Since no-one else seems to be able to reply, I will do so again. Firstly, it would be better in your situation if the Appeal Board took TWO years over this, since at that point after two years living in Canada you would be able to claim you had re-established your residency. You are still a permanen...

Just remember that you have limited time to appeal - 60 days from when the visa officer finds you have not met the residency obligation.

Basically if you sign the waiver you have lost your claim to permanent residence. If you want to have a fighting chance of keeping your permanent residence, as other people have rightly stated, you need to turn up at the Canadian border and seek entry as a permanent resident. I don't agree with the ...

Relax - not a big problem - you simply place the photos in an envelope and attach them to page 2 of the IMM008 Form. Do not forget to write your name and date of birth on the back of one of the photos.

Hello, Siumply put, here is no way they can sponsor you in the family class. The only people they can sponsor are there own children, parents, or grandparents if these are not already living in Canada. You should look to see if you qualify of your own accord as a skilled worker or a business immigra...

That is correct - provided it is a simple overstay as in this case. However I would still advise applying for restoration of status so there is no "black mark" against you. Otherwise, in years to come, you could even have trouble entering another country if the authorities obtain information about y...

Hi, Thanks for being so straightforward about your situation. Unfortunately the answer to both your questions is "no" Until you have been rehabilitated, you are not eligible under the Immigration Act to enter Canada as a visitor even for a short period, or for a work permit. I have heard of cases wh...

No, she cannot get a work visa without a job offer :( (unless of course she qualifies for the New Zealand or Australian Working Holiday Programs, which you apply for in Sydney). Otherwise, you have to file a sponsorship application for her.

You do have "implied status" if you applied for an extension prior to the expiry of your stay. Your status continues on the same terms and conditions as previously until you hear back from the authorities.

On the second point, you may be asked to do a medical.

The test is whether his mother's condition would cause "excessive demand on Health and Social Services" in Canada. Not an easy one to answer in this case, and this would need specialist medical and immigration assistance.

Hi Mikhail, Technically you would not be seeking a Pardon. A Pardon is only available for offenses committed in Canada, not elsewhere. What you would be doing is Applying for Rehabilitation, and you can do this, as you correctly state, 5 years after completion of your sentence. Before that time you ...

Your employer needs to be based in Canada in order to obtain a work permit for you, even if they only have a branch office in Canada. An offer of employment in a skilled job can indeed shorten the time required for you to immigrate - there is something called an Arranged Employment Opinion which you...
