Anyone knows what comes after my hubby receives back his passport? is there a course that he needs to take? THank you
Obligatory hockey lessons!

No, there's nothing obligatory except doing the landing / PR procedures on arrival (I think). The pre-arrival services may provide some useful suggestions, most of which is stuff to help him settle/acclimate.

And congrats.

You made me laugh!!lol, but that is gonna be pretty difficult cause my hubby is a soccer player and in order for him to take hockey lessons he must know how to skate and he is clueless about it. Thank you for getting back to me.

He'll be fine, I can't skate for a damn - well I can skate but badly - or shoot a puck on skates without falling down. And I grew up in Canada.

Do get him to at least pick a hockey team to support though as a spectator - I suggest the Leafs so he can suffer with the rest of us.

Hello there,

Thank you all for your helpful comments.

The last email communication I received from "Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada" was on July 29th stating that my wife's file was forwarded to the visa office in Ankara for further processing.
Since then I have not received any further communication yet.

Furthermore, my wife did the biometrics on July 24th but we have never received any confirmation if it was passed or anything in that regards.

Kindly please comment if the above 2 items are concerning or not or if I should do anything further or just wait for Ankara office to process the file.

Thank you

Read the instructions carefully. For the additional family information form IMM5406, only dependent children over 18 submit a completed form (info on the child regardless of citizenship is entered on that form for the PA/mother).

On IMM0008 (generic application form), you include all dependant children who are not already permanent residents or citizens; you should not include your son here because he is a Canadian citizen. This is true even if he has not yet received his citizenship documentation - he is a citizen even if he does not have documentation yet (note that I am assuming that you have correctly checked that your citizenship is such that he will receive, i.e. you are not second generation born abroad, etc).

Please also refer to the Checklist form (IMM5533) Section 3 - it tells you to apply for Canadian citizenship for the child, and asks you to include a copy of the documents for your son - including one of passport, citizenship certificate, or proof of application for proof of citizenship (i.e. your citizenship application for your child). You can include a short explanatory note here, i.e. you have a son together and have applied for ctizenship, copy of application attached.

So to sum up: no additional form for child; info on child is included on mother's additional background form IMM5406; info on child is not included in generic application form (i.e. the child is not applying for PR as already a citizen); and you should include something showing you expect your son to receive Canadian citizenship or already has it (you do not need to wait for him to receive his Canadian citizenship).
Thanks for your reply
