Does the government really need to know that I have a spending problem?? LOL
I don't have any debt other than my mortgage(which I think is an investment rather than debt). Good credit ratings, always pay my taxes, own several vehicles, good enough job and I have a 20months old baby girl who was born and raised here in BC...
My RQ will be mailed off in the next few days.. but seeing some of you have been told to wait up to 48 months after submitting the RQ is scaring me.
and there is privacy issue too. I don't think CIC have the right to look at our health history and financial statements. If they have preception and suspect us, I don't think it helps no matter how many additional proof we give them. Nevertheless, from other seniors in this forum, those proofs are only additional and can't promise anything. I also have read the stories from other people in the forum that even they showed the financial proofs to CIC, they accrused the applicants that the financial transactions or the credit cards were used by someone else, not the applicant. I don't know why we have to be treated as a suspect of fraud and defend ourselves like this in order to become a Canadian. If CIC were troubled by their audit results, they should find ways to resolve it, not to play game on us.
US, Australia, New Zealand, they need less than 6 months to complete the application for citizenship. I thought Kennedy keep saying following the model of those countries.
