Hello fellow applicants! Just wondering how everyone's timeline is looking. I did my interview and got the results 4 months ago, but no email or phone call for psy evaluation yet. Should I be contacting the CBSA about it, or am I just being impatient here?
I'm still waiting for my Psych and I got the interview results back in July. I don't mind a log wait, but this is starting to feel like it's going to be a 4 year process for me.. lol..

I passed my interview this month, and i emailed them for the psy assessment schedule, they replied me they are treating a large volumes of psy request, and recommend me to complete the PARE asap.

:((

Since I am living out of Canada now, I wish to take the PARE and the psy around the same time to save the flight $$$
Really they recommended the PARE asap? I was holding off on that till at least after the psych as this is turning into a really long process and I'm trying to avoid my PARE expiring before I'm done... But that makes me wonder if they might give someone who passed the PARE priority overall someone that has not?

I’m thinking the same thing too...........

I’m thinking to take PARE in Jan 2020, but then I’m afraid they ask me for psy around that time so I have to buy another flight tix again 😂.......

Hopefully they give you enough notice for your Pysch.. there always that chance that when you do your Pysch there won’t be an open spot to run the PARE somewhere, where would your interview be if you dont mind me asking
