OK, here we go, brand new for 2016. I thought we could use a new thread to use for Canadian apps or others that get processed through Ottawa, to replace the old 2011 thread that started as a question.

Questions, answers, tips, tricks, complaints about the snow, post it all here.

My wife is the applicant in my case. She applied online in October 2015 and included her medical and Police check with the other documents uploaded.

For anyone wondering about Police Check in Canada the check we require is a Certified Police Check. I called the RCMP detachment in Calgary and the officer told me there are no longer many local Police Services that do the fingerprinting required for a Certified Police Check. Calgary Police Service does NOT do the certified police check (with Fingerprints). He referred a few private companies that do that. We paid the same amount listed on the RCMP site at one of those 3rd party companies. Takes just a few days for the check but a few weeks for the document to get mailed out.

This may not be the case in every city/town. Best to call your local detachment and ask.

Archieco, are you a PR in Canada and hold a Philippine passport?

If so, where does your app get processed?

I have asked this before but has anyone applying from Canada started looking at moving companies? Any tips on what to ask for, what to avoid etc?

Well just going on what I've seen others post when they get asked for additional info or medicals after that long a wait, it usually seems like it's a few days to a few weeks. I saw some people say they got the grant email the same day they submitted what was asked for.

We applied May 6th 2015
Medical and police clearance requested November 27th
Medical and police clearance applied for December 4th
Medical received by the department December 14th

We are still awaiting the police clearance as there was a mistake made with our return address and it took forever to change it. Have spoken to our CO and as soon as they receive it she will make her decision.
Hopefully not too much longer!

My wife lodged her application for a 309/100 partner visa in Canada in early January 2015. In April 2015, we received a request for more information, including medical and police checks, and provided the requested information promptly. We have heard nothing since then. Has anyone else been waiting 12+ months for a 309/100 visa? Thanks

Hi there,

Does anyone know what are the documents/personal information I can access thru Private Act Canada? I have a problem getting PCC in UAE, my first request didn't returned back and since I have no one to help me get one, my CO told me to just request a copy of my previous UAE PCC from CIC Canada which I submitted when I was applying to migrate here. I already requested online but wasn't sure if the document I need can be accessed, I don't want to wait for 30 days processing just to know I can't. Please help, I'm getting frustrated :(
