2. Think in London CHC shoes. The posted processing time for 80% of PNP applications is 23 months. So you can see how annoyed they can get with monthly requests for updates when the applicant is nowhere near the processing time line.
3. You have paid for processing, thats it. Compare the $550 to what you pay for the same processing service for the UK.

I sent an email to the London VO last month ref processing times for PNP applications. I pointed out that the Canadian High Commission (London) website stated 6 months processing time but the CIC website stated 23 months, I asked which was correct. The reply from London stated that the processing time for PNP applications was 6 months?

I would put being rude to the person processing your immigration application on a par with being rude to your tattooist, hairdresser or any medical professional approaching you wearing a pair of rubber gloves. Not recommended.

I have seen that too. Now maths isn't my strong point, but the 23 months refers to 80% of applications processed within this time and the 6 months refers to average processing time which are surely two different things?

6 months average means some are processed faster than 6 months and some slower. Anyone heard of anyone being processed faster than 6 months? We're around 7 months from submitting to London VO and haven't had PPR yet.

Tony tiger was processed in 4 months, however he went to Alberta and apparently Alberta PNP applicants are priority?

Hi Andrew, This is what is confusing One government website showing one average processing time and the other nearly 4 times longer? PMM states 23 months from his source and London website states 6 months average. Our E-CAS has never been updated since April 2012 and our medicals were received by London on the 11th of July? We would be a lot happier if at least something was updated via E-CAS

Hi i can only speculate that they have indeed run out of visa quota for 2012, there is no other logical explanation. The 23 month average processing time also includes applicants from other countries who are processed via London, so that maybe where the average time adds up, its seems pretty quick (apart from you and a couple of others) if you are UK resident. Hope you get an update soon, seems unfair that your application is dragging on while others (Well done) have seemingly breezed through the process? I hope the new year brings with it a more efficient and expedited process!Hope you hear something soon.

Merry Xmas

Andrew

Hi, We were aware they had 4 streams as we are applying under the Strategic Initiative stream. We just thought they had as much priority as other Provinces

Hi, thanks but we all know this as most here have completed the process in one of those streams. What we are trying to debate is whether successful candidates from other provinces PNP schemes are of a greater priority than any of the MPNP streams when it comes to applying to CIC for PR.

Hello vettemaster, Alberta probably has much priority than other provinces bacuse of Minister Kenny . But come to think of it, the provincial streams should be accorded it priority it deserve since the provincial governments signed an immigration contract with the Federal which should be treated fairly and on time.

Andrew, want to believe the MPNP streams might be a visa specific issue. I know of someone who applied to CIO, Nova Scotia in April 2012 and her visa office is Accra, Ghana, she received her PR visa just this Monday(26-Nov-2012).

The posted times for the 12 months period to June/12 for London on Open Data shows the following processing times for PNP.

20% 30% 50% 70% 80%
