From the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website:

“Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is proposing changes to the Federal Skilled Worker program to help Canada select immigrants who have the best chance of integrating and making a better contribution to the Canadian economy.

CIC is consulting with stakeholders and the public on the proposed changes. The input received through the consultation process will be taken into account in the development of new regulations. A summary of the results of this process will be published on our website in spring/summer 2011.  Only totals from each question will be reported (names, identifying information or organization details will not be included in the report).”

TO participate in the online questionnaire go to the CIC website.

A few years ago we were looking for a lawyer for my parents to prepare their applications for Citizenship and Immigration Canada to let them stay in Canada on humanitarian basis. It was not easy – most of the lawyers have been very skeptical about the chances of our humanitarian application. Elizabeth Wozniak was the only lawyer we have found, who had the experience we were looking for and she was ready to help us.

Their work is always of the highest quality and they understand the operational requirements of our business; but what sets them apart from others is their responsiveness to our needs and the personal commitment that they make to getting the job done for their clients.

Elizabeth Wozniak and her team met with us and found a solution to our case in a quick and efficient manner. They kept us up to date with the process and before we knew it I had my new work permit. I am so glad I brought my case to Elizabeth and her team. I would recommend her services, particularly to anyone that feels their case is complex.

When most people think of Canadian immigration, they are thinking about permanent residence in Canada. Applications for permanent residence fall into the following categories: The Family Class (spouses, dependent children and parent/grandparent sponsorship), the Economic Classes (Express Entry and Provincial Nominee Programs) and Refugee and Humanitarian programs. Programs open and close regularly so it is important to get the right information at the right time. There are also some obscure categories which are not well known but which can be very useful in the right circumstances. These would include the “Lonely Canadian”  (within the family class) and the Federal Self-Employed program (for artists, athletes and farmers). Read more »
