Re: Citizenship Application Timeline

I took the oath on Friday. For anyone who's curious (Like I was) about the timing, it only took just over an hour. This was at the Vancouver office, so it may be different in other locations. I...

Re: B.C Provincial Nominee Program

This was (Could still be...) a restriction on the Australian working holiday visas, the IEC has always been an open permit.

Re: Citizenship Application Timeline

I've never heard that! I know you are entitled to some time off to vote. I doubt it would be paid, though...

It wouldn't be a problem for me anyway given the industry I work in (tech), but as my...

Re: Wait time for COPR landing @ Service Canada

I waited about a month for a phone call, and then my appointment was the next week. It all went very smoothly.

Re: How long does it take to get overpaid tax back?

You should get a letter from CRA explaining what they adjusted. It's probably in the mail.

Re: My landing experience at CIC Vancouver

I never had the passport request - they were satisfied with what I sent with the original application. I've posted my full time line before, if you go via my profile and search past posts you'll find...

Re: My landing experience at CIC Vancouver

Same for me - a totally different atmosphere than the usual one at the border.

My landing experience at CIC Vancouver

I just landed this afternoon and thought I'd put up a quick post - I know there are loads of these but mine is a little different as I landed at the CIC office in Vancouver (Having been living in...

Re: Job interviews

My record is three phone interviews (30 mins each), and then eight in-person (45 mins each). The in-person ones were all done in the one day, though.

Re: Job interviews

A 5:30pm interview makes a lot of sense to me, if you're currently working it saves you pulling a sickie. (Assuming 9-5 job)

Re: Driving to the USA

I've always been able to pay the $6 by credit card.

On the visa waiver form, the Canadian border officers probably won't automatically take it (As the checkin agent does when you catch a plane),...

Re: Case Processing Pilot Ottawa Timelines- please add your experiences

I think they can be extended, but there's a whole process to go through getting approval to do that, so I'd rather just get it done!

Re: Case Processing Pilot Ottawa Timelines- please add your experiences

I finally heard from CIC last night - it turns out that my COPR was issued in May, but never turned up. (Paid the RPRF and "Decision Made" way back in March). Now I'm hoping I can get the replacement...

Re: How long does it take to get overpaid tax back?

You can call the CRA call centre:

http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/cntct/phn-eng.html

They're fairly helpful but might not have that much information for you.

Re: How long after RPRF paid do you get passport request?

They did the same thing for me. Also CPP-Ottawa.

FWIW, I paid my RPRF at the end of March and am still waiting. Medical will expire in August.

Renewing British Passport while waiting for PR
