hi carly and holdingfaith. have you received your nomination? ang latest na nakita ko na approval is september 2008, for sure malapit na yung sa inyo.
holdingfaith, if you get nominated and pass your application to CEM, pwede ka pa rin mag-include ng letter if nasalanta kayo ng bagyo. there's no harm in trying, baka i-consider din nila. i have heard or read somewhere na kahit pnp nominee, nagchecheck pa rin CEM kung na-affect talaga ng bagyo.

good luck and god bless.

Holding faith and anrey, nareceived na namin LOA dated November 23,2009.. Hindi kasi kami nasalanta ng bagyo, bumaha sa lugar namin (bulacan) pero hindi naman grabe katulad sa iba. Ang processing yata sa CEM eh 11 months, nakapaghintay kami ng one year sa and one month sa LOA, madali na rin yung 11 months. anrey ka lang malapit na rin yung sayo..

Hello holding faith,

I a new member of this site. I saw that you're from the Phil. although you applied for Manitoba, but then, I wish to seek your advise dahil nakita ko na you submitted your docs to CIC Manila and you've undergone medical exam already.

My family applied for the family stream of Alberta, tanong ko lang sana (in case na family stream din yung sayo), kung anu-ano yung documents na hinihingi ng CIC-Manila (original/ cert true copy /authenticated by DFA through red ribbon).

We initially sent the following docs to AINP:
-birth certificates/ marriage contract proving my relationship to sponsor,
- birth cert of my hubby & 2 children
- marriage contract
-cert true copy of Transcript of records and Diploma
- original licensure certification
-photocopy of accomplished CIC Forms
- etc..

Pasensiya na po for this long entry. Anticipating your response. Salamat!

hi cdmanipol, honestly i'm not sure about the exact requirements of Alberta... what we submitted here in our Canadian Embassy are the following:

-all our birth certs from NSO
-marriage contract from NSO
-original TOR
-original college cert (principal only)
-original employment cert (principal only)
-manager's check for visas and PR application
-original cic forms

nag send din ako ng new and original bank certs (kahit hindi required) kasi nilipat ko yung account namin dito sa manila. Please note that these are all for MPNP application, might be totally different from Alberta's AINP... Regards and goodluck!

Hi holdingfaith, salamat sa response.

Kahit magkaiba tayo ng program, at least i've learned na hindi nga required na lahat ng docs ay authenticated by DFA.

Salamat ulit. Good luck din sainyo. Hope you get the approval as soon as possible =)

hi russ,

you have a very good chance of getting to manitoba kasi meron kayong uncle doon. I copied an excerpt from their official website para mas detailed... (http://www2.immigratemanitoba.com/browse/howtoimmigrate/pnp/pnp-family_support.html)


You are eligible to apply under the MPNP Family Support priority assessment stream if you can demonstrate that you:

* have a close relative who is an established resident of Manitoba and who is willing and able to support your settlement in the province.
* meet our minimum requirements for age, education, work experience and language ability

Family Support stream minimum requirements

* Age: You are between the ages of 21 and 49.

* Education/training: You have completed post-secondary education of at least one academic year and received a diploma or certificate.

* Work experience: You have at least two years of full-time work experience within the past five years.

* Language: You have enough English or French to get a job in Manitoba in your intended occupation soon after you arrive. For an objective assessment of your English skills take an IELTS test (International English Language Testing System) and submit your score with your application.

* Adaptability: You can demonstrate your intention and ability to establish successfully in Manitoba based on your:
o connection to Manitoba, including settlement supports from family
o employability, based on your training and work experience related to your intended occupation, including any licence or certification required in your country of residence
o settlement funds
+ Applicants should have at least C$10,000 plus C$2,000 for each accompanying dependant. (If you don't have enough money you may apply with the support of your close relative, as explained below.)

Who is a close relative and what must they do for you to apply under the Family Support stream?

Who is a close relative and what must they do for you to apply under the Family Support stream?

* A close relative is defined as a mother/father, son/daughter, sister/brother, aunt/uncle, niece/nephew, grandparent or first cousin.

* You must include with your MPNP application documents showing how you are related to your close relative.

* Your close relative must supply documents showing that he or she is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident and has lived in Manitoba for at least one year.

* Close relative must complete a Manitoba Affidavit of Support (MAS) form, which is in the Application Kit.
o This form must be witnessed and signed by a Manitoba notary public or comissioner for oaths. (NOTE: It is illegal in Manitoba for a commissioner for oaths to charge money to witness this document. A notary public may charge a fee.)
o If your close relative has supported the applications of other relatives for immigration to Canada she/he must give this information to the MPNP and must include the current address and employment status of the previously supported or sponsored person(s).

* You must designate your close relative as your representative who is authorized to communicate with the MPNP if personal information needed during the application process.

* If you cannot demonstrate that you have sufficient settlement funds (explained in the application kit) your close relative must complete the Declaration of Financial Support By Close Relative section of the Manitoba Affidavit of Support (MAS) form.
