Do not mind them, show efforts made to get the reference letter and if you cannot get the reference letter within the time frame given, state it in a Letter of Explanation and attach your employment letter, confirmation (if you have it) and other documents showing that you were employed by the Bank including copies of ID card and/or call cards.

Attach your recent bank statements (where your salary is being deposited), the TBills and accounts that has the funds from the gift deed and submit. The reason i said, it might be bank statement where your salary is being paid is because that was the majority request from some people in the whatsapp group. I think evidence to show payment from the company you claim you work for.

Don't fret, your PPR will fall on you like rain.

Meanwhile what exactly is your AOR, we have a whatsapp group for July aors in London and we have been trying to analyze the dates that are presently being treated.


Thank you and all the best.




Thank you and amen. My AOR was July 12.

Hi House,

We also received an ADR requesting that we provide Height, eye colour, passport data page, bank statement and payslips.

3) However, CIC has asked me to provide reference letters for my bank job and current employment. Also I've been asked to provide the payslip and corresponding bank deposit for the job i claimed point for and my current job. 

4) I have my payslips however for the bank statement for one of my jobs is not available. After i joined the bank, the bank opened accounts for us as staff and closed my former account. I was in the bank branch today and asked to print my statement. I was told that the statement cannot be printed as the account was closed. However, I've sent a mail to the bank to document the situation.
In the event the bank cannot provide me with the statement, I intend to attach the email alerts I got for the times the salary was paid into my account, my mail to the bank and the response received from the bank and an explanation saying that the bank could not provide me with statement.

I'd like to know if there's anyother thing I can add or am missing at the moment. Thank you so much.

3. I don't know why cic will ask for references for a job you aren't claiming points for. Attach as many documents as you can from this job with an explanation that you aren't claiming points for it as you are unable to obtain a reference from the employer.

4. Banks can generate statements for closed accounts but this is usually done by IT not the branch. Insist on your statement at the branch you visited, it is totally possible, just ask them to escalate the request if it is beyond them.

Hi House,

We also received an ADR requesting that we provide Height, eye colour, passport data page, bank statement and payslips.

2) I only claimed points for 1 year work experience which was in HR. Although I worked in a Bank and currently work in a construction firm, I didn't put this in my work history. I only specified it in my personal history. As such no point was awarded for it.

I'd like to know if there's anyother thing I can add or am missing at the moment. Thank you so much.

2. Was you job in your EE profile before you got ITA and then moved it to your personal history? If yes, it is probably necessary in the computation of your eligibility and CRS scores and as such you would need to provide the required references for it.

Hello Seniors,

Sent our passports to Accra on 27th October, got delivered on 30th October by DHL.

I haven't heard from Accra and neither seen any update on MyCIC profile. Was it supposed to take this long?

I need the passports for a family trip in December. I hope we would get the passports back before then?

Kindly share your experiences.

Thanks

Got Approved today.

Thank you guys.

Please answer the following questions if you are comfortable sharing the info.

Visa refusal to Canada, UK or US? And how long ago was this? Did you maintain a degree of consistency with your Applications then and now? And how much has your status changed since then e.g Marriage, extra degree, Travel history?

Thank you, yes I believe they are working on July at the moment as lots of people claimed to receive the ADR on November 20th. Also a friendd who applied in 1st week of July just got his PPR.

AOR is July

The purpose of the statememnts required is what I am unclear about. My POF is my Gift deed and husband's treasury bills investment, and since the jobs they are requesting for does not even give me additional points as I didn't claim it under my work history.


I think that d purpose of d statement may become clear when u read the request in "context".
It could be SOA for the salary of those jobs specified....
It could also be d VO wants to knw what has happened to your POF being that the tbill was 3mnths away frm maturity at d tym u submitted...In this case, u either upload a rolled over tbill along with d SOA, or if it wasnt rolled over, u upload d SOA having d funds....
Let others contribute biko.

Re: Canadian Express Entry/Federal Skilled Workers Program-Connect Here Part 2 by Teds(f): 4:28am On Nov 22, 2017
Thank you so much for the break down, I will wait for my one year experience to complete before I create my profile then.

GlitteringStar:


Lol. smiley


It is not confusing.

Are you an international student? If yes, I believe you must have a full-time status in order to work on or off campus. Read more here. Therefore, this means you cannot gain points for the 2 years work experience because you were not working on a valid work permit.

After you create your profile and fill in your details, you will be eligible for both the Canadian Experience Class (because of your Canadian work experience) and Federal Skilled Worker program. You cannot choose which program you are invited to apply for. The system will determine this based on the information you enter.

The FAQs below can also help to provide answers to your question.

Can I ask to only be considered for one of the programs under Express Entry?

No. Under Express Entry, the system will find which programs you qualify for based on the answers you give in your profile. If you qualify for more than one program, we will decide which one to issue the invitation to apply under. You can choose to decline an invitation to apply if it is not under the program you were interested in. But, if you do this, there is no guarantee that you will be invited again under a different program.

I have been working in Canada for the last six months but didn’t get points for work experience. Why not?

Under the Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), to be awarded points for skilled work experience, you must have been:

legally allowed to work in Canada in one or more jobs listed in Skill Type 0 or Skill Level A or B of the National Occupational Classification;
working full-time (or an equal amount in part-time), meaning 30 hours of work per week

We do not count work experience if you were:

studying full-time while you were working,
not legally allowed to work in Canada.

Can I be eligible for more than one program under Express Entry?

Yes. Depending on the information in your profile, you may be eligible for more than one program through Express Entry. In that case, you will be invited to apply for one program based on this order:

Canadian Experience Class (CEC),
Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), then
Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).

For example:

If you met the criteria for all three programs, the system would send you an invitation to apply for the CEC.
If you met the criteria for CEC and FSWP, you would also get an invitation to apply under the CEC.
If you met the criteria for FSWP and FSTP, you would get an invitation to apply under FSWP.

You can’t choose which program you are invited to apply for. The system will sort profiles based on the information you enter. If you decline the invitation, the system will not re-invite you under the next program. You will go back in the pool, and if we invite you again, the same order will apply.

Who cannot apply for permanent residence under the Canadian Experience Class?

The Canadian Experience Class is for people who already have skilled work experience in Canada. You are not eligible for permanent residence under the Canadian Experience Class if you gained your work experience:

without the proper authorization (for example, illegally, working without a visa),
in a job not classified as skill type 0, or skill level A or B according to the National Occupational Classification,
while you were self-employed, or
while on a student work permit (co-op, off-campus, or on-campus).

Can I count work experience that was part of my education toward the work requirement?

No. Co-op terms and apprenticeships completed before graduating do not count as skilled work experience. They are considered part of an educational program. The work experience you can use to apply for the Canadian Experience Class must not have been gained while studying full time on a student permit (for example, experience gained while on a co-op work term).

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre/questions-answers-by-topic.asp?top=29



Conclusion:
You can only use the one year work experience gained while on a valid work permit. Have you created your profile? I guess not. Note that the CRS tool is used to determine the projected CRS score only. It is the system that will determine your actual CRS score based on the information you enter.

I was a student in the UK, towards the end of my program I wanted to visit Spain , I was denied. Since then my status has changed, I got married, I and my spouse applied for the Us Visa and travelled alone and returned. I also renewed my US visa recently.

My job was not in my EE profile, I was specific to choose just 1 year experience to avoid issues. Since 1 year experience gave me the required point anyways there was no reason to include other jobs that I may have issues getting the required documents. Also it was stated in my LOE that I was claiming points for just 1 year and as a result I didn't provide reference letters for others.

However, under my personal history, I couldn't leave the jobs because those periods I was employeed. Moreover when I renewed my US visa, I stated my employeers details and so chances are that they share intelligence anyways. So to avoid any form of contradicition I simply stated it as it is.
