Hi
The interview was done successfully yesterday and they said they are happy with us, then told us to wait for Medical Request. The interview is simple, just to confirm with what we declare in the application. Docyou know how long it take from Medical Request to CoPR?
Wow. Congrats! One step closer to becoming a PR.

Congratulations! :)
Still a few steps to copr (medical pass, passport request if a visa is required) but it will fall into place. Cant tell how long it will take, it depends on your local visa office and, I guess, the pandemic too?
It’s about 1 hours, including time for checking up papers án everything. So the actual interview time is about 45 mins. All questions are about our current biz and our future biz in Canada. I am eagerly waiting for the MR, do you know how long it will take?

Hello,

For this program-
1. does the experience have to be in Self- Employed only? What is someone has 5 years experience as a Fashion designer but working for a company?
2. What documents does one need to provide to prove the experience?

Hi, was your interview online? Or you physically present at the Visa Office?

It really depends on your local visa office and the availability of the panel physicians if your country...

Temporary number sent in January along with UCI. Can we create an online account with that? Or it has no use other than asking questions to the processing team. Thanks.

Same situation here. Received my temporary UCI just last January. We cannot link it to our CIC account, as we need a permanent UCI for that.

Hi all. I see a lot of talk about 'local visa offices'. I applied by sending my application to Sydney in Canada. Does this mean that I'm processed by a Canada office I assume, and local offices mean nothing to me? I'm in the UK.

Timeline is November 2020 applied. AOR (temp) in January 2021. Nothing since.

Normally the file will be sent to a local visa officer for further processing after completeness check.

Sydney is a centralized intake office where the doc will be directed to an LVO I think...

Hello,

Can we apply for Work permit under self-employed program while the PR is processed? Also, any particular refusal reasons?
