Hello, guys! We got approved today!
Though we do have a pending FSE app submitted last 2020, we got tired of waiting so my husband and I decided to apply via the Student Pathway (I am the student and my husband has an OWP). Submitted our online application last Jan. 2022 and got approved, with PPR, just today. We did our medicals last March 2 and we passed the exams one at a time--daughter first, then me and husband, then eldest son, and a day after that, our youngest son. The very next day (that's today, March 16), we got our approval. We will be waiting for our FSE PR approval once we are in Canada.
There is hope yet, so don't give up! If you ever want to explore another pathway to Canada, you might want to consider becoming an international student. God bless everyone!
