Job Offer........
Just checking in... We still don't have a DM on our application. We were sent a procedural fairness letter a little over a year ago. I got husband's serious criminality moved down to criminality.

We responded to the final letter with a plea for compassionate consideration of our circumstances. It's been almost one year with no response from CIC.

They have just recently sent a request for medicals and a new 5669 form to be filled out. They also requested that the RPR fee be paid. With no mention about hubby's potential inadmissibility.

I am hoping that we are near the end, and that this is good news. The only thing that has saved us is the open work permit pilot. We sent renewal paperwork for the OWP in September 2017. He received a new OWP in January, it's good until January 2019.

No, this is how the letter started:
"These medical instructions are being issued since your application has been processed to the stage where medical examination results are now required. Please read these instructions carefully."
and then there were instructions, that's it
Hi I’m wondering if your husband got pr already? I have a friend same in your situation.

The Inland process hasn't been 7 months for first stage in forever. It was at 11 months for at least the last 15 months.

Anyway, moot point.

Why don't you withdraw your current application and file an outland application with Ottawa?

You can remain with your spouse and you'll likely be all PR'd up and landed in roughly 6 months, given the current trends for US citizens. (Most are landing in 4 months)

Sorry to bump this dead thread but when I wrote this I was in a massive depressive state. I remember sitting and waiting, and waiting, and waiting, ran out of money, and I really did attempt to withdraw my application.

April 2015 I received a work permit. I had a few deaths in the family with took a massive toll on my to where I gave up establishing myself in Canada especially after my wife wanted to leave me for being unable to provide an income.

Until August 2015 I received a call from a major global company for a temporary job. I was hired in October 2015. In November 2015 I received my PR Status. After that everything look up and bright. After the contract was over they hired me permanently.

Now it is April 2021. I've applied for citizenship, live in BC now, and I found this threat because I wanted to give a somewhat update. I remember the spreadsheets.

Now with COVID, I don't know if the wait game has come back on the government end but to anyone if they are reading this: If you are waiting and tired of waiting, please keep your chin up. It will come to an end and you will be able to move on after the wait.
