    Applying for SIN online after landing

    Hi, I used my passport, COPR scan and a letter from TD about an overdraft protection (so not a statement) that had my address on and I received my SIN by mail after a month. I provided a Canadian number but they never sent anything by phone so I suppose if you're comfortable using someone else's...

    Applying for SIN online after landing

    I used a letter from TD regarding an overdraft protection that had my address and they sent me my SIN. I suspect any bank letter with an address would work.

    Applying for SIN online after landing

    They sent it through Canada Post. I believe they will only mail it to a Canadian address.

    Applying for SIN online after landing

    Hi, I received it after 1 month from applying and it came by mail. ServiceCanada agents (that's if you can get hold of them on the phone) can't give you any updates on the paperwork you submit online (if accepted or not), you will need to wait for the mail to come to see if you got your SIN or...

    Landed as PR / Problem with address notification for PR Card

    I called early morning, around 8 am and had to wait for about 1 hour, eventually, I managed to get a hold of an agent and they took my address. FYI, the processing time for the PR card is now around 118 days so It's been more than 3 months and I haven't received my card yet.

    Applying for SIN online after landing

    Yes, opening the bank account was fairly straightforward (I opened one with TD following a friend's recommendation). I put my Airbnb address when opening the bank account and I ended up receiving some mail and my credit card there (I didn't know you could request a pick-up from the branch)...

    Applying for SIN online after landing

    I didn’t need a sin to open the bank account. They told me whenever I get the SIN I can contact them to update the info. As far as I understand, it’s not necessary to have a SIN and most banks will open an account for you without one.

    PR card application

    I just applied online today after the system was back and I wanted to ask you a question. It said on the application that they would confirm if your documents were correct and valid. Did you have any form of confirmation? In regards to the SIN application number you received after your...

    PR card application

    When I landed the immigration officer didn't ask for an address to mail my PR but gave me the following link https://services3.cic.gc.ca/ecas/introduction.do?app=coanotify and told me to update my address through it. What I realized afterwards, as many in the forum have also mentioned, is that...

    PR card application

    Same here, landed on the 16th of March. Had to call to give them the address since I couldn't find my application through "address notification" link. Linked the application to my CIC Account and nothing has changed. I don't know how to get any update. I also don't have an SIN and don't want to...

    Landed as PR / Problem with address notification for PR Card

    Two quick questions. How long did it take for the PR to be issued from the date when they received your address? Was there anywhere in your documents where you could tell that the officer didn't confirm the PR? Did my first landing yesterday and I am getting the same error message you got...

    September 2018 AOR - join here

    Hi folks, Got a document request from CIC asking for Schedule A, passport bio page, a new police clearance from since I submitted my application and then my height and eye color. I found that last part a bit odd. Anyone was asked for their height and eye color before? I already cleared my...

    Express Entry Profile submitted a while ago but no NOI from Ontario yet

    Hi there, An update on my situation. I received a message in my account with the following: Doesn't exactly say if I was picked for the FSSW or HCP streams. I received the message on the 12th of April, and after I checked http://www.ontarioimmigration.ca/en/pnp/OI_PNPNOI.html I assume it's...

    Express Entry Profile submitted a while ago but no NOI from Ontario yet

    Hi, I browsed through my profile once again and noticed that while I submitted my profile with french as my first language, for the Question "Which language are you more comfortable speaking" I left the default answer which was English unchanged. I didn't think it mattered but in retrospective...
