I think that you should collect all pay slips from your family business, that way the odds of it being fake will be alleviated. If you have them, tax returns will be helpful too. As you said, mention it in current employment and just be ready for the small chance that they ask for verification.
Okay… thank you so much :)
Yes I have my return filed including family business as well !

If you are not claiming points for your current job, IRCC doesn't care what job it is or who you work for. You only have to provide proof for the work experience you are claiming points for. You need to mention your current job or whatever you are currently doing in the Personal History part, and on a Schedule A form (if you are required to submit one)
You have no idea what a relief you have given me ! Thanks much :) Though, I have shed all hopes of receiving an ITA, but still !!

Wait.. This is scaring me!!! I am going to be claiming points for my one year work experience from 2015 to 2016. I worked after that too but it was mostly NOC C jobs as I was doing my masters in Netherlands.

I will get my reference letter, my salary certificate (cuz I was paid in cash) and I still have a few payslips left too! But I don't have tax returns. I will cry if my PR gets rejected because of this after busting my behind for years learning French and getting a masters.
Salary slips and Tax returns are not really need to claim work ex points. if you have a work ex letter in the required format in most cases that is enough. I did not submit salary slips or tax returns in my PR application and had no issues. However, in this particular case OP was asked to submit salary slips as "proof of funds" which is highly unusual. It is possible visa officer found something unusual about that work experience claim and was trying to be sure it is not faked.

Folks who did soft landing from US to Canada via Land, would you be allowed to stay for couple of days in Canada to apply for SIN and come back to US? Also, can we return to Canada via road from US permanently later (in a month) without PR card or PRTD?
Yes you can stay as many days as you like .. You are PR after all. No PR card of PRTD is needed to cross land border. You only need stamped COPR.

On credit history, I just learnt that AMEX credit card holders (exception AMEX travel card) may be able to transfer their credit history to Canada and get a credit card immediately. Does anyone have experience doing this? Its cool to have some credit history other than Zero.

Yes have done this. Amex also gives you a much higher credit limit which is closer to your credit limit in USA compared to a much lower credit limit Canadian banks give.

But you can't apply for AMEX transfer starightaway, you need address proof in Canada.

Well, you can't really transfer over your credit history to Canada. What this does is AMEX will take into account whatever credit history you had in the US and approve you of a CL higher than what you might normally would as a new immigrant.

I did the same thing but CAN -> US (mostly to get points lol).

First thing you should do in Canada is start your credit account or else it's hard to @MoveCan_ Buyhouse_

Hi guys! I have a weird situation. I went to do the upfront medicals in the beginning of May, a few days later I got a request from IRCC to do the medical. Then I attached their request together with the medical sheet from the clinic. The status was “We are reviewing the results of your medical exam”. Only that a few days ago they sent me another ADR requesting the medical because they “didn’t receive the one they requested”…… I called the clinic they said the results are all in the system. No idea what to do. Should I upload the same medicine the second time?

Hey guys,

I sent my passport and photos to receive copr. But I got both photos back, one glued to copr and another loose one. What photo do they use for PR card? Did they already scan these photos?

I tried this but Amex wantee an address proof which I won't have for a month. I went ahead with BMO and TD credit cards, they were approved and my score is already 700 in a week.

Will apply to Amex in a month.

I wish it was as easy like those signs you see at some stores "NO CREDIT - ONLY CASH". I would carry some cash along. But hey, if you want to buy a house no one can stop you. If I were to buy, I would look for South Asians owner, we love hard cash. :p

Are you outland? You need to upload it in your portal.
