    Health Claim History Request

    Records showing dates of health care services (without revealing the type or nature of the health care service itself) are not ordinarily required in the process of applying for a grant of citizenship. They can be requested if the processing agent or citizenship officer evaluating the...

    Permanent Residence Status - Expire due to Covid

    I agree in general with @armoured and with most of what has been posted by @Naheulbeuck . . . except the part about needing to stay two straight years to get back into compliance . . . if she arrives relatively soon, by sometime in August (rough estimate . . . soon enough to be in Canada at...

    Mistake on Physical Presence Calculator

    This regards the query and situation posted by @egyptbasha: This regards the query and situation posted by @CherineAmr It is not clear what sort of update either query is anticipating . . . let alone what is suggested by the question "Good news to report?" To be clear, barring a major...

    Confused about PR renewal - please advise

    Continuing . . . . Again, I agree with all that. But once the discussion goes beyond what the rule actually is, into considering how it is enforced, and how to get around it, things get complicated. They get weedy. When the discussion wanders into what work-around might be available, what...

    Confused about PR renewal - please advise

    This topics deals with one of those subjects that is a very simple matter for the vast majority of those affected, but which becomes complex, tangled, and confusing in some situations. In particular, to the extent this topic is about whether a PR needs to be physically present in Canada when...

    RQ versus Physical Presence Questionnaires, including CIT 0205

    I am quoting (in parts, so the link is readily accessible) a post from the Permanent Residency Obligations part of the forum, which provides a link to the February 2017 version of CIT 0171 . . . what we tend to call "full-blown RQ" (in contrast to other non-routine processing involving requests...

    CIT0171 Physical Presence Questionnaire

    Thank you: While there is almost certainly a more recent version of the Residence Questionnaire CIT 0171, thank you for providing this. Even though it is a version from February 2017 it is more recent than any of the other versions I have a copy of and there are some important changes. (Anyone...

    Citizenship test: Collective action required, or expect endless delays, years. Example of the effective lobbyng of people awaiting spousal sponsorship

    It is not just our choice of words, but the subjects we elect to give attention, that reveal much about what the underlying agenda is. Nearly a century ago the naturalist and philosopher Joseph Wood Krutch addressed what he called the "paradox of humanism" in a chapter of his book titled The...

    Refugee status cessation and PRs applying for citizenship

    Without looking back, other than continuing in a wait-and-see mode, the recent discussion may indeed indicate prudence favours proactively engaging a lawyer, learning what a lawyer can say about these things, and getting prepared IN CASE. I believe it has been said in response to your queries...

    Refugee status cessation and PRs applying for citizenship

    @XoticMtl Cannot emphasize enough, the time to see a lawyer about this stuff is AS SOON AS YOU CAN DO IT. For better information about what you are dealing with you really need to see a qualified lawyer. SOON. You need a lawyer who has actual experience in this subject. I expect the number...

    In Canada and unable to meet 730 days (due to COVID), yet in desperate need for PR card.

    Forecasting actual outcomes is highly speculative, far more a guess, but in the scenario you describe it is probably safe to anticipate that a PR card application is NOT likely to trigger a formal RO breach investigation or the kind of examination that would lead to a decision terminating your...

    Citizenship/PR Renewal - Address History

    I understand the question but first I feel obligated to respond to its literal meaning. There is NO such thing as applying "late" for citizenship. There is no presumptive or expected timeline for PRs to proceed with an application for citizenship. The question, I presume, is whether some...

    PRTD Approved, Entered Canada now Apply for Renewal or Relinquish PR

    Again, I am not qualified to give advice as such. Really. This is not merely a perfunctory caveat. What I tried to outline and emphasize in my previous post was much depends on not only the particular details in your current situation, but on future contingencies. Some future circumstances are...

    Refugee status cessation and PRs applying for citizenship

    Just to be clear, you really need a lawyer for this. Just obtaining the country's passport is not merely evidence of reavailment, it creates a PRESUMPTION of reavailment. You might want to consider the possibility that a defense based on 108(1)(e) might actually hurt your case. That could be...

    PRTD Approved, Entered Canada now Apply for Renewal or Relinquish PR

    I would further caution that even if you apply for and obtain a new PR card, that will not entirely restart the clock in regards to future Residency Obligation compliance. Possession of a valid PR card does NOT factor into calculating RO compliance. Generally, the positive H&C determination...

    Citizenship application with active peace bond

    I do not know. I am NOT an expert. I am especially NO expert in regards to actual practices in the Canadian criminal justice system. And, after all, each case, every allegation, depends on the particular facts and circumstances in that case. In particular, I know rather little about how the...

    Refugee status cessation and PRs applying for citizenship

    LAWYER-UP. LAWYER-UP. LAWYER-UP. I addressed a critical distinction affecting situations similar to this above, just a couple months ago. See post February 1 above. In particular To be clear, I am NO expert. But to be clear, CBSA and IRCC officials are experts. It appears they have...

    Living with a canadian citizen abroad?

    For the purpose of counting days toward meeting the PR Residency Obligation, there is a provision which gives credit to days the PR is abroad "accompanying" a Canadian citizen spouse. This is known as the accompanying-citizen-spouse-abroad-credit. IRCC practice has typically counted days during...

    Citizenship Interview Question

    My apologies for focusing on a tangent . . . the primary query has been well answered above, including the link to the PDI regarding the interview, so I hope my comments below are not too much a distraction. I do want to emphasize one aspect of the interview: one of its purposes is to verify...
