Having emigrated to Canada myself, I am always interested to hear what the Government has to say on this subject.
It was a very long process when I moved, the worst part being you never knew when you were going to hear.
I am all for Provincial Immigrant Nominee Programs, as each Province can decide what types of skills they need and the process seems to work a lot quicker.
