I just read that as of the 1st of January this year, they changed the requirements for this program from 24 months of experience within the last 36 months down to 12. I thought to myself "Hell yeah! I'll apply right away, I have 16!!". But then I saw on the CIC website that one of the other requirements is: "apply while working in Canada or within one year of leaving your job in Canada" ... and I had to leave Canada early December of 2011 (which happened because of a mistake by CIC that they admitted to but refused to correct). How ridiculous is that?! Had I been allowed to leave just six weeks later, I would be filling out forms right now!
