Dear All who have been waiting long for medicals or after passport submission please not that background checks can take many months to complete. If you haven't heard anything for long don't assume something is wrong with your application. It is their usual procedure and some countries are listed as high risk countries where even a more vigorous check takes place. Please check the following link I found useful. Thanks.

http://www.rsscanadaimmigration.com/en/policertif/policec_exp.php

Security Clearance/ Background Checks

Background checks are carried out on every Permanent Resident applicant over the age of 18. These checks are used to identify criminals and known security threats (espionage, subversion or terrorism). To ensure that the protection and safety of Canada is maintained, various sources are consulted for the completion of background checks, including but not limited to visa application forms, intelligence information, criminal conviction records and immigration records.

Once all information is received, it is carefully reviewed to determine the likeliness that the applicant is a threat to Canadian security. If any questions or concerns arise a Security Interview will be scheduled in order that the Immigration Officer may discuss these findings with the applicant. Failure to pass the background check is grounds for an immediate refusal of the Permanent Resident Application.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) in conjunction with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) administers the background checks. Since Canadian officials confer with other governments, departments and/or organization it may take several months for the completion of the background checks.

A PERMANENT RESIDENT VISA CANNOT BE ISSUED UNTIL SUCH TIME AS THE BACKGROUND CHECKS ARE CLEARED.


Background checks can take many months to complete:

These is applicable on those who have been visited countries more that 6 months.?


OR

Who have been visited countries for just 4 to 7 days.?

OR

Who have been visited countries for just 4 to 7 days.

Starali it is valid for all who have visited less countries or more. It says it involves many agencies within Canada and  other intelligence agencies around the globe. Mainly your name is searched and information is gathered through different databases to look for a match. They also call it security clearance. For some countries like Pakistan it is more vigorous.  In my opinion it doesn't matter match if you have visited less countries or more. Thanks

Yes i checked on this forum there are many applicants who are waiting from last 8 to 14 months after submitting medicals.
Sad and doing again re-medicals. Sad

Alway pray.


Each Canadian Permanent Resident applicant over the age of 18 is required to provide proof that he/she has no criminal record. A police clearance must be obtained from every country where the applicant has resided for more than 6 months since their 18th birthday.

The official version of Jang news

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/media/releases/2012/2012-03-28.asp

Ottawa, March 28, 2012 – Canada is proposing a major change to how foreign skilled workers' education credentials are assessed, Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney announced today.

The proposed new requirement would mean that applicants wanting to immigrate as Federal Skilled Workers would have their foreign education credentials assessed and verified by designated organizations before they arrive in Canada.

“Our Government is building an immigration system that is focused on economic growth and ensuring that all Canadians, including immigrants, are able to contribute to their maximum capacity,” said Jason Kenney.  “By having their foreign education credentials assessed before their arrival to Canada, foreign skilled workers will have a better sense of how their credentials fit into the Canadian labour market and will be able to contribute their full skill set to the economy more quickly. This proposal is part of a broader package of transformational changes that will make Canada's immigration policies work better for the Canadian economy.”

A pre-arrival assessment would let applicants know how their education credentials compare to Canadian credentials and it will give immigrants a sense of how Canadian employers are likely to value their education. This will also screen out people without proper education levels and is an important step in helping to address the problem of immigrants arriving and not being able to work in their field.

The assessment of international educational credentials would not mean that Federal Skilled Workers would automatically find employment in Canada commensurate with their skills nor would it guarantee that they would become licensed to practice in a regulated occupation. Applicants who intend to work in a regulated profession would likely need to have their qualifications assessed in greater depth for purposes of licensure by a regulatory body specific to their profession and intended province of work.

“Internationally trained workers make an important contribution to Canada's job market and the economy,” added Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development. “That's why our Government is working in partnership to improve foreign credential recognition so that skilled newcomers can put their knowledge and skills to work sooner.”

Minister Kenney also used the occasion to release the 2011 Government of Canada Progress Report on Foreign Credential Recognition, Strengthening Canada's Economy. The annual report, led by the Foreign Credentials Referral Office, highlights achievements made by Citizenship and Immigration Canada , Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, and Health Canada to help foreign trained individuals integrate into the Canadian workforce. 

Highlights of the report include:

expansion of the Canadian Immigration Integration Program (CIIP), which is designed and managed by the Association of Canadian Community Colleges. CIIP currently offers pre-arrival orientation sessions in up to 25 countries, based on demand;
an innovative assessment and bridging program to help internationally educated nurses meet regulatory requirements for licensure across Canada; and
the launch of the International Qualifications Network Website for stakeholders to share information and best practices in credential assessment.
