Ministerial Instructions (MI3): Federal Skilled Workers, Immigrant Investor Program, Entrepreneurs

Effective July 1, 2011, the third set of Ministerial Instructions (MI3) further limited the intake of new FSW applications by lowering the global cap to 10,000, with sub-caps of 500 for each of the 29 priority occupations. It introduced an annual cap of 700 for new applications made under the federal Immigrant Investor Program, and also included a temporary moratorium on Entrepreneur applications while that program undergoes review.

Note that MI3 remains in effect despite the issuance of MI4
