      @Jeanne-M we entered the EE pool with 440 point and ended up getting picked without a provincial nomination. You never know when the low point selection months may occur. For us we were lucky that there were three draws in Jan 2020 which brought the point requirements down to 438.  I guess it depends on your urgency as you could end up waiting for a while for the low point requirement. CanadaVisa.com tracks the required points quite nicely. - https://www.canadavisa.com/express-entry-invitations-to-apply-issued.html?&_ga=2.19330360.1092463727.1582541693-1974226454.1581573615#gs.xb7exv I would do anything to boost your points. In our case we verified my wife's degree even though I was the primary applicant. I think the WES turn around time was about a month once you have the necessary documents. This is quite a personal question. To me it would depend on factors like your and your wife's age. Are you willing to wait another year to have a child. Other things to consider is in SA you have access to your family and friends for support; in Canada you will have to grow a new support base. Also young child care is expensive in Canada when compared to a nanny in South Africa. I also think about the benefit of  your child being born Canadian. Though, if you are committed to move your children would naturalize at the same time as you, so you are only delaying their citizenship by 3-4 years. For us the entire process from booking our IETLS exam to receiving PPR took just over a year, but we were lucky to be picked for ITA within a week of submitting our EE application. @LidiaS77 provides good insights on looking at your EE application from both you and your spouse. We also know a couple who applied singularly (wife only) as this gave her (and their children) a better chance of receiving ITA. They are now in the process of getting the husband across.

      I’ve read on a few forums that the officer who handles your case has the authority to extend your medical clearance date, but it is on a case by case basis. I’ll wait for the passports to get back and see how they handled it.

      I’m not sure as I can only speak from our personal experience... As far as I’m aware you have to make your landing BEFORE your medicals expire...if your medicals have already expired and you’re still waiting for passports you may run into some problems....I would take this up with CIC.
    • PhilipCX
      Reason I’m asking is we’ve got our PPR exactly a week before our medicals expired, which was the 14th of Feb and they didn’t mention anything of this, we’re now waiting for our passports to return.  Also I’ve seen someone else who they’ve also just extended the medical dates so I do no think it is necessarily the same for everyone.

      Ok that sounds good. But will they always ask in a PPR email if you want to redo medicals? Or only in close cases like you had.
