Notice is hereby given that the Regulatory Impact Analysis Statement (RIAS) to the Regulations Amending the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, Vol. 142, No. 10, Saturday, March 8, 2008, contained an error on page 599. The following paragraph should not have appeared in the RIAS and is being removed:

“Under the proposed Regulations, to become a permanent resident of Canada, a provincial nominee must present their permanent resident visa to an officer at an office of CIC in the province or territory that nominated them. This provision is designed to encourage the applicant to settle in the province that nominated them and would provide more certainty for that province.”
