  2. yes May-June, but considering we don't see a three week gap between any draws in between & ITA's to be given with size more than 3000 each time.

  3. When did you receive the ITA?
  4. 8th or 9th depending on how you looked at it. It is sorted now, I am deleting the post. They are happy to induct me under "Worker" upfront meds :).

    Sorry for the long post, but I need some suggestion about the following:

    We both (me & my wife) are done with WES and Language test. I'm waiting for PCC and my wife is working in Sweden (on a work permit). She will be the main applicant. We are getting confused about 2 things:

    1. She completed her coursework for Masters from Sweden in September 2015 and started working full-time from then (it is allowed to work full time in Sweden with a student permit). She received her work permit in November 2015, continued working and submitted her thesis in December 2016 (so WES is showing her masters year as 2016). So overall, she worked full time on the student visa for the first two months, then received her work permit and continued working and submitted thesis a year later. Will there be any problem with CIC as she started working full time with a student permit in Sweden (as working full time with a student permit is not allowed in Canada as per I know)?

    2. Her work permit expired after 2 years in November 2017 and she applied for an extension before the expiration date. The application is under process now and she is allowed to work when the process is ongoing (according to the Swedish Law, stated on their website and followed by Swedish companies). But if CIC wants to see the copy of the work permit, the one she has right now has expired in November 2017. It might take another 2-3 month to receive the approval of her extension. Currently, we only have the copy of the application for the extension.

    In this situation, should we go forward and submit the Express Entry application (and believe that CIC will be reasonable enough to check back how the Swedish Immigration Process works) or should wait for the extension to get approved? Our total score will be 440 as per our calculation, So there is a good chance that we will get picked in the upcoming draws, but we're worried that if we can not provide the work permit with the specific date then the application might get canceled.

    Any suggestion is welcome about the above two problems.

    @legalfalcon , someone in the forum suggested that you can help. Thanks iin advance.
  6. Hi.. I know i m posting a weird query but would still appreciate a revert:
    If date of birth is 27th of a month, the point drops according to age criteria on 27th morning post 12.00 am (12.01 am) or 28th night before 12.00 am. (11.59 pm)
  7. I suggest you to tag @legalfalcon to your query...

    Be aware that while studying and working can be call as part-time work... I don’t have much knowledge about it, but make sure that you have the true information about this...
  8. Thanks for your reply.
    Yes, we are quite sure about that; Swedish Migration agency allows to work 40 hours while someone is on a student visa. The only problem is it differs with the Canadian law where I believe someone cannot work for more than 20 hours on a student visa.

    @legalfalcon , can you please help with the two questions I have mentioned above?

  10. Hi All

    Have been going through your posts. I am currently in the pool at CRS 428.

    Profile goes this way:-

    Sibling in Canada- Yes ( Currently staying in Ontario )
    Education- Bachelors Degree (3 years) - Verified by WES
    Work Experience- 1.5 years in Marketing
    IELTS GT- S-8.5, R-9, L-9, W- 7
    Date of joining EE- 4th Oct 17

    I am also doing my PG Diploma in Business Administration (1-year course) through Dist. Learning from IMT-CDL. The course finishes in Jun 2018.

    Except for this, I have registered for a 1-yr PG Diploma in International Business from IGNOU in Jan this year.

    I wanted to seek opinion on the following:-

    1) I just wanted to know the feasibility of getting through CRS 428. By when can I expect the same considering close to 5k applicants in the range of 431-440.
    2) A major challenge is getting the Dist. Learning credential verified. Which agency would you prefer for this and how much time would it take to get the IMT credential evaluated?

    PS- My score changes to 461 if I get this evaluated. I have gone through various threads and got to know that WES won't verify it.

    3) Best Strategies to get through the cut-off in less time

    PS- I have no knowledge of the French language.
  11. I've a different query. My CRS score is 435 and I'm applying for many jobs through Job bank which is a Canadian government website. The weird thing is, no one is even replying for my emails that I've sent to the employers. I find it really confusing because even if they're not interested in my profile, normally they should send an email in my country. Do you guys know anything about it or anyone experienced the same thing?
  12. it seems like JobBank is a joke
    Sandeep198511 and Chris Puth like this.
  13. So sad! Do you guys know any other ways to get a job offer in Canada? Like any other websites? Because, i heard that a job offer provides 50 additional points!!! Any additional points are really crucial.
  14. At 435 you are on the "maybe" list, so a job is not that crucial. I am pretty sure once OINP inducts the 8th Feb Intake you will be in
  15. Hi I have only one concern on this. If her master's degree date is 2016 and you are applying with an NOC that is based on the master's degree, you may not be able to claim for the work experience acquired in that NOC prior to getting the degree that makes her eligible (i.e. year 2016). I am saying thing based on the question one has to answer while filling up the EE form.
