CAIPS is short for 'Computer Assisted Immigration Processing System'. It is the computer system historically used by Citizenship & Immigration Canada to process visa applications, and holds all the information on the current status of every immigration application being processed by overseas offices (i.e. those outside of Canada), other than new applications at offices which have switched to using the 'GCMS' system.
GCMS is short for 'Global Case Management System', and is a newer computer system that CIC are rolling out across their offices.
To order you can do it free if you live in Canada (I am not sure how) or you can use a service like the one belowhttp://caipsnotes.com/index.shtml
