A officer at Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) provided the following information in correspondence he sent to the Research Directorate on 30 October 2006:
The photograph appearing on the Confirmation of Permanent residence IMM-5292 is supplied by the client. When a call-in notice is sent to the client inviting them to a Permanent Resident interview, they are instructed to provide 2 photographs at this interview and an instruction sheet on photograph specification is attached.
. . .
Please note that if a photograph is initially accepted at the Permanent Residence interview by an immigration officer who deems it to meet the specifications, and then the photograph is later rejected by Case Processing centre (Sydney, NS), which manufactures the Permanent Resident cards, the client is then called in to the local CIC office and the photo is retaken there.
Copies of the call-in notice and of the photo specifications that were sent by the CIC officer are attached.
This Response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the Research Directorate within time constraints. This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim for refugee protection.
