Living in Canada: Canadian Immigration Overview
As of July 1, 2012, the Canadian Citizenship and Immigration has stopped accepting application for Permanent Residence in the Foreign Skilled Worker and Investment Class categories. This freeze is supposed to be temporary and last until January 2013. It is meant to address the backlog of applications currently awaiting processing.
