Hi,

Does anyone know how long does stage one approval on H & C take nowadays? I´ve submitted the application in Jan 2011 and on the website it states they started processing Dec 2011. Also, if it´s transferred to local office, is that a good or a bad thing? Thnaks...

SO FAR SO GOOD (in reply to: H & C timeline)
Transferred to a local office then a decision will be made on the application. That´s the first stage, approved in principle.

Time line varies from case to case.

Good luck!

From my experience
My application took 2 yrs before Approved and 5 months after it was complete. But remember each case are different
Good Luck

Sue quick question : which office was your application approved at?
In my situation : H&C and PRRA was denied in August 2009. Appealed to federal court- Federal Court Lawyer agreed to send both decisions back to a different officer to be re-determined. This was in November 2009.
On 28 Feb got decision from CBSA that PRRA again rejected BUT H&C approved in principle ( both decision was decided on Nov 28, 2011- letter was dated Dec 28 and went to pick up decision in person on Feb 28)
In Canada since 2002 did Medical and police clearance- obviously those expired.
The letter I received with AIP states that it will take a further 12-24 months before final!! Holy!
Reason for my question Sue ( or others with similar situation).
My application was approved at the dundas west office

Hi Sue, great news from you. Ilissa need to exercise so time to let them get back to you. You need to be happy because there are other people hanging out there awaiting their AIP. Don´t get me wrong, but it depend on the offices that is handling your file and base on case by case. I applied for H&C in September 2010 and PRRA in December,2010. Up till now, my files is still in processing. What scared me most is that the officer that gave me the PRRA application told me that it might take 2-6 months. Its getting to one year and three months now. I hope this is a good sign?. I applied through the old fashion with Dundas street local office and later transferred to Vancouver. In July 2006, it was transferred to Montreal again.Since then I´ve been waiting for them to make a decision.
