    Can a Manitoba PNP PR move and settle in another province

    The sponsor can apparently never sponsor anyone else under MPNP if one of the people he sponsored has left. However, it's highly unlikely that he is sponsoring his mother under MPNP. Sponsorship of parents is federal and has nothing to do with MPNP and hence would not be affected.

    Problem with child support, What's the best approach? I'm in a dilemma, Please help!!!!

    If you are willing to re-marry your wife and stay with her for the sake of your son and she would be happy to re-marry you too, it would also be an option that you all immigrate to Canada. However, if you do end up getting divorced in Canada in the future, it will be more expensive for you.

    Citizenship change and Canadian PR

    Yes, some people have managed to do this in the past. After all, you are still PR. Nobody will stop you from getting a job, getting health care etc. If you are ever asked why you entered as a tourist, you should however probably not say that you were trying to avoid getting reported. You...

    Citizenship change and Canadian PR

    1. You could apply for a PR travel document but you would have to state why you could not meet the RO. Reasons like having a good job or wanting to get citizenship in another country would not be considered under humane and compassionate grounds. 2. You could try entering from the US via the...

    You don't need a co-signer for a child because there is no income requirement. Therefore, you are the sponsor.

    Pr status

    This is a typical case of "did not know the rules" but that doesn't help you either. Many people have been in the same situation. For anybody else, if you are applying for PR and are about to get married, you have two options. 1) Getting married before you land: You notify the visa office to...

    PR Card Renewal Interview Letter

    1. They will likely put your sponsorship application on hold until they decide the fate of your PR status. There would be no point in bringing them here if you were about to lose your PR status. 2. Buying assets really does not buy you any favours with immigration but can show that you are...
