To be safe, answer yes to the medical question and explain in the space under that you do not consider his condition to be serious and you believe it would not burden their health system. But you would like to be entirely honest and disclose. If you have medical reports from specialists upload as well. You can also submit it to the panel physician during medical exams, although that might not be necessary since the physician would give his own report acceptable to CIC.

CIC would use their discretion. If during medicals, they decide it is not a serious case, you would still pass medicals despite answering yes to that question. I answered yes in mine as I thought my health issue would be serious but I still passed.

[b]CONGRATULATIONS on your PPR fruitybranch007!

I wish you and your family great success in your new homeland!

Please, I am about to submit my application and my son had a birth injury (called ERB's palsy) at birth, which affected the nerves to his left arm and makes it difficult for him to raise it as high as his right arm. He requires occasional physiotherapy to strengthen some of his left shoulder muscles. Otherwise, he is healthy in every other regard.

Please, how did you go about declaring your dependent's Medical condition?

And based on our case (highlighted above), how do you advise I proceed with mine (what do I submit initially) to avoid additional requests/delays?

Did you upload the Medical reports from specialists along with a Schedule A form with your application? Or were they submitted during Medical exams with the Panel Physician? OR BOTH?

On the Schedule A form, please what is the BEST/SAFEST answer to the question "Do you or any of your family members have a SERIOUS medical or PHYSICAL or Mental disorder"

Raise a CSE and plead your application be reopened. Maybe the exchange rate used affected the final figure. 20990 is quite close to 19390 Update your POF with the additional dated funds that you have.
Do whatever you have to do before your RPRF is processed and refunded. When is your AOR?

I'm so sorry this happened to you.

The difference between 20990 and 19390 is CAD$1600 (over 430k+) It is not close.

Dear Experts,

I need your advise. I got a refusal letter on my application today which does not add up. The denial ground was that I did not have sufficient proof of funds but I do have funds to the total of CAD20990 with stanbic mutual funds. The minimum requirement for my family size is CAD19390. My mutual funds states categorically that I have full access to it and can liquidate it in partial or fully. The last GCMS notes I requested that I got last week did not state anything about issues with POF. It only said it requires further review. I don't even know what to do at this moment. I need advise please. I still have additional funds in my other accounts but did not bother to raise a CSE cause I thought i had passed the minimum POF. Is there an email I can contact or some phone number to reach to state my case and show that I have enough funds?

Waiting your advice on next steps or even a way forward

This is sad. Did you attach exchange rate of that day you submitted your application? Difference of 430k should give you a strong buffer zone.

I think you should raise a CSE for your application to be reopened and also call them. Liquidate your PoF and put it in Fixed Deposit.

After PNP, you will still pass through the regular Express Entry process (post-ITA) when the province has given you nomination. If a province has nominated you for work in a particular NOC, I think that work experience should be in your EE profile as well.

Good day family. I’m happy to be here. With immense help from this platform (by being a silent reader) I’ve been able to get a good IELTS score LRSW 9/9/8/7. I took the test with British Council, I opted for the computer delivered option for the IELTS as the results were available within 3 working days. I’m based in Accra. I also selected the computer delivered option because the Writing section had a word count :-) I’ve completed my WES evaluation in a little over a month. I evaluated only my MSc. My current CRS is 451 as I’m 34 years. I’m hoping there are others in my boat so we can encourage each other towards this journey. God be with us all.

Hello guys, I am am over 5months post Aor and I have a little concern regarding my proof of funds,
I gave my spouse about 16500 CAD in November last year as support because she is the primary applicant. and i work as a systems analyst.

The account history for 6months before we submitted our application is as follows:

Sep 2018 --- 4300 CAD
October 2018 --- 4250 CAD
November 2018 --- 16500 CAD
December 2018 --- 18000 CAD
January 2019 --- 21932 CAD
Ferbruary 2019 --- 23000 CAD

Is this account history OK for our proof of funds, hope the bulk sum in November will not raise a flag?
I added an LOE just stating that the funds came from me and it’s readily available to us at anytime.

Note: we are a family of 2 and current requirement is 15777 CAD.

Hope we re good.

Re: Canadian Express Entry/federal Skilled Workers Program - Connect Here Part 8 by ladymarshall: 1:49pm On Aug 21, 2019
Yes it is fine. Attach an LOE that the money is your personal savings accrued overtime. That was what I did (although mine was a combination of savings, salary and income from my personal biz) so the inflow trail was clear. You would need to explain the money from your cousin. Was it a loan, gift deed, diaspora remittance from family etc. If it's a loan, that's unacceptable. If it's remittance, explain it in LOE, diasporas across the world send money to their family back home to care for them, your coz in the US did that, it's a global wide acceptable phenomenon. If you have proof of the wire transfer attach. If it's a gift deed, you would need a signed document from him/her.

The decision to use a gift deed or not for your coz transfer would probably depend on how much your coz transferred. If out of $20 000 in your account, your coz transferred $1000 or $2000, you can explain it away as remittance. That can be overlooked. But if your coz transferred $5000, $10000 or more to you, you can't just claim its remittance, you would need a gift deed. Study your inflow and put yourself in the VO's shoes.

My Journey
It all started on a particular day in September 2017, I was bored at work (I have always been tired of my job even from the very first day I started) and I was chatting with a neighbor. During our conversation which was about getting a school either in the US or Canada for Masters. She mentioned going to Canada as a PR through Express Entry, I have always known about Express Entry but I didn’t have much information and I knew my parents wouldn’t allow me go there that way. Anyways, she explained the whole process and I was over interested. After understanding the whole process I was able to convince my parent. Afterwards, the first thing I did was to register for IELTS then I registered for WES on the 31/10/2017 I wrote the first IELTS and got (L8 R8.5 W7 S6.5) I hadn’t found out about this nairaland thread so when my friend advised me to remark I was like NO that I will write another one. Unilag on the other hand wasted my time until Nasu strike started. While waiting for Nasu to call off their strike I was looking for ways to get two or more certificates so I was stuck between using my Unilag Diploma and my CIPM (Please note that I didn’t know that Unilag diploma was evaluated as one degree with your Bsc) I finally decided to go with Unilag Diploma, but when I found out the stress involved I decided to remove diploma and replace it with CIPM but they said they couldn’t remove it. So instead of adding CIPM I decided to wait for WES to complete the evaluation which was completed on 31st of July 2018. Meanwhile during the strike I registered for another IELTS but the result was worse than the first one; LRWS- 7.5,8,6.5,6.5. Seeing the result I decided to wait for my WES evaluation to be completed before writing another one. After my WES came out in July I decided to upgrade to two or more certificates by using my CIPM but before I could register for an upgrade, WES came out with the WAEC thing. I went ahead anyway hoping I wouldn’t be affected but na lie them no gree, I sent countless mails telling them they could use scratch card but them still no gree. I accepted my fate and went to process my WAEC transcript. While waiting for WAEC verification I heard WES was accepting scratch cards, so I joined a whatsapp group from nairaland, someone was going to get the scratch card for us and also help with taking it to the courier office, all we did was donate money (May God bless that person). Finally my WES evaluation began, so I registered for IELTS exams for December 15, 2018. Come and see reading, fasting and prayer, I didn’t know I was that religious and I could take an exam so serious. I PMed Oga Wassaynest for Liz paid materials for writing which he sent to me (May god bless that man who is now a stranger turned brother now). After writing the exam, the two weeks wait period before the result comes out was the longest ever or so I thought. In fact at a point I was wondering if I could sleep and wake up in two weeks’ time  . Finally the result came out(LRSW- 8.5, 9, 7, 7) and I was at work then, I just entered the toilet and was crying and thanking God. I couldn’t get the hardcopy of my IELTS result immediately because of the Christmas holiday, so on the 2nd of January 2019 I decided to kill 2 birds with one stone, I was the first person at alagbon at 6:50am because I wanted to collect police report  afterwards I went straight to BC’s office for my result which could have been delivered to me by the way. I updated my profile immediately in case there was a draw that day (Please note that I had created my profile with my first WES evaluation and first IELTS). But the draw occurred the following week on Thursday January 10th, 2019. For medicals I used IOM because they are closer to me and QLIFE was overbooked, my medicals was on the 30th of January 2019 and immediately after my medicals I submitted my application.
Now this is when the real wait happens and I thought two weeks was long  two weeks wait is nothing compared to waiting for 5 months 23 days. Me that was praying for 2 months processing time, they showed me pepper. My parents forced me to order GCMS notes and I guess that triggered something because I got an ADR for schedule A and additional family information a week later.
When they say this journey isn’t for the faint hearted, it really isn’t. Sometimes I wonder how I survived the past months, my anxiety was on another level, it was crazy. I even have to pinch myself and remind myself that this is actually happening and that I’m leaving this country, it can get scary though because I will be leaving all my family and friends behind to start a new life. Finally thanks to this wonderful thread that made the journey easy, I started following this thread when it was in part 3 and I made sure I read from part 1 and that helped me a lot.
