I spoke with IRCC yesterday and asked them about the Quebec cap. They told me that they were not impacted by cap that provinces may impose, as the provinces will deal with those themselves. So that basically, if we received CSQ, it's out of Quebec's hand and the decision resides with the federal. And they specifically mentioned that the federal is not responsible to apply provincial cap in their treatment of applications.

So now I'm a bit confused. I don't think the quotas Qc added this year are impacting us, as it was related to skilled workers, and if my memory is right, QC said they wouldn't touch quotas for spouse/family for now.

Also, is it me or does it seem like fall applications are treated faster than before? and if so, I wonder how that will impact Quevec applicants.

No, it happens, sometimes applicants don't receive the SA letter. Some don't even get AIP. Some get pre-arrival services letter, most don't. But you can he sure the sponsorship was approved. He probably had Decision Made on sponsor side on ecas. Maybe he didn't notice when it happened, but if your ecas says Decision Made, most likely the sponsorship was approved.

My timeline:

Application received: March 14
AOR received (email): April 27
CSQ requested by IRCC: May 2
OWP: no update yet

Question please:

For the Quebec applications, do we get OWP first or CSQ request from IRCC? Because I have seen one applicant (inland March 2019) who received her OWP first and then IRCC requested CSQ. So I am confused as I have seen many Quebec applicants’ timelines which show that they are getting CSQ request, then medical and then they are getting OWP.

Please help me to understand, thanks a lot! And good luck to all !!

Regards,
Tay
