  1. Hi
    I got The AIP before 2weeks

    Is it possible to explain to me how you have submitted a work permit ?
    Please step by step
    Especially the first questions
  2. Question: Do I really need to stay inside Canada while H&C application ? How does CIR know I am stay in Canada ? Thanks
  3. Don’t believe there is an actual requirement to stay in Canada. It should be processed whether you are here or not.
  4. Hi everyone Can anyone give an advice, i did apply for H & C in 2018 through a lawyer, and their is need for me to update my application by submitting some document to immigration, but the lawyer is not available. Is it possible to send the update to immigration personally and how do i go about it. Advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  5. Hi, you can use https://secure.cic.gc.ca/enquiries-renseignements/canada-case-cas-eng.aspx
    just follow the instructions and upload documents that they needed i hope it can help you.
  6. Folks, anybody here waiting for PRRA and HC at the same time? My cousin waiting for both at the same time - we are praying to get AIP before negative PRRA, but, oh well, all in God’s hands.
  7. I am waiting for PRRA and HC at the same time?

  8. Thanks for your reply! He applied HC in April 2019 and will file in August PRRA. CBSA said PRRA takes 6-12 months, so there is a small chance HC will be decided by then. But if not, cousin will have to leave and wait HC decision outside Canada. Because HC in process does not defer removal order.

    Do you have any plans during this wait, like going to MP etc.? And how long your PRRA has been in process, if you don’t mind sharing?
  9. Since H&C and PRRA are both handled by Humanitarian Migration Branch, they are almost usually processed concurrently despite not always decided at the same time. If your cousin gets an AIP before the result of PRRA comes out he'd get a stay of removal that suspends removal order.

  10. Yes I know. But the problem is that HC takes over a year for Stage 1. While PrRA likely less than a year...:-( so we are mentally prepared for the worst case scenario...
  11. Hi
    I got my AIP 3 months back
    Can I apply for health card?
  12. Just to note for the benefit of people in the same situation, Mis representation does not in itself disqualify from PRRA. My cousin’s PR was lost because of mis representation and he became inadmissible for 5 years, but he was still offered PRRA application before removal. Even our lawyer was not sure whether he was qualified, but - surprise, surprise - CBSA agent handed PRRA forms without giving us hard time.
  13. They have received my H&C application on June 24, 2019. How long does it take for receive a confirmation letter that my application is complete and it is ready for processing for stage 1. My understanding is they first scan your application and if anything missing and not complete, they send it back or they let you know what they are missing, etc.
  14. Multiple months. Usually a year or more to hear if your are approved for AIP. If you are applying for a parent or grandparent there is a specific program called PGP. Parents and grandparents do get refused for H&C and then they have difficulty ever visiting Canada again.
