Today ends a very busy month for CIC which saw four draws take place over the first 3 weeks of the month, and just over 5,500 ITAs issued! In case you missed the news on the last two draws, you can read this here and here.
Also in the news this month, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) announced on November 22, 2017, that it had reached its provincial allocation quota of 6,000 nominations for the year 2017. This was a bummer for me, as I have a few people close to me who were hoping to get an Ontario nomination this year.
Ah well, I guess 2018 is around the corner – only 31 days to go!
I was expecting a draw this week, but alas! There was none. I wonder what IRCC/CIC has up its sleeves. I am still hopeful that the next draw’s cutoff score will be around 420. Anyone praying with me on this point? Any 2018 OINP hopefuls in the house?
Is it really already the year’s end? Saying it out loud (or shall I say, “typing it”) seems so strange. I still remember entering the year 2017 full of hope, dreams and expectations. To be very honest, I have a lot to be thankful to God for this year, even as I anticipate the manifestation of His promise to crown my year (2017) with goodness.
I am thankful for good health for my family and me, our smooth transition to Canada thus far and more time I get to spend with my family these days.
And You? What are you thankful for? Sound off below.
Yours in the Snow (it has been snowing here for the past 2 weeks),
