I'm starting this thread for those who are considering sending in an application under self-employed category in 2019.

Current processing time on CIC website says 21 months.

You can find occupations that fall under self-employed category here - http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre/answer.asp?qnum=291&top=6.

Let's all support each other as we proceed on this journey in 2019...

Hello, can you tell please how did you know when your application was delivered (and signed)?
I sent my application to Sydney, Nova Scotia with the DHL courier on June 22, and the latest update I can see (on DHL website) is for Jun 25: "Delivery arranged no details expected; Location - ONTARIO SERVICE AREA, ON - SYDNEY - CANADA".
Did you know the delivery date when you received your AOR or before that?
Thank you.

Hi,

I had same message and when I asked customer care from DHL, they informed that they do not have DHL delivery arrangement from Ontario. Therefore they will arrange delivery from local postal service.

It usually takes 1 day

Thank you for the helpful information. I just wrote a post that I talked to DHL and that say that per their information my package is in Sydney, NS. But I will also try to contact the Loomis courier service as someone here suggested.

How can someone who mistakenly captured a wrong figure for settlement fund correct such error.
Note : application has been submitted.

I think only way is to raise web specific form or send a letter of explanation to visa office

Hi everyone,

We are applying from India under the category of film producer.

This is our timeline.

18th Sep 2019 Sent application Fedex courier from India to Canada
20th Sep 2019 Application received at Sydney Canada
25th Oct 2019 AOR and biometrics letter received
5th Nov 2019 Biometrics completed and sent.

Haven’t heard anything since then. Does anyone know if India has processed any applications with a similar timeline? The status online shows “Submitted” not “in process”.

Is there anyway we can find out what’s going on?

My timeline
Application Received: August 23, 2019
Biometrics Requested: August 30, 2019
Biometrics Done: September 2, 2019
Medical Requested: February 17, 2020
Medical Passed: February 27, 2020

I'm still waiting for the eligibility and background check. I don't know how long that will take ? But I guess the medical results are only valid for a year , so I hope I can get an answer before it expires.
