Hi Afimiko,
 
I'm sorry to hear that is taking so long. My application is under H&C as well. I've been in Canada for 5 year. I decided to apply in 2008 my lawyer suggested two applications one under Skilled worker and "a backup plan" under H&C. I lost one year with the lawyer who couldn't care less with my case. Then I gave up the skilled worker application and did only the H&C. After a long year he put the application in April 2009. In June of 2009 my application was transfered to Etobicoke local office, in March of this year I got a call fro CIC asking for a copy of my new passport. A bunch of weird stuff happened and on March 23 I received AIP from CIC. On March 29 I got another letter asking for my original passport, pay the 490.00 fee, medical exams and police certificates. I have sent everything now I'm waiting for the interview letter. My lawyer had told me that my application would take 36 months to hear from CIC she was surprised that it didn't take that long. After I got the first letter she told me, it would take at least 12 months to hear from them again, and 6 days later I got another letter.
 
I think you should call them again, I don't understand why we have to wait for so long. I know it's hard but keep going and don't give up.
 
 
Sidney.

Same here,

I have a H&C application since 2004 and I am still waiting for decision. I am not sure if this will ever come as all the people I know that filed after have received their decision (good or bad).

I have 2 young children and our lives have been hanging on this approval.

I am have a good job and have been with my employer for more than 4 years. I also have a property and car loan. I am concerned that the wait may be negative.

Please advise me if you or someone you know have gone through this before. Or if you have knowledge on how it works. My file had been at the Etobicoke Immigratin office for 6 years now.

Are there any steps I can take to make it quicker and positive?

Thanks,


Westendgirl

I know a guy that just went thru a similar situation but then He got a cal from CIC once to bring his passport and they simply gave him the permanent residency... As simple as that !   He has been waiting for a little bit more than 4 years...

In my own case ; I just received a letter from CIC requesting me to fill all the forms again, otherwise they will decide based on what they have !!!
The same forms that I gave them already ( completely filled)...   I just don't understand it !!!    WHAT'S GOING ON ?!?!?!

Can somebody help me make sens of that one, please ?
After 2 and half years they just ask me to fill it one more time ?  And I have 30 days to do it or else !!!
right now I've only 2 weeks left to do that !   I don't know how or when simply because I'm working 2 jobs right now and barely gives me time to do toher things !!

Hi there,

Seems like many people are having problems and confusions regarding applying in the HCC category. I, myself was planning to apply under HCC category. I can apply in both Skilled Worker and HCC category and wanted to have an opinion about which one should be preferred.

This link shows that the processing time is about 22 months for the HCC applications. But by observing the time mentioned above by few members, it' doesn't look like this. 

Another thing is that when one has applied under the skilled worker or under HCC category, is it legal to work in Canada while waiting for the result?

Thanks,

March 2011 : Received the AIP ( First stage approval)
March 2011: received a letter requesting medical, police check and landing fees
April 2011: completed the medicals, police check and paid the landing fees

Sounds pretty positive for you so far, perhaps CIC lost your IMM5001? After all they are only people that are processing your case, Did CIC request payment of landing fees? If so they do not usually do this unless PR is going to be issued! Sounds like you could be near the end Smile...Lets hope so! Every case is different and does not always take 22 months, thats just an average!

So whenever CIC asks an applicant to pay the landing fees that means a positive outcome ?

uMairq00 :   It's perfectly normal to work while waiting for the results of your case...

I was working all the time, with a work permit. And they keep on renewing it each year or every 2 years...and It's a OWP that I've always had since 2001 !!!
