All - Do you not think this a little unfair to the people who followed the instructions and didn't apply since it asked for 2013 as well ? They explicitly had a note stating that, and it is now modified?
No. It is unfair to people who were not eligible last year because 2012-2014 tax years were required. And now all of a sudden they skipped 2013-2015. Trudeau government is highly incompetent and stupid at that. From citizenship to PR to sponsoring parents, they've ruined everything. Can't wait to become a citizen and vote these morons out.

It is one of those teething problems when transitioning to a new system.

I am guessing the new timeline would be to submit expression of interest in Jan. They conduct the lottery in July. Notifications of success/try again go out in August. NOAs will be required for preceding 3 years (given that applications will come in after families have received their NOA for the previous year). It means that they make sure the financial assessment is more current. It might be a good or bad thing for some families for this year as their financial status might have changed in 2016. (eg Alberta had a lot of layoffs).

In any case we just have to wait.

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
It is only good not bad, you have to meet income requirement for all years till parents become PR so if your 2016 fell short then you are ineligible anyway or if submitted still be rejected later

This is completely wrong. You need to meet income requirement even after applying till parent become PR so even if you apply last year you still need to meet 2016 income. They are right to require most recent 3 years, distant income 4 years ago has no value

I am patiently waiting as well. I am guessing they sent out emails to successful applicants first. So likely those of us who have not got anything weren't selected.

Oh well. Try next year. :(

There is a message that if we do not get any email by May 8, we need to contact IRCC.
