Default Documentation

Found the following list of documents that one allegedly needs to include
in the initial app on the web site of some consultants who claim to help
you apply for Canadian immigration correctly. Now, the CIC web site
doesn't say anyhthing about this stuff AFAICT (although I'd imagine I'd be
expected to produce these docs sooner or later). I also found a Google
news story the other night indicating that 90% of apps are rejected for
being incorrectly or incompletely filled out. Now, they don't look that
complicated to *me*...but maybe I'm missing the part where you need the
following docs:

What documents do I need?
Originals must be in English or French or get them translated into English
or French by an accredited translator

* Citizenship card or certificate
* Valid passport or traveling visa for each family member
* Birth certificates for all family members
* Marriage certificates, divorce decrees, death certificates of spouse
* No objection to immigration
* Education degrees
* Letters of references - employment, etc.
* Evidence of sufficient funds
* Letter of clearance to evidence no criminal records
* If you have relatives in Canada, your relatives' Canadian Landed
visas, Canadian passport, Citizenship card, birth certificates, marriage
certificates
* If business applicants, your net worth statements

What's a "citizenship card or certificate" anyway? Does that mean my
Social Security number?

Do they mean an *original* birth certificate? No copies? What about my
university diploma? Does that have to be the original one as well?

What's a "no objection to immigration"? Who might object? Who should I
show doesn't object? President Bush? Damn, I'm screwed.

And the "letter of evidence" to show I'm not a criminal...where exactly do
I get *that*?

The news story I found said that 250 million new apps are expected...so
maybe they're being uber-nitpicky to hack 'n' slash their way through the
thundering herds of wannabe Canadians...? It also said that October is the
"green light" month, in November it will be "Amber" and by December the
Canadian government will probably up the qualification points again. Is
that true? Do I really need to get all this stuff together in two weeks if
I want to apply during the "green light" month?

The CIC web site says you don't need a consultant or immigration lawyer but
I'm beginning to wonder...Thanks for any help...

250 million new apps????? What website are you looking at?

Stop looking around - get appropriate application package (including visa
post specific instruction with checklist) from CIC website for the class you
are about to apply under. All required documents are listed in checklist in
visa post specific instruction.

Those "green, umber" etc. colors need to be put into trash - don't expect
pass mark to go up in December (although anything is possible). It seems
that the consultant's website you are looking at is rather using scare
tactic to get many naive clients as fast as possible and run...

If you will be relying on such websites then you'll end up in those "90%"...

It wasn't a consultant web site (well, not about the 250 mil apps anyway),
that was a google news story from Oman. Although it was an immigration
consultant who was claiming this! Good to know that I don't have just two
weeks to get my s**t together. I was trying to see if there was any
news re the passmark change which is how I found the story. Although I did
later find a consultant's web site which listed all the docs one was
supposed to include with the initial app..

And I didn't question the 250 mil figure, actually, considering how many
people wnat to get the hell out of whatever Third World hole they live in.
I know the U.S. is a lot less attractive to some folks since things have
gotten a mite ugly here post-9/11.
