    nope don't. Interac is shit compared to UPI. I find tap and pay at stores to be awesome. However, some stores like certain No Frills, Costco refuse to accept Visa Credit Cards. Backward AF. Having said all that, the bitchiness on this group for those looking to move to Canada is next level...

    WES-equivalent for INDIAN DIPLOMA- 3 years

    My sibling got a secondary school diploma equivalency for a 2-year post Xth diploma from WES. Is this accurate? My understanding is she needs a 2-year Diploma equivalency to qualify for two or more degrees/certificates/diplomas (her equivalency summary is Bachelor's Degree - four years).

    yep, but the best ploy (personally used) is to get a date. Then keep an eye out for cancellations. Managed to move my folks up by a fortnight.

    the simple thing is that you can mention you have 150 degrees in personal information, and yet have ECA just for your master's as it is your highest degree. That's what I did. No sweat.

    I get your frustration. I think it's high time, about 6 years since FSW started, that communication improves. They aren't abandoning FSW despite the naysayers. All they need to do is put out a tweet or some form of communication that says, "hey, this is taking time cuzza the pandemic. Our...

    yeah that makes no sense. You need to travel urgently and they ask you to re-apply. This can only mean the backend system ain't able to keep up with the demand and they have no way to sort it except asking people to re-apply. I had applied last month and just got visa approval on H&C grounds...

    FSW WORLDWIDE

    it's complex. 1. Canada wants more people to replace ageing population. 2. Companies are happier with growing population as they can continue to keep pay growth relatively low compared to cost of living (won't comment on RE because at the rate at which it is going up, folks will need 15%...

    it does make sense. but, it also points to the fact that they have serious tech issues. Hence, I think the conversation around investing more into upgrading tech.

    They did. Plain and simple. People want you to be +ve here on this forum and for good reason - the negativity here is through the roof. The funny part is they are asking those who want to travel on H&C grounds to re-submit. It's pretty bad.

    nope, he isn't but it's half information. They have cancelled applications for those wanting to visit Canada on Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds. The rest stands as is. I had applied for my folks on those grounds and received visa approval last week. So, not sure what's happening with the...

    when you say apply as part of one application, you mean fill the form just for my father and attach all supporting documents, and include mother as someone traveling with father, right?

    Applying on behalf of parents - can I use my email ID and contact information? I am guessing the answer is yes.

    Visitor Visa (Parents) January 2021.

    the problem is visitor visa without exceptions are difficult at this point in time. you can apply for compassionate reasons. you'll need proof of course signed off by a medical practitioner.

    Does anyone know if Arya Samaj wedding certificate (India) is accepted as marriage proof for parents? They have each other's names mentioned on their passports.

    Can I exploit the EE system with this method?

    Not sure what you are getting at, but you can do all of the above. The words used though are misleading - you are NOT gaming the system. You are NOT hiding your work ex or education. NOT claiming points or NOT revealing all edu/work ex does not equal gaming the system. It's up to you really...

    Ray of hope - FSW - 1

    India is poor if you choose to ignore that money there is used for buying MLAs and free vaccine is promised to voters if they vote for the ruling party. There are other countries out there that definitely need it. Canada is making sure we go the US way and vaccinate a significant proportion of...

    Ray of hope - FSW - 1

    I'll leave Canada and hand my PR over to someone on this forum if FSW is discontinued. The govt. will restart FSW sooner than later - essentially, if you are living in a million dollar house in the GTA, get ready to see its value soar to 1.5 million in the next 3 years. Unaffordable housing and...
