So as a consequence, Immigration Canada and Citizenship will be authorized in using an alternate method to assess an application. A Visa Officer under the substituted evaluation concept will make their respective evaluation to become economically established within Canada. It is this method that will enable the Visa Officer in accepting or refusing the candidate regardless of the points the candidate has received.
