Can I ask you all for some advice. I am in the process of applying, my spouse is Canadian and I live in the UK.
I have my medical on Thursday, now do they give me the information I need to send to my spouse immediately or do I have to wait,
If so how long?
Also once the forms get sent to London from Ontario how do they contact you, is it by post or e-mail?
and do they contact me or my spouse in Canada?
Thanks for your help!
At the medical they give you the form back right away. Its green if i remember correctly and you need to include this with the initial application. So forward it to your husband as soon as you can. I assume he has all the other forms filled out and ready to go, and you have both signed the sponsorship undertaking (or whatever its called!) form.
All the forms are then submitted to mississauga where your husband will be assessed as a sponsor. After about a month, if he is approved as a sponsor (and most people are) they will forward the application to CHC London.
Both offices, Mississauga and London use both means to communicate. I got a letter from CHC Miss, and and email from CHC London.
CHC M will contact your husband as he is the sponsor, CHC London will contact you at your UK address.
Anything else I can help with then let me know.
I have created a spreadsheet of people going through the London office to show timelines. Click the link to have a look. Average number of days from filing the application to receiving PPR is about 106 days, not too bad!
