okechukwu101:Bro, For those that are forwarding petitions, i think it is right they use their actual email address which they filled in their various visa applications to forward those mail (as they wish) so that their petitions could easily be identified and treated.

The day I applied for the visa, the processing time was 10 weeks, it's now 15 weeks, probably they think it's easy to move to another country within 1 week and settle down. I literally paused my life for months but I canceled my Canadian visa application and requested a refund a week ago. I got my U.S. visa approved on Monday.
I'm divergent in nature and I also have to protect my dignity. I will not pay processing fee just to be subjected to this biased and inhumane treatment. I have many things to say but one of the many things I find appalling is that they provide status update to many other countries within days or few weeks but keep us waiting forever as if we don't have any reasonable thing to do with our lives, yet we keep paying for this gullible treatment.
If you think all they are just doing is scrutinize application, you are wrong. Their main objective is to apply what is called Social Engineering, they are applying social and human control into the approval or denial process, that's why you will see some applicant who waited 20 weeks get denied with silly reasons like "Purpose of visit".
They need to treat all applicant with respect and dignity. I support those that have also contacted the Canadian immigration minister, I have also bitterly and constructively gave them a piece of my mind. Let's all speak up when we see injustice, by doing that, we are helping future applicants.
Good luck everyone.

travy:Bro!!!!! u are too much. U are the paddy man have been searching for. You are a correct man. You v spoken my mind. Please let some peeps who don't understand these CIC treatment know wats going on. Can u imagine?
|Re: Travelling To Canada Part 10 by Infinity2020: 12:40pm On Aug 19, 2016|
Your assertion is baseless. I am going for Masters (Thesis-based) in Civil Engineering. With a full funding/scholarship and my application is 17 weeks. I haven't been called for medical yet. Stop saying that it is PGD/PGC that is treated unfairly. There are many masters students that haven't gotten their TRV yet. Most of them are not on nairaland. Please do your research well before you come here to make a baseless claim. Stop complicating issues and put your hope on God. Each person case is different in the eye of the VOs. We should pray for grace. It is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy (Rom 9:16).

Just because we are Nigerians doesn't make us deserve shit treatment from CIC
|Re: Travelling To Canada Part 10 by Nobody: 12:44pm On Aug 19, 2016|
My prayer is that we all get approved.
|Re: Travelling To Canada Part 10 by okechukwu101: 12:46pm On Aug 19, 2016|
Infinity2020:Oga, I believe most peeps here are spiritual people. It is glaring that the CIC process is generally inconsistent for us Nigerians and it is now far from being a case by case issue. What is not ideal, is not ideal. CIC is not being fair and just here.

|Re: Travelling To Canada Part 10 by Ethan45(m): 1:09pm On Aug 19, 2016|
Please how did you cancel your Canadian visa application nd hw did you also apply for the refund. Seriously these people are getting on my last nerve. I cant stomach the fact that i would wait for 15 whole weeks again for this people to reply me when am not certain about there response. Abeg life is too short, i neva born pikin neither am i married, so becos i want to pursue a proffesional degree abroad thats why these people are toying with my youth. Am not getting any younger, its high time i gas to step up my game. Haba its very painful. When we apply for visa, they shud tell us yes or no let us continue with our life nd not wait for all eternity when a male bull will begin to lactate. U.s is better after your app you book your appointment nd know your faith that very minute, but canny lawd hv mercy.
I can see vfs is asking for another stomping by naija applicants this year nd this time Am telling you.

The Tension here is fever pitch. The lesson to be learned here is that nobody should keep all their eggs in CIC's basket...they obviously do not take these applications nearly as urgent or as importantly as we perceive they should. Stop paying advance tuition (being overly invested financially) and apply for alternatives (SA, USA, Australia etc)...spread opportunities rather than waiting on these guys for weeks unending. For paper applicants, let's stop submitting our passports on the reason for needing to use it during their infinity visa processing period...if they have visa to give, let them ask for it.
UK universities have started to come on radio to advertise their schools, listened to Coventry uni this morning asking people to still come apply for next month's semester. they recognize this country is a big market and patronage is in a free fall because of the exchange rate and unaccommodating immigration options for international students.
I doubt if the mails you're all ending would make any difference. They most likely wouldn't even be read by him. And frankly, we are non Canadians outside Canadian territories, how is your headache his headache? Got a problem with the processing time, first email them, if nothing then drag 'em out and confront in public on twitterr and FB...they have accounts I should assume. Tag as many associated institutions and parastatals. If they are going to take a piss, our 55k gives us the licence to make it messy!

okechukwu101:some people are acting to be civil,if i tender some many comparison of facts btwn some good Intelligent applicants of PGC application refused and their GCMS NOTE reasons and some masters profile that have been approved i see here.i will always be diplomatic and antagonistic that some good applications of PGC(D) are treated unjust with compounded meaningless inexcusable excuses.mbok!

|Re: Travelling To Canada Part 10 by travy: 3:18pm On Aug 19, 2016|
You should be able to request a tuition refund anytime before resumption date. I contacted the school that my visa application has not been processed and that I don't want to defer. They told me I can get a full refund with no admin charge since my visa application has not been processed but that I should provide them with a screenshot of my online application page.
I took a screenshot of the page showing the status of the visa application as "Open". They sent me a wire transfer form, I filled it and they said it will take 4 to 6 weeks to process my full refund.
Details on how to get visa processing fee refund from CIC: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre/answer.asp?qnum=619&top=4
I contact CIC through this page: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/contacts/web-form.asp and I selected "Type of application/enquiry" as "Withdrawal of online application" and In "Your enquiry" I stated that I have decided to withdraw my application and that I want a refund of processing fee. They replied back saying they have added a note to my application but that the refund is at the discretion of the visa officer. Based on what I read online, if your application has not been processed, you are entitled to a refund.
Please note: Your mileage may vary and I'm not encouraging anyone to lose hope, hope isn't lost.
- Let CIC know what they are doing wrong through this page: https://secure.cic.gc.ca/feedback-retroaction/feedback-retroaction-eng.aspx
- Send a case enquiry by requesting them to urgently look into processing your application, that school is about to resume through this page: https://secure.cic.gc.ca/enquiries-renseignements/confirmation-eng.aspx
- Wait for CIC to respond.
- If you noticed that you will not be able to meet resumption date, you can defer your admission to January.
My advise for anyone applying to study in Canada is to be aware that it can take months to process your application and if you are not comfortable with waiting that long, you should also have a "Plan B" in another country. Probably in U.S, Australia or U.K so as not to waste time and leave your future hanging.
Never give up, good news will come your way.
Wishing everyone all the best.
