    Tips for 2016 (Future) PGP Applicants

    This day has finally happened! My parents got the invitation to submit passports for visas - the same day their repeat medicals were received. They are in Canada now, and their US visas expired just days ago (ironically), so I wonder what the best way for them to land would be. Is crossing the...

    Tips for 2016 (Future) PGP Applicants

    Got a pre-arrival services letter today. I hope that means some progress soon. Any consensus on what it means? According to ATIP, my mom's medicals are expired but my dad's were extended to the end of this year. Waiting for the invitation for repeat medical now, I guess.

    Just got my ATIP today (took 2 months after request). I'm not sure what this all means. The last change is Medical Passed changed to Medical Passed Expired in September 2017. Also, says the file was moved to "FC Pending" location two days after they requested RPRF back in August 2017, and...

    Do you mean ATIP reports are no longer provided? I can understand silence for 18 months after requesting medicals, but providing ATIP reports within 30 days is a legal requirement as far as I know.

    Tips for 2016 (Future) PGP Applicants

    I'm getting very frustrated - the last communication from CIC a as request for PR fee payment (in August 2017), medicals expired in September 2017, and nothing since. I requested ATIP 40 days ago and got nothing back either. What is going on? Any way to check? MyCIC says no need for medicals...

    How do you order GCMS? I'm asking because I followed instructions I found somewhere earlier in this thread and received no response after over 40 days now.

    Tips for 2016 (Future) PGP Applicants

    Is there any way to call CIC or Ottawa processing office? I've been hitting against a wall since August - my parents moved, and I'm trying to change their address online, and Home address changed but the mailing address stayed the same, which is no longer valid and there is no mail forwarding...

    Very bad news :-(. My parents' medicals expired a couple of weeks ago, so will probably get the same email.

    Thanks for the update. It's great news that they are extending medicals instead of making do them again.

    Tips for 2016 (Future) PGP Applicants

    My schedule is somewhat odd: Transferred to Ottawa - one of the very early cases to get transferred Medicals requested in August and sent in early September 2016 (inside Canada) In late October I got email asking why we have not submitted medicals - we responded that we did. CIC confirmed...

    Tips for 2016 (Future) PGP Applicants

    Almost the same here. Meds sent in early September, passed in November, background check in process since. Got a request for military history 1 month ago, with immediate response (no history), and nothing since. I got hopeful when I got the military history request, but nothing again and meds...

    It was saying "the next step is background check" since January. Still says that.

    Tips for 2016 (Future) PGP Applicants

    Just got a request for detailed military service info for my dad. Kind of strange because it was over 40 years ago, but not the worst thing. Encouraging, after 6 months of silence. Ottawa office, meds expire in September.

    Tips for 2016 (Future) PGP Applicants

    Yes, practically the same timing here. Meds sent in late august and early September, and "Background check in process" since. Seems like Ottawa got busy with something else - the new batch or maybe finishing up with the older backlog?

    Hard to say what's normal now. Medicals in August, police in November and nothing since.

    Tips for 2016 (Future) PGP Applicants

    I've been trying to link MyCIC to the application for the last 6 months and no luck. How can this be so poorly designed? Anyway, the only field that I'm not sure I'm entering correctly is the number of people in the application. Here is my situation - I'm sponsoring 2 parents, I have my wife...

    Tips for 2016 (Future) PGP Applicants

    Something strange is going on with my parents' application that's getting me worried. They got a request for meds in late August and submitted results (electronically) within two weeks. MyCIC never worked for me (application not found no matter what I enter, 50+ attempts). The old CIC site...

    Tips for 2016 (Future) PGP Applicants

    I remember this was mentioned somewhere, but I cannot find it, so got to ask. What's the process for police check from Canada? The site says the first step is fingerprinting and everything is electronic. What does it mean? Just show up for fingerprinting and everything else is done...
