2013 Application Cap


Staff member
Between May 4, 2013, and April 30, 2014, maximum 5,000 complete FSW applications will be considered for processing. Within the 5,000 cap, no more than 300 applications per eligible occupation will be considered for processing within this same time frame.

This does not apply if you:
  • have a valid offer of arranged employment, or
  • are applying under the PhD stream (there is a cap of 1,000 applications in this stream, from May 4, 2013 to April 30, 2014).
Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
