Default Processing Time - PR

Hi

How long is the processing time for skilled-based Independent migration on the points system (Permanent Residency) for Canada?. I hear varied reports of months to years. I do not have a job lined up?, but do have enough points.

Also, I am a qualified and experiences teacher and also qualfied and been working in Careers Advising with UK quals and experience. Are there any other Careers Advisers out there holding the QCG / DipCG who have gone from the UK to Canada?.....

Was it easy to find work?, any good job websites? etc etc.

Thanks

Gordo

if you're talking about the Skilled Worker Application (without job offer) I believe you could be looking at anything between three and four years!!

Waoh, I can see how encouraging that is to well-qualified, and experienced people? Maybe get a job in a puppet factory? (aka the World Arse.....ociation of politicians).

ho ho ho

More like 4 + without a job.

Tip - get a job on a work permit to bolster your application.

Much, much longer. Current AOR's from CHC London say not to expect any contact for at least 49 months. After that time, once case gets up in the queue applicant will be asked for full application package with all supporting evidence and will be given 4 months to do so. Then another 4 to 6 months for assessment, background, security and medical checks. So, it will be at least 5 years all together, providing that processing times won't get longer in the meantime....

Laugh all you want...

It is your problem, not Canada's. Canada now prefers applicants (well qualified and experienced) with arranged employment in skilled occupations, not PhD's who will deliver pizzas or drive taxis... and so far number of applications with arranged employment is sufficient to take all available visa quotas. Sorry to be brutal here, but seems you need some touch of reality.

If you are so qualified and experienced then you need one more thing - adaptability. This means you must be able to find arranged employment in Canada. If you can't find one under current extreme shortage of skilled workers in Canada then maybe your skills are not needed and/or you just don't have what it takes (and what others who found arranged employment have).....

Thanks for the replies

To the lovely, gorgeous and grumble bum who sugeests get a dose of reality, I suggest you maybe get yourself booked in for your sense of humour by-pass? I was only having a joke, like we do in the NW of England.

No worries

I think you'll find that's a sense of humour transplant! a by-pass will not cure the deficiency.

But I do agree with Andrew, I too am a skilled worker who looked back in 2002 to apply for PR here but was put off by the waiting times (2 years). I looked again in 2006 and it had gotten far worse (5 years), I opted to go LMO/WP/PNP/PR which expedites the whole process (6-18 months). If you are serious about coming here and have the talent why not look at the WP option. there are numerous post on the issue.

What I like about Andrew, Gordo Marshall, is that you'll get the answers to your questions from him if you ask. People normally pay him good money for that out of Cycberspace too. He is great like that. He'll give you no nonsense answers and be frank about things but when it comes to moving over here you have to take a serious stance to an extent and I believe that is all Andrew tries to get people to take on board. It aint easy and it aint quick. I think some one should start the "Andrew Fan club" thread. LOL!
