Thanks for your reply ujbaby. Keep me posted when you hear from CIC. My best wishes to you.
Also, you applied for CEC after completion of one year work experience right?
yeah, i completed one year before applying.
my application was returned on monday. The reason for returning was that i didn't pay the appropriate processing fee.
i am applying for myself and my 2 dependant children under the age of 22 and i paid the total amount of $850( one adult(myself) and my 2 kids under 22yrs). The officer handling my file did his own calculation and mentioned that i have to pay $1250 instead of $850, he added $550 x 2 + $150 = $1250, therefore he returned my application. i don't know how he came up with that figure. From what i understood, he added my son as adult. I have mailed back the application since yesterday and paid another $1250 including the previous $850, so the officer will choose the right amount and proceed with my application to avoid further delay. I also included written explanation explaining everything and i hope they will understand and charge my credit card. The officer didn't mention anything regarding my agency employment. I hope and pray that i will be fine and will keep u posted
