    Ray of hope - FSW - 1

    You really don't have to worry about the famous "Canadian Experience". I also have a foreign degree and no Canadian Experience. I had absolutely no problem in getting offers for a software development job. I also know a bunch of people in software field who came recently to Canada and typically...

    Ray of hope - FSW - 1

    I lived in the US on a h1b and then moved to Canada. Personally life in Canada on a PR thumps life in US on a h1b anyday. My only complaint is the crazy housing market in the GTA, as buying the first house is very difficult as it is expensive. I think the government really dropped the ball when...

    Yep, and additionally if you trade in your RRSP account, even the dividends from US stocks will not be taxed!

    Ray of hope - FSW - 1

    I really doubt even IRCC knows when they will resume the FSW draws unfortunately. Ultimately the reason for the CEC only draws can absolutely be traced back to the coronavirus situation. We can only hope that the case count reduces soon so that things go back normal.

    Passport held by Fedex - Commercial Invoice required

    Hi @pjain64 sorry for the late reply. The fedex person told me something similar as well, I just gave the IRCC phone number from the IRCC website. I don't think any delivery person ever calls the number, the local delivery people are familiar with IRCC I expect. I didn't have any problems with...

    Crossing the border in rental car or truck

    You can surely do this. I was also interested in this option earlier and to make sure I called the CBSA (Canadian Border Security Agency), the official authority on who will allow you entry into Canada. They confirmed that passport and CoPR is sufficient to enter canada by land in your...

    Sorry, I don't follow what you are saying. The link I shared clearly says 400,000 study permits issued last year. it is safe to say the count of students entering will be close to that, it is unlikely too many of the study permits go unutilized as people generally do not throw money away for no...

    That is very true. However keep in mind that every student is given an open work permit valid for upto 3 years when s/he can work for any employer in Canada to gain the Canadian work experience upon successful completion of their Canadian study. So every one of those students have the potential...

    Actually just those with Canadian education provide more than enough candidates to reach the economic immigration target. There are about 400,000 students entering Canada every year and around 100,000 ITAs issued each year. Even if they give all the ITAs to those with Canadian education, there...

    From what I have seen Many CEC candidates don't have 8777 in IELTS

    Ray of hope - FSW - 1

    Unfortuantely I don't think IRCC sees it that way. They think that now outsiders will have to come through the route of canadian education first. So going forward they continue to get their influx of people from outside. but those who want to come to Canada are now forced to opt for Canadian...

    Ray of Hope - 166th Draw - All Program

    Hi Bro, I love your can do attitude. I hope you get your PR soon. I moved from US to Canada on a PR and just to add to what you said, the salaries in Canada are lower than US but not that much lower in the long term. Especially when you factor in benefits like the fact that you can confidently...

    Singapore COC / PCC

    When I applied there was either an email or an online form to communicate with them. I would recommend contacting them and requesting them to mention the correct dates in the CoC

    Singapore COC / PCC

    Yes it mentions the exact period of stay in the COC. IRCC expects the dates provided in COC should cover your entire stay in Singapore

    Ray of hope - 152nd Draw - CEC

    You should go by whatever date is supported by your education documentation. For example what is the date of completion mentioned in your graduation certificate? Logically that is the date that matters because when the IRCC officer is verifying the data that you have entered in your application...

    Ray of hope - 152nd Draw - CEC

    Just my two cents, but If you plan it well it can be quite easy. To make sure you don't return home without PR, there are few things you need to do when you come to Canada. 1.) Do a masters in Canada, not a diploma/certificate course. A lot of people make the mistake of not doing master's and...

    Ray of hope - 152nd Draw - CEC

    No i don't think it would be a problem. It is common for people to create a profile and forget the password, so they create a new profile. All the best!

    Why don't you create one more profile with your wife as accompanying. That way you can reject the current ITA after you receive the next one.

    Ray of Hope - 150th Draw - CEC

    Starlordvadu also mentioned he had an issue when he changed from noc 2173 to 2174. Can you try with noc 2173 just to confirm if the system currently has an issue with 2174?
