Steps following invitation for PR - timeliness
I got my nomination certificate from Alberta last Friday and have until Aug 18th to confirm or reject. I know that once I accept, invitation for PR will be certain but I also know that you get 60 days to complete the application and submit papers. I have a family trip from Sep 27 to Oct 10 in which I will probably not be able to work on the application so I want to make sure work out the timing correctly. Should I accept the nomination now or wait until near the due date so I can have time to work it out once I return? I understand you need to get a medical and criminal record (and translations) and that may take some time here.
Also, i know draws happen around every 2 weeks (maybe next one is this Wed?)
Thanks in advance for any support and guidance.
