2018 Quebec Inland Spouse/Common law sponsorship applicants only - timelines

Discussion in 'Family Class Sponsorship' started by basket90, Apr 1, 2019.

  1. Good afternoon Melito, it looks like you are an expert on this sponsorship process. My common-law partner sent the application for PR on January 2019 I’ve received so far the letter:
    1- Application received
    2- Provincial requirements for Quebec, this letter was sent twice because the first CSQ had a error on my name and date of birth.

    I’m very worried because I haven’t get my medical exams petition nor work permit.
  2. Hi, I am in no way an expert on the sponsorship process, I just try to help with the knowledge that I do have. When you get the medical request depends entirely on the officer working on your file. As far as I know, there is no fixed time frame for receiving it. In fact, a lot of June applicants had to wait until February to receive their medical requests, for instance. If I were you I would look at the January 2019 applicants to see when people with similar timelines to yours are receiving their medical requests. Assuming you are an inland applicant, here is the most active thread: https://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/threads/inland-spouse-sponsorship-january-2019.605338/unread

    As for the work permit application, have you linked it to your gckey? That way you will know when it is approved and you will have your application number. It should take around 4 months to get it approved, you are indeed over that time. Again, try to compare with people that applied around the same time as you.

  3. Thanks for your help.

  4. Thanks for your help

  5. Good morning Melito,

    Not very helpful the group that you sent me, I went on this one because Quebec is the only province in Canada that makes you send paperwork to the province too so a lot of the applicants on the other group have no idea of this.

    Anyways... question, what does the approval in principle means? I think my WP will be approve after this step I don’t know why.

    Look at this: the last paragraph is me. I did exactly what the law says, I had until beginning of February to restore my status in Canada (90 days, got a letter from CIC Calgary)

    Officers will issue open work permits to SCLPC class applicants if they meet the following requirements:

    • a permanent residence application has been submitted under the SCLPC class and is currently being processed, or has been received, by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada for processing
    • a Canadian citizen or permanent resident spouse has submitted a sponsorship application on their behalf
    • the SCLPC class applicant resides at the same address as the sponsor
    • the SCLPC class applicant has valid temporary resident status (as a visitor, student or worker), or is eligible to restore their temporary resident status, and has submitted the restoration application with their application for permanent residence
  6. I advised to look at people with similar timelines to yours are receiving their medical requests and to compare with people that applied around the same time as you to see when they are receiving their work permits. Did you look at their timelines? Did you specifically ask about medical exams and work permits?
    Your application is “approved in principle (AIP)” if:
    -you have received a letter from IRCC stating that you meet the permanent residence eligibility requirements, but
    -you still have to pass the medical, security and background checks for you and, if needed, your family members.

    If one is out of status when one applies for the work permit, one can only receive it after receiving approval in principle. As for as restoration of status goes, I am not familiar with the procedure. But one thing for sure, you will not get the open work permit unless your status has either been restored or you have received approval in principle.

  7. Thanks you so much Melito, I found someone applying from Quebec. He/she has issues with the CSQ.

  9. Hi, When did you apply for the CSQ and what is the current status?
  10. Hi all, I am March inland applicant from Quebec as well. I applied for CSQ on May 30, I received "Accuse de reception" on June 13.. since then no news from MIDI. what's the standard issuance time for CSQ after access de reception??

    I will appreciate if someone could give an answer who is familiar to CSQ process please?
  11. what's is the update? did you check your account? do you see any changes?
  12. Nothing , i called immigration there was nothing new since AIP
  13. it's really frustrating that in Ontario they had already PR , it took them 6,7 to 8 months , and for Quebec applicants , it takes 11 to more than 12 months
  14. I feel the same. Also a QC applicant, just hit 13 months. It's also really concerning to see all these timeline spreadsheets with QC applicants still waiting. I haven't seen one get DM.
