hi there air3973,
it seems to me that we have different case as i have no job offer when i applied for PNP in Manitoba. regarding your questions, i will try to answer them one by one.
...(1) were you already working in Canada when you submitted your application? your processing was quite fast as I noted in your timeline; A: Nope, i am still working on the Philippines when i applied.
(2) if you were back in your country when you applied, did you go to Canada right after you got your nomination and started working?; A: When my nomination was approved, i still submitted the papers to the Canadian embassy in the Philippines.
(3) where did you have your medicals done?; In the Phils.
(4) did you get a paid representative to assist you in your PNP application? Thanks in advance for the bother...and congratulations by the way! I hope everything's going well for you in Canada now. Nope, i did not get a paid rep to do mine.
if you still have some questions in mind, i'll be happy to help you. just send me an email on my gmail. username is corics. see you!
