"Queerie" For You . . . .

Here's a question for you current and future Canadian Permanent Residents:

Are the CIC people in charge of assessing the applications for PR status
located in US visa offices - Seattle, Detroit, New York, etc. - citizens of the US or Canada?

I'm assuming they are Canadian citizens assigned to these offices, but does anyone have evidence of this?

Would it make a difference in their attitudes towards US citizens attempting to leave the US?

Any thoughts??

They aren't always Canadian citizens. I haven't heard of this being a problem in the U.S. It can be a problem in other countries where applicants are at risk if they come out. In these cases it's possible to ask that a Canadian officer review the application.

Thanks for the info, deb!

I guess I've always assumed that they were Canadian, but I don't have anything to back that up. Good questions ...
