    Sir, As of July 1, 2012, CIC has temporarily stopped accepting applications for the Federal Skilled Worker Program. Do you have an exact date of when they will start accepting applications again in early 2013 when proposed changes to FSWP selection criteria take effect? The reason is my husband and I qualify for the FSWP and would like to get the ball rolling in regard to the application, but as you know if we have certain checks done too soon they become obsolete.
