MI-3 Is Now Closed | 10,000 Cap Has Been Reached

When I checked Citizenship and Immigration Canada's website this morning for update on the number of applications received for Ministerial Instruction 3 (MI-3), this is what saw:

MI-3 Is Now Closed | 10,000 Cap Has Been Reached

The cap fro MI-3 has been reached. Citizenship and Immigration Canada has received 10,000 complete Federal Skilled Worker applications for processing since July 1, 2011. This means, they will no longer accept new applications until June 30, 2012.

I'm not when was this posted. I believe it was posted just few hours ago since it wasn't like this yesterday night. I was looking for date references and noticed a discrepancy:

MI-3 Is Now Closed | 10,000 Cap Has Been Reached

This page was supposedly updated May 7, 2012 but information posted in that page pertains to report dated May 8, 2012. I don't know how to explain that.

If new Ministerial Instructions are not issued before July 1, 2012, the current cap of 10,000 new applications will re-set on that date.
