That makes total sense. The sponsor should call and see if he can get a client ID so you can see the first stage progress. Your specific application is to get PR in Canada, and without first stage approval, of course it is in "received" status.
Since they received your PR application, this may imply the first stage sponsor approval application is in progress.
Thanks for the reply chufamily,
We called the CIC this morning at which point they informed us that they are working on (guess...) April Applications and that when they begin to process our application they'll send us a letter with my husband's (my sponsor's) client ID, then we can check ECAS.
However, we all know they are processing applications waaay after April!! I guess they haven't gotten to October yet?!
I messaged micanada who informed me their application was originally sent in August then additional info was needed which was received November and then they got word back in Feb.
So perhaps the others which are on the spreadsheet as having their application's received in October or November are actually the dates their additional info (signatures, docs, payment and etc.) were received? Which would be 3 months after their original date of the application received. Which would mean mine is on schedule for August or September AIP...? Does that make sense?
Hi! Did you include email add in your application as well as your sponsor? If so, check the junk mail sometime it goes there. If its not there then ask your sponsor to call the cic because they will ask personal question to verify the identity For sure they will give it to him. I Saw some post from the past that they never heard anything from the cic till the last month of approval so dont be worry. Just stay calm! I hope everything is ok! Trust the only one above!
Thank you for your reply xxpazaway,
Yes, we did include both of our e-mail addresses in the application. Last week I told my husband to check his spam box (which he actually didn't do until today
!!!) and noticed it is set to auto delete all spam messages every 30 days
Sooo he very well could have received an e-mail which is now lost... However, (as I stated above and you confirmed with your previous message) they'll probably contact us via mail in August or September as August will be 11 months from when the Application was received so at that point we should be at LEAST in process if not getting the first stage of approval and my Open Work Permit. Does this sound right?
xxpazaway, I see on the spreadsheet your application was received October 11 and began being processed December 28 in Hamilton, Ontario. Did you receive a letter/e-mail from the CIC with the applicant & sponsors client Ids etc, stating your application is now in process... if any at all? Or did you find out through ECAS? It looks like Ontario is processing faster than Vegreville good for you
Thank you both again for your timely replies! I look forward to hearing your and others' thoughts on these new developments.
Best of luck to all!!!
