Did anything happen in between?
Your status still shows Waiting for AOR...
I didn't update my status but medical done and received pre arrival services.

I have read some in the forum who are still waiting for Copr and ppr months after receiving pre arrival services.

Wondering how to speed things up a bit.

Anyone else with their case at manila visa office? Or is manila only handling the medicals for Asia and Copr decision is by the office handling the case? I'm confused.

Hi I am new to this forum.

I am an architect/ interior designer and have owned my company for 15 years. I have some awards and have been working with some renowned clients. I would like to use the self-employed programme as interior designer falls under the cultural activity and hope I can fulfill the requirements.

But as far as I understand, interior designer in Canada should be certified/ registered. i.e. it is necessary to have certain education requirements ( or equivalent overseas education) AND experience under direct sponsor AND pass the exam. Does anyone have similar experience to share? Since I still work outside Canada and it's impossible to work and find the sponsor now.

And how should I justify in the application if i am still not yet a REGISTERED interior designer but my plan is to work as an self-employed interior designer in Canada?

Hello, my husband has new clients from overseas. My husband is the main applicant under this stream. Does he need to update his application everytime new clients are coming in?

Hi everyone,
did anyone make the IELTS exam and put it into the application? I know the program says that it is not required but our immigration agent wants to make it with us. Do you have experience about this? Did you make it? And with which result? our agent told us it is needs to be at least 6 band.
Thank you in advance

Thank you very much.
Do you know for this program what is the minimum band score?
The program says No IELTS needed! But every Immigration agent say it needed. I can agree with it, but wheter what is the minimum score?
Hi there, I don’t think there is and minimum band score stated in the requirement as it just contribute into your overall point during evaluation. Most agent and lawyer would advise to have the test result included as it’s important to have taken the test as a proof of ability in one of the 2 official languages in Canada.
