here is the lines from cic.gc.ca

Photocopies of your proof of English or French language ability if you are 18-54 years of age. Examples of what you can provide include the following:
  • results of a third-party language test;
  • diploma, certificate or transcripts from a secondary or post-secondary education program in Canada or abroad, where the language of study was English or French
  • proof that you have reached the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 4 or higher through a government-funded language training program
my wife qualifies under point 2.
Then you need to make sure to send the diploma/transcript from the school. If it does not state that the program was taken in English, then I believe you need to include a letter from the institution stating that the language was English.

Cheers,

Hello All, I am planning to submit my application Along with my parents end of this week. But I’m having some confusion filling out the form. I was wondering if someone can help me with these questions

1. My eligibility period from online calculator shows 1 year earlier than I entered Canada. There’s a question asking do you live outside of Canada during your eligibility period. For that there’s an additional form CIT 01777 but when I click the form it’s shows the form is for crown servant and their family. Am I doing wrong to click yes for that question ?

2. I have been worked as a contractor (under my incorporation) for one year, how to list in form ? As name of employer should I use incorporation name or should I use contracting company ? Also for name of contact and emails in employment section we have to mention anyone from company ?

3. My passport expired last month, but in form it says the travel document shouldn’t have any gap or cover all eligibility period. What to do about it ?

4. I’m filling representative form for my parents and including myself as their representative. Is that okay ?

Thanks,
Hi,
I had the same issue.

1. The Live outside of Canada form is meant for people who work for Canadian company or are crown members and live outside of Canada. For them, the time spent outside of Canada will be considered while calculating presence.

For your case, Select No in that question.
No need of CIY 01777 form.

When you are listing your addresses in Q.10, mention all addresses including your out of canada address with appropriate timelines.

2. I used my Recruiter company's name and contact person details.

3. I think you should apply for your passport ASAP. And you need to mention that you have applied for renewal

4. Are your parents with you in Canada ? If that is the case, I think its not required as all your applications will be part of 1 group. Any senior members can answer and corroborate this ?

Cheers,
I got access to the spreadsheet, but for some reason, I can't make any changes to it (no adds, no edits, etc.) Not sure what the problems is, but I've seen someone added you already.

Yes, I know. I requested access to edit so I can update. I was sent an invitation to edit the spreadsheet, but I can't. Must be something stopping me. Either way, as long as someone updates it regularly, everything is good.

It should work now for you to edit... the darn permissions weren't set correctly so it was locking everyone out. Ugh.

Yes, it works now, thanks. I kept trying, but it kept staying locked.

I will add new members and post updates whenever I can. I can usually log in to the forum at least once per day.
