Seems like is time for a long list of replies and sorry for the long post just had a lot of people to write to. And it also seems I have some more updating the chart to do. Yay! CONGRATULATIONS to all who got good news recently. So happy for you!
My ECAS just changed!!! Whoo hoo!
It now says Decision Made - about time!
It says that they have received my medical results and they have sent a letter to my address.
Getting Close now!
Woo CONGRATULATIONS rhysmdavies84. I actually think you got PR interview letter and AIP. Usually when it says they mailed a letter to you, that means you get the landing interview. I would call CIC today and find out what the decision was. Wooo so happy for you.
Hey again guys,
So, I just got my letter (dated Jan. 7) for my permanent residence interview. My interview is scheduled for Jan. 19.
Oh yay such wonderful news lpeacock. I bet you didn't expect you were going to land so soon. That is so wonderful. I am sorry I don't know any thing about the landing part but maybe you could make a thread about it if no one here knows. I just wanted to say how very happy I am for you. Please come back and let us know how it goes. CONGRATULATIONS!
AAAHHHHH!!!!!! I checked e-cas and........ a decision has been made!!!!*****
I'm soooooo excited!!!! At last my husband can start working!!
Woooo!!! Omg so much good news today. So happy for you. I told you I was hoping that you would hear from them soon and you did. Yay! Hope you are going out to celebrate because you all deserve to. Let us know when you get anything in the mail, when he gets a job, etc. I love hearing all that good news. Again CONGRATULATIONS and thanks for sharing with us.
For all the people that have the blues: I know that CIC can make you nervous, scared or anxious of what the future might bring (will you be approved or not and when will you get an answer). Whatever the answer might be, there's one thing they can't take away from you: a positive state of mind. If you face everything with enough hope, hapiness and optimism, things don't seem to be less bad. Never panic, always think that there must be another solution in case your previous attempt didn't work out the way you planned it.
Set yourself a challange: smile more! Give a friendly smile to that colleague at work, give a smile to that other person in the elevator, to someone you cross in the street or in a shop... You'll see it gets contagious and soon people you smile a lot too, will start too smile back and to other people as well and affecting those in their turn. Soon everyone around you will be smiling a lot more and everyone will feel happier.
Try it! It really works!
Thank you so much for your inspiring words. I am sure they enlightened everyones day. I will definitely do what you recommend.
I think it has to do with cold, short January days...soon it will be spring and everyone will head back outside again
. I have a random question, does anyone know if it is possible to with draw an application from inland and send one outland instead (without loosing any money that has already been sent to CIC). Processing time in the US is so much faster then here, I feel like if I send it to Buffalo I could land in the next six months (at least that is what the trend appears to be on this forum).
Ugh, it is so frustrating sometimes. Anyways...thanks for all the positive little notes yesterday, they did help a bit and as you all said we are in this together.
Yeah I agree that I think the winter is what is making people a little bit more down than usual so hopefully come spring everyone will cheer right up. And believe at about this time in the process like you I questioned withdrawing my application and applying through Buffalo but I remembered the reason I applied inland and stuck with it. I mean the truth is, there is no guarantee of you getting PR from there in 6 months because some are still waiting for almost a year. I would just keep up with the application because most importantly you are already on the right path to PR (just like everyone on this forum is) and that you get to stay with your spouse/partner. Just take it a little bit at a time. It does get easier once you get past the 3 month mark. Plus if you need uplifting, we are always here.
We got our little brown envelopes yesterday!!! Yay!
One says I'm approved as sponsor and the other says my husband passed stage 1
I know we knew it already from Tuesday, but its soo nice to be official
Happy Friday everyone!
Woowoo that is such an amazing thing to hear you say. I mean yeah you knew was official but nothing can replace the feeling of the official documents making it more "official". I know if I get them I will just keep starring at them hoping the page doesn't just start to change to a different answer lol. The hardest part is over for you dear and I am so happy that you can now move on to settling down. Must feel so wonderful. CONGRATULATIONS me and hubby are so proud of you two.
WTH is happening here?. everyone seems to be down of late i notice!..
. We are many december/january applicants who havent been landed i guess!, But if you think about it, we are within the time limit!. its just so hard to believe that my 1 year is almost up and still havent been landed!. the upside is.. at least i have a job and i have AIP!.
Also things financially for us have been so bad!. Most of our savings is almost used up!. we do have a house and 2 cars though!. but that wont feed us!.. we have definitely tightened our belts on the spending area beause nothing is jyust moving!. .
I feel consoled because i am not alone. i feel consoled because i can come here and vent without feeling awkward. I will feel so much better once more of us are landed. I know i have AIP and it coud be worse but one doesnt help to think i am within the processing times which is 18 months and am barely gone through 1 year!. And i have 6 more months to go to be landed!!.. so going by that time its more in june/july!. eeek!. I pray and hope for all of us that we are ALL landed sooner than that!!. .
We are all in this people!. lets hang in there!. it will soon be over and "huggggsss"" to everyone!
You dear always help me put a different light on things. But as I said, you do have more than others and I am so glad you are beginning to feel better about things. Of course I am so happy about you getting a job. I am proud of you for staying strong and pushing on. I hope that everyone here does land soon. But the good part of it is, is knowing that you are going to get to land. Some people don't get to do that. And that is right. We are all in this together no matter what. We can keep each other strong. You go girl.
Hi folks,.. long time lurker, first time poster (in this thread!). I'm a Canadian citizen who has been working on obtaining PR for my American wife who has been working and living in Canada for the past 5 years. We submitted inland application around middle of August 2010. The waiting SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS!!!
Hey there a_p and welcome to the thread. So glad you decided to post. Hopefully we can make this wait easier. My husband is the Canadian and I am the American wife. What state is your wife from? I am from Virginia. And yes the waiting sucks but the reward at the end when we receive it will make us forget all about this one day. Do you know what day you send your app in August or when it started processing? If you have that I can add you to our chart. I am sorry that I can't help more with your questions but I certainly hope that you receive the answers you are looking for. Hope you feel at home here. We appreciate new members coming in to talk. Again WELCOME and GOOD LUCK!
