Okay, I have some good news for me.
Just called CIC. The agent was awesome today!
He said that I have been approved.
He also said that one paper says that my mom's file is trasnferred to the local VO and another paper says it is transfered to Ottawa
So he doesn't know (welcome to the CIC's mess).
I also asked him if my mom will have to do a medical exam again (she just did one for TRV)> he said "Not necessarily" and that they will have access to her medical file and it might save us some time. But no guarantee that she won't need it again. I guess it depends on the results.
Finally, he said that even though it is my mom's address in IMM008, all correspondence will be sent to me anyway (because i am a rep).
Finally, for my own mailing address, they had an address, which i moved out from 3 years ago (it changed twice after that
). I guess it is a glitch because i was getting letters from CIC to my current address.
This is great! Since at least one paper says Ottawa, maybe you have hope for your file to be transferred there? Good luck -keep us updated.
And very interesting about the medicals...I am wondering if anyone had that experience (where at least something from visitor visa medicals got 'reused')
