    My friends got the same email and they waited about a year for another email stating the date and time of the interview. They were asked to bring additional documents as proof of relationships to the interview as well. Be patient and good luck.

    39 year age gap

    The fact that you say that you are like "buddies" doesn't help at all. I saw a list of possible interview questions somewhere on this forum and I remember seeing a question: "How is your relationship with your girlfriend/wife different that that of a female friend" or something along those...

    have sent the statement of defense for divorce but he refused to accept

    This does not have anything to do with Immigration, does it? I suggest you try asking your question in a different forum.

    PR card sent by canada post?

    Well, what are they supposed to say? We don't even know if this strike will happen or not so they can't make any decision. And if the strike does happen, CIC will probably just say DO NOT USE CANADA POST TO SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION, which is kind of obvious. And for PR cards, they will...

    Urgent Spousal Sponsorship

    If you apply Inland, and she maintains legal status, she will get an Open Work Permit relatively quick, about 4-5 months. You need to send the application form for OWP together with the Sponsorship application. However, I believe that the Open Work Permit states "Does not authorize to study in...

    PR card sent by canada post?

    When Canada Post went on strike 5 years ago, I was in the middle of my Canadian Citizenship application. They sent me a letter requesting Fingerprints/RCMP clearance, and I received this letter months after. Normal processing time for these applications was about a year back then, and mine took...

    PR card sent by canada post?

    My question was what have you done about it so far? What has your MP done? What exactly is CIC saying?

    PR card sent by canada post?

    You are right...you probably won't. At least not with this attitude. I know how frustrating it can be, but there has to be something you can do about it. What have you done so far?

    Police Certificate Help!

    Submit a Case Specific Enquiry through their website. https://secure.cic.gc.ca/enquiries-renseignements/canada-case-cas-eng.aspx I would also continue calling until you get through. You can also go see your MP and they can call on your behalf. They have a different phone number so they get...

    How can I check the status with passport no#

    You can't. You need your file number or UCI.

    PR approved, what next?

    Actually, some offices DO have Service Canada stations at their locations and they are able to issue your SIN there. Which office are you landing at? Your landing letter will tell you whether you can obtain your SIN there.

    Criminal Record Check

    I find that, even though they say they don't need a Police Certificate from Canada (Fingerprints), they request it very often. So it's a good idea to send it upfront. It's only about $40 to get it done and it can significantly reduce your wait time, since they won't have to request it. Same goes...

    I don't have receipts for our shopping. Is it a problem?

    What kinds of documents do you plan to submit? Also, are you applying Inland or Outland?

    Backlog clearance--what does it mean for new applications?

    Honestly, they issued many similar statements in the past, and the processing times just keep getting longer instead. I am really curious to see what's going to happen in the next few months.

    Doing an upfront medical is a really good idea. It saves you a lot of time since you don't have to do it once they ask for it, but don't count on it speeding up the processing. I kept sending them more documents throughout the year and I had to wait for my turn. Also, I noticed that they always...

    Good news from liberal government

    Yeah that's pretty scary. I am very curious to see what's going to happen with all the application that have been submitted already. They will be processed even slower, because all of their time and effort will be put into the new applications. Let's just follow the timeline to see if they...
