Ministerial Instructions 15 (MI15): Instructions for Managing Certain Permanent Resident Applications in the Economic Class

Effective January 1, 2015, the fifteenth set of Ministerial Instructions (MI15) will repeal all processing eligibility criteria (including the application caps and eligible occupation lists) for new applications in the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and the Canadian Experience Class. This repeal will not affect the actual processing of applications received prior to January 1, 2015, and considered under MI12. From January 1 onwards application intake will be governed by the criteria for the new Express Entry application management system.

MI15 will renew the pauses on the receipt of new applications for the Federal Immigrant Investor Class and the Federal Entrepreneur Class. These pauses will remain in effect until further notice.
