Why don't you Guys try for Australia ? Australia is the next Canda, everyone is shifting focus there. I suggest indians should immigrate there. Canada has the right to declare its own rules, and if they want to cancel 300,000 its their right, plus they are refunding the money. The problem is in the old system majority of applicants were v low class ppl with no skills (not everyone but majority) most of them dont even know english. why put ur life on hold , its better to move on and look somewhere else maybe its better for u. I strongly suggest people to checkout Australia for immigration, it is the future.

Why are you guys wasting your precious life on dreaming Canada? Immigration is driven by economic necessities and you just need to figure out how you can fit into Canadian economy. Get required qualification and reapply. There are many places in the world where people are living in far more horrible conditions/hellish conditions. There are places where people are facing civil wars, epidemics, tyrants or just some thugs ruling over them. Why then Indians think that they should be given first chance to immigrate when there are so many more deserving people out there.
As on today CIC is flooded with Indian applicants not only from India but Australia, UK and USA. So proportionately more Indians get entry into Canada under our current immigration system than any other nationality which means technically our system is biased in favor of Indians and we should figure out way to deal with this disparity. Mr. “I am Old. Old is not Gold” ask yourself is your claim to Immigrating Canada any better than the claim of a Rwandan family living in a refugee camp? Or is your suffering more than the suffering of people of Burma who are fleeing political oppression from military Junta? India for all its fault is growing economically. If you are looking for money than Asia (your India included) is the best place to be now. West, despite all technological advantage, is decaying and dying. We want Canada to be a nation of many countries not just one country eating up large portion of immigration quota.
We have worked hard to make Canada what it is today, why don’t you make your country better and teach your children to persevere.

He has not tlak about money he talks about fairness and justice much better than his country and yes we Canadians greet all citizens of the world. Applicants wait for 90 months and more which is very high compare to any other countries.
Think and write these people have invest their saving in application for 7 years and no anwer and just waited so long. You honk your car horn if someone just delayed you on green light for few seconds, they have long waited for 7 years.
I see what you are going through I will pray that all applicants will get there answers. You have wait so long but rest assure Canada is very beautiful country and Canadians greet all citizens of the world with smile that makes our country stands out, you along with for family will witness one day.
Subject: I am Old. Old is not Gold.
I was 33 when I applied for Canadian Immigration under the Skilled Worker class.
My application is still under process after 7 years.
I am 40 Now.
I have to wait till my application is processed.
If it takes another 5 years, I will be 45.
I am not getting any younger.
My productive years are finishing.
When my application is finally processed, I will be a burden on the Canadian System.
I will draw a pention, without having contributed into the Canadian system.
I will be old and therefore also be a burden on the Canadian health system.
Even my children who will have no Canadian education / qualification will remain jobless for a long period and will draw benefits form the Canadian Public Funds.
Eventually my children will land up doing un-skilled jobs, for which immigrants are not required. Those jobs could have supported some of Canada's own un-skilled work force.
If I would have migrated in my early 30s when I had applied, I would have updated my qualification by doing some Canadian courses and my children would have got Canadian degrees and both the generations would have contributed to the taxes and the society.
