1. A Money order from a bank in Taiwan is sufficient? Do you need to request anything specific?
2. Do I really need anything from the Canadian Trade Office? From my understanding (based on http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cr-cj/fing-empr2-eng.htm), I can submit a fingerprint form provided by a local police station (here in Zhongli) and provide the rest of my details on a separate piece of paper. I don't want to have to go up to Taipei if it's not necessary.
by the way, I just read on Ottawa's TECO site that they require a notarized and authenticated copy of the applicant's passport in order to be authenticated.
So I do have to go up to the Canadian Consulate in Taipei to get a photocopy of my passport notarized, then over to BOCA to get it authenticated, then mail that to my sister in Canada, then have her mail my criminal record check from the RCMP along with my notarized and authenticated passport photocopy over to the TECO office in Ottawa. IS this correct? Is this what you guys did?

This doesn't sound familiar to me. Can you show me where on the website you found this? I didn't have any notarizing or authenticating done at the Canadian trade office at all. The only part they had in me getting my APRC was handing me my fingerprints form.

Also, it looks like you have the option of sending your actual passport instead.
however... now for the waiting time. RCMP's website says 4 weeks for a processing time, but recorded message over the phone last night said 10 weeks, and I just read a post on another forum where people are posting about waiting times of 5 months or longer! (these posts are from November and December 2011)
hopefully the website is the most accurate... anyone have current info on processing times that are better than 5 months.. please do reply. Would love to hear it!
