    TERMINATION OF FEDERAL INVESTOR/ENTREPRENEUR CATEGORY

    Just a little over one month... my VO was Port of Spain Trinidad.... I would imagine that there may be some differences based on the VO that is processing your application.

    TERMINATION OF FEDERAL INVESTOR/ENTREPRENEUR CATEGORY

    I think you can feel pretty comfortable that you are safe.... Once they requested your passports it means that you had already passed the selection process. Congratulations to you and be very thankful as there are many applicants out there who wont be as fortunate as you. Best of luck!

    TERMINATION OF FEDERAL INVESTOR/ENTREPRENEUR CATEGORY

    I had read that also, however usually they will only request medicals after completing the selection process... it is usually the final step to approval. Did they ask you to pay the RPRF with your last medical request?

    Hi Lubs64, truly sad to hear the news... I held out hope for you and the others on this forum that your applications would have been processed. I wish you and your family all the very best and hope that something else will work out for you.

    Why are these Visa applications taking so long to process?

    Hi DanMac, did you apply federal entrepreneur? if so and they have requested those documents in March 2014 you may want to consider pushing to get them in. Not sure if you are aware but there is a bill before parliament that once passed (and it is expected to be passed shortly) will see all...

    TERMINATION OF FEDERAL INVESTOR/ENTREPRENEUR CATEGORY

    No I haven't received the PR cards as yet... The application status will only change to complete when you have done your landing. I cant say for sure how long it took to change but I checked it about 2 weeks after we landed and it was changed to complete.

    TERMINATION OF FEDERAL INVESTOR/ENTREPRENEUR CATEGORY

    It may also depend on when you received your medicals request and when you submitted them. My meds were requested in November 2013, were done in December 2013 and we received our passport request late February 2014. I believe once your meds were requested and submitted prior to February 11th...

    I am going through a few business options with my business broker and was wondering if anyone could help me with a question: If I purchase a business that has 5 employees, and I maintain those 5 employees after buying the business, am I still required to create an additional job for a Canadian...

    Can I sue the Citizenship and Immigration Canada?

    Have you contacted CIC to verify the error? It seems more than strange that they will refuse on these grounds if you in fact submitted the documents.. Did you keep copies of the police certificates that you submitted? Were they within the validity period, and did you submit for each member...

    Just to update everyone, we did our landing last Saturday at Pearson International... I can confirm what has been said by so many, that the process was indeed very easy and took no more than 45 minutes from arriving in Pearson to being out the door.. Everyone was very helpful and pleasant and...

    Federal Entrepreneur Applicants

    Cant say for sure as yet.. I have until Dec 14th to land so if it looks like I wont be able to wrap up my affairs in time I may just run over sometime in August and apply for the PR card and then return to finish winding things up. For the latest I would like to land permanently by March 2015.

    Federal Entrepreneur Applicants

    its bitter sweet news today as I received my Passport request from CIC a short while ago. I feel relieved that this process is coming to an end for my family and we can begin to plan for a life in Canada, but cannot help but think of the many friends on this forum who may not be as fortunate...

    Investor and Entrepreneur Programs

    Based on my experience nabil2009, because they requested your documents does not necessarily mean that they started to process your case. In Dec 2011 they requested all of my documents, police clearance etc, then I heard nothing from them again until Nov 2013 when they requested medicals and all...

    I agree with Lubs64... there is a lot of speculation right now and unfortunately all we can do is what we have done for many years... wait for some answers!! Based on the experience of the skilled workers who were affected by similar action some time ago, I don't think that suing the Canadian...
