On March 14, 2008, legislative amendments were introduced by the Government of Canada which will change the way in which applications for Canadian immigration or permanent residence in the skilled worker category will be processed. The amendments have yet to be approved; however, the changes will give the Canadian government the ability to fast track some Canadian immigration applications at the government’s discretion. The changes were introduced in an attempt to streamline the system and eliminate the backlog. The changes once passed, will apply to all applications for immigration to Canada received on or after February 27, 2008.
