    Thank you so much for putting the time and effort for those short video explanations for the forms and the blog. They give good pointers to give the necessary information so that the immigration officer can make an informed decision.

    I have a question, amongst other. I recently got married (May 11th, 2013) to a friend that I met while I went to The Gambia, Africa back in 2009. I brought with me the documents that she would need to fill out in order to sponsor her to come to Canada after our marriage. She designated me as her representative using the form IMM 5476. I filled out the forms on the computer as she is not computer literate. Once I came back to Canada, I realized that I made some mistakes. Since she had designated me as her representative, I thought that maybe I could correct the mistakes that I made. I asked two friends and one said that it was better to fill out new forms and get her to sign them and return them to me. Another said that since she designated me as her representative that I could make the corrections. I also included this information (that I made mistakes on some of the forms) in a letter to include in the package. What do you suggest?

    Thank you for your time and help.

    Another question about this particular form IMM1344 is that the CIC website said that the application (sponsored spouse etc) does not need to sign her part if she is planning on residing in Quebec which we will be since I work and live in Montreal, Qc. What are the potential impacts of her not signing the document?

    Thank you once more.
