Ever Wanted to Read Deleted Messages on WhatsApp?

A few months ago, WhatsApp introduced this Crazy feature of letting people at deleting their messages, not just for them but for the recipient as well.

When someone deletes a message, you only get to know that the message has been deleted. If you were ever curious to know what was the bloody message that got deleted, read on for the to know about it.

Check deleted messages on WhatsApp

Whenever you receive a message on WhatsApp, you get a notification for it, if you haven’t muted the notifications for the particular contact or group.

Even though, WhatsApp has the ability to withdraw the notifications when the messages deleted by the sender, but if you use a third party app that saves a lot of notification, WhatsApp does not have control over the third party app to delete the notification.

Which means, if the deleted WhatsApp message is a text message, you will be able to read the messages using the notification history app.

One such app is Notif Log Notification History, you can install it from the Play Store.

  • Once we install the application, open the app, and it app ‘Enable’ at the bottom of the screen.
  • Then you will have to allow the app to access your notifications.
  • You can then select insert the apps for which you want to record the notification data.

Once you have set up this app, you will be able to go to the app and read the message even if it has been deleted by the sender.

Sadly, since the Notif Log Notification app does not catch Image files, you won’t be able to get the video or images that have been deleted by the sender.

Limitations:

There are a few limitations, however, as only the messages that have generated a notification on the device, and have been seen or interacted with, can be retrieved. In this case, interaction also refers to swiping away the original notification, whether in the notification bar or a floating message – in which case you’ve also probably seen at least a part of the original message when swiping away. The notification log only saves the messages on the device until it’s restarted. Once restarted, we noticed that the log was cleared.

Moreover, the method has a restriction that only the first 100 characters of the deleted message will be visible. The feature is available only for users running Android 7.0 and above. Users can only retrieve text which means any kind of media file cannot be recovered.

How to get a job in Canada for Immigrants and Newcomers

Last Updated: 8th Nov, 2018
Are you new to Canada, or thinking of immigrating here for a job? You need to know how to get a job in Canada. Also you should know that employers here might ask if you have “Canadian Work Experience.”
This may sound like an odd question. There you are, coming from outside our country. You may have years of work experience and proper credentials from your homeland. Yet that may not be enough to convince Canadian employers of your worth.
So what is “Canadian Experience” and how can you get it (or get around it)? Read on for more.

What Do Employers Mean By “Canadian Experience?”

According to Jeffrey Lee, Employment Specialist /Practicum Coordinator at CDI College in Burnaby, British Columbia, “Employers look for Canadian workplace experience so that employees are familiar with workplace culture, social cues, and expectations.”
Since different cultures may have different ways of handling situations, “newcomers with ‘Canadian workplace experience’ are seen as being more capable of getting along with the workgroup,” adds Lee. He also notes that having your professional credentials and education authenticated here is important too.
There are other aspects to Canadian experience as well. Peter Dudka, Acting Program Manager, Transition to Employment Programs at Polycultural Immigrant & Community Services in Toronto, Ontario, points out that employers favour the following:
– Fluent English or French, depending on what province you are in. This is crucial. Accent is not an issue, but clear expression of ideas and understanding local terminology are what matter
– Local certification. Not necessarily a two year diploma or a Bachelor’s degree, but even the shortest course here that is relevant to the job will help you stand out from other job seekers
– Narrow specialization. Many newcomers instead offer (in resumes or during job interviews) wide experience and education, from which it is difficult to extract whether they can do that particular job or not.
Dudka adds to this list “the art of selling yourself, which is foreign to many newcomers in Canada. It is related to the previous point: you need to be able to clearly highlight your strengths in one particular field.”

How To Get “Canadian Experience”

No Canadian experience, no job. No job, no Canadian experience. It’s a conundrum that many thousands of newcomers face each year. Fortunately there are ways to overcome this obstacle.
Jeffrey Lee, who has helped internationally-trained professionals find employment, offers advice. “Many recent immigrants can start by volunteering with various charitable organizations, offering their expertise for a variety of projects.”
As well, Lee recommends attending a professional mentoring group where skilled immigrants are paired with local professional peers, to talk about how to prepare for entry into their desired occupation.  One such program in B.C. is from MOSAIC. He also suggests volunteering at businesses related to your profession, if they are open to this.
Peter Dudka suggests connecting with local agencies in Canada that offer free employment assistance to immigrants. “Through our agency, for example,” says Dudka, “we offer advanced English classes, work placements in Canadian companies, interview preparation courses and networking events with local employers.
If you happen to live in Quebec, you can get Canadian experience working in something called a Practice Firm. These are specially made businesses that only interact with one another. No actual money or salaries are involved. Practice Firms are training facilities that let you do specific jobs as if for real. There are 30 of these Firms in Quebec, and one in Ontario. A  list of these is available at the Canadian Practice Firms Network (CPFN).

Taking A Lower Level Job To Get “Canadian Experience”

To get your start in Canada, you may want to consider taking a lower level job here than you are used to. It could be quicker for you to get initial employment that pays less. While it may be a step down, it translates into Canadian experience. The truth is that this is a common approach for a good percentage of newcomers.

However be careful not to get stuck in a menial job that is hard to move upward from. It would be smart to consult directly with one of those local newcomer agencies mentioned above. They can advise you personally based on your circumstances and needs. Meanwhile, read Monster.ca articles on Working for Less: When It’s OK to Take a Pay Cut, and Should I Apply To A Job If I’m Overqualified?.

More About “Canadian Experience”

According to Jeffrey Lee, some industries such as IT (Information Technology, e.g. computing, software, telecommunications) may be less strict about where your experience is gained. Therefore this field might be easier to penetrate in Canada. At present, European-trained engineers may also have an easier time to get their credentials acknowledged than ones trained in Asia or the Middle East.
Other skilled immigrants can benefit from a program offered by the not-for-profit Allies, says Peter Dudka. Allies has created a National Mentoring Initiative in various cities across Canada. Mentoring offers a connection between a skilled immigrant and an established Canadian professional in the same or related occupation. It’s a way of helping skilled newcomers integrate into the workforce faster.

Working in this great country can be marvelous. There are all sorts of challenges and rewards for immigrants.

Getting your start here can be difficult, no doubt. It will make things easier if you’re prepared when the interviewer asks: “Tell us about your Canadian experience.”

Exclusive Guide – TFSA versus RRSP

TFSA versus RRSP

Even without the long acronyms, these two money saving products have a lot on common. Both investment vehicles offer tax incentives for savers and encourage you to plan for the future.

Here’s how these 2 options measure up against each other.

TFSA RRSP
Tax deductible? TFSA contributions are not tax-deductible.  So your contribution will not affect your taxable income in the year that you make a deposit. The contribution and investment earnings are exempt from taxation upon withdrawal. Money that you put towards your RRSP is tax deductible. It therefore reduces your taxable income in the year that you contribute.When you withdraw from your RRSP this money is added to your income and taxed at current rates.
Contribution limit You can invest up to $10,000 per calendar year in a TFSA. However, this may change as the new Federal Liberal government implements its new budget strategy. It’s a bit more complicated trying to figure out the maximum contribution limit for an RRSP without tax implications – It is dependent upon your previous year’s income and pension adjustments.  For more information, visit the Canada Revenue Agency.
Access You can access your money at any time. There are different types of RRSPs.  Locked-in RRSPs will not allow you to access your money until you hit a certain retirement age.  If your RRSP is not locked-in you can withdraw the funds at any time.Money that you withdraw from an RRSP will then be taxed in that year.
Taxes on withdrawal All of the money that you earn from your investment (i.e. interest, capital gains, etc) is tax free.
This means that your money can grow in the fund tax free and when you want to withdraw it, that income will also be tax free.
RRSPs are tax deductible and your portfolio grows tax sheltered.This means that you get the tax benefit when you put your money in.  When it comes time to withdrawing the funds, you will be taxed then.
Investment vehicles accepted A number of different investment vehicles qualify, including high interest savings accounts, GICs, bonds, mutual funds and stocks It can contain a variety of investments such as: RRSP savings deposits, treasury bills, GICs, mutual funds, bonds, and equities.
Beneficial for People who expect to be in a high tax bracket during retirement years. People who expect to be in a lower tax bracket during retirement years.
Minimum age limit You need to be 18 years of age and a Canadian resident to qualify No age restriction necessarily, but you do need to have generated RRSP contribution room by claiming earned income – which can be done by filing a tax return.
Maximum age limit There is no age limit. You are not eligible to contribute after the age of 71.
Benefits The money in your TFSA can be put towards whatever you’d like – there are no restrictions as to how or when you can use the money.
Also, unused contribution can be carried forward and accumulates in future years.
The tax benefits are immediate.  Also, come retirement age, you’ll be glad you put some extra money away

KEY TAKEAWAY

The main difference between an RRSP and TFSA is the timing of taxes:

  • An RRSP lets you defer taxes – an advantage if your marginal tax rate is lower in retirement.
  • With a TFSA, you’ve already paid tax on the money you contribute – an advantage if your marginal tax rate is higher when you withdraw the money.

1. Introduction

The article “Canada Beginners Guide to Personal Investment” covers simple “tips” for dummies or beginners on how to start your personal investments without hiring a financial consultant. This is the best article to learn how to Invest in Canada in 2018.

I assume you have a steady job and ready for investments. Big or small amount doesn’t matter. The important thing is that you need to start investing. Now, keep at it for the next four decades or so and you’ll be able to retire. Successful money management goes beyond just saving a portion of what you make. To really get the most out of your earnings, you’ll need to put it to work in a few choice investments.

2. Investing For Beginners – Know Your Savings Goals

Not sure where to start? Whether you’re already planning for retirement, or saving up for another life milestone such as your first home, here are the basics for beginning investors.

3. RRSPs vs. TFSAs

Most Canadians are more familiar with Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs) than they are with Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs). This is in part because RRSPs have been around as a retirement savings’ vehicle for Canadians since 1957, and TFSAs only came into effect at the beginning of 2009.

Participating in both programs is similar in that you invest in a suite of options through your financial institution. But RRSPs get a boost from the fact that you get immediate tax savings (in the form of a deduction from your taxable income for the year in which they’re purchased). The tax-savings with TFSAs is that any money you earn on investments is non-taxable. (Down the road, when you do withdraw money from RRSPs, you’ll have to claim that as income at the time.)

While the upfront income tax savings from RRSPs may seem enticing, the fact is that if you’re just early in your career, and therefore making a relatively low income, you’re better off investing in TFSAs. Here’s why:

Let’s say you’re making a fairly low salary – the current national median income is $27,800 – and, you still manage to set aside $1,000 to invest. At the current minimum tax rate of 15 per cent, your tax-savings may only amount to a few dollars. But if you invest that $1,000 in a TFSA, it could grow significantly larger over time. A $1,000 investment that grew at five per cent a year would be worth $4,322 after 30 years.

If your career blossoms and you find yourself earning six-figures one day, you’ll be taxed at a rate of 26–29 per cent, making RRSP deductions a more-valuable consideration.

TFSAs also have another advantage over RRSPs in that you’re able to withdraw the funds whenever you want, without penalty. This makes them a useful savings vehicle for other big expenditures, such as the down payment on a house.

Keep in mind that both RRSPs and TFSAs offer the option of keeping your savings in cash, or investing them further in a GIC or stocks for further interest earning.

Check out this handy graph to learn more about RRSPs vs. TFSAs

4. Retirement Planning – CPP And Beyond

Current Canadian retirees benefit from two government-run pension programs: the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and Old Age Security (OAS). The maximum monthly CPP payment in 2013 is $1,012.50. The current maximum monthly payment for the OAS is $550.99. Add that up, and you’re looking at $1,563.49. That works out to $18,761.88 a year.

It’s save to say that most of us wouldn’t be able to survive on that alone.
And even that may not be available when you’re ready to retire; in the 2012 budget, the age of eligibility for receiving the OAS was moved from 65 to 67 years of age. This is the first of many anticipated changes to the federal pension programs to deal with the fact that Canadians are living longer, and there may not be enough younger ones in the workforce to support all the baby boomers through a lengthy retirement period. In short, the onus is on young people to plan on financing their own retirement funds.

5. Bonds – The Safe Bet

The downside with investments held within both RRSPs and TFSAs is that they’re tied to stock markets and the overall health of the economy. The general trend has been for these types of investments to grow over time, but major market crashes – such as occurred in 2008 – can have devastating effects on people’s investments. In fact, many Canadians had to modify their retirement plans when the economy tanked and took a good chunk of their nest egg with it.

The principal invested in a savings bond is guaranteed by the government, making them as close to you can get to a sure thing. But that safety comes at a price: the current series of federal savings bonds pay a mere one per cent interest on the first year of the investment. And you don’t get any interest if you cash them in before the year is up.

6. Playing The Stock Market

Investing directly in individual stocks is the area where you can make the biggest gains, or take the biggest losses. But for every seemingly never-ending stock rise (Google’s $85 initial IPO price in 2004 has soared to approximately $1,010 in November 2013) there’s a reminder such as one-time stock market darling Research in Motion of how quickly things can change for the worse. RIM reached a high of more than $140 a share in 2008, but had dipped to less than $14 a share in 2013. You’ll also have to factor in brokerage fees for every transaction you make.

7. Conclusion

Different strategies work for different investors and different situations. An investor might employ more than one strategy, or choose a variety of investment vehicles depending upon their goals.

So, have a plan and a strategy.

Just like going on trip in your car, it is important that investors have a plan and a destination in mind before investing their money. Your goals—whether planning for retirement or buying a home—dictate your time horizon, which dictates your tolerance for risk. Additionally, you want to make sure that you diversify your investments so that some do well when the rest of your portfolio might not. This approach allows an investor to construct a portfolio that is in line with their risk tolerance and that balances potential return with some downside risk protection.

Hopefully this article has provided some insights and good ideas as you invest for your future.

Your journey is just beginning, however, your challenge is to keep learning and stay informed.

The world’s first fully painted feature film! Loving Vincent

Worlds-First-Oil-Painted-Film

 

Moment from the film ‘Loving Vincent’ in which each frame consists of an individual oil painting. Total of 65,000 frames were made and approximately 125 artists painted the movie frame by frame.

Loving Vincent is the world’s first fully painted feature film produced by Oscar-winning studios Breakthru Films and Trademark Films.

Biopics are a dime a dozen come award season, but Loving Vincent, about iconic Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh, stands apart from the field as the world’s first-ever fully painted full-length movie.

In a category known for featuring children’s films, Loving Vincent is comparatively gritty fare, telling the dark story of the artist’s final days. Though Van Gogh is thought to have committed suicide, the movie explores the possibility that he might actually have been murdered.

This movie totally got robbed of the best animated feature Oscar. Unfortunately, nobody saw Loving Vincent and everybody saw Coco.

Synopsis

A year after the death of the artist, Vincent van Gogh, Postman Roulin gets his slacker son, Armand, to hand deliver the artist’s final letter to his now late brother, Theo, to some worthy recipient after multiple failed postal delivery attempts. Although disdainful of this seemingly pointless chore, Armand travels to Auvers-sure-Oise where a purported close companion to Vincent, Dr. Gachet, lives. Having to wait until the doctor returns from business, Armand meets many of the people of that village who not only knew Vincent, but were apparently also models and inspirations for his art. In doing so, Armond becomes increasingly fascinated in the psyche and fate of Van Gogh as numerous suspicious details fail to add up. However, as Armond digs further, he comes to realize that Vincent’s troubled life is as much a matter of interpretation as his paintings and there are no easy answers for a man whose work and tragedy would only be truly appreciated in the future.

Top Biggest Mistakes Startups Make

startup_mistakes
As a fellow entrepreneur, I’ve had my share of business success and failure. At the end of the day, I believe that failure is just as important as success, as it teaches you what to do, or not to do, next time.

That said, there’s nothing wrong with seeking out advice, especially when you’re new to the game.

If you’re a startup or toying with the idea of bringing a new product to market, here’s a look at seven big mistakes that startups tend to make. Avoid these whoppers and save yourself from having to learn everything the hard way!

1. Skipping The Business Plan

I realize it’s 2018. But a good old-fashioned business plan is just as important now, as ever. This doesn’t mean that it needs to be contained in a three-ringed binder of yore, but it does mean taking time to run the numbers, create your identity, and develop your sales and marketing plans –and target milestones. If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll have a hard time getting there. A business plan will help to keep you on track. Plus, if you’re hoping to secure funding, you’ll need this.

2. Not Accurately Gauging Interest

Yeah, I know. You’re in love with your product/idea/brilliant innovation. But is anyone else? Besides your mom? While bringing a new product to market is hard, bringing a product that will have little demand is even harder. In fact it’s soul-destroying. Don’t do it unless you’re certain it’s going to be well-received.

3. Not Defining Your Target Market

Before you launch a product into the ether simply hoping for the best, you’re going to need to run some numbers and create an accurate projection of how well that product will perform. Your first step in this journey is pinpointing your exact target market. Without a clear idea on WHO you’re marketing to, and what, exactly they’re interested in, you’re going to have a hard time pitching and promoting your product. Trust me, it’s hard to sell something when your audience isn’t even sure they want it.

4. Forgoing All Advertising Efforts

It’s 2018. These days, we need online advertising to succeed. The truth is there’s only so much that you can do with organic reach and word of mouth. At the end of the day, if you want to grow significantly, you’re going to need to pay to play, and invest in a Facebook/Instagram/Google ad campaign. Fortunately, ads have come a long way in recent years, and today, it’s easy enough to create a campaign that’s extremely targeted; drastically increasing your response rate. This is another reason why it’s important to know your audience. If you don’t, you won’t be able to reach them very well.

5. Pretending That You Don’t Have Competition

“I don’t have competition, I’m in a league all of my own.” I hear it often. Don’t fool yourself though, you have competition, just like everyone else. The secret to rising above isn’t pretending it doesn’t exist, instead it’s about finding that chink in their armor. Where is your competition lacking? How can you offer more value? Most importantly, is that value something that your customers actually care about? If you have a definitive answer, then by all means continue to pursue your business. But if you’re basically the same, but slightly different, then I’d tread carefully.

6. Ignoring The Elephant In The Room

You know what I’m talking about –that looming threat on the horizon that you’re uncomfortable about. This could be a strong competitor, waning interest in your product, shifting market conditions. Whatever it is, don’t ignore it in hopes that it’ll get better or go away. Because it won’t. You need to rerun the numbers and projections keeping this guy in mind. Years ago I started up an import business, but didn’t take into account rising oil prices. When oil went up, my profits went down and eventually the entire business model was no longer viable. Don’t ignore the elephant. Always keep it in mind when formulating your attack plan.

7. Being Stuck

As a startup, being flexible is key to survival. This doesn’t mean that you should flake out every 5 minutes, but it does mean being able to change direction when the winds change. Take Nokia, for example. They were a paper mill when they first started out. Or Sony. They sold rice cookers. Don’t be so in love with an idea that you’re blind to other opportunities. As a startup, your ability to pivot and flexibility is your strength. Think on your toes, make changes when you need to, and keep your eyes and ears open. Always have a backup plan.

If all of this sounds like a lot of hard work, that’s because it is. Success as a startup isn’t easy and it’s not getting any easier. But the truth is that big things rarely happen to those who are content to sit and wait. Instead, success is the result of a hard and difficult pursuit. It’s not always easy, but I believe that it’s worth it. With the above suggestions, you’ll already be 500 miles ahead of all the other guys out there.

Agree? Disagree? Any questions, hit me up.

Simple Artwork to Relieve Stress

Amaterasu Best Drawing and Painting

Amaterasu Omikami (‘the great divinity illuminating heaven’) is the sun goddess, the most important deity of the Shinto religion and ruler of Takama no Hara (the High Celestial Plain), the domain of the kami or spirits.

Also known as Oho-hir-me-no-muchi or Amaterasu-oho-hiru-me, Amaterasu is the daughter of Izanami and Izanagi who made their daughter ruler of the sky. When her father Izanagi escaped from his visit to the underworld he had to perform a cleansing ritual in the river Woto and it was then, from the god’s left eye, that Amaterasu was born. She is also the elder sister of Susanoo (or Susa-no-wo) the storm god. Amaterasu constantly quarrelled with her mischievous younger brother and finally having enough, she exiled him from heaven.

How to relieve stress using Art

Ever heard that you can use the benefits of art to express your creative side and also to reduce stress? Yes, it’s true that creating Artwork can really minimize anxiety and lift your mood.

So next time when you are stressed, maybe your answer could lie in the pages of a sketchbook. Don’t worry, everyone is not good at art and to be honest, it doesn’t really matter.

Wondering Why??? Okay, let me explain. Even if you are NOT good at sketching, or artwork, you can simply color Pictures that Can help Relieve Anxiety. In this technique, no Drawing Skills are Necessary.

We all understand and current medical studies also show how chronic stress negatively impacts health, potentially compromising numerous systems in the body leaving us more vulnerable to a lot of health issues. So, here are TOP proven techniques of creating artwork that can reduce stress:

1. Drawing to have a relaxation response.

Grab a pencil or sketch-pen. The repetitive and rhythmic motion of drawing helps synchronize hand and eye, body and mind, and can be used as a relaxation response.

Drawing is a right side brain activity, while stress occurs in the left side of the brain, since it is what handles logic and emotional aspects of your life. When you draw it shifts activity to the right side of the brain, which is the creative side, relieving stress and thoughts that the right brain is placing on you.  It is very rewarding to create a sketch or painting.

Drawing is similar to meditation, but in a more “productive” form.

2Release Emotion onto your page.

Without intending to draw anything in particular, simply apply your drawing utensil to a blank sheet of paper. Close your eyes. Focus on whatever emotions you’re feeling and would like to get rid off. Allow your emotion, not your mind, to dictate the movement of the pen, pencil or sketch-pen. Whatever comes out on the page is simply an expression of what you’re feeling.

Try this and you will definitely feel a lot more relaxed.

3Realize that the WORLD isn’t perfect, but it’s colorful.

The most beautiful things in this world have character and experience built into them. Imagine drawing the various shades of a morning sunshine, the dark side of night, or a budding flower. With artwork, you will realize how beautiful this world is.

4. Share your Artwork

An exquisite piece of artwork can easily be shared and bring a “smile” to the person who’s admiring it.

Canada PPR – Easy Step by Step Process – Express Entry

Canada.png

 

Ever wondered how to apply for Canada PR? This article lists all the important information including latest changes in Canadian Immigration.

Express Entry was launched by the Canadian government in 2015 to make it easier for skilled workers to obtain legal permanent residency status. The Express Entry system takes place online, allowing candidates to fill out profiles with their language skills, age, job experience, education, transferable skills, spousal qualifications, and more. The profiles are assigned points, and then matched with high-demand labour fields. Applicants with the highest scores are invited to apply for the Canadian permanent residence visa. The visa will be processed in six months, which is much faster than other immigration routes.

Step 1: Find out if you’re eligible

There are two ways to find out if you’re eligible for a program that is part of Express Entry:

Step 2 – Online Profile

Applicants must begin online, where they create a profile. Once you have registered your online profile, you will be registered with the Job Match account. This is a job bank that helps employers connect with prospective applicants. You can begin searching for a job right away.

Step 3 – Document Checklist

In order to properly score your application, the system will need relevant documentation. To that end, the system will generate a personal document checklist. Mandatory documents at this stage include birth certificates, marriage and divorce certificates, evidence of common law marriage, adoption and custody records, job offer letters, proof of educational credentials such as a CV or resume, proof of work experience, digital photos, and proof of funds. Some people will also be asked to provide medical exam or other special documents. You will also need to send your Educational Credential Assessment, or ECA, along with language test results, to the CIC.

Step 4 – Scoring

The Express Entry tool will rank you with the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), which is a points-based system that will give you a numerical score. The CIC will invite applicants with the highest scores in the pool to apply for permanent residency.

There are no minimum points required for Express Entry. However, CRS scoring is transparent. A person will receive points for the following factors:

  • Age: the maximum score is 110 points if the applicant is between 20 and 29 years’ old
  • Education level: the maximum score is up to 150 points for a PhD
  • Language proficiency: up to 160 points for proficiency in English and French
  • Canadian work experience: the maximum score is 80 points for people with five years of experience
  • Skill transferability: the maximum score is 100 points
  • Education of spouse/partner: up to 10 points
  • Language proficiency of spouse/partner: up to 20 points
  • An additional 600 points are available if a person is nominated through the Canada Provincial Nominee Program after receiving a job offer or graduating from a post-secondary institution in Canada.
  • Siblings: in 2017, CRS was changed to award up to 15 points if you have at least one sibling living in Canada.

Step 5 – Invitation to Apply

If your score was high enough to be selected from the applicant pool, you will receive an invitation to apply (ITA). Within 90 days of notification you must submit a completed electronic application for permanent residence. Most complete applications can be completed in six months or less.

Remaining in the Pool or Reapplying

If you are not invited to submit an application for permanent residence, you can still remain in the pool for up to 12 months, as long as you continue to meet the criteria for at least one of the federal immigration programs. If your situation changes or you acquire new skills, you should update your profile.

If the CIC does not invite you to apply for permanent residence within this timeframe, you can start over with a new profile. Assuming you continue to meet the criteria, you will be re-entered into the pool, where you can try your luck again.
