    received medical request of canada PRand US DV lottery 2014 first letter

    In my opinion, I would choose the US Visa lottery as there are many more opportunities over there than here in Canada. Obviously, where you choose will be up to you and what it is you are wanting for you and your family. Canada in my opinion, is not all it is cracked up to be. Many skilled...

    Is it worthy ?

    Just as some of the members said, it will be difficult initially and whilst there is no guarantee for some that they would attain the same level they left behind or surpass it, individuals would measure their own success based upon the reasons that brought them here in the first place. As for...

    Withdrawal of application

    Before withdrawing, ask yourself the reasons why you wanted to come to Canada in the first place. What Marcus has said is very true but this does not mean it would continue forever.

I understand his frustration as in Canada, your skills and qualifications are not recognised...

    Federal Skilled Worker Class Action Lawsuit

    Good luck to those individuals pursuing this although one wonders what the result might be seeing that the Canadian Govt was intending on returning monies paid. As for those wanting to pay money for the class action suit, paying by Western Union is never a good idea as anyone can claim the...

    Landing and PR card

    Unfortunately, you cannot complete your landing in Montreal. Quebec is the only province you cannot land to complete your immigration and would need to come to Ontario or any other province to complete the formalities.

    PR card information

    It is possible for someone who came on 16th to have received their PR card before someone who landed on the 12th as someone who landed without an address for the PR card to be sent would then need to establish an address before being able to sort the PR Card out. It is currently taking 53...

    Pls advice

    Owing the Council is not a criminal offence and should not even be on your Police Certificate. When the Council is owed, it usually takes them a while to chase outstanding debts usually, through debt collectors and if this does not work then they take you to the magistrates court which you can...

    Family member landing before Primary Applicant

    I do not understand why some of you like to push or seek for things that are not there. The rule clearly states that on occasions, there are family members who have tried landing before the principal applicant however, this is not allowed unless it can be proven that the principal applicant was...
