Hello Everyone,

Below is my case:

Created Express Entry profile on Jan 15, 2016
Received Invitation from Ontario Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) on Jan 18, 2016
Submitted my Application for Ontario Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) on Feb 09, 2016
Received Acknowledgment from The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program that they have received my application. Got this email on Aug 12, 2016

Since then I haven't received or heard back anything from them yet. Any idea how long its normally taking them to process and if i need to contact them ? My Post Graduation Work permit expires on April 11, 2017 and I am not sure what should i be doing. I was thinking about applying for a bridge work permit but if i am correct i need to wait for Ontario Provincial Nominee Program to finish processing. Any tips or Idea is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Correction of Date of Birth in EE profile

Hi All,

I have a question regarding date of birth in EE profile. I submitted my EE profile and got a PT notification of interest from Ontario. Now I want to correct the date of birth on my passport. How can I do that? I have the old date of birth on all my Education documents, IELTS and ECA report.
Is there any way I can update my DOB on passport and then on EE profile?
Thank you!

Well, that is a generic reply and applicants are not expected to take everything OINP mentions literally :) . Many applicants do not get an e-mail when their file goes to assessment phase.

You can write an e-mail and ask for the status of your application. Otherwise, you can try calling them and if you are lucky, you would be able to speak to a helpful officer and he might give you some specifics about your application.
Thanks for the info Raj. I will call them and try my luck.

How you update the DOB on your PP depends on the country where you live. However, after you are done with the correction, you can update it in your EE profile.

I have my real sister as Canadian PR.

I have filled my EE profile(me being primary applicant) & a separate EE profile as my wife being the primary applicant.

Can my wife show my sister as her relative in her main profile?

& if yes, under which category of relation?

EE profile asks for any relation in Canada for both Primary & secondary applicant under same EE application. Can we both select, as we both have a relative in Canada under same EE profile(keeping in mind its only sister)?

You can create multiple profiles but you can go ahead with one (when you receive ITA). The person who gets maximum CRS points should be the primary applicant and the other should be dependent. Yes, both of you can mention her as a relative in Canada.

Please remember you do NOT get any CRS points for having a relative in Canada. You only get 5 points in the FSW points grid.

Hello,
First of all, I would like to congratulate Raj for getting his nomination :) and I hope we all get it soon. I need your help regarding my situation, here is my timeline:
re-created EE account: Feb/04/16
OINP PT Notification: Feb/08/2016
OINP App Submitted: Feb/2016
OINP AOR: Jul/13/2016
Nomination: Waiting

I got a call from an officer in Aug 2016 asking for extra documents such as T4 slips, employment duties, etc.. I sent him all the information, then I received an email on Aug/11/2016 saying the following: "Dear client,

Please be advised that your application to the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) has been referred to a senior processing officer for a decision........"
I haven't heard any updates since. I was working as an engineer with a good paying job but my PGWP expired on Oct/03/2016, therefore, I had to stop working then changed my status to "visitor"( took almost 2 months). Do you have any information on when I should get my nomination? Also, can I bridge my work permit after I receive the invitation and apply for PR or is it loo late for that? I would appreciate it if you could me any helpful suggestions. I don't know what to do expect to wait, the customer service does not answer, and their email responses are not helpful at all. Should I just leave and find work else were, or should I just keep waiting for an unknown period of time while not being able to work?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Thank you.

To apply for BOWP, you should have a work permit that is still valid for less than 4 months and you should have submitted a PR application (and your R10 check should be complete).
