    Conclusion

    As per the recent updates from the immigration minister Mr. Sean Fraser, Canada Immigration are thinking to start the FSWP, and CEC draws by spring. However, there is no official declaration that comes from the department. It is just planning, which may take time to execute. Until, and unless, the Provincial Nominee Programs are the only hope for the candidates, who are looking to migrate to Canada on Permanent Residency.
