If you didn't get any reply within 48 to 72 hours it means that either your
email never reached me or mine email never got your inbox. Please send it
again.

Default Re: FAO Andrew Miller (Pre-IRPA Common-law H&C Applications)

Again, here is the recent memo from CIC dealing with H&C applications
still being processed. Note that they are to continue to be processed
under the old rules. There are no "points" to consider, because they
are "family class-like aplications whose purpose is family
reunification". This "mostly" applies to same-sex relationships, but
equally to opposite sex common-law relationships pre-IRPA.

"Date: March 18, 2003
Author: Marian Hoffman
Category: Procedures
Subject: Clarification -> Family Class Transition OM

The purpose of this message is to clarify Section G of the OM on
Transition Instructions for Family Issues (2002-56). This
clarification applies in particular to the paragraphs of Section G
which deal with H&C applications made by common-law partners (mostly
same-sex relationships) in Canada and at visa offices.

The OM states that there are no provisions to convert H&C applications
into Family Class and that officers should process these cases on the
basis of the original application. The OM also states that if
applicants want to benefit from IRPA provisions (e.g., medical
exemption for a sponsor's partner), the applicant should withdraw
their H&C application and re-apply as a member of the Family Class.

This means that the public policy of June 1994 (Telex ORD0150) for
addressing same-sex/common-law relationships is still in effect for
applicants who applied before June 28, 2002. This public policy
permitted a foreign born same-sex partner of a Canadian or permanent
resident to apply as an independent immigrant (ND2) with H&C
consideration based on the relationship, as family class was not an
option under the old Act.

It has come to our attention that some of these applicants have been
asked to submit new skilled worker applications and to submit
documentation to demonstrate that they meet the new skilled worker
requirements under IRPA. These requests make no reference to the H&C
application or to the existence of the relationship on which the
application was based.

The intention of the Family Class Transition OM was that these
applicants should continue to be processed under the 1994 pre-IRPA
public policy for same-sex/common-law couples, not under IRPA. Thus,
the rules for skilled workers whose applications were received before
January 1, 2002 should not be applied to these cases. Instead,
officers should assess the applications already submitted by these
applicants and should not request that they re-apply using the IRPA
skilled worker forms. These are family class-like applications whose
purpose is family reunification, and they should be processed
accordingly.

We will inform clients through the Call Centres, the CIC web-site,
LEGIT (Lesbian and Gay Immigration Task Force), the CBA and the
IPOOPWG (Immigration Practitioner Operations and Operational Policy
Working Group) that they should get in touch with their visa office if
they have already received instructions to re-apply using the IRPA
skilled worker forms. Clients should identify that they fall under
the 1994 pre-IRPA public policy for same-sex/common-law partners and
provide their file numbers, so that a decision can be made on the
basis of their original application."

Then email it again and please indicate that it is coming from "Dogman" -
this way I can see if I may have already replied to it but you just didn't
