    American spouse application questions

    DO NOT APPLY INLAND. You want to apply "outland". She can freely apply outland and stay in canada as a visitor while her application is processing. US outland applicants are being approved in 5-6 months, as opposed to the 12-16 months it's taking for inland. THERE IS NO REASON FOR A US...

    US outland applicants' thread :)

    if you will be bringing items after landing, then you will want to tick the "goods to follow" box on the form. you won't have to bring in the items all at once or at all. there is no time limit to when you need to bring everything in either. where the items are located is irrelevant to the...

    Mistake by CIC

    aren't document requests submitted through MyCIC now, not by direct email? i also recommend sending a case specific enquiry to know for sure. perhaps you can copy/paste the request you received without your personal information so we can be more helpful.

    once allowed into canada, you can then apply to extend your stay as a visitor so you can live together and qualify for commonlaw. when in canada as a visitor, you can not work for a canadian employer. you CAN work remotely for a US employer if you have that option.

    Application do not meet the requirement for immigration to Canada

    it does not sound like you are applying for family sponsorship, as proof of education is not required for applying. you need to post this question on the board specific to the stream of immigration you are applying for - which is the skilled worker or express entry sections of this forum.

    Can my common law partner sponsor me for PR while I'm at university in Canada?

    did you send an application for an open work permit along with your PR application? if so, that's the only way you can have implied status. The OWP application gives you implied status until you receive the decision about that permit. if you did not submit an OWP application, then you do NOT...

    US outland applicants' thread :)

    you will definitely need to start the application from scratch. your old documents will be helpful in answering the questions, but that's about it. the entire package and the requirements changed in january and they will not accept the old packet. you may also find some of the forms have been...
