That was my first thought, too. But then I've read another article about it some time ago on radio canada concerning the 18'000 non treated files. Although the main article isn't about our immigration class, there was a general part that mentioned that even if you have the CSQ it does not mean you will got the PR strait away. Apparently Mississuga has to make a choice and is limited in the number of applications they approve for Quebec. So Mississuga seems not have the right to pass a certain quota given by Quebec. In the end it will only mean that our application will take maybe longer than the others or than the 12 months... time will tell Concerning your comment about that it takes longer for us because of the CSQ, I don't think so, we all got the CSQ before the other started their review of eligibility.
