Ministerial Instructions (MI5): Federal Skilled Workers, Immigrant Investor Program

Effective July 1, 2012, IRCC’s fifth set of Ministerial Instructions (MI5) introduced temporary pauses on accepting new applications to the Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) Program (with some exceptions) and federal Immigrant Investor Program (IIP). These pauses have no impact on FSWP and IIP admissions as they are set in the Annual Immigration Levels Plan and there are more than enough applications in our inventory to meet current and future admission targets for both these programs.

Note that MI5 supersedes MI3 measures related to FSW and IIP, but does not affect MI4.
