Kami naman, we applied under the simplified skilled worker application July last year. We received the acknowledgment letter 3 months after stating that no processing will occur on our file for approximately 48 months. So, I guess mga 5 years nga yan. We dont have any relatives in Canada (well, meron but medio distant na although close to my Dad), but I have lots of friends there. Ako yung principal applicant. We are still unsure if we really want to go there...medio nagiging sure lang pag naiinis na kami sa gobyerno dito hehe. We just want to open the option for our daughter (and other future kid/s). Pero, my husband and I discuss it a lot and more or less 85% sure kami na if Canada will allow us to migrate, we will. I have siblings rin sa US, so ok na rin for us kasi malapit lang naman. THis thread is very helpful for us din.
