Default Alberta AINP changes coming?

I got this in an email from Maple International

"Please be rest assured that this news is not April Fool's joke.

Today the Alberta immigration department announced that on April 15, 2009
the on-demand occupation list of Alberta will be changed. Any applications
postmarked before April 15, 2009 will be assessed based on the current list.
All applications postmarked on or after April 15, 2009 will be assessed
based on the revised list that will be posted on April 15, 2009.

The possible change

It is very possible that IT related occupations will be removed from the
on-demand list on April 15, 2009. The original intent of this Alberta
program was to recruit H-1B professionals from USA. The economy of Alberta
was booming in recent 5 years because of the discovery of huge oil reserve
in the northern part of the province. Alberta needs engineers such as
Chemical Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Civil Engineers, etc to work for
its oil industry and its oil based economy.

However, it ended up that the overwhelming majority of applicants of this
Alberta program are IT consultants, programmers and software engineers in
USA. Alberta does need some IT professionals but it for sure does not need a
lot of them."

Is this true? I dont find any info related to this on Maple International website or Alberta Immigration website.

Default Application received on 20th March

Hi,

I send my AINP Application package on 18th March (H1-B worker stream) and was received by the AINP on 20th March. However I have not received any confirmation or a file number yet since it takes 2 months. Any idea if my application will be considered according to the current policies or according to the new changes that are coming up on April 15th?

Please let me know.

Thanks.

Default postmarked before April 15th applications

Thank you ingegarcia, Just to clarify "postmarked before April 15th" means, even if the application is not yet accepted, but received by the AINP before April 15th. Could you please confirm if my understanding is correct.

Thanks

Yes that's my understanding too... if the application reaches the AINP office before April 15 then it will be considered under the current occupation list.....

It seems they removed April 15 update from the website. Also I do not see any changes in the Occupations under Pressure List.

It was mentioned last month in the AINP website that some changes would be there in the NOC list after April 15. Everybody whoever followed this thread saw the message earlier. On April 15 they removed the message from AINP website and apparantly there was no change in NOC list till now. OP gave us correct information when he/she created this thread. See my post in April 15 in this thread and I mentioned that nothing was changed in NOC list. Again going back to my original question did you follow this thread from start? I objected to this comment "I donno why people place messages with Half Knowledge". Apparantly you had the half knowlodge about this whole issue.

Default Suva u r right abt NOC list

Hi,
Even i reviewed the list of NOC on their site but I don't see any chages. But i could see one thing on that pdf list is the date still says February 5, 2009. So it;s not updated as per April 15,2009 if they revised the list.
So need to find out wether they revised the list of NOC or not..
any one knows???


Thanks in advanc,

Vishal.

I think both of you are correct.

Initially AINP website had a message that starting April15th there will be change in NOC codes..but they removed it last week..so I guess, they are not going to change NOC list for now.

there is a big forum on Canada immigration..if you guys want to follow..

No..I am not affiliated with site and I get no benefits by posting the link here..use the site at your discretion
