Default PR approval in just over 1 month ! Well done CIC

Hey guys,

Like many of you I've been looking at this sight for a long time and the information is priceless and has helped hugely, I just wanted to share my experience so far;

I applied under the common law family Category in Oct this year ( met OH who is over here in UK on a work secondment 2 1/2 years ago, we got engaged this summer and just planning wedding in UK next year)we decided to apply for my PR as we didn't know where we want to live after the wedding but figured we'd get the application done to gove us options.
So we completed the application ourselves which I found relatively simple but took a while getting all required infomation together. I guess it helps that we have a pretty straightforward case, no kids yet etc. anyway posted it off and expected to hear nothing for at least 6 months if I was lucky goven all the horror stories on here. Got a note from CIC saying they had received the application and will begin processing on 21st October , slight relief in that they had actually received it but thought this is the beginning of a long draw out process so just put it to the back of my mind.

Last week a got an email saying I needed to post pics and copy of passport to Canadian High Commision in London which I did then today 29th Nov , I've just been granted PR which seems very quick given the 14 month processing time given on cic website for Outland applications from UK , credit to CIC, just over 1 month to approve.

Congrats. Perhaps you might want to have your fire hose handy to put out the flames from posters who might be a bit miffed with your timeline

The speed of this one is astounding. We did see a handful of apps go this fast back when apps were still being held in Mississauga, but I think this is a record for an Ottawa application! In any case, congrats again!

The brown envelope attached to the application might have helped
