MINISTER ADJUSTS SKILLED WORKER PASSMARK AND PROPOSES CHANGES FOR ECONOMIC
CLASS IMMIGRATION APPLICANTS AFFECTED BY IRPA TRANSITIONAL RULES
OTTAWA, September 18, 2003 -- The Honourable Denis Coderre, Minister of
Citizenship and Immigration Canada, today announced an important decision
and recommendation pertaining to the Immigration and Refugee Protection
Act (IRPA). The Minister announced an adjustment to the pass mark for federal
skilled worker applicants. Also, today he proposed new measures for assessing

the former Act would then be assessed under the current IRPA.
"The government's clear intention has always been to treat applicants
fairly," explained the Minister. "That is why we introduced and
then extended transition measures. The court has suggested that more is
required of the government. I have listened to that message. That is why
I am proposing these changes today."
The Minister plans to consult his Cabinet colleagues on the proposed regulatory
amendments at the first available opportunity. The new pass mark takes
