I applied from the UK where I have been for some years.
My admission letter stated I cld register either for Fall or Winter so I do not need a deferment letter. I dont believe I need my passport needs to be restamped as I was not given a date to be in Canada, just expiration date of my VISA.
I intend to leave as soon as I can for the winter session.
@ Everyone Still Awaiting.
Just be hopefull, do all you best concerning you application, contact this forum hen in doubts and the CHC too
I PRAY ALL THOSE WAITING GET THEIR SOONEST!
Ahh good stuff .
The expiration date on the visa will be calculated based on the assumption that you are joining on Sep 11 - Since it is now deferred to Jan 12, would you not have to get the expiration date extended ?
I hope I made myself clear - just a thought but maybe you can change it later too - If I were you, I would check with CIC.
Good luck again .
