    Pr renewal - humanitarian and compassionate prtd

    Ohhh, what about the "ignoramus, pithecanthropoid, and provocateur" (you know the one) who trolls, spewing sarcastic sludge, disrupting efforts to offer genuine responses and engage in sincere discussions about an OP's legitimate inquiries and problems? And reeking in inane irrelevant...

    How and where we can apply for h & c grounds i am short of 730 days obligation

    Makes a big difference if you are in Canada or outside Canada. I outline various scenarios below: CURRENTLY IN CANADA SCENARIOS -- -- If you are currently IN Canada, better to wait until you have stayed in Canada long enough to be in compliance with the PR Residency Obligation BEFORE applying...

    How to know whether I was reported at point of entry?

    Based on your account of the examination it appears unlikely, perhaps it is safe to say highly unlikely, that a formal "Report" for inadmissibility was prepared against you. This is referring to the 44(1) Report for inadmissibility due to a breach of the Residency Obligation. As @steaky...

    what business abroad do count for permanent residence in order to get the citizenship.

    what business abroad do count for permanent residence in order to get the citizenship. Responses from @armoured and @engray and @scylla cover it. It is simple. Running a business abroad, or being employed by a business while abroad, will NOT qualify for credit toward meeting the citizenship...

    What is Prohibitions form

    Apart from the vagaries in current procedures due to measures in response to the global pandemic, if the applicant is presented a "prohibitions form" that is to document the now "candidate" (once approved for a grant of citizenship, the applicant becomes a "candidate" for citizenship) still has...

    Interview Experience with Citizenship Officer November 2021

    Agreed. Apart from the distractions and polemics from a perspective that either does not understand or is deliberately dissembling what "immigration" means, failing to recognize that the grant of Canadian citizenship to immigrants, individuals who were formerly Foreign Nationals, is an integral...

    Interview Experience with Citizenship Officer November 2021

    Obviously. In contrast that is neither what I do nor what I consider useful or interesting. You continue to attack me with unfounded accusations, misconstruing my posts, mischaracterizing me and my observations, attributing motives to me that I do not have. You suggest, for example, I do not...

    Re-entering Canada without PR Card, only CoPR and passport - by plane

    At the risk of belaboring this more than necessary, some further clarifications: Despite some Federal Court decisions in effect curtailing CIC/IRCC further screening of PRs after the issuance of a new PR card has been approved and actually issued (at least one explicitly ruled that once the...

    Interview Experience with Citizenship Officer November 2021

    I understand that you disagree with the proposition that if and when IRCC officials perceive an applicant to be pursuing a passport-of-convenience (or something similar), that increases the chances of elevated scrutiny. And yes, it is my perception, to the contrary, that if and when IRCC...

    Interview Experience with Citizenship Officer November 2021

    This is another of your descriptions about what I have said that very much misses the point: RQ inquires about the past and he's conflating it with questions on future intentions to add legitimacy to his own speculations. These are two separate things. No, I do not conflate post-application...

    Interview Experience with Citizenship Officer November 2021

    That and more . . . including characterizing me as a "fake guru." Generally ad hominem is not worth addressing. The substance of the content is what is important. But you really misread me and my efforts to contribute here. I make a concerted effort to focus on what can be discerned about...

    Interview Experience with Citizenship Officer November 2021

    Shorter Version: The scope of questions potentially asked during an interview of citizenship applicants is very broad. Procedural fairness standards do not apply to or limit the scope of questions asked or govern the reasons for which IRCC subjects an application to non-routine processing, be...

    Re-entering Canada without PR Card, only CoPR and passport - by plane

    Based on what you have reported, absent some other circumstances inviting concern, a two week trip returning by private transportation, and presenting an expired PR card, suggests little cause to worry about how things go at the Port-of-Entry. I understand the reluctance of @armoured to give a...

    Interview Experience with Citizenship Officer November 2021

    I do not mean or intend to argue the observations I have made, offered to illuminate and inform, to provide information that might help applicants and prospective applicants make decisions in navigating their own path toward citizenship, and to better understand what is happening along the way...

    Residential Obligation due to Covid

    Responsible observers here tend to avoid quantifying probabilities for being Reported at the Port-of-Entry. This is in large part due to what is unknown about border officials current attitudes and approaches, generally let alone the particular officers the traveler actually encounters. But a...

    Interview Experience with Citizenship Officer November 2021

    I make a concerted effort to follow and research how certain aspects of the grant citizenship application process actually works, and an honest effort to explain what I learn. I am no expert, for sure. But I leave the blinders off and focus on, as best it can be discerned, how things actually...

    Interview Experience with Citizenship Officer November 2021

    It is entirely appropriate for IRCC processing agents to ask questions which might reveal a motive to engage in fraud, to make inquiries which go beyond factual details and probe for indicators of evasiveness or deception. Make no mistake, the applicant's credibility is a huge, huge factor in...

    Residential Obligation due to Covid

    As @armoured noted, basically all you can do to reduce the risk of being "Reported," upon arrival here, is to get here as soon as you can. No guarantee that early next year will be OK but as @armoured also noted it appears there is broad leniency for many and the impact of the global pandemic is...
