    BCPNP's Current/Previous Applications

    Hi rave763, 1) An EE profile is NOT an application for permanent residence, so you should answer "No" to that question. 2) I got my ITA today and I'm also confused with that question. I believe they want to know if we have more than one active application/registration, which is clearly stated...

    Hi. You can check the criteria breakdown in the following link: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/express-entry/grid-crs.asp Then you'll know why you didn't reach the minimum points. Good luck

    If you've already noticed you don't meet one of their requirements, there's a big chance you end up wasting $1,500 on an application that will probably be refused (in my opinion). On the other hand, you have good chance of getting a direct ITA maybe in the next two draws (remember we've had 3...

    Yes, only the main applicant must have CLB 7 or more. The system may show you an error message when you input her results, but don't care about it. Good luck.

    Yes, spouse's results are not mandatory (assuming you did NOT put her results on your Express Entry profile).

    You'll need to provide your wife's IELTS results only if you have put this info on your Express Entry profile and received points for her score. If you have only put your own results on your profile, then you don't need to provide her results.

    If your education was obtained outside Canada, you only need to provide your WES report (both a copy when you file the application and another copy sent directly to OINP from WES). If you ALSO have education in Canada, you need to provide transcripts for that degree too.

    Yes, I agree that the number of people in the pool increased considerably, especially because CIC took so long to make a new draw. Nevertheless, I wrote that comment considering @Mjkab's situation, whose CRS is 425. After yesterday's draw, the number of people in the EE pool with a CRS in the...

    If I were at your situation, I'd waiting for the next EE draw. Before today's draw (which took 4 weeks to happen and was the first with the new rules giving additional points to French speakers and people with Canadian siblings), the cut-off mark was below your score for five draws. I believe...

    Even if OINP is faster, you'll need to go through the federal process anyway, having to meet the same requirements whether or not you're a nominee. So, considering the whole time and costs, getting the direct ITA is faster (since you need to pass only one process) and cheaper (you don't need to...

    Hi, Samoinp. Processing times are not exactly the same for everyone, whether or not you're a nominee. The processing times announced represent the average time of 80% of all processes, so I don't think we should pay attention to this difference. Anyway, if you add up the time one would be...

    Hi, jessicita. Yes, 1,500 dollars is a lot of money, but I wouldn't think as it was wasted. I'd rather see it as something I've paid not wanting to make use, like a car insurance, for instance. I don't think anyone intentionally damages his/her own car just to make use of the money spent on...

    I beg to differ, my friend. According to the official guidelines, we can request the refund only before they begin processing our application. Once they've started, there's no refund at all. Nevertheless, I'd keep the direct ITA (which would allow me to go anywhere in Canada, including Ontario)...

    Hi, jessicita1225. Congrats for receiving the ITA! May I ask why would you decline it to receive Ontario's nomination? Isn't receiving the ITA the final purpose of applying to OINP? Or is there any other advantage for being an Ontario nominee? Thanks and congratulations!

    Thanks, umar127. So, there's no actual benefit of being a nominee other than getting the extra points, right? May I have your opinion on my strategy (I.e., holding the NOI while waiting the cut-off mark to drop down)? Thanks!

    Dear umar127 and forum members, I've been following this forum for a few months and I've already received Ontario's NOI in April. Since my EE score is 411, only 2 points below last draw's cut-off mark, I haven't applied to OINP yet because I believe the cut-off will decrease a little more and...
