This doesn't mean, however, that those whose applications were received by CIO before November 15, 2013 necessarily made it to the cap. The said page is not a real-time tally.

As of Nov 15, 2013 update, the cap for the following occupations were already reached:

  • 0211   Engineering managers1112

  • Financial and investment analysts 

  • 2132   Mechanical engineers 

  • 2147   Computer engineers (except software engineers/designers) 

  • 2174   Computer programmers and interactive media developers 
If your occupation is already closed, there other options you may want to consider:

1. Find a Job Offer from Canada and apply for a Work permit
2. Provincial Nominee Program
3. Get ready for the new FSW program in 2014.

And as alternative, you may also want to consider to Live and Work in Australia.  Engineers, Accountants and ITs are needed in Australia.  Be an immigrant in Australia the EASY Way!
