Hello guys , I would like to ask you did I need to police clearance for canada as I am here for last 7 years and if yes then how long before I can do ? I am gonna apply under highly medical needs in June end 2018. Your answer would be really appreciated.
You need police clearance for ALL countries you have lived in for more than 6months. There is no leaving it off the list. Its actually one of the documents requested on the checklist!

Have anyone seen the new rule they set for those who come to Canada on the care for children pathway? Looks like who don't make 2 years until November 2019 won't be eligible to apply for the PR.
How come they put that new rule? I had a friend applying for the program really soon and he was hoping to be a permanent resident!!

"We will stop accepting applications for this permanent resident program on November 29, 2019. If you don’t have two years of full-time work experience as a caregiver before it closes, you won’t be eligible to apply."

https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/caregivers/children/eligibility.html
This is a huge slap in the face. They came in with this program to replay the old system! Now they are saying its a pilot program? These people really take caregivers for a fools they need to stop this foolishness

Hi, I will also be applying for PR on May 20 under Caring for children class (new pathway). So I’ve been here in Canada for 3 years and 3 months now. I got my police clearance in UAE but they just sent me the certificate by email only. Would that be just okay submitting the print out only and not the original copy? I applied for the police clearance by the way last January and it says valid for 3 months only. Whereas on the immigration website it says it is considered valid for one year from the date of issue. Would that also be alright? And lastly I also would like to know if I still need to apply Police Clearance here in Canada at RCMP? I hope someone will enlighten me about my querries. Good luck to all of us!

You need original copies for police checks and you don't need a police clearance from Canada. Also if the date on the police certificate is less than a year old then you're all good

You don't need a police check for Canada- my friend just got approved her pr for Canada and only included police checks from the countries she had lived in prior to moving to Canada (for 6 months plus)

Wow that’s so fast. I’m also an RPN. By the way do you have any dependent? I’m going to sponsor my husband so I’m worried if that’s gonna slow down the process.

Single application. If you have everything in place it should be fine. Max time to process is 2 months
Did you apply already?

I haven’t. I’m going to apply it in mid July when I reach my 2 years full time experience. My work permit is going to expire in August 31, so I really want to get it done or at least get file number very soon so I apply for bridge open work permit. Thank you very much and please keep updated about timeline
