Default 5 months to get AEO!

Hi my employer rang up this morning about getting an AEO for me and was told that it would take approx 5 months as they are so behind, they are still processing applications from March. Is this everybody's experience of getting an AEO? Can't believe it takes that long before I even get to apply for PR...

Thats about right, since all AEOs are processed at one office, St. John and with the changes in the Immigration regulations, AEOs have become very popular.

Thanks you for your reply, can I ask, if bearing in mind thetime it takes to get an AEO, whether it would be quicker to go for AINP instead. Does AINP still require an AEO?? I am currently working in Canada, have a permenant offer of employemnt and my job falls into the O skills catgory?

Any advice much appreciated as always.
Thanks

I doubt it, assuming you apply under the Employer stream, 11 months and under the Trades and Engineering Occupations it will be at least 6 months for a decsion. Then there is the Federal process, which is anywhere from 4-11 months depending if you apply to London or Buffalo.

It is very true, I applied for AEO in March got a reply from Service Canada that it will take 18 to 20 weeks but as of now nothing has come so far, i have applied from India.

Can you please help me with my query as well which I posted today.

Regards,

Lily
