My wife just got her stamped passport. Finally the wait is over for us. Here's my timeline: Sent application to Mississauga: Feb. 20 Manila embassy PPR: April 8 Manila requested for additional docs: May 13 Release of PP with visa stamp: Aug. 5 From the time they requested the passport (apr. 8), it took 4 months to return it to her with stamped visa. I prayed the rosary one afternoon and the next day I checked ecas and it showed "decision made". God is Great! Good luck to everyone.
