The Minister of Citizenship and Immigration announced on July 3, 2008 that consultations will take place with the provincial and territorial representatives commencing July 7, 2008 to determine the occupations most in demand in Canada. These consultations will assist the Minister in formulating a list of occupations which will take priority in processing from the Canadian immigration applications received on or after February 27, 2008. Input from concerned stakeholders will be received in August 2008. Once the consultations have concluded and the Minister’s list is finalized, the list will be published which will bring clarity to the new revisions tothe existing immigration law.
