  1. I understand that the CAP for the federal Skilled Worker has been reached and CIC will set a new cap on July 1, 2012.

    As I am preparing my application for the federal Skilled Worker, can I submit my application anytime before July 1, 2012 or do I have to wait for the release of the new CAP before submitting my application/

    Thanks and regards.
