Tell me about it, just a couple of weeks after medicals sent, wasn't expecting anything for 3 - 6 months. Again total randomness with processing times (not that I'm complaining ).

Planning on moving out around April/May time.

Be aware that you need to send another 2 'Canadian spec' passport photo's, maybe worth getting these done up front?

You won't be long I'm sure.

Thanks for all the nice comments everyone...

STC - you heard anything yet??

Cheers,

Stuart.

We sold approx 18 months ago and been in rented since, so have cash in various investments earning a max of 3% interest

We couldn't have timed things worst, sold at the bottom of the market, invested a chunk in the stock market which is showing a small loss and the exchange rate has gone from $2 to $1.55!!

We still made good money on the purchase price though and had worked hard to pay off the majority of the mortgage (once the kids had left nursery we pumped that money into the mortgage, it made a massive difference on the term and if I remember rightly reduced from 19 years to 7).

So after all costs we should still have approx $520k.

Good luck with the house sale, Xmas time is never good, things will hopefully pick up over the next month or 2.

What great news to start the new year! Now you can really start the planning. What's surprising is that CIC actually did some work over the christmas/New year period!

I wonder if it's worth you dropping a note - as a reminder that you haven't heard..? I know it clogs the system up but it worked for me! Just a thought...
Hey
I just did this now..
Haven't been on the site for a while but good to see things are picking up!!

Let us know if you get any feedback.

I too have sent a query today. I think i was eligible. You have to have exceeded the average processing time which is 13 months for those applying between November 28, 2008 and June 25, 2010. It also said based on a complete application package. I have taken my date that i provided all paperwork which means i am at 16 months in (18 from first submission -feels like longer though).

Link to processing times:
