Update: Federal Skilled Worker Litigation
Although we cannot comment on the details of the legal arguments given this matter is active before the Federal Court, we will continue to update you on the progress of the matter.
On Friday January 25th, the Department of Justice responded by providing comments with respect to the statistics we presented relating to applicants’ country of national origin and residence as part of the section 15 Charter submissions. They also provided their response to the proposed certified questions to the Federal Court of Appeal. All materials are now with the Honourable Justice Rennie for a decision.
Given the sheer volume of materials and the number of applicants’ issues that have been raised it will take some time for a decision.
We will update you as soon as we hear anything from the Federal Court.
