Hi Everyone,

My application arrived at CIO on the 29th April this year. Has anybody with same or later date received the 120 days intimation?

I have seen people with 15th April date getting news but onward . . . . . .

Looking forward to your kind updates!

Hi - my application was received on April 30 and I have yet to receive the 120-day email/letter.

Coming up to 3 months now, may try and contact them if I don't get anything this week.

Hi Silverdargon,

Thanks for the tip , I added it so lets see if it works !!! ( hhhmmmmm i put it in so where is it ??)

Anyone know how hard it is to get your job offer approved My hubby has been offered work so we may go down the TSW road to get there quicker >> If we do this can we leave our current application as PR in place ??? or should it be withdrawn and a new application submitted from Canada !!!

One more question....Has anyone had a FSW application refused by the CIO in Nova Scotia and if so how long from they received the application till they let you know ??

Would love feedback !!!

Unfortunately our FSW was returned. We submitted in April, but never found out until end of June. Apparently we put my husband's son (who is a not accompanying us) down on the wrong section. We understood that as he would not be coming with us and we have no contact with him we would not need to put him down in the main dependants section. We wouldn't even have been able to provide a recent photo or passport details as hubby hasn't seen him for 3 years. Additionally, they reckon our debit card details we provided did not have 6 months left to run (in fact they had over 7 months at the time, and we had to resubmit new card details as our card was compromised) They then decided to remove hubby's job from the list which has really screwed up now.and we are left wondering what to do and wondering where our lives are now going. Not good!!

Depends on whether you really want to live in Canada or not - if you are not really committed to living in Canada then would just be taking an immigration slot that the Canadian Governement has really allocated based on the best economic interests of Canada.

If I continue once I enter canada how long do o Jace to officially stay there to get pr card and Ssn number etc, can I leave Canada after a month what's the minimum time I have to stay there?

In theory yes - but see above not really why Canada has an immigration process

If I withdraw my application do I get a refund as my documents have already been received by visa office??

In theory yes - send them a case specific email and if they haven't actually begun processing they usually give a refund

Any advise will be appreciated
Hope that helps

Ouch, I'm sorry to hear that. This change has really messed up a lot of people... I'm sure you will be able to find a solution though.

@hopeful2010: Lucky you got in just before the change! Good luck

Hi Ali,

Though not authentic but a senior Immigration Lawyer told me to expect the 120 days intimation somewhere in August; by around the 10th may be. My application arrived one day before yours at CIO on the 29th of April (IT Manager)

The latest letter from CIO has been delivered on an application receive date of 17th per my knowledge. Payments for successful cases have been made around 3-4 weeks prior to the letter receipts. So if we are on track, we should check our payment deductions. I am checking mine as it was through draft from some bank in Canada, please do check yours and share outcomes

Regards

This might interest you.They updated the website yesterday...whether thi info is accurate or not who knows

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/informa...killed-fed.asp

You will see there that the CIC is currently working on applications recieved up to 7 May 2010.

For us who have already submitted our applications and are anxiously waiting for a response from our local office the time lines have increased slightly from what had been published earlier.I would assume that one would start counting from the date they recieved the AOR to determine when their case "might" be finalised
