    March - April PNP PR Batch :)

    fenomenalb, you say: "Who are you to say that everyone who has been nominated is guaranteed a PR in the first place?" The approval rating for provincial nominees at the federal level is 96%. The approval rating at the provincial level is something like 94%. Why? Because it's a broken...

    March - April PNP PR Batch :)

    Yes, exactly. Nominees were given priority over other PR applicants. This aspect of the PNP has made it incredibly popular among prospective immigrants (like yourself). In turn, visa offices have been flooded with PNP applications thus accounting for the slower processing time. Add to this, the...

    March - April PNP PR Batch :)

    Sorry for the confusion. There are 3 different streams for the NS PNP: 1) skilled worker stream 2) family business stream & 3) the community identified stream Your individual circumstances would dictate which stream you're most suitable for. The community stream doesn't require a job offer.

    March - April PNP PR Batch :)

    I wouldn't get too upset, if I were you. You should be pleased that they're processing your application. I don't think you have anything to worry about. The process may just take a little longer than you anticipated. No big deal! If there was something wrong with your application you'd have...

    Sorry Tina, Just one last question, if you don't mind? Are you a community identified applicant? Thanks in advance.

    March - April PNP PR Batch :)

    Maybe CIC made a mistake. Call or write them and share your concerns and seek clarification. Stress to them that you never lived in these places. If that fails then just order the PCCs from these countries. How long did CIC give you to send them in? By the way, which stream (of the PNP) did...

    March - April PNP PR Batch :)

    Hi Tina, I have a friend from China who had a similar experience. He made frequent business trips to the U.S. but never resided there. As a result, CIC asked him to produce a PCC (from the U.S.) when he applied for PR after receiving a B.C. nomination. Instead of obtaining the PCC, I believe...

    Important AINP - Work Permit related Issue!!!

    If I understand your situation correctly; then i think you'll have to leave the country, apply for a job within Alberta and use the offer of employment alongside a letter of support from the nomination office to re-apply for a Work Permit. Staying in Canada without status will only hurt your...

    Can I come to Canada with just the PNP?

    Quick correction... A supporting letter from the nominating province is a valid substitute for an LMIA. A job offer is still required, however.

    Can I come to Canada with just the PNP?

    I'm fairly certain that to get a work permit you must have a job offer and an LMIA. I don't believe a provincial nomination by itself is enough to qualify you unless you're a nominee who's already in Canada and your current WP is due to expire in less than four months. This obviously doesn't...

    Can I come to Canada with just the PNP?

    Hi Davide, If you can find employment within the nominating province (by applying from abroad) then you may apply for a closed work permit. If you obtain a CWP then your spouse may apply for an open work permit. Your children would be permitted to attend school if you can obtain a TRV...

    2014 APPLICANTS - NOVA SCOTIA NOMINEE PROGRAM(WITHOUT JOB OFFER)

    Hi Arandas, congrats on your nomination! I'd strongly recommend that you live in NS while awaiting PR - it looks better to CIC. They (CIC) may question your intent to live in the nominating province if you're residing in Ontario. Quick question though: how did you manage to obtain a nomination...

    Study permit expired need help PR application in process any one in similar case

    If you graduated then you are eligible for a post graduate work permit. These are typically good for 1 to 3 years depending on your program of study. I don't believe you're eligible for a bridging open work permit since you don't currently hold a WP that's due to expire in less than 4 months...

    Is it okay.... (urgent and confusing)

    Since the spouse of a nominee is eligible for an OWP does any one believe that an international student (who's also the spouse of a nominee) could legitimately switch from a SP to an OWP? In other words, could the spouse of a nominee dump his/her current status as a student in favour of an...
