I have SA and AIP since March 19. Nothing since then. I am a July applicant.
OMG
A July applicant is still waiting and no move from QC. God help me!!! I am September applicant and still in BGC and eligibility review. They are super slow comparing to other provinces. What is the reason?

Not sure why it takes so long for Quebec. I've been seeing applications taking 12/13 months. My hypothesis is that Quebec gives them a certain quota of applications to approve and that affects the length of the process somehow. But of course I don't know for sure :/

Hi guys, we got our PR card today, less than 2 weeks after landing. After waiting 13 months for DM, at least the very last step was quick and efficient :)
Thank you all for your constant support, it was really helpful to share the long waiting with so many kind people and we are really grateful for that :) We wish you all the best!

Yes, now you are waiting for a letter confirming your DM (which you might not receive as not everyone gets it) and a letter telling you when and where your landing appointment will be.

What about your gckey?
gckey hasn't been updated yet:
reviewing eligibility
processing background
application in process
You will probably not see any update on gckey until you land. After you do your landing appointment, then your gckey will say approved.

I checked my partners Ecas yesterday as well and I have also DM on PA side. But no AIP, DM or Landing letter so far. Any estimation of how long the time span is between DM on Ecas and actual landing for Quebec?

Plus by checking on CGkey I had a ghost update, it said that there was something new but had nothing changed. Still in eligibility, background check.
