I completed my 1095 days on 5th May 2015 and it was according to their website.

I prepared my application on same day and sent via courier.

It was received and stamped on 12th May.

I also paid my full fees online through CIC website and they cleared my payment.

They have kept my application with them and only returned yesterday with objection that I apply again and provide 6 years my passport details and apply on new forms.

This letter they prepared dated 10th June.They could not find any other objection to say it is incomplete.

This is higly unfair.

Can you advise me what should I do as new Rules C24 is not applicable to me as I already completed 1095 days and I sent a print out from their website calculator.

I wonder no body is going to ask the staff what they are doing?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that this would be very frustrating for you.

It may be helpful if you dial 211 for free on your phone and speak to an Information and Referral Specialist. You can ask them if they can refer you to the nearest Community Legal Clinic that provides services related to immigration, for some assistance.

211 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

It may also be helpful to contact the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) Call Centre for some additional clarification regarding what exactly this letter means.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.

Thank you for all those who helped me what to do now,As suggested by legal advice and my other friends that I should resend the application and highlight that I meet and qualified as per previous rules.
Consequently I have received acknowledgement that my application has been received and now I can view my application status on line.
Thank you Anna and other friends who encouraged me to continue pursuing my case.
