Ministerial Instructions (MI2): Federal Skilled Workers, Canadian Experience Class, Immigrant Investor Program

As part of the second set of Ministerial Instructions (MI2) released on June 26, 2010, IRCC capped the number of new FSW applications to be processed at 20,000, not including applications with an arranged employment offer. The Department also responded to evolving labour market trends by issuing an updated FSW eligibility list of 29 occupations, each capped at no more than 1,000 applications. In addition, FSW and Canadian Experience Class principal applicants became subject to mandatory language testing. MI2 also included a temporary pause on new federal Immigrant Investor Program (IIP) applications.

Note that FSWP and IIP provisions in MI2 have been superseded by those in MI3
