Thanks Ogoza. It's long wait for me. I submitted my application in Jan 15 and received NSP nomination in June 2015. Long journey.

1. Have you created online profile? If yes, you need to send Profile number and Job seeker validation code to NSP

2. Once you received nomination from NSP, you are required to accept it. 600 points will be added to your score.

3. You will receive an ITA based on score set by CIC

4. Prepare documents for PR application submission.

Do not worry. Please send me message. I will guide and provide you whatever information you required. All the best

Good Morning,

I already have a profile number and job seeker validation code prior to geeting nomintaion. Thanks so much for your response. i will sure contact you for any clarification i may have.

Kind regards

Although it is a good idea, to prepare the educational documents, translations etc. and save the money for the time when the stream will be open again.
Thank you for the heads up. we will certainly do that at once.

As I said, we may get good or bad news. McCallum stated that there will be trade-offs. We hope PNs aren't significantly affected, but the fact is that economic streams are the most likely to get some reduction, as the political cost for reducing family streams is much bigger.

If, in fact, there is a slight reduction in PNs, and NS is affected by such reduction, do you sincerely think they are going to work regularly until they run out of nominations? Supposing the nominations available end in October, will they send all officers in a 2-month vacation? As NS is facing some financial difficulties, the most likely scenario would be one where they lay off some officers, resulting in the same work being done in more time.

As we still don't know how things will be handled, I'm just making some logic suppositions, but you can't dismiss the possibility of both a reduced intake and increased processing times. Another evidence pointing out in that direction is the fact that NSOI has been replying inquires regarding processing times for NS Demand with estimates between 9 and 10 months until AOR. Considering that in December they were taking only 7 months, and now we have already reached back the 8 months mark, there seems to be already happening an increase in processing times.

Hello Admin,
kindly help correct my NOC in my profile. its 1121 not 1223.

thanks.

As follow up to my previous conversation. so I sent a mail to the NSOI office and my file was reassigned to a new officer becasue the previous officer was apparently on leave. The new officer asked for my work experience letter, NOC experience table and any additional documents. I have submitted them and i waiting for the feedback. How long do you think it would take before i get a feedback.

Ok, I've updated the NOC. As for the processing, it's very hard to predict lately, but I believe it might be around 2 weeks.

Hello Friends,

I am 31st July 2015 applicant, under NOC 1111. I request the group members to please help me with my couple of doubts.

1) Does the NS give nomination under NOC 1111 category "Accountant" which is a regulated profession & requires certification? Do they give nomination to such applicants? Is there any applicant who has received nomination under this NOC without Canadian Certification as Accountant?

2) I have not given the educational certificates of my spouse, since in the application kit guidelines, there is no mention of spouse educational certificates & ECA requirements. I have submitted my Spouse IELTS score cards only. Is there any one in the group who has been in such a situation & received a nomination?

3) Have the July applicants began to receive response as yet?

Thank you so much in advance. :)
