    Hello. I am hoping that someone replies to the job posting... Shipper/Receiver  job

     

    It is a great place to work. Anyone can be taught. I've been here 6 years now. Been in Canada for 21 years.

    Why this job... when I lived in SA, East London, there were alot of jobs I was not allowed to do because I'm female. 

    I did every job I was not allowed to do in SA when I came to Canada... even packaged toilet paper.

    I urge everyone to take a chance and try something new. I did and I have no regrets. 

    Just try.

    Study Permit Application

    Hi @Alexander I don't know much about study permit applications, not having gone through one myself, but I'll take a whack at some of your questions: 1. anything related to processes in SA at the moment, I have no clue. The pandemic has really thrown timeframes around. I'd leave these questions for the others. 2. With the medical exam, if you have not been selected for PR, am sure you'd need to have a new one done (if you are drawn from this point onward). Having said this, you don't really need to do one right at this moment and can do it at a later stage or when you get selected. It's just one less thing to think about if you do have this when you submit your application. If you're using the medical for the study permit application, then yes, I believe you'd need a new one. (because it sounds like you just missed the cut-off of validity here). 3. I don't believe so. I'm not sure there's a connection unless you noted down on your study application your EE profile number? (pardon my ignorance) 4. Never heard of the bank converting the statement to CAD. I would've thought you get the statement from the bank and then you yourself do the conversion. 5. Yep, the waiting and cutting it close is name of the game. I can't answer about the submitting the application in bits and pieces, but I personally don't think it's a good idea because those are likely mandatory requirements in the application. It is different if you've submitted already and are just changing details (i.e. new passport details, new bank balances, etc.) Hopefully someone having done this more recently comes along. Good luck with your application! Sounds like it's going to be an adventure.

    Immediate family travel

    Hi everyone Are grandparents/parents allowed to travel from SA to visit us? We have PR and from what I read recently, immediate family members (parents, grandparents) are allowed to visit. We would need to provide some documentation as proof of relationship, PR etc. They would need to do COVID testing before and after landing and would need to stay in a quarantine hotel. Second question: Which airlines/airports (for transit) are allowing South Africans to travel right now? Thanks M
  7. Hello. Just letting all know that this positing, Shipper/Receiver and CNC Operator, will be removed on Tuesday evening.

    Study Permit Application

    Hi all, I've posted several times on here over the past couple of years, with questions related to PR which has proven to be a dead-end for me. I recently applied for a 1-year MA program in Toronto, and am thrilled to have received news this week that I've been accepted into the program! I have a few questions regarding the application process which I was hoping some of you in the community here might be able to answer (even if it's just one or two of them): - Are recent police clearance certificates required for a study permit application? (I have one which was issued in early 2020). If I need a more recent one, do you know how long police clearance certificates are currently taking to process? - I completed an upfront Medical examination in March 2020, as I was hoping to receive a nomination for PR (which never happened). Due to COVID, would this medical exam be accepted even if it is just older than 1 year? Or would I need to complete a new upfront medical examination? - I currently have an active profile for PR on the immigration website, which I recently renewed after the first profile expired in February. Do you know if this could be a problem in terms of my Study Permit application? Should I withdraw my PR profile? - In terms of proof of funds I went through a document checklist stating I need proof of funds for 3-6 months showing I'm able to support myself during my studies. Is it possible to submit my bank statements from Capitec with a digital stamp in ZAR, or do I need to go to the bank and somehow try and ask them to convert the statement to CAD? For the first 3 months in the past 6 months my funds were quite a lot lower than the requirement. In the following 3 months they have been significantly above the requirement. If the average amount of funds over the entire 6 month period is higher than the minimum requirement, is this acceptable? - The website indicates a processing time of 19 weeks, which would mean I'd receive my Study Permit in late August if I applied next week with all the documentation. My MA program begins in September 2021, and this is cutting it very fine. I may be able to start studying remotely from SA however due to remote learning and COVID. Do you know if it is possible to submit my Study Permit application while waiting for my Police Clearance and Upfront Medical to be processed? Thanks so much in advance for your help!

    Study permits for my children

    Hi, That's a bummer, but I am shocked at those who gave you that advise in the first place. IRCC already clearly state it that a study not visitor's visa should be applied for, for any child of school-going age. At any rate, I am not in the same boat, and I am sure you must have applied by now, but in the occasion that you haven't, I don't think there is any problem. I also don't think it would delay your own or your husband's work visas. But you might have to pay for a different application fee. The long and short is, don't fret over it. Just apply and hope for the best. Myke.

    SAIPA to CPA

    Thought I will just update on the topic, SAIPA to CPA if there is anyone also wanting to take this path. The only thing you get is about 12 months of your 30 months practical experience. Everything else needs to be done again. There is some options like ‘fast tracking’ where you can do some of the 6 modules together. I did the first 2 together and if you are working and doing this it is hard but if you really want it you can do it. To summarize: if you got SAIPA and you want your CPA you need to do 6 modules and 18 months of practical experience. So yes starting over and doing a lot of studying again.

    Citizenship Pandemic

    Just finished up our citizenship application (March 2021). AOR's seem to be taking anywhere from 3-6 months or longer. Processing times also seem longer than usual (most probably like most things right now - covid related) , but also very varied across different applicants. We're hoping for the best though. It would be great to complete our citizenship tests this year.

    Citizenship Pandemic

    Hi, just wanted to check on this topic. We (me, wife and 4 kids) applied for citizenship in Nov 2019 and had a citizenship test scheduled for 16 March 2020. The test was cancelled a week before we were to write because of Covid. I was able to write the test online on 28 Dec 2020. We have had no correspondence from CIC about my test nor anything about my wife and kids applications. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Study permits for my children

    I’m currently awaiting approval of my LMIA work permit. I am an essential worker. I apply for an open work permit for my husband (essential worker)and children. I was advised that I would need to apply for visitor visas and not study permits for my children as they are primary school age. IRCC have now said that I do indeed need to apply for study permits for them IMM1294. I’m not sure how to link this to my account and when I try to apply for them as a new application, it says they do not qualify for study permits. Any advice on who I should contact regarding clarification on this matter or anyone in the same boat? I’d be grateful for any advice on this

    Have to get this done sometime. Could have applied in 2017 I think, every time I get ready to do it I find another toy I need to buy instead! What's happening in Portugal?

    Citizenship

    So I applied for citizenship. There is now an online option: https://citapply-citdemande.apps.cic.gc.ca/en/landing However, my friend was unable to see a link to this page on his CIC session. Anyway, I submitted and paid the fee on the 23rd of Feb (right after filing my taxes). Finally in the home stretch, then off to Portugal 😆

    Citizenship application use of agent

    Pfft, there's nothing to it, especially if you did the PR stuff yourself. Don't bother paying an agent for that.
  23. Is it worth getting an immigration agency to do application for Canadian citizenship. I did tons of paperwork to get a provincial nomination and then for PR, I would prefer an easier time with this. But I wonder if you still end up doing as much and paying as well!

    Work permit processing

    Hello and good morning, May I ask 1) where you uploaded your PCC on the online application website (for you and your spouse)? 2) where you uploaded the checklist documents (both the general (IMM5488) and the specific one for SA (IMM5925)? 3) whether your spouse also needed to submit the checklist documents since they are also applying for an open work permit (I suppose)? Thanks in anticipation.

    Pre-Immigration Work

    I actually googled PNP and AIPP; got the answers pretty much up front. The provinces got me though... 😅 Got some sketchy results googling that... I've checked out how PNP works and it seems too simple. I mean like its down to applying and not much else I can do. For Alberta's PNP (AINP in their case), I only qualify for express entry, and I haven't done IELTS yet (Got to wait until Oct. soonest in Port Elizabeth). Apparently my college certifications aren't worth much either as the courses weren't at least 3 years long lol. So my score looks pretty horrid. I only have my marital status, age, and good looks going for me... So at this point, it seems simply being in contact with recruiting agencies in Canada and baiting for a work permit seems to be my route. Maybe see if I can apply for a bursary and go study something... Either way, you guys made my way pretty clear: 1) Keep applying for jobs and pray for sponsorship, 2) Do IELTS ASAP so I can get my score up. Thank you all for the support 🌹 I didn't expect this much hospitality and help. I sincerely bid you a beautiful Wednesday evening (morning if you're in CA). The Penguin

    Pre-Immigration Work

    PNP Provincial Nomination , when a province is interested in what you have to offer and ‘sponsors’ you 600 point for express entry which kind of guarantee that you’ll at least get an invite. AIPP, Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program, as Neline explained, employers proves you are the best person for the job and you get invited to apply on those grounds. NS, PEI, NB, NL lol... the Atlantic Provinces, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Newfoundland (and Labrador) .

    Pre-Immigration Work

    @Nelline Woah... I have no idea what PNP, AIPP, NS, or PEI is.... 😅 I joined SACanada.org to know where to get started and look for guidance, so this is all new to me. 😅 At this point I'd consider a laborer position just to spend a year in Canada and get a feel for the country and it's people. A year would give me plenty of time to assess my path, whether it be to study further that side or simply look for other work opportunities. Either way, I will look into what PNP routes are and the AIPP. You have been most informative. Thank you!
