congratulations! it seems this is the only positive news of the week. all the very best for your life as a free Canadian PR.Enjoy your freedom and liberty of move.Canuck*soon said:Hello all. It's official .... Thrilled beyond words.
We arrived approximately 10:45AM for our 11:15 appointment and there was one other couple in the large waiting room. After waiting several minutes, they called the other couple in and they exited after about ten minutes or so. We were called in next and it seemed very informal and the CIC officer was very nice. She went over a document with us, examined our passports and the documents that we brought with us, and after asking the three questions has me sign.
The only glitch was I may need to redo my photo, as she said it wasn't to exact specifications ( the background may not be white enough and my head didn't fit exactly in the space, though I had gone to someone that advertised that they provide this service. She said she would go ahead and submit it and if it needs to be redone I would receive a letter in a couple of months with directions and also told us where to have the photos taken.
She then sent us next door and we were able to obtain my social insurance number.
Stay positive everyone...praying for great news for all soon.
