Yeah guys , i also encourage you to call CIC even if you are a 31st october applicant i think they have finalized the october cases but has not yet updated on the website , insist on getting an update and you will definitely know something , i called them twice , the first time in French and the second time in English they all informed me that i have been approved and the file sent abroad , i should just wait for the mail to come by post so , try if you can to have an update on your case
Good luck to us.!!
Do not believe every word the call center people tell you. Call several times and you will get different answers. They are very nice and professional, but at times will just say 2 keywords, "just wait".
What is sure is that your calls are recorded, and that every time you make an unnecessary follow up, your file is moved to the end of the cue in processing. The new date/timeline is automatically computer generated (they just have to answer yes or no to confirm the change...they have different heart colors), so that even if they are done with you, there will be no official release of results until such date.
The rule on follow-up is clear on the website, and oftentimes mentioned in their letters. But if the reason for calling is very valid and urgent, it will surely help.
