MI-3 Cap for NOC 1122 has been reached! | CIO Update as of August 22, 2011



Just like under Ministerial Instruction 2 (MI-2), Professional Occupations in Business Services to Management (NOC 1122) is the first to reach the cap for Ministerial Instruction 3 (MI-3). The 500 cap for NOC 1122 has been reached already as of August 22, 2011. That means Centralized Intake Office will no longer accept applications under the said job classification unless there is an arranged employment.
