It counts what was the mark when you applied.
If number of points changes after your application it will not affect your application but rather applications after that.

hmmm...but when I applied there was 75 points passmark and then it was decreased to 67 (also for me)...what about if they decide to raise it again?

thanks

If you read the information provided on CIC website it clearly states that applicants have to qualify under the point system not only at the time of application but also at the time the visa is issued.

Therefore if points are changed in the future all the applications still pending (i.e. visa has not been issued) will be effected.

If point changes before the issuance of the visa then applicant HAS TO meet the new requirements.

Passing Mark (in reply to: Passmark change?)
Please know that I have consulted with my atty Colin Sinmger on this matter.

There are a couple of items of interest:

l) usually the CIC, if there is a pass mark change, will go with the mark that favors the applicant. he cannot recall when an applicant was hurt by raising the mark individually after the IA was completed. He simply said, if you have an IA with interview waived, good medicals, then just worry about background and security clearances.

2) There are no pending actions at CIC at this time (and he would know), but there is a merging desire to pass legislation to reduce applications. The legislation will be considered this June. With 669,000 apps backlogged, there is a move to make entrance difficult and the criteria very stringent until the backlog is completed. At present, attys have gone through several possibilities, and all hurt new applicants. For old applicants, there should be no changes that would affect those having received IAs.

I hope this helps. If you are concerned, consult your atty.

I hope this helps.

thanks people...

What Ron says is what basically I already heard around...not official common good sense! If you have a positive selection, a passmark change shouldn´t affect your case...

On the other hand I also know about meeting the passmark at the time of the visa issuance. Does it mean at the time of the passport stamping or landing? please clarify!

I think this is a scary & interesting thread...more contributions are appreciated!

Legislative changes (in reply to: Passmark change?)
I´m not a lawyer, so I might be wrong.

The basic precept of law is that it cannot be backdated, otherwise, it can be challedged on constitutional grounds.I´m referring to Canadian laws. The law is usually in effect on a post-dated basis or on the day it is signed by the Governor-General or his representative. If this is the case, then I think that Immigration Authority should consider the law that was in effect at the time of the receipt of the application.
