canada's immigration minister volpe is aiming to both improve dealing with the huge backlog, and to increase immigration per year to 300,000.

"We have to start thinking about the Immigration Department as a recruiting vehicle for Canada's demographic and labour market needs . . . we are the lungs of the country," said Mr. Volpe in an interview with The Globe and Mail. "We are producing more jobs than the labour market has workers for. . . . We're desperate for immigration."

we'll see what happens. he promised new measures for dealing with the backlog back in april, but i've yet to see any specifics as to how he plans to do it.

in any case, this is bound to be good news for skilled workers who'd like to come to canada. from what i understand, the trades are desperate for those, and temporary work permits are likely to get a big boost (and then immigration will be eased for people who have worked in canada as temporary workers for a period, allowing application from within the country).
