Question Damn CIC

My aunt and uncle died in 1992 and 1997 leaving me with just cousins in Canada. Hence I couldn't tick the right boxes on the form. Does anyone think that this might be mitigated by the fact that all my cousins are First Nation residents/citizens ?

JAJ,

the immigration forms allows selection of brother, sister, aunt & uncle etc etc, but as I said, my uncle and aunt died a few years ago. As the relatives are supposed to be living, I couldnt put them down, so in my covering letter I explained that the only living ones are my many many cousins. And I wondered, due to the fact that they are First Nation, whether that would hold any sway. I thought it better to put down, than just say I didnt have anybody over there.

They have to draw a line somewhere my friend.
If it may makes you feel any better then I'll tell you we had an Uncle in Toronto die as we were filling out the application.
Like you we felt we had to put it down with his (former) address but it will count as nothing.
That's life! (Most inappropriate I know!)

I responded to your other thread, but I wanted to ask if you've considered provincial nomination programs? The selection criteria differs from the federal program, and not all require advanced degrees (for example, I think Saskatchewan's program favours skilled agricultural workers).

Good luck,

Jerry in Chicago

Sorry, but cousins won't count at all.

...and neither do your aunt or uncle unless they are your actual blood relative.

What I mean is, for instance, my aunt (father's sister) in NS died, and I was unable to count my uncle (her spouse) as he was not my blood relative.
