What do you think the minimum amount of wait time is, start to finish? Also, once you get word of being accepted, how much time do you have until you have to arrive in Canada? I'm debating whether I should take on a teaching contract in a third country while we wait. I would be in Asia and my husband would stay in Egypt. He can't visit me in Canada and I have had enough of Egypt! Cheaper for me to fly to visit him and he would be able to come to me.
