I meant that it will not help you because, as a U.S. national, the place where you would have to apply if you were still living in the U.S. is the same - Buffalo, NY. Thus it makes no difference that you are in Canada. The form "Applying for permanent residence from within Canada" is not for your ca...

Usually there is not a minimum amount of income required.

Threre is no need to spend years researching this -all you need to do is obtain a copy of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations, and section 133(4) covers everything you need to know.

In view of the fact it seems you have been adnitted to Canada on a work permit for more than 1 year, you can indeed apply from within Canada, but this does not help in your case.

The criminal issues are not going to be easy to deal with. Although ,of course, you want to live with your husband, and the Immigration Act has a stated aim of re-uniting families, you need to understand that Canada is not seeking to bring in people with criminal records, or people they believe have...

This does not seem feasible. It seems you were not able to include your son on your permanent residence application, or if you did he was not prepared to come. Now the only thing you can do is, with his mother's permission, sponsor him to come to Canada, but this process will not be completed by sum...

Hi, There seem to be many issues here that are not directly immigration ones, but as far as those are concerned, forget about the skilled worker route. The sponsorship route will be much quicker. You clearly want and need to get married to facilitate this quickly, either in Canada or in the U.S., an...

You can apply for an open work permit when you receive first stage approval.

The information you have about HRDC is basically correct, but does not apply to you once you have your first-stage approval.

Yours is a difficult situation, as you may be aware. Since he was deported, he needs the Minister's consent to return. There is no form for this, although CIC is considering developing one. For now, you complete the application form for a visitor visa, and make your case as to why he should be allow...

His prior lack of legal status in the U.S. is not an impediment to obtaining permanent residence. You should be honest on the forms. The only problem is if you apply from within Canada as the principal applicant, your application will be processed in the U.S., and although in most cases an interview...

Hi Hayley,

It should take around 6 months. Hopefully they will acknowledge receipt, but if you have not heard in about 3 months you could write or E-mail them quoting your file number.

Re: 1) See my previous reply. 2) Yes, if it was skilled work experience at the appropriate level why not? 3) What tax thing in the application? You do not have to show any tax returns or proof of payment of taxes. 4) The point is not what your job title was, but what your duties were. 5) Are you say...
