Hello. I am living in canada illegally. I am from Polland and I found out that someone has tipped off Canadian immigration. I have a job and also receive social assistance for my two kids who were born in canada. I have filled out an application for permanent residence status but I have not gotten approval or decline yet? What will happen to me? Will I be deported with my kids until my PR application is approved. Or would I be allowed to stay until my PR status is approved/declined?

If I am deported how long does the process take. I believe immigration was tipped off last week.

You should find legal counsel.  There are non-profit groups that assist people with immigration issues of this type and they can help even if you cannot afford to hire an attorney.  You will need to do a bit of research in your community to find those resources, however.

With that said, it actually takes CBSA some time to investigate complaints of this type - if they even will in this specific case.  If they do, you would eventually receive an order of some sort: departure or removal - although a departure order becomes a removal order after 30 days.  At that stage there are a number of steps that you may take to prevent enforcement of such an order and you can point to your pending application as well as your minor children.

So if you are afraid they are going to knock on your door and escort you away in handcuffs in the next month or two, that's not likely at all.  Don't panic.  Rather, use this time to become more prepared for potential problems.

What type of application did you file?  When did you file it?  How does the amount of time you have waited compare with the normal waiting time for your type of application?  Have you requested your GCMS/CAIPS notes regarding your application?  Does anything show up in e-cas on the CIC website?

Thank you for your reply. I will take your advice and seek legal counsel. I am relieved that deportation takes some time. Especially for my kids sake.

The best interests of your children are actually quite important under Canadian law.  That does not guarantee that you won't be deported, but it does make it more difficult and thus time-consuming.
