Important:

Several of Canada's largest foreign missions are among those effected by the strike including London, Tokyo, Paris and Hong Kong. Immigration officers in some of Canada's largest processing centres in China and India also walked out.

looks like there vl be an indefinite delay due to the strike, for all the categories!!!! bad time!!! 

Seniors- please give your suggestions here, has this happened earlier, what is the expected time delay?? 

Will the new applications sent after May 4th will even be processed? or the old backlogs cleared first?

Kindly  throw your views

Strike still in progress,  no positive signs of an end to this strike.  Done Medicals & passports  submmited to NDVO 10 months back , our medicals expires on september 8'th 2013. yet no DM or an e case status update except an in process case status since 1 year . Felt like I spoiled my life thinking of this Canadian  Immigration.Erasing Canadian  dreams from our heart too.

i feel so sorry for your situation, wish things get settled before meds expire. Doesn't look appropriate for them (VO) keeping our PPs for that long a period. They should try to return them as early as they can. A person like me working overseas and who has to travel frequently can't imagine such a scenario with his PPs held by VO for so long. There is definitely some hitch in their process, PPs should only be asked for once all is set, and they just need to stamp the visa. I hope you don't have a complicated travel history.

Dear Sir

This is legal strike that is done by CBA , and this strike can be called back by the union only. No court of law can order them to come back on work. Only Parliament in their regular session can instruct them to finish their strike. At present Canadian Parliament is on her Summer Vacations and will come back in September 2013.

DO not worry , I personally believe that keeping in view this strike , they will give you one time extension of medical for 3 to 6 months.

Stay blessed

Kind Regards

The London office resumed withdrawal of service today. They have not been on continual withdrawal and were working at full strength as of last week.
