This is the bit I don't understand:

"This procedure is limited to situations where the final decision of an officer is pending due only to the expiration of a medical certificate. If anything else is pending, the officer should not use this procedure."

That to me reads that it is only if the IO is still reviewing the meds. We are presuming our meds are now ok and it is the background checks that are pending.

Though this seems to contradict the way I read it...

"The process applies to cases where a final decision of an officer is pending only due to the expiration of a medical certificate OR when the validity of the medical certificate is about to expire and the applicant is unable to land before it expires."

Sorry Kaye can't help, it makes no sense to me. Lots of Canadian bureaucracy is not in laymen's terms and is open to interpretation, quite possibly intentionally, meaning decisions could be based on the IO own opinion and experience, not sure if this is a good thing or bad?

Oh, I shouldn't laugh really, but this does seem to be often the way it is. One sentence seems to contradict another. Oh well....

I've PM'd you.

What it means is that everything on the application is complete and CIC/CHC could send out the COPR that day, except that the medical is due to expire in the meantime or has expired. So rather than send out new medical requests, the VO can request that the medical be extended. Now remember, not every VO has read the OB or can be bothered to request an extension, they would just send out a re-medical.

Thanks for the Plain English translation, PMM!

Sounds like the British Civil Service. Not everyone has read the latest circular.

PPR - I think I'm going to throw up with the excitement!



(Was actually sent 31 December, but hey, what's 5 weeks when you're stressed to the hilt! - so happy, I can't even bring myself to whinge about lost emails. Everything in the garden is just rosy!)

Kaye, I am very excited for you. This is very good news. I think you needed this badly What is the plan of action now?

I wonder what caused the delay of receiving the PPR? was it normal post?

Hi there, still trying to make sense of all of this. But can someone tell me if you want to apply for PNP can you apply through the Sydney office to move things along faster as I have noticed on some of the timelines that applications have been sent to Sydney. Help!!!!!!!!!

Hi again guys,
can somebody please tell me, if I can manage to get a job offer, an LMO and enter Canada on a TWP would I still have to apply for permanent residency of some sort. And do you think PNP would be the most effective way to do this or not? Really becoming more confused by the minute. I want to apply for the most suitable and quickest way to become a permanent resident.

Wow!!!! Thats amazing news!!! Am very happy for you . You can finally make some solid plans and get moving. Are you going to drop off and pick up in London or post it? If you drop it off you could go tomorrow as its a Thursday afternoon time and then pick up in two weeks - that is assuming you have been given that option????

I bet there will be lost of celebrations in your house tonight
