Yep. It's been a loooong wait.

Now I've got to get police checks done again (for a country I've not lived in for over 2yrs), and re-submit all the application forms. Daft system.

Rich,

You must have great patience - has it been a complicated case as it would seem that most Jun 05 applicants are at or soon to be at the Meds stage?

Nope - it's a clear cut very straightforward application.

I've actually been in Canada for over 2yrs running a business on a WP, but CHC decided in thier wisdom that as I'm already here, my PR application wasn't considered important enough to progress even at the normal speed.

What's particularly annoying is that as a temp resident, I'm not entitled to many of the tax breaks/small business grants that a PR is entitled to, so have to operate my business at a competitive disadvantage. That's not a healthy situation for our staff, but apparently irrelevant to having the PR application progressed at least on par with everyone else that had AOR around the same time as me. Ho Hum.

Just had to spend $80 in postage/money orders to get updated police checks from the UK carried out. I've not set foot there since July '05, so the whole exercise is pretty pointless, but I guess you just have to roll with the system and not get frustrated by it.

Rich,

I suppose being there takes away some of the pain of waiting. Having said that if it is having an impact on your bottom line then it must be unpalatable knowing that others are much closer to being processed.

I suppose as you say you bite the bullet and get on with it.

Best of luck with progress.

I can beat that, I have received 2 x 90 day letters (second one received 1st Oct 2007 after I had written to query why they had not updated my address on the CIC site). My AOR is 4 November 2004. Hopefully I will hear something in 2008!

Bev,

All I can say is WOW? how can it be so...?

It is so unfair that people like yourself have to wait so much longer than almost everyone else.
