Hello guys:

First time post here. Just thought I'd post because I'm running out of options:

I'm not sure how many of us have been waiting for very long, but my application was submitted since June, and I am yet to hear back from IRCC:

Medicals Done Jun 6
Application Submitted Jun 8
Biometrics Done Jun 9
Eligibility and Background Check started Aug 19
Medicals Uploaded to Pass N/A
PPR N/A


Thanks

You can look for someone in Canada to send an email to the MP that is representing your school's area.

Afternoon guys! My cousin just got his GCMS note and I’ve been staring at it since, I didn’t know how to interpret it, please can someone help?!!

Is his application still in progress?
Did he have a denied application?

If yes to number 1, check the pre assessment notes to check status.
If yes to number 2, check the latter pages to see comments by the VO.

Hope this helps

Hello everyone. New follower of this thread.

I'm just about to start this Canada study process and i really want to get it right from the start, so i need honest and expert advise please.

I would like to apply with my family, that is my husband and 1 child (2years old). I am a graduate of Economics ( BSc. 2012), Chartered Accountant (ACA 2018), and i've been working as a professional Accountant since 2015. I am intending to apply for a post graduate certificate course (1 year) in Business Administration (I chose this 1 year course majorly because i can only have funds to cover our 1 yr living expense and my tuition balance + flight costs). Is this a good decision especially since i'll be applying as a family? Or can i go for a 2 yr program and just provide explanation on how i intend to come up with the second year tuition and living expense?

Also, someone told me it isn't advisable for someone applying for their family to go for a 1 yr program. How true is this?

Kindly advise.

The programme duration will be determined by the course you are going for and the total POF you have, though IRCC says you have to show a minimum of one year living expenses, some of their action does support this. Going for a 1 year programme means you show a lower amount of POF, applying with you family will require you to present a strong SOP to explain why the whole family is travelling.

I'm not an agent, but I see people from other schools create WhatsApp groups Soni thought it best to create a group where we can share ideas from our admission to visa application. I don't think it's a big deal as long as I'm not requesting for anything financial.


Okay, so the reason why whatsapp groups aren't encouraged is that it restricts the interaction on this forum, if more people are creating private groups it drives engagement from here to those groups, new people joining this platform will not see any information and once new information is not available the platform dies.

The people that were posting their numbers for groups were wrong to have done that. Like I said, if you need clarification or questions to be answered post it here and even tag some members you feel that will answer your question.

All the best

Breaking News!!!

My application was refused this afternoon based on purpose of visit, insufficient funds and asset lol.

I'm going for a year course, tuition is 18,000 Cad out of which 10,000 Cad has been paid remaining 8,000 Cad.

I am self sponsor and going with 2 of my kids

Bank statement of almost 20M provided, pay stubs, employment letter, confirmation and promotion letters, my CAC documents registered 7 years ago, land documents valued at 30M etc.


Cheers

Take heart 7colours, your profile is strong, just request for your notes and resubmit, when you get your notes depending on the reason you can explore Judicial review too. This refusal reeks of bias imo. Just prepare to refire.

Thanks for the response, I actually had a 2:2 in my Undergrad studies with a cgpa of 3.29 and I already have a masters degree in Agricultural Economics but I just want to go for a second masters degree. So how feasible is it getting admission for masters prog. Also my budget is between 10,000CAD to 20,000CAD.

It is possible to go for a second masters, but you have to draft a strong SOP to explain why are going for another masters. It is also not impossible to get masters admission with 2:2 but is it hard so you have to apply to many schools. Since you have a budget, you have to now search for schools with that range. Do not forget to factor in your living expenses to your budget.

Gurus in the house please help a sister....
I will like to start applying to schools but I don't know how to go about it. For Masters program do I email the school directly and applying directly as well and for college application,do I need to apply directly to the college as well or is there a general application portal for all Colleges that I can apply to multiple schl and pay one charges or do I need to apply to each college seperately?
Thanks

Hi Teefab, first thing is to determine is the course you want to study, then how much do have for tuition, this helps you narrow down your search, then what present educational qualification do you have? if you have 2:1 then search for masters, if you have lower grade then search for colleges, once you see a course you like then you have to check the school admission requirements. Most schools have their admission portal where you can apply however there is also a general consolidated admission portal like Ontario colleges portal which you can use to apply to colleges in Ontario, there is also Applyboard.

Continuation on why I am scared gangan is that I was told USA and Canadian embassies shares

1. What and how do i explain my previous denials at the us embassy for an F1 study permit as asked at the background information section on the IMMI 5257 form. God �� I know you grant wishes and answer prayers make this effort count and successful for me and everyone looking forward to a success story like I am AMEEN ��. - Just state you were refused the visa cos you did not meet the requirements
2. At the Education section still on the form, do I fill in the 3 post secondary education programs I took? - You can do so if you wish but check if it will not be a disadvantage to the programme you are going for now ie there is supposed to be a progression[b][/b]
3. At the Employment section also, does the 1year NYSC work experience count? Can i include that as well? - You can or leave it out, add your present job experience
4. Because I am married with no kids yet does my work still works as a tie at home country to be granted Canadian study permit? - If you are travelling alone, you cann use your hubby and parents as home ties, you have to explain you are coming back them, back it with pictures
P:S: the school that granted my admission say's that tuition deposit is optional am I safe at the embassy even if I have no tuition deposited?. If you have the fuds you can go ahead and pay the some portion of the fees to show capacity and commitment.
5. How long does it take to get a response from the Canadian authority for permits to be granted (noting that my start date is for Jan 9 2023, alternate intake Dates are May 1 2023, or September 6, 2023. And expiry date of offer to be sept. 7 2023. There is no defined time for response, their official response time is 12 weeks but more often than not they have been exceeding this timeline, your Jan 23 start date might be too close for you, you might need to defer to later start date.

Yeah, I just looked into my sponsors account statement. There was lump sum moved over a short period.. but it was from his account to his account. Do I have to reapply to explain? And how so I request for this gcms note?

To get gcms, try google search and choose any of the sites that offers that service, or reach to one of the members here Anon123 for help.

The funds movement you referenced was it to his corporate account, I saw you stated you provided certificate of reg and also salary account, that could have confused the VO. Was the fund domiciled in his corporate or salary account?

Thanks for the response sir,

1) I used my father as my sponsor
2) yes, and it accumulated to 12m
3) I couldn't pay the fees as form A delayed and frustrated me.and by the time I had access to my fees and changed it to dollar, I had already missed the deadline and lost the admission. The school adviced that if my Visa application comes out positive I should reapply for January session and then pay the fees.

I suspect the issue will be lump sum deposit into the account, if there where you need to explain the source and back it up with documentation, as advised by Bepositive, request for your GCMS notes to know the real reasons for the refusal.

Please I need someone with experience to advice and guide me as I try to reapply.

I applied for a study Visa and it was refused for this reasons.


I am not satisfied that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay as required by
paragraph R216(1)(b) of the IRPR (https://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/regulations/sor-2002-227/
section-216.html). I am refusing your application because you have not established that you will
leave Canada, based on the following factors:
• The purpose of your visit to Canada is not consistent with a temporary stay given the
details you have provided in your application.
• Your assets and financial situation are insufficient to support the stated purpose of travel for yourself (and any accompanying family member(s), if applicable).


My POF was 12 million. Can someone pls assist me through this .

Hi Njoku,

To be able to respond to your question you have to provide more details about your application.
1. Are you self-sponsored or you have a sponsor, if you have a sponsor how is he/she related to you?
2. Where there huge or lump sum deposits into the account you presented.
3. Have you paid your fees completely or partly?

Provide answers to these then the house can offer guidance.

Let me add to this. Weather Legit or not. I’d advise you move your money to a commercial bank.
Earlier this year I submitted my application using a MFB statement with monies I saved over time. Lo and behold, I was refused. Attached is the response from IRCC. All the best.

Nice one Loohlaah.

However, this is position by the VO is not fair nor right, they would have gone ahead to confirm the authenticity of the funds, you cannot on one hand claim that MFB fund businesses and on the other hand claim they do not fund studies. This is not a loan, this is SAVINGS by the customer, fund that is/will be readily available to the customer whenever it is needed.

This is a perfect case for JR.

Nothing concern IRCC with your loan- However please go and settle your loan if it is still outstanding- having good character is finance (borrowing and paying on time) is one thing they don't joke with in the Western world you are preparing to go.

But kweje what i wanted to know is that, even if it goes the other way round, i hope it is not something one can get a ban for cause i am scared right now and base on what they wrote in the request letter they only made mention ot getting the application refused if no better evident that is what i wanted to know and be sure of

Hi Ani,

1. The agent made an error to ask you to pay 4k when the amount the school requires was stated.
2. Are you aware of the other documents submitted by the agent ie can you attest to the authenticity?

Suggested solutions
1.Quickly reach out to your school to seek clarification on the partial payment, to find out if there is any negative implication.
2. Find out if any balance can be paid immediately.
3. Draft a good LOE that will explain the reason for the partial payment and the stance of the school to accepting it.

NB- It is possible IRCC has confirmed from the school on this issue before sending you PFL so try and reach the school to get their input before drafting the LOE.
