Hello Guys. I really can't understand what is taking NSIO so long to reach July applications? Any one have an idea?
July applicants have to wait till march. Probably after 8 months.

As your documentation wasn't promptly accepted, the officer might have started a more extensive verification, which might involve contacting the people mentioned in your letters, and that may have to be done by your local consulate's officers. While taking this long it's unusual, there are a few other people whose approval was delayed like yours. As your file is about to complete 2 months of processing, you might try to inquire them again. But be polite, asking something like "maybe you have already sent my nomination, but it might have been trapped by the spam filter". You can mention that you're concerned, as most people you have contacted got their nominations in less than a month.

In the end, your file may be in a "hold pile", and it's possible that the simple fact that 2 months have passed without updates from whoever they asked for information makes them ignore that phase and give your nomination anyway.
thank you,
so i took your advice but i got an auto response that the person attending to my file is on vacation and would not be back until march 7th. should i wait or send another mail to the person covering for him/her

If it is an auto response, I would try to contact someone else to ask for directions. But, due to the specificity of your case, it's more likely that they will leave the matter to the person who's already aware of it.

I am having the same issue as yours. I sent additional information on the 14th of January, and am yet to get a feedback also. Please what's the name of your Nominee officer? Mine is Arianne Wentzell.

I have received three AOR mails from NSPNP But the immigration officer never included his/her name. Its usually Nova Scotia immigration officer or DM. Otherwise i would have love to send them a mail regarding my application having received a mail from them on 05.02.2016 requestin that i provide documents that support my choice of NOC to get additional 11 points required.

As far as I am concerned, the span of time an applicant has to wait isn't really 8 or 9 months, i think it has to do with the number of applications in the queue. In fact, and as highlighted by skywalker a while ago, it seems that June is under sampled in the spreadsheet. This explains the delay in processing July applications. One other reason that may cause the delay may be contributed to the fact that some of the NSIO officers are processing asylum applications filed by Syrian immigrants.

Whatever the reasons are, I wish the best for all of us.

For those who's already gotten their CPR (confirmation of permanent residency) letter and are prepping to come here - beautiful east coast, Halifax (particularly), Nova Scotia, do speak up and let me know. FYI, I am already here. Been a resident of NS for 7 years or so and a PR for close to a year now. I'd be happy to give you fellows some tips and pointers about what to expect.

Cheers...

Hi, I got my PPR last January. I sent my passport last January 22 and they received it the same day I guess since I got a notification. It has been around 22 business days and I have been waiting for my passport to be returned with visa, I hope. Is this normal? I am worried. ??? Please advise.

Hi. Would you be able to share some of your tips and pointers ? Also do you know about the prospects of a software developer (game developer) like me ? My choice tech is C++.

Hi,

I submitted documents for PR application during 1st week of December 2015, and since then, I have been trying to check the status of my application using "On-line Services". I gave correct credentials (my UCI #), but it does not show any record.

But I am able to check the status of my application using MyCIC.

Is this something to be worried? Can someone guide me on this?

Thanks in advance.
