Canada FSWP has announced the new occupation list, am i eligible?

Not selected in H1 this yr,OPT gonna expire in Sep…Looking for other options, one of my friend suggest me to file for canadian visa, accourding to their new announcement IT ppl are elible to file FSWP…should I go for it? How long this process will take?

It is always good to have a back-up. If you are waiting for a receipt notice, you still have time.

What do you mean by not selected ? Did you miss the cap-date?
