Canada accept 4X citizen applicant than the US if you take the money allowed to the program , in The US the waiting time is 6 months cause they are putting more money on it .
CIC has a plan to fix the problem,and it wont involve blocking new applicants.

CIC has a plan LOL LOL LOL

Anyone who applies with just over 1095 days gets kicked for a residency questionnaire because then the lazy power hungry Citizenship employee does not have to process their Citizenship application.

Proving an applicant is/has been "physically present" in Canada is no easy task. Collecting all the evidence that is asked for that is three, four or five years old will take months to collect and you will need two or three boxes to fill.

Being afforded fundamental justice to retain a Counsel to assist you is extremely expensive because in the time necessary to put together all the details requested in a residency questionnaire.

Now the various anti Canada TROLLS that frequent this site every so often have a strong case against Canada with this issue. Canada wants Immigrant Investors, Entrepreneurs and the most highly skilled applicants for permanent residents but......

These people had successful lives before arriving in Canada and on occasion need to go back to the home country to deal with business and family issues. They can afford to fly back and forth.

Now Jason Kenney finds one or twenty persons who are abusing their PR status in Canada and he turns the WOLVES (Citz Employees) loose on all permanent residents. Jason says get tough and they become Gestapo.

Jason Kenney finds that 200 passport babies are born in Canada by Chinese citizens to circumvent China´s one child policy and he wants to make all Canadian parents go through an application process to have their Canadian born child obtain his/her Citizenship. He should demand that the Chinese consulates enforce their own laws (one child policy) when it comes to the parents applying for a visitor visa for any new born.

Citizenship has created a four year backlog of residency questionnaires to deal with and CIC HAS A PLAN! Hilarious!

Those permanent residents who require a PR card to fly anywhere even on vacation get their PR cards renewed only for a year at a time once sernt a residency questionnaire. It takes months to renew any PR card especially for those accused and not proven of violating residency requirements.

The objective of the ACT is PROMPT PROCESSING so if CIC who created such a massive residency questionnaire should of had the resources in place to deal with suspected violators before sending out residency questionnaires.

The key here is can the Police with no evidence drag you into a police station and demand that you prove your innocent of a crime.

CIC has no evidence that a person has violated their residency status but can still demand that the applicant submit additional evidence that they have been physically present. One client who had never been outside of Canada had four kids born in Canadian Hospitals in the six years before submitting her application.

It took her six months to collect all the documents requested by Citizenship that was two years ago. Her Mother became very ill and eventually died and this Lady was afraid to go back home to be with her mother in case Citizenship asked for more evidence to prove her residency.

We recommend that no one should apply for Citizenship if they have been outside of the country for 6 months or more in the last five years. 1,825 days of residency is a far more safe number than anything close to 1095 days.

I do agree that the RQ is a huge fail,since there´s no clear reason why someone should be given this.also, i´m not sure how they will clear the backlog.
the only thing i´m saying is after reading the converstation between J.Kenney and frustrated RQ receivers on twitter and beyond J.K himself the plan is :
_ this year cic will start to conduct test through designeted colleges and univ just like the uk system , new applicant must have done their test prior of sending application (-6months)

- 2014 electronic exit check in every point of exit.
but still not sure what is the plan for the 600 000 applicant waiting in the system ,

@ntl2013

Well your changing the focus of this thread but lets look at what you have written and how illogical Jason Kenney´s approach is and your apparent support of same.

New 2013 FSW applicants must have their credentials assessed before applying. Sounds good on paper.

Today is January 27th and the new program which has already been pushed back twice is scheduled to start on May 3rd 2013 just 93 days from now.

So which College or University has been approved for Credential Recognition?

So what will each College or University be allowed to charge for credential certification?

So how long will it take each College or University to certify ones credentials?

Just because another country has a similar process it does not mean it will work here.We have a totally different occupation recognition based by each province or territory.

The only Federal Regulation of any occupation is Immigration Advisers. Provinces are responsible for their own occupation regulation. All one has to do is look at various occupations in the NOC and some provinces regulate a profession while others do not.

Consider this. A Registered Nurse from India can be considered a Registered Nurse in certain provinces but only a Practical Nurse in Ontario. If that Indian Nurse gets recognized by another Province and wants to work in Ontario because she worked for a day in another province she will be given Registered Nurse status in Ontario.

Like wise a foreigner who is a Plumber can get a temporary work permit in Manitoba or Newfoundland but not in most provinces were being a plumber is a regulated occupation. As soon as he starts working in an unregulated province he can write the Inter Provincial Red Seal Exam and when he/she passes can apply to work in any province.

Now if Jason had thought this process out he would not have had to push back the start date from June 30 2012 til January 01 2013 to May 3rd 2013.

Exit Visa controls for all persons exiting Canada, LOL LOL

Lets just bring back the Gestapo or surround all three oceans with the Canadian Navy, LOL

" 1,825 days of residency is a far more safe number than anything close to 1095 days."

I don´t understand this. The guideline says you are eligible for applying for citizenship if you have accumulated 1095 days blablabla .... so why not applying once you have accumulated 1095 days ? that is what CIC is TELLIN US TO DO!

And yes we did apply at 1,100 days and yes we did get a RQ, it just doesn´t make sense! And now we are waiting for I don´t know how long ... we are happy PR residents who just FOLLOWED the instructions from CIC and now we get PENALIZED FOR THIS!!!!!

If it is safer to wait longer, why they don´t say so, THEY set up the rules so what´s wrong now ?

I just don´t get it :(

It all boils down to the thinking of a CIC employee based on the crazy rantings of the Immigration Minister.

Permanent Residents are all bad people. They don´t reside here and collect welfare in their former countries. This is a huge problem, NOT.

When you want a promotion so bad you will sell your soul to the devil. Jason Kenney wants everyone to think that all permanent residents are close to terrorists. He creates this problem and lazy Citizenship Officers are more than happy to kick you and others for a residency questionnaire than take the rest of the day off.

When a CIC Officer says yes on any application they can be called on the carpet for being too generous but never for constantly saying NO!

After I resigned from CIC I found out that the super tough guys were the ones with their fingers in the cookie jars.

Well that makes sense! Wonder if I should become Canadian after all, sounds so bad. At least they could give PR card for 10 years or longer so we don´t have to renew THAT THING if we can´t get citizenship.

Thanks for your response.
