July 11, 2006 — Citizenship and Immigration Canada has introduced a new simplified application process for federal skilled workers and business immigrants.
Beginning September 1, 2006, most Federal Economic Class applicants are only required to provide the modified application form (IMM 0008SW or IMM 0008BU) and processing fees at the time of application. Supporting documents will need to be provided only when the visa office is ready to assess the application.
