Bill C-38 is now a law (June 29, 2012) | Jobs, Growth and Long-term Prosperity Act


Jobs, Growth and Long-term Prosperity Act (Bill C-38) is now a law.  The bill contains amendment to Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) to include Section 87.4 abolishing all Federal Skilled Worker applications filed before February 27, 2008  which has not received a positive selection decision before March 29, 2012.

But there is still hope.


The amendments contained in section 87.4 of the IRPA terminating FSW applications are subject to litigation. The result of that litigation could affect how the terminated FSW applications are handled in the future. Further information will be provided as the litigation progresses.
