Hi everyone!
I work as a Live-in Caregiver since 2008
CIC started processing my PR application - dec 1, 2010
Decision Made - november 29, 2012 (letter date)
work Permit valid until december 5, 2012. Applied for renewal of work permit on November 5, 2012 but returned on dec 27, 2012 because of a missing signature on one page. In the letter, I was instructed to apply for restoration of status in addition to the work permit (and submit w/in 90 days).
I applied for restoration of status on February 7, 2013 but it was forwarded to the wrong processing unit in CIC Vegrevile (according to an agent I spoke with). He said they transferred my application on march 20 to the unit which handles restoration. which will be considered as the start of processing? Feb 7 or March 20?
Im so worried and frustrated now. Thanks

I applied for a restoration of status on January 10th and I am still waiting for it to be processed. Does anybody know if I could cross the border and do a walk-in in one of the cic centers and get it approved in a day? I have a US visa.

I'll be glad to help any one who needs any help with their application for extension. I did mine online.
Have a great weekend people.

I guess yours is taking so long cos your file was just opened in april or so according to your earlier post.maybe there was a technical problem when you submitted, you need to start counting from gthe day your file was opened, mine was opened on the 24th of march so my 16 weeks count should be from then, but I pray its not up to that cos sweetpie got hers so soon. I pray I get it before the end of the month.
