Hindi naman ang "Manila Office" ang tatanggap at magrereview ng application documents mo kundi ang CIC office sa Sydney, Nova Scotia. So, what's the point of getting a check list for "Manila Office"? There's a standard check list included in the application package that you should use.

Similar discussion on another thread. I haven't seen any document that gives a definite answer. But IMO, being a provincial nominee comes with responsibilities.
One of the poster suggested - contact the governing body to get a credible answer.
I have copied a couple of highlights regarding PNP even though they are on another province:
here is a reply from manitoba provincial nomination office.
Permanent Residents who receive their status as Manitoba Provincial
Nominees make a legal declaration that they intend to establish
successfully in the Province of Manitoba and are expected to make a
reasonable effort to do so. Applicants who do not make a reasonable
effort to establish successfully in Manitoba may be considered by the
Government of Canada to have provided false information on their
And then some specific response to the particular person such as:
Since you have only recently arrived in Manitoba, please note that it
can take most newcomers at least 6 months to a year to establish
successfully in any part of Canada. The government of Manitoba funds
settlement and employment services especially for newcomers. One of our
settlement officers would be happy to connect you with some of these
services. Please call 945 6300 to make an appointment to see Cynthia
Stewart or David Rice-Lampert to discuss your situation in more detail.

Here is my final contribution on this matter this is culled from the New Brunsick PNP site :
If I am successful in immigrating to New Brunswick through the Nominee Program, how long do I have to stay in the province?
The New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program is intended only for people genuinely interested in living and working in New Brunswick.
Any immigrant who has been nominated under the Nominee Program is fully expected to reside, work and conduct business in New Brunswick and become a permanent resident of this province. Any failure to comply with this Nominee Program requirement will be considered a breach of contract and a serious misrepresentation of facts in the application process. It is an offence under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act to knowingly make a false or misleading statement in support of an application for permanent residence in Canada . Doing so can result in a two-year ban from entering Canada .
I hope that the matter of whether you can use the PNP program just to gain access to Canada and then abandon the province in question as soon as you enter can be finally laid to rest. I continue to maintain that you should be worried enough to call the immigration office and confirm.
Hello pexers. Question po, I'm an AINP and 1 year pa lang ako dito sa Alberta. May job offer kasi ako pero sa ibang province. Pwede na ba akong lumabas at magwork outside of alberta? Is there any ruling that if you are a provincial nominee that you should stay in the province that nominated you for 2 or 3 years? Kung may answer or link kayo about this, paki post na lang po.
I have another dilemma..this is my situation.
I got married last january, and the marriage contract wont be out till after 6 months which is on july. We do have the certified true copy of the marriage certificate, is that enough na ba? Kase I want to send my application on july 1 para mauna, kase yung slots for nurses are filled up super fast. And 1 more thing, is it ok that I dont change my surname in my passport muna kase it will take another month if i do that.
Hope someone could help me out.
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/pdf/kit...s/IMM5610E.PDF the checklist is there so find out what it says. i know u have to submit everything except police clearance, they have a note there in the checklist that says it can be late but as for the certified copy of your marriage contract, you can try submitting it but if they return your application packet due to lack of documents, sayang naman binayad mo sa Fedex. but of course u can always try to submit what you have then just make a formal letter na yun lang kasi ang binigay sayo na copy ng marriage contract & tell them na u will submit the original as soon as u get it. goodluck.
passport with visa stamped is returned ,what's next?
you need to schedule a pre-departure seminar with the above agency. after the seminar, a cfo sticker will be attached. they claim that without this sticker, you will not be allowed to depart; but based on personal experience, hindi naman tinignan. anyway, no harm in complying with it.
after this, you're pretty much set to go. make sure you are able to land on or before the expiry date of your visa.
need ba ng malaking amount na traveler's cheque?
it's not advisable to hand carry all your settlement funds with you. baka mawala. just make sure you have ready access to it (bank transfer, atm). i was never asked to show proof of funds at immigration but some of the Pexers had that experience.
just make sure you have enough dollars on hand for the first couple of weeks.
i didn't use traveller's checks at all. just US $ na pinapalitan ko at the airport and when i opened an account at Scotia Bank when we got here.
good luck on your move to Canada
Hi pexers, hope someone would answer my very basic question. Ako kasi ang nagaasikaso ng visa requirements ng mom ko. She'll be applying her Live-In Caregiver visa sa italy since don sya nagwowork ngayon.
My question is, magkaiba ba talaga yung "Employment Contract Template" sa "LMO"????
Ang meron palang kami ngayon is the Employment Contract Template eh.
Kasi I'm filling out the form IMM1295 and may field don na kailangan na ng LMO#.
Thank you so much in advance! =))
just recently got our canadian immigrant visa and are given till august to leave for canada. originally we wanted our kids to travel with us for the initial landing. but to be very practical about it, we're thinking of leaving our kids first and let their immigrant visa expire.
our plan is for me and my wife to land in canada first so as not to let the visa expire, and then wife will stay in canada since i have to go back to work here in the philippines.
the kids originally were to fly back here in the philippines with me because they both are enrolled already so they need to come back.
i'm thinking since wife and me will still maintain our canadian permanent resident status, it will be easier in the future to re-apply our kids immigrant visas when we finally decide to stay in canada for good. with this plan, we're going to save on the plane tickets for the kids.
can you comment on our plan. and do you see unforseen negative repurcussions that we failed to consider?
thanks in advance.
Hi there! I registered for a PEXER account so I could just reply to your case.
Personally, I don't think what you're proposing is a very good idea.
I suggest that you all land at the same time and you alone return to the Philippines. The kids can be easily enrolled in Canada and the quicker they get settled, the better. In my experience, the younger the kids, the quicker they adjust to Canadian life and the more chances they'll be successful in the end. Like most people, I think you're migrating to Canada for a better future, especially for your kids. So why defer this process? Believe me, the kids will be fine!
If you don't let your kids land with you and your wife, you'd be taking a gamble. Sponsorship rules may change, highly unlikely, but one never knows. But, as they say, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Maybe others with a first-hand experience can jump in.
In my opinion, I think you should just bite the bullet and not return to the Philippines. It will be a struggle, at first. But, you're all going to be on the same boat and share the experience with the entire family. Depending on your field, it might take time to "upgrade" your credentials to Canadian standards. So, you're not doing yourself a favour by putting this off. Just take a leap of faith! It will be extremely hard and deflating at times. But, don't give up. You'll get there.
