  3. Private medical insurance only covers emergencies and usually excludes any known conditions unless they have been well controlled for a long time. Seems like you only applied in September so you are in the 1 year timeframe that is the target for all of Canada.
  4. wait so you have DM on both sides in ecas now??
  5. No, sorry if this is confusing.

    I've got DM status in ECAS but I haven't received any communication of the decision in the following days. Finally, in April 16th my sponsor got SA letter by email...almost one month after ECAS status changed.

    I don't have DM on PA side....they are still reviewing eligibility, and my BGC hasn't started yet.
  6. Oh ok thanks for clearing it up. Weird that it took them so long to forward your SA letter.
    Best of luck to you

  7. I dont understand. I thought you guys apply for CSQ before apply for sponsorship??? How can it low down the sponsorship process when you apply CSQ before???
    Anw, I almost reach the 13 months of waiting
  8. Btw, I think QC lows down the amount of ppl to immigrate to QC because many people after got PR, they move to other province instead of staying in QC
  9. Are you a Quebec applicant?
    We apply first sponsorship, than rather early in the sponsorship process we receive the request to undergo the CSQ process. Usually it takes a month to get the CSQ and it's requested shortly after AOR in the sponsorship process. As I mentioned in previous posts, I don't think the CSQ is what slows us Quebec applicants down, but the fact that there are limitations imposed by Quebec of how much persons can immigrate per year and that this limit just got lowered.

  10. I checked on different pages, spreadsheet and forums, it looks like the backlog for Quebec applicants starts quite early in the year.. are there any Quebec applicants from applicants before July having received more than SA and/or AIP?
  11. I only know of one Quebec applicant in these canadavisa forums who got DM both sides, has landed and even received his PR card. He is a Feb 2018 applicant who got DM on PA side in December 2018. You can see his full timeline in his signature or profile. Here is a link to one of his posts.
    And in the facebook group Canada Spousal Sponsorship Support Group, just saw an April 2018 applicant who got DM on April 23. She didn't specify but I think it is both sides.
    I think there are some September QC applicants with DM too.

  13. Yes I am Quebec application. I called and they told me that I needed to apply for CSQ first.
    As I mentioned that the limit is getting lower every year, because of after having the PR, people start to move to another province instead of staying in QC
  14. Thank you for your contribution, it really does not look good!

    No, at least not in the September group of canadavisa, there is no Quebec applicant with DM on PA side, three have DM sponsor side (SA) and AIP on PA side. Nothing else!! Two from sept. 11 and the other from sept. 17.
  15. That's weird! We had a consultant for preparing and there was never the question of applying CSQ upfront!
    I think they lowered the limit this year because of the Quebec goverment changes that took place in autumn!!
