They misplaced my Police Certificate Andrew, so I had to send for a new one. Much to my annoyance. Hope that answers your query?

Thanks for your reply Garry, hope they do not loose anything of ours! Wow that was a long time from forwarding to London to MR! I have heard that because of the Olympics things were slow at the London VO last summer. Most PNP applicants get their MR around 2-3 months after AOR from Sydney, so here's hoping

Good luck

Regards

Andrew

I am sure it will go quicker for you mate, I hope so anyway. I also heard that things slowed down due to the Olympics and Paralympics, but I have it now, so I'll enjoy a nice Spring and Summer in Canada, before I have to embrace the winter lol.

I'll learn how to skate n ski I suppose

I also think there's a "time of year" factor. Those hitting PPR at the end of the year when the quota runs out will take longer.

Tony_tiger last year was 4-5 months done and dusted, if there is a snag with medicals it seems to add another 6 months to the whole process.

I have been looking at another expat forum, some of the Pakistani applicants are getting MR from London 6 weeks after AOR?

Things my end are good. Ive just been so busy. I started work with TD bank in mid november. I got interviewed there and then and called back for a second interview when I went to a careers open day a few days after I landed. I got a exam on Monday, so just studying for that. Other than that im just saving, hopefully I should have enough for a deposit for a apartment/townhouse by the end of the year.
Its such a contrast to being back home in London. I was unemployed for over a year. No jobs and no prospects. After all the hard work of taking the risk and finances going pear shaped. It looks like its paying off.

Its not nice when things are not going well at work and to be stressed, I really hope that you feel well again soon .

Keep focused and positive, youre nearly there, just a little bit longer to go so dont give up yet .

We wont be going anywhere for a little while yet.... I want to make sure that I have everything sorted here before leaving, so, we could all be landing around the same time - stranger things have happened!!!

I just heard of someone who had meds in January (or might have been late December) who has just got PPR.

This should bring hope for the new applicants.

I feel very ungracious, but I'm at the point of giving up completely. There is no sense in this at all. How can someone who has just had meds be given PPR ahead of those who had meds over 6 months ago?

Sorry, I would prefer to be more constructive than this, but am at this moment just bitterly upset.

Hi Kaye, I feel your pain. It does not make sense at all. I suppose we just have to sit it out for now. I had a call from someone at CIIP today. They wanted me to go to London for 2 days and have my CIIP course. My OH has done the online course. It is difficult for me to attend the course which is next week as its a 3 hour drive each way for me and its an all day course for both days. I do not have much encouragement to go to the course due to us being delayed for so long. I really hope we get some good news soon!

I hope this does not drag out over the Easter period. We just can't make any plans until we know for certain that we can Immigrate and stay in Canada permanently

We felt very positive back in July 2012 when we had our medicals, but now we do not

Kaye I feel for you and I would be exactly the same if I were or am in your position this time next year, who was it if you don't mind me asking? I know that applicants who have pre arranged employment or have close family are processed faster, as having a job to go to means that CIC are enhancing the economy etc. If you have close family already living there, less background checks to conduct so less time spent on the application, don't give up now, after all you have been through. If you do in years to come you will only ask yourself the question "What if" you are nearly there so hang on in there, it will all be worth it in the end, and as I said to Andrew, this time next year it will all be a bad dream.

Mate don't think I will be going to the CIIP course either, I have been to Canada enough times (24) to know exactly what is in store. If you don't go will it be another excuse to delay your COPR? I wonder if London VO monitor this website? I would expect that they do?

Speedy processing to all

Hi Mate, as far as we are both aware from what the leaflet and emails have stated, plus after chatting with the course organisers, the course is voluntary. My OH has already done the course. I don't see how immigration would penalise you for not attending a voluntary course.

Can you imagine how many people may have left, before being invited to the course and before getting PR like yourself?,

Positive vibes are called for here

So sorry to hear you are at such a low point Kaye. It is very difficult waiting, not knowing and hoping to hear something especially so close to the end. Hang on in there if you can because giving up at this stage would make no difference at all to be honest as that final result is going to come one way or the other .

If at all possible try and take some time out and give yourself a well deserved break from thinking about it all. Everyones case is so individual it makes it impossible to even wonder about as there are too many unknown variables. I really hope you feel better and get some positive news soon

Thanks guys.

I guess I am at a really low ebb at the moment anyway, and it was just one more thing. We had a death in the family just yesterday morning, I got moved out of a job I loved at work into a job I hate, the car broke down again, the computer blew up, the savings are dripping away day by day, flight prices rising.... and more.

Each day I wake up and "today must be the day" and it isn't. And then to hear someone so far "behind us" reaching the end make me realise just how bad I'm feeling right now, when I can't even be happy for people any more (other than those who have waited as long as we have of course).

Andrew, there doesn't seem to be any reason that I know of for such speedy processing (which is positive news for the recent applicants, I think).

Vettemaster - no-one has contacted us about CIIP, and we didn't sign up for it (we did something similar with Nova Scotia) Makes me wonder if we are about to be rejected (now I really am getting paranoid).

Hey Drew, here's an official link regarding CIIP. It is the Indian site though : ) http://www.canadainternational.gc.ca...ang=eng&view=d
