    Withdrawing & Reapplying - CEC inland

    I'm seriously considering withdrawing my existing CEC inland application stuck since 2020. Is it mandatory to withdraw my current application first? I already got a new ITA, but also for CEC. I know that different streams can have concurrent applications (eg PNP + CEC), but what about CEC+CEC...

    Processing Capacity Status Feature

    Just noticed this new feature which allows us to check on the processing capacity. As of Jan 18 it seems CEC is being processed at “full capacity” while others are at reduced capacity. Just a shame my CEC application hasn’t been touched since late Oct...

    Left Canada during Implied Status - Work Experience?

    I've applied for CEC inland in June 2020, but now I just realised something that I'm worried about. I completed my degree in May 2019, applied for my PGWP right away, then started full time work in June 2019. While waiting for my PGWP (on implied status) I visited the US in July 2019 for 2...

    eTA issued for PGWP for non-visa exempt?

    I received my PGWP and applied for GCMS notes out of curiosity. It seems under document issuance there was an eTA issued, but I'm from a non-visa exempt country. Ultimately not a big deal, but I'm genuinely curious if this happens for everyone or was it a mistake by the officer?

    Police cert error

    I got an ITA and filled up the questionaire, but my document checklist now asks for two police certificates. One is rightfully Malaysia, which I expected, but the other is for USA. I've never lived in the USA, only several short trips there (I checked my travel history and made sure it didn't...

    Validity duration: SP vs TRV

    Hi all, My application for a study permit was approved, and I was issued a TRV until Nov 2019. I presented an acceptance letter from the Univ of Calgary, which will graduate from in 3 years. However, I now got a belated acceptance to British Columbia (UBC), which requires 3.5-4 years. My...

    Police Clearance Certificate for Malaysian SP Applicant

    About a week after submitting my online application for a study permit, the online status shows "cleared" for the medical, but then I got a message asking for the following document: "Police Clearance Certificate" from the Malaysian authorities.

    Submit Letter of Acceptance that I won't use?

    Hi all, I got accepted by the University of Calgary 2 weeks ago. They've sent me an offer letter which states I have to accept within 30 days, meaning I have another 2 weeks to accept. I didn't accept immediately as it wasn't my first choice and I was still waiting for that. Just yesterday I...

    Study Permit applicants from Malaysia

    Are there any other Malaysians applying for a SP for this fall's intake? Do share your experience (institution, method of application, medical report, problems, questions etc) :) I'm a bit weary of the processing time because the CIC website says 11 weeks as of 11 April, and I've only gotten...

    Financial Documents for Study Permit

    Hi all, I'm a bit confused on how to get the bank statements of my parents (who will be funding my studies), as the banks in Malaysia generally don't send paper statements anymore. It's all online, with downloadable PDFs. Will those be sufficient, or do they need to be certified? I'm planning...

    Is approval/refusal decision only sent by mail?

    I'm rather surprised to find out that the Singapore office does not notify applicants of the decision through email, which is probably the easiest and fastest way. Instead, it has to be sent via snail mail. Just wondering, is it normal that I didn't get a "passport request" email? I wrote in to...
