    Korean Police Certificate -- ILLEGAL document

    Hi everyone, Today I got my landing letter - PR approved a week ago. I submitted the free Criminal Record Check that I got from my local Korean Consulate (in Vancouver). I also submitted emails from the Korean Police Agency, the Korean Foreign Office, the Korean consulate in Toronto - all...

    Discrimination against non-PRs / citizens

    I think you perhaps misunderstand my question a little. It is, of course, essential and required to have a SIN and a work permit. That is not in question. In the example I gave earlier, I offered a valid work permit and SIN number. My issue is, can employers lawfully discriminate between...

    Discrimination against non-PRs / citizens

    I understand that some government jobs do legally discriminate on this basis, but is there a law or rule to be applied? I read the Ontario test case in which a man on a graduate visa applied for a permanent job which seems to have set a precedent. As I understand it, it is illegal to ask for a...

    Korean Police Certificate

    Sorry, my last post was deleted as I suggested you try a face book forum to help answer your question. I don't know any more about appealing to the IRCC than you I'm afraid, and I'm inland so my recourse would be different to yours.

    Discrimination against non-PRs / citizens

    I am now seven months into my PR application, all is going smoothly, and I have an OWP valid to March 2021. I applied for a job a while back and received the terse reply "Sorry, this job is open to Permanent Residents and Citizens only." Is this legal? I have applied for another job with the...

    Korean Police Certificate

    I ask as you must be able to appeal it somehow. If you are in Canada, your first stop should be your MP who will be able to ask questions directly. If you are not in Canada, then you have a right of appeal anyway I think. Whatever my results, I will be posting the results widely so others don't...

    Korean Police Certificate

    That's insane. Did you show them all your attempts to get the right document? I've just submitted my two other police checks along with about 8 pages evidencing all the places I've tried to get the lapsed record one; the Korean Police Agency, the Consulates, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I...

    For some it’s shorter, but it’s all a big waiting game, yes.

    ****JANUARY 2019***** INLAND SPOUSAL SPONSORSHIP

    I asked that question on the FB forum recently. It differs for everyone of course, but six weeks seems usual.

    Korean Police Certificate -- ILLEGAL document

    Perhaps I will do that too, but... I have gathered evidence of my attempts to get this document. All state it is not obtainable and some state it is in fact illegal. These are my sources and correspondents: CSI Screening agency csi@csiscreening.com Korean consulate in Toronto...

    Korean Police Certificate

    Did they speak English? If they didn't give you any kind of written response then I guess you just said you called them? It seems to me that you have set a precedent which was accepted by IRCC, so they need to be consistent. I will try calling but if I can't get anyone to speak to I will just...

    Korean Police Certificate

    Then if you don't mind, I will just quote your response above and hope that will be enough. I will ask at the Consulate but I suspect they are not going to help any further - there is a note on their website saying they cannot answer any more questions about police checks - which makes me think...

    Korean Police Certificate

    Yes, I planned to do that - along with all the forum responses and complaints. Did you find somewhere that states there is a change in law? I only find references to it, second hand, on this forum or the facebook forum.
