Residence Questionnaire

Discussion in 'Citizenship' started by hl007ca, Jul 31, 2012.

  1. I just finished citizenship exam today. They gave me a Residence Questionnaire to complete within 45 days. In section 7, it says list all trips outside of Canada (including all day trips and trips to US).....If I went to US in the morning and came back at night same day, didnt stay overnight, do I need to declare? Is there anyone knows how long to get a travel history from CBSA? Most of time they don't stamp when you come back Canada from US. It seems the only way to get travel history is asking CBSA? Anyone has similar experience to share or have better ideas on this? I was employed all the time while I was in Canada. I have all records of employment (ROE). Will that be sufficient as proof document for my residency? Thanks for sharing..
     
  2. Apply for CBSA immediately, it takes up to 60 days, so submit that later when you receive it, same with OHIP record,
    For the trips where you went in morning and return evening(no over night stay) don't need to mention those, that what
    they have in CIC manuals, Your T4's should be good enough, Please read my post for more details how to request these reports.

  4. For BC you have claim from your prov office i believe
     
  5. Does anyone know where I can download the residence questionnaire form online?
     
  6. Hi Mary,

    Did you get RQ through mail? On the letter came in with RQ, does it indicate specifically that you need record from CBSA?
     
  7. I got the letter of RQ on july 25th my due date is on Sat/8th/ Aug(45 days)
    I am still missing lots of documents do I wait until thursday the 8th or send it with missing information that I don't even know if I have?

    please reply ASAP...we are hitting the long weekend...it is scary
     
  8. Have you asked CBSA for your travel history? Lots peopled advised that you can send in whatever you have first and explain to CIC that will send in travel history once you receive it from CBSA.
     
  9. I received my RQ in mail, dated May 07 (ecase was also updated same day)
    you should meet the deadline, submit whatever you have with a note to CIC explaining
    what you will be submitting later on.
    CBSA now a days taking 60 days, OHIP taking 4 weeks
     
  10. Do I really need to submitted all my credit statement in last 4 years? That will be tons of paper. I only keep current year statement..........
    I have T4, employment records, car maintenance record, car insurance record....have sent request for CBSA report... aren't those enough?
     
  11. You have no choice, they ask for 4 years, that means 4 years, i had to submit lots of papers since i was using
    2 bank account and 3 major cards, so you can imagine, get back statements from your CC issuer company they
    keep the records.
     
  12. Many - if not most - big Banks these days have E-Statements online - which of course very accurately capture how often your cards was used , time gaps during travel- i.e. record of where a debit card or credit card was used - example if you said you were in x or y country etc.

    So, I would suggest periodically downloading those statements before they go offline and you have to pay to get them from the Bank, for example. Most websites allow for downloading them as standard PDF documents.
     
  13. I got the letter of RQ on july 25th my due date is on Sat/8th/ Aug(45 days)
    I am still missing lots of documents do I wait until thursday the 8th or send it with missing information that I don't even know if I have?

    please reply ASAP...we are hitting the long weekend.....
    can some1 give me a clear answer please? ::)
     
  14. You do not have to send all credit card statements. you just send the one you use most and send its statements but it should be for four years. for bank acounts, you can also send one account statements. I know one guy who sent a ton of documents and they refused it. that was in person delivery in mississauga cic office. the lighter the more comprehensive, the better and the faster
     
  15. Regarding the Day trips... i called CIC and spoke to an agent and specifically asked that in RQ form its mentioned
    "include day trips" , she was very clear "no need to include that, but choice is yours, no harm" i would suggest to call CIC and double check with
    them...better safe then sorry...
