    January 2022 - Citizenship Applications

    Honestly, I had no idea about this low number of targets for online app. Had I known before, I would have sent a paper-based app for my mom. It doesn't even make sense when you look at the tracker as most applications seem to be online type.

    Mom's application returned

    When an application is returned, by default, it can be assumed that mistakes have been made from the applicant. And so did I although this is my first returned application. I sat back, went thru the whole application package, residence calculation and all her records and I've come to realize...

    Mom's application returned

    I called again on Friday and surprisingly an agent picked up the phone just after 2 rings. After getting my info, she went back to talk to her supervisor and told me that the non-PR days should have been counted. And if I choose to re-apply, I should include her boarding passes and an...

    Mom's application returned

    Thanks for the answers guys. This is really a BS that your non-PR days don't count even when it says it will as a visitor. We're from Bangladesh which is not a visa-exempt country and each time my mom entered-exited Canada, there was a stamp on her passport. And I know that doesn't mean the...

    First time home buying advice

    When I bought my house way back in 2013, my home inspector told me that I would require a new roof in 5-7 years. Finally, i did mine this summer and cost me $7500, ouch!

    Mom's application returned

    I applied for my mother's citizenship on 23-Jul-19 and it was returned in the following month due to "an error in her physical presence calculation". This is basically the summary of the letter they provided along with the full application: "On your application and physical presence calculation...

    IMM5713 Uploading

    My in-laws got Visit Visa twice before and they never had to show a confirmed ticket. So, I'm not showing one, rather may show a sample itinerary (printout from airlines website before payment). BTW, they will come for 3 weeks in real, so they will have confirmed return ticket with them. Did...

    IMM5713 Uploading

    Yeah, it has been some time. How have you been? No worries about the PM. - Reading this thread confused me. So, none of the forms need to be signed (not even the representative related ones)? I actually went ahead and re-uploaded all of them in scanned format. :) - I got a similar question...

    IMM5713 Uploading

    Hello Bryanna, I PM'd you re: this. In case you see this first, is it true that IMM5645, IMM5713, IMM5476 forms need to be signed+scanned by applicants (& rep) even when applying online. If that's a fact, should the main application IMM5257 need to be done in same way? FYI, I'm applying online...

    Citizenship for Sponsored Parent

    Good point, but she is below 65. Never thought she would be eligible for any kind of benefits yet. CCTB/UCCB, Provincial tax program don't apply to her.

    Citizenship for Sponsored Parent

    I sponsored my mom and she got PR on 15-Oct-2016. As she stayed here as a visitor (Supervisa) prior to becoming a PR, she has just become eligible to apply for citizenship. Now since she did not have any sort of income nor had any benefits from Canada, I never filed her taxes. However, she has...
