We recently received correspondences from 3 Provincial Case Processing Pilot offices of Citizenship and Immigration Canada for 92 clients with pending FSW application filed before February 27, 2008. This is part of CIC's Federal Skilled Workers (FSW) Program Backlog Reduction Pilot program.

The three provinces are Alberta, Ontario and Manitoba. If you declared any of the said provinces as your destination in Canada and your occupation is included in the province's in-demand occupation, you will receive a letter of invitation to submit an application for Provincial Nominee Program.
