Police Clearance for CANADA
This might sound a bit silly but I have a question.
I did not include police clearance with my application and now I got an email from the local visa office advising me to submit RPRF and submitting police clearance.
My issue is I lived in a country when til 18 and as soon as i turned over 18 (within 5 months) I moved to canada and my question is do i have to provide PCC for Canada applying through family class.

THank you.

RE: Police Clearance for CANADA
While the law doesn't require it, CIC routinely requests a PCC from your home country even though you didn't live there for 6 months since you are 18. You have two choices: comply with their request or wait until they refuse you and then challenge the refusal as a violation of procedural fairness. While you may be successful with the latter, the former is likely to be much faster.

FSW: App 6/09, reject 12/11, JR leave 7/12, discontinued 9/12
Spousal: App 3/12, sponsor approval 6/12, PPR 9/12. Landed 13 October 2012.
