Where to show the point calculation? Cover letter ?
I think the CIO office calculate automatically by checking the application where you stand with points, I make a word document with a heading of score single A4 page about my eligibility and score education points/experience points/age points/adaptability points

For those of you who had a spouse and family when you applied, did they consider your spouse's employability at all as far as your fitness to support yourselves in Canada? Or, was it all hinged on your self-employed income?

What is the difference between "Employment income" and "Business income"? Is employment income just a yearly amount that we made (both myself and my spouse I assume, since it asks for amounts and assets belonging to both)? For the past how many years? Business income is maybe total amount earned from the "business" over the years? How many years? It's confusing. We teach music lessons so the whole monetary part is confusing (we don't have invoices or contracts, etc and our business doesn't have a dollar amount worth). Thanks!

Hi, I'm kind of confused about this too. What I stated in our application, which I'm about to submit, is that I do business as a DBA (Doing Business As) instead of under a company name. I am a voice over artist and my husband is a TV director and filmmaker, and we have no registered company. We do business as ourselves. So in the Business Income section of the Accumulation of Funds narrative, I just said to see the section above for my Self-Employment Income, because that is essentially my business income. I hope I'm going about it the correct way. If somebody can shed light on this, we would really appreciate it too.

Hi guys
After a long time finally I got an email

“this is to advise that we will reviewing your file. To ensure that information available is up-to-date, could you please confirm or submit any additional documents within 60 days via your MyCIC account"

I was wondering if anyone got same Email
I’m not sure what kind of updates they exactly want since there is only 4mb space to send my documents.


My time line so far:
  1. We received your application for
  2. permanent residence on June 8, 2018.
  3. We sent you correspondence acknowledging receipt of your application(s) on August 2, 2018.
  4. We started processing your application on August 2, 2018.
  5. asked for for updates on September 30,20

How to appeal if case is rejected
Was your application rejected outright or was it returned for incomplete documents? What does your letter say. If just missing documents, there should be a checklist of what documents are missing. Then you resubmit. The link tells you what to do. If you are using a consultant, they will most likely have to do it.

https://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre/answer.asp?qnum=1492&top=4

If your application was rejected/refused for not being eligible, you can’t appeal blaming the consultant. You are responsible for ensuring that the application is complete and can’t blame a consultant for not sending in all the documents. You can appeal if the visa officer didn’t follow the laws and regulations but not for missing documentation.
