    If you have a lease from September, I would claim September as the start date of living together and apply a few days after the 1 year mark in September. You should obviously apply Outland, and you will need letters from friends and family stating they know about your common law relationship...

    Maybe try the IEC program if you qualify...that gives you 12 months to stay in Canada and then get visitor visa's after...but apply for PR soon...it takes a long time...and don't stay in the country without status...it won't look good on your PR application.

    September 2014 OUTLAND Applications

    Congrats! Glad its almost over. Did they request prepaid return envelope too? They are notoriously cheap in Warsaw...everything has to be prepaid in advance...ugh. I'm assisting family with TRV's and they want the same thing to give the approved Visa's.

    AUGUST 2014 OUTLAND Applicants

    Landed yesterday (flagpolled). Just in case anyone is trying to drive across at Buffalo, you actually are allowed to simply make a U-turn before the bridge to US to come back to immigration in Canada. The officer jokingly asked if I did that. I actually went to grab dinner in the US and came...

    After submitting the application for sponsorship, we only heard back that the sponsor was approved and the application was being transferred to Warsaw (all in the same letter). After that, the only indication was on ECAS that it showed application received and medicals received. It is...

    So my application took a total of 7 months (2 months for SA and 5 for PR). Seeing that SA is now taking longer, I would factor in the average of 8 total from mailing date to DM.

    What was in the package was a waste of my money! I paid $175 to get my original application back (NOT THAT I KNEW IT) and it included 2 pages of your COPR with 3 instruction pages which you give to the border officer. Had they just sent me the COPR, it would have cost maybe $30!! Nowhere did...

    AUGUST 2014 OUTLAND Applicants

    I don't think they will be mailing very much. More than likely you will get email notification first. Since you uploaded your new address, it is very likely there...but they give themselves a "cushion" of time to tell you that they will update it. Address changes I'm sure get higher priority...

    From what I have experienced, if you are from a visa exempt country, you are typically requested to send only a photocopy of all the pages in your passport. If you need a VISA, you are requested to send either an advance photocopy of your passport and then your physical passport...or they...

    AUGUST 2014 OUTLAND Applicants

    ECAS finally updated to Decision Made. They added one extra line to say that they began processing the application on March 18...same day as the date they made the decision! So they can actually process an application very quickly LOL ;D Just kidding...but it does make you question the...

    MAY 2014 OUTLAND Applicants

    Don't worry too much about the status...in my opinion it is meaningless and doesn't help. Mine finally just got updated to Decision Made. They also added one extra line saying that they began processing my application on March 18...the day they sent me the email that the decision was made. It...

    I'm happy to report that I received my email from the VO that my Visa is ready to be picked up by courier (at my own cost of course). All arranged and emailed shipping label to VO to have them send it to me UPS. :D ECAS still showing "application received" :'(

    Thanks very much...that was fast work!! Just got my email to arrange for a courier to pick up my visa documents!!! ;D COPR is good until August. Bit of a pain to arrange for the courier myself (since VO won't do it) and cost me $175!! But at least it is done. Now only one more waiting...

    Congrats!!! Do you think you can make a stop over in Warsaw and give them a hand processing the rest of ours before you catch your flight over? ;D
