In our HALCO news Spring 2011, we reported that the changes were to take effect on December 1, 2011, but the Canadian government recently announced that the new system will come into effect on June 29, 2012.
The final details of the changes are still not known. When the final details are announced, we will post more detailed information on our website. For other immigration law information, please visit our Immigration Law section.
