I would be very interested to know the difference in applying for ROC Citizenship starting from the PARC (as opposed to starting out with an ARC).
This is because (at least according to my initial enquiries) getting a PARC is almost as much hassle as going the whole way to acquire ROC Citizenship. Having provided my police record from the UK (for my PARC application) - a major hassle with counter-stamps etc., - it does seem superfluous that I should have to repeat all these steps again. I have heard rumours that it is not necessary.
Anyone out there gone down this route? of course the requirements provided by the HR dept. are wonderfully vague, and I wold not be surprised if they unwittingly made me go through all that hassle again, when it might not be required. Be grateful for any advice anyone can offer on this front.
