Congratulations to everyone that got their desired IELTS score today. Following up on the happy mood, I received my COPR today. Below is the details of my application:

WES: 20th September. (MSc Degree)

IELTS: 23rd September (CLB 10)

EOI Submitted: 24th September (CRS 496)

ITA: 4th October

eAPR: 5th October

Medical Passed: 16th October

BG IP1: 18th October

BG NA2: 31st October

BG IP2: 7th October

PPR: 12th November

Passport sent: 14th November

Passport/COPR received: 24th November.

As suggested by cochtrane. Itemised below is what is peculiar about my application:

1. Proof of funds: I submitted a single-page document following the cic guideline. I know some usually advised to even attach six months SOA. Personally, I think it is unnecessary so long you have a document from your bank drafted according to the cic template. My motto has always been KISS (keep it simple and straightforward). Also, a few threads earlier, someone asked if he/she should explain why the money is in US dollars. Well, my POF was in SFr. and it was fine.

2. Medical Examinations: A couple of days after I submitted my application, I went for medicals even without ITA (I was a bit confident I'd secure ITA at the next draw). During the exam, the panel physician thought I might have inguinal hernia and suggested I see a visceral surgeon. After running a couple of MRIs, the specialist scheduled me for surgery two days later. The operation went well and my health insurance picked up the tab including the medical exam which was kind of nice because the exam was about SFr. 700. The major take away of this point is that surgery (either new or prior) doesn't affect your application (at least in my case) as long as it is not critical.

3. Reference letters: I work at a university so my case was kinda weird. The HR gave me a reference letter that covers pretty much everything required by cic except job description. The HR personnel said they can't give me a reference with job description as they are not directly overseeing me and I should contact my advisor for that. Now the problem is I'm working on several proposals to secure funding for my Post-Doc and didn't want to jeopardise that. Here comes the important part, the LOE. Your LOE is perhaps the single most important document that you have absolute control over. Please use your LOE to your full benefit (even if takes you 100 pages to thoroughly prove the veracity of your claims beyond doubt). e.g. Part of my job description for my NOC includes "publishing findings in scientific journal". So I listed all my publications and provided links to the various online articles.

All in all, please treat all info you get on this thread as "for educational and informational purposes" only as the only official channel (as Canadianfly and other senior members constantly advise) still remains the cic website.

Finally, I can't fail to acknowledge the great efforts of the contributors and the e-friends I have made along the PR journey including (but not limited to) 40manlappy, cochtrane, perks, mummyjaygirls, GlisteringStar, Canadianfly, Hephgirl (I hope she's alright), Algbenguze, einsteino, elfmann, aig84 and numerous others I can't mention.

Thanks and good luck to you all.

Apologies for the long epistle.

She might be able to swing through via PNP, provided she is ready to do the work and find out which provinces she qualifies for their programmes. This link contains a sub link to all the provinces websites. Let her go through each one, narrow down those ones for which she meets their application requirements, put the requirements in place and monitor them for when they will open to accept applications, http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/provincial/apply-who.asp

JustinTrudeau:
And so i visited British Council yesterday bearing fire and brimstone. I was thinking should i just make my grievance known by shouting and spitting fire but on the second thought i was like you want to shout in a foreign mission, see the security man beside you will just package you out now.They won't even respect you that you're one JustinTrudeau, the PM Canada Nairaland division. So i to calm down,make den no mistake me for terrorist.

When the lady met me i said to her,see ehn i don't know where to start but you guys have made my life difficult,pls release my results.I told her i wont leave until a personnel attend to me. She promptly took my details and dashed off.

She came with the assistant IELTS administrator for Lagos and PH, although i've seen them copy the guy in one of the mails.The guy was just apologising that he just got to know about it 2weeks ago and he has been working on it. He said the investigation team has concluded their investigation just for Cambridge to clear me cos they are all test partners. He also mentioned that they are investigating 2 sessions of my results because of the last one i did.He was not certain of the session.I told him they have been making my life very difficult and stagnant and its affecting my psyche.He said he will still go and follow up wit Cambridge.He said he doesn't collect candidates phone number but he will collect mine.I tink the guy felt for me sha.

The guy further mentioned that they hardly get withheld results in Nigeria that he was surprised,i retorted WHY ME

My people,long and short of it is that my results is still with Cambridge.Dont mind my long epistle,i just had to let it out

greater and better things lie ahead PM, this surely will end in Praise. Wish u the best

Austinpee4:

Actually, @blessings2017 is correct. An applicant applies for a study permit and NOT a temporary resident visa(TRV) hence the usage of the IMM1294 form. However, since a TRV is required for a non visa exempt applicant to enable him/her travel to Canada to obtain the study permit that was approved. it is automatically issued once the Study permit application is approved without a separate application.

A temporary resident visa can be applied for directly eg Visiting, business etc. These categories of Temporary resident visas does not require a permit and hence an applicant will have to apply using the IMM5257 form(application for a temporary visa).

So yes, a study permit fall under a 'PERMIT' even though a TRV is also issued.

That's fair enough, we learn something new everyday of course.

Thank you for the heads-up.

Dear Team,

I just started filling my EE EOI profile, I previously filled mid this year, and transmitted but was informed "Profile Ineligible" .


Now in my new Profile I am creating, I was asked to indicate If I had applied to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada before?

Do I answer Yes/No to this considering my first profile was deemed Ineligible.


Also I played with the two option, Choosing Yes ask me to provide UCI (Unique Client Identifier) but wouldnt accept the UCI from the Ineligible Profile(My UCI is like CAN0000...)

Please o
Your LL.B certificate is sufficient as it has same ranking with masters degree. Please don't evaluate your B.L . Do your ECA with IQAS using LL.B certificate. IQAS recognizes our certificate as a first professional university degree in law while WES is a bit blurry in their own recognition hence Lawyers in this forum go for the clearer one to avoid stories that touch.

However, you will still evaluate your credentials with WES should you choose to work with your certificates when you eventually migrate to Canada but then, as one would say, first things first. When we get to that bridge , we go cross am cheesy

Please start from page 0 and read up to familiarise yourself adequately

Sorry for not giving you an update, been quite busy.

I finally received my ECA on the 17th of November and its quite sad that it was evaluated as just a Bachelor’s with the 1yr diploma automatically removed.

I'd probably wait for the completion of my masters programme in a month's time and request for an Update.

Good morning All,

Please can anyone who used ICES as an ECA signify to me?

1. Document Requirement: Based on what I read on the website, they didn't explicitly state that a copy of my degree certificate should be sent, they stated as follows

"In most cases an official transcript is sufficient as long as the completion of the award is noted within. If confirmation of the award is not present in the academic transcript, this information can arrive in letter form from the appropriate authority accompanying the official transcript of records"

Now, in my transcript, there's no confirmation of award but the school will send a clear copy of my degree certificate. So am I required to get the letter they stated above along with my transcript? . . . or is the degree certificate and the transcript all that is required?


2. Document Characteristics: "for a document to be considered official, it must bear proper seals, signatures and postal markings"

Please, what do they mean by postal markings?


Thanks and kind regards.
