The reason you see the differentiation is as a result of the legislative changes that were implemented in Budget 2008--Bill C-50, as we refer to it.
As I said in my opening remarks, essentially that legislation provided the department with the tools to actually manage intake for the first time in a substantive way for this category. The ministerial instruction authority is quite broad. It can apply to almost all categories, with the exception of refugees either in Canada or overseas, or requests for agency in Canada.
Effectively what that allowed us to do was to give the minister the authority to prioritize certain applications covered by an instruction.
For the first set of instructions that came into effect in November of 2008 retroactive to February, certain applications were prioritized and put into process and others were returned. With regard to those from before February, we will process them as we move through the current intake, under ministerial instruction.
