Complete applications received means applications which have passed the completeness check. I doubt any of the new applications have had their eligiblity review completed yet.
Agree with Wayne. The "What happens next" info is on CIC's website: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/guides/EG77.asp
(Following info taken from website:)
Citizenship and Immigration Canada reviews your application to make sure that:
* all required fields in your application forms are complete,
* all required documents are submitted from Document Checklist (IMM 5612), and
* the correct processing fee payment has been made
If your application is:
* incomplete or;
* the occupation you are applying under has reached the allowable limit under category 1,
your entire package (including your payment) will be returned to you with a letter explaining why it is being returned.
An officer will make an final determination of eligibility of your application to determine whether:
* your application qualifies for processing under one of the two categories described in the Ministerial Instructions
If your application does not qualify for processing under the Ministerial Instructions you will be sent a letter that:
* provides the reason why your application is not eligible for processing
* confirms that a refund for the processing fee will be issued
Selection and Admissibility
If your application is eligible for processing, your application will be assessed against the following requirements:
* minimal requirements
* selection factors
* sufficient funds
* admissibility (criminality, security, medical)
* If your score is equal to or greater than the pass mark, your application will be sent to the visa office for further processing.
All applicants must undergo a medical examination.
You and your family members, whether they will be accompanying you or not, must undergo and pass a medical examination. To pass the medical examination you or your family members must not have a condition that:
* is a danger to public health or safety, or
* would cause excessive demand on health or social services in Canada.
Examples of “excessive demand” include ongoing hospitalization or institutional care for a physical or mental illness.
If you meet the selection criteria, you will receive medical forms for yourself (and any family members), and instructions on how to access a list of doctors in your area who are authorized to conduct immigration medical examinations (see below). You cannot undergo the medical examination before you submit your application forms.
The medical examination results are valid for 12 months from the date of the first medical examination. If the processing of your application for permanent residence is not completed during this time, you will have to undergo another complete medical examination.
Your own doctor cannot do the medical examination. You must be examined by a physician on Canada's list of Designated Medical Practitioners which can be found at:www.cic.gc.ca/dmp-md/medical.aspx
Note: The physician is only responsible for conducting a medical examination; he or she cannot give you any advice on the immigration process.
