I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions or some similar experience.
We sent the application on Feb 20th registered to CPC Mississauga. On Canada Post tracking site it shows it is in Mississauga customs waiting to be reviewed since Feb 26th. After numerous calls I finnaly spoke with Canada post and customs. Canada Post says it is in customs. Customs in Mississauga claim they didn't even open the letter and sent it of on the next day. I don't know who to call now. I started an investigation in my home countrys post office, but it will take weeks before I get an answer. Do you think CPC-M will tell me if they received it, or do I have to wait for another month?
I don't want to move to April 2012 thread
You can call Canada Post and ask them to prioritize your complaint. Eventually, it should arrive at the CPC-M.
I sent my app through registered post to CPC-M and it was delivered the next day. There was no signature on delivery but tracking shows that it was successfully delivered. I realized later that the postman cannot get signature when it is delivered to a post office box, especially for busy boxes like the one of CPC-M. Sending it through a courier on the street address of CPC-M is the best option. Their street address is not posted on their guidance but posted on another web page because they like people to use the P.O.box address only.
From my experience, customs take a long time but I am sure that the mail eventually will be received. The problem that the CPC-M won't send you acknowledge of receipt AOR. They just put it in the queue and you will hear from two months after the receipt to tell you are approved or not. It sounds you are trapped or got caught in the mid of no way as you feel that you cannot call CPC-M or do anything else. This is the main problem in dealing with the immigration system in this country. JUST WAIT. This can lead to excessive thinking and anxiety that might ruin many things in your personal life.
