  1. This is a bit of a PSA that IRCC has a whole host of your most frequently asked questions already answered online. I have made a small selection below, but I encourage anyone who is looking for answers to browse their pages. There is far more information available than can be contained in this post!

    This is all information directly from IRCC. I am not answering these questions myself. Thank you. :)

  5. Hello everyone

    Just wondering if will it be a problem if my COPR had an error on the birthday of my daughter? I am currently in Canada now arrived last year,and I am planning to get my daughter soon but as I checked my COPR, the birthday of my daughter is incorrect. She was listed in my COPR as non-accompanying dependent just that her birthdate is wrong entry... I want to know what to do before processing her visa
