Subject: H&C grounds steps
  Hello all,
We have submitted PR application for my grandmother on H&C grounds in August 2009. On January 29, 2010 we received a letter from CIC-Vergeville stating our case was transferred to Mississauga. However we haven’t heard from that office since.
I am confused with 2 steps… Correct me if I am wrong, we are now at the 2nd step of the process which takes 15 months (My guess the 1st step is Vegreville and the 2nd step is your local office)
Thank you!

Vegreville is the initial screening process to see if everything is in order.

The first step is that the officer at the local immigration officer makes a decision, approved in principal.

The second step is all the rest, medical, security, and police certificate and paying the right of PR and photos, etc.

You are in for the first step at the local IMM centre.

The first step of H&C can take up to 1 to 2 years.

Stop focusing on the timeline and start focusing on the Unusual, Undeserved or Disproportionate Hardship you face.

Your refugee claim reasons have nothing to do with H&C factors.

Read the IP 5 H&C manual.

Go to www.cic.gc.ca and search operational manuals, Inland Processing IP5

I understand that Canadian Kids can be a hardship but they are not undeserved, unusual or disproportionate in the vast majority of situations.

I am not being critical of your Lawyer without knowing all the details. Something does not seem correct.

Stage one is approval in principle and stage two is background checks regarding admissability.
