Just back from ten days of relaxing in the country, I am dying to check the Buffalo Consulate website to see if there have been any updates, I click on the link and... nothing.
Applications to emigrate to Canada from the US are processed at the Candian Consulate in Buffalo, NY. Buffalo's website had a page called "status of applications", on which it said something like: "We are now creating applications from forms received in in May, 2004 ... We are now processing applications created in October 2003." This was my only clue of how long the current wait time is. And they took it away! Now what will I obsess over?
Of course the status of our application is only channel one of my three-pronged obsessions. The other two? Do you even have to ask?
