and time I spent on learning French and increasing my scores.

EE seems to be heading that way now. But it will very tough to manage for IRCC.

I am not sure actually. Would you suggest that I call them?
i would suggest you to reduce your claimed points in years of experience if you are way above
Yeah at some point I'll need to sit for IELTS again and precisely drop from level 10 to around 8 LOL. It doesn't make sense at all.
why cant you reduce your number of years of experience?
