When they receive your email, will get back an email stating


“You have reached the Ottawa FPU inbox. Please be assured that your
pending case is being processed and you will be notified as quickly as
possible. Please do not send multiple status update requests as this
will only further delay the review process.

Please make sure you give a heads up to your company and client about your interview

DONOT send .RAR or .ZIP files. Attach all your pay stubs individually and send them over.


221(g) white means they need more additional information. BE STRONG. It won’t take too long.Per-diem and license didn’t play a role in my scenario. All my paystubs had Per-diem.


Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Hope this information helps someone.


Thanks a ton again!!
