Hello there,

InshAllah I am going to marry in one and a half month, regarding my EE profile and OINP application, I have following questions;

After marriage should I immediately update my EE profile? I mean in day or two? (because i am showing Spouse’s qualification and her ECA and IELTS are yet to done)
Do I need Spouse’s IELTS & ECA at the time when I update my EE profile? (If I do not immediately get just after marriage, then what to do?)
What documents OINP require to incorporate Spouse in file under process?


Thanks & Regards,
Saad
Post marriage, you need to do the following.

1. Update your Express Entry profile once you have the Marriage Certificate (you need to mention your spouse's name and also confirm whether she would be accompanying you to Canada or not)
2. Update the amount of funds as per LICO, it should not be less than CAD 15,143 (please do not miss this step, otherwise, it will make your profile ineligible)
2. You must complete the Change of Personal Information Form. This form can be downloaded from the OINP website. Completed forms should be submitted to OINP by mail, fax or email attachment. http://www.ontarioimmigration.ca/en/pnp/OI_PNPFORMS.html
3. Along with the Change of Personal Information Form, you need to send the following
- Updated POF (CAD 15,143 or more)
- Copy of Marriage Certificate
- Copy of spouse's passport (personal pages)
4. With regard to ECA and IELTS for spouse, it is optional. If you want to claim points, you can get it done and update it later as and when it is ready (before ITA).

Yes, you can transfer the amount to one bank account. You can update OINP via IRCC Web Form (https://secure.cic.gc.ca/enquiries-renseignements/canada-case-cas-eng.aspx) along with proof of transfer and the reason for transfer (LOE), attach the letter you received from the bank that is winding up operations. In the IRCC Web From, you can select the type as 'Express Entry'.
Thanks Stanlee for response.

Hi,

We got our PR, Wanted to check a few things -

1. Can we do a 2 week trip to get our PR Card as we would need more time to figure stuff about moving
2. What is the procedure to get a PR Card
3. Is there a specific city where we need to land in, or can we land anywhere in Canada as its not a regional nomination.
4. How many days does it take to get PR ?
5. What is the process after we land, do we immediately go to the embassy or are all formalities done at the airport ?
6. Is the Immigrant stamp on the passport enough to land or do we need more documents (from a Visa point of view)
7. How long does the documentation take in Canada, do we need to do multiple rounds of the embassy, or does all the work get done in a days time?
8. Do we have to pay any more money at the time of applying for the PR Card ?
9. How long do they take to send the PR card to the registered address ?
10. If both the principal applicant and the spouse are entering the country at the same time, do they get the PR cards also at the same time ? Is there a separate process for the PA and the spouse ?

Please also share experiences if any of people already in Canada. Thanks!

Hi Asivad and Gurus,

Please can anyone explain to me how short landing works? I have provided my UPS mail box address to IRCC via the online Change of Address form, but no response yet from them. I have one more week before leaving. I would also like to know if there is anything else I have to do before leaving? Thank you.

On an average, the time taken to get your PR card is 2-3 months, till then you have COPR. An immigration officer at the port of entry or a CIC office signs and dates this document when permanent residence is finally granted. Permanent residents use this document to show to provincial and territorial organizations to access services.

If you do not have a PR Card and you want to travel outside Canada, then you need to apply for Permanent Resident Travel Document (PRTD). Check this link to know more about PRTD http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/travel-document/

Hi Asivad Anac and Seniors

Is it possible to apply for multiple PNP programs, such as SINP, OINP, Quebec, etc at the same time?

If yes, then should it be under one EE profile? or, should I create multiple EE profiles for each PNP?

If not possible, then what will happen if do it? Will CIC keep one and ignore the others? or, will I I be asked to choose one?


Please advise and thanks in advance.

Thank you so much for your help.

You can apply for multiple PNPs using your same EE profile. However, please note that some PNPs have reservations of an applicant applying to multiple provinces, so you need to check their specific requirements. Please note, even though you can apply to multiple provinces and you get nominated by more than one province, you can only accept nomination from a single province.

Hello all,

I am in the process of applying for Express Entry. I need to know regarding Police Clearance Certificate, whether PCC is required for all the family members or only the ones who are applying for Express Entry.

Hi Asivad Anac,
I just received my gcms notes on friday, it says proof of funds submitted by PA appears to not meet requirements as per R76(1)(b).A11.2: Appears met. R75(2) FSW MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS- Appears met R76(1)(a) SELECTION CRITERIA- FSW POINTS: appears met. In the end it says PA has previous employment in Canada. Settlement funds approx CAD 5,297. Family of 1 requires CAD 12,164
I am CEC INLAND BUT NO LMIA, but I have two years of canadian full-time work experience. Should I send them a LOE with an updated bank statement of 12,164. Please guide me.

Are you currently working or authorized to work in Canada? If not then you will have to show the required funds. If that is the case, upload new POF which meets the LICO at the earliest.

Yes I am currently working with the same company and I have valid post graduation work permit:
This is what the requirement states 'Unless you are currently authorized to work in Canada and have a valid job offer from an employer in Canada, or you have been invited to apply under the Canadian Experience Class, you must show that you have enough money to support yourself and your family after you get to Canada.' I believe that you have been invited to apply under Canadian Experience Class and in that case you do not have to show any funds.
