Once you have successfully completed an assessment, and become a client, we will represent you and work towards preparing a successful application for you. Adventus Canada Immigration cannot and does not guarantee the results of the application but we will try to do our best for each and every client. We have been operating for over 10 years and have represented hundreds of applicants from around the world to successfully achieve their goal of becoming a Canadian Citizen.
When you do apply, there will be an Acknowledgement of Receipt Letter, which will include your File Number meaning it has been received by IRCC. Depending on the program that your application was submitted under, processing times will vary. However, since Covid affected the world, IRCC has over 2 million applications waiting for processing. However, once your Canada Immigration Application has been acknowledged by the visa office, it is placed in queue for assessment. Visa offices differ in the amount of time they take to provide an initial assessment, and different application types are processed within different time frames. Once our office has filed your Canada immigration application, you will be asked to keep our office informed of any updates, changes and developments with regards to anything that changes in your life.
Please note that not all of the points listed below may apply to you but we would like to remind you that:
If we have nothing new to tell you, you will not hear from us. However, we will be notifying you of updates we receive from IRCC with regards to your file via email.
Make sure to notify us if you change your email address. You must keep us informed of:
- Changes in your family composition,
- Changes to your marital status
- Parenthood occurs,
- Experience a death in your immediate family,
- Change of address, job, gender or anything change of any nature
you must notify our office so that we can update the visa office with this information and instruct you as to what course of action we will take on your behalf; You must also notify our office if your legal status changes in any way. For example, if you filed your Canada Immigration Application while under a Work Permit, and then switch to a Study Permit, if your visa expires, or if you acquire a new visa from a different country, etc. you must also notify us of details such as a change of name. Keep our office informed of any changes, as this will aid us to keep track of elements pertinent to your file. Failure to update the visa office with the types of changes in information enumerated above could be detrimental to your Canada Immigration application.
All applicants for immigration to Canada are required to have medical examinations. The purpose of the medical exam is to determine whether the potential immigrant has any health conditions that are likely to be a danger to public health or safety, or that could be very demanding on Canada‘s healthcare or social services.
Once your Canada immigration application has been fully processed and finalized, the Canadian visa officers will request that you and your dependents provide your passports for the purpose of having your Canada Permanent Resident visas issued. At this time, you will need to send your original passports directly to the Canadian Consulate General/Canadian High Commission/Canadian Embassy that is handling your application. The visas will then be physically inserted into your passports and will be returned to you. Typically, the visa officers will allow for the passports to be returned via a shipping method which enables one to track the shipment. The issuance of your visas and return of your passports is typically performed within two to three weeks of your submission of the passports to the visa post.
The expiration date of your permanent resident visa or COPR (confirmation of permanent residency) will be one year from the date that you complete/completed your medical examination. You will need to land in Canada (i.e. physically enter Canada) by that date or your visa will be considered expired and you will lose your Permanent Residency status.
Since Covid, however eCOPRs are being issued and interviews are not taking place, the E-COPR is sent to you via email.
