It’s asking me to pay fees..
I am inside Canada ordering for my self only!!
Can u plz guide!
If this occurred, where it's asking you to pay a fee, it is highly likely that you entered something on the questions that either you selected a representative that's requesting info, or that you selected something different from the Privacy Act choice.
Please see the below suggested answers to the questions; no fee is asked this way. I did my request in the past and so have others, and no fee was asked for us to pay.

Hi, yes, you do require to bring your two photos to your landing interview.
As per instructions included in the email attachment (landing letter plus PR photos instructions), it specifies that one photo should include the information you mentioned on your post. The other photo is blank on the back.
I knew some people brought to landing interview a set of two stamped photos, and they are accepted.
I don't understand why CIC need a photo with completely blank on the back.

Has anyone finished the landing-interview got this letter before? I don't have it yet, I've just saw one person said he got the DM letter.

/This refers to the Application for Permanent Residence you made under the Spouse or Common-Law Partner in Canada Class.

We are pleased to advise you that processing of your application has been completed. The Canada Immigration Centre in (your town) will contact you to arrange an appointment for the finalization of your permanent resident application.

IMPORTANT: You and your family members, if any, will be required to present original identification document(s) to the Canada Immigration Centre at your appointment. A final decision concerning the granting of permanent residence status will be made at that time. If permanent residence is granted, the name that will appear on the confirmation of permanent resident document is your name as it appears on your passport or identity documents./

Wow, two months is quite a waiting period. Did you ask agent if you are under "implied status" during this period, and if you would you be under "implied status" if your current work permit expires? It is usually implied status, but not completely sure about this.
Can you share with us, what's the DM letter?

Any update on this? Did you get AOR or refusal letter? Or nothing yet?
Yes. I got AoR at the end of January. I have also been able to link my paper application to my CIC account. The application is currently under process. My family's 'extension to stay' application has also been approved for a year.

CIC asked for a medical for the extension application, which we have done recently. However, CIC is now asking a medical for the sponsorship application as well. My question is do we have to do medical twice? Can anyone help on how I can use the medical results that has been done for the extension application (done very recently) for the sponsorship application?
