Hi folks, May 14 applicant here (check signature):

Received SA on February 1st - is that the last step before landing? I have DM on both sides as well, but no update apart from that in ECAS.

Good luck everyone!
Hi, in addition, most applicants also get a DM letter via email. It's ok if you don't.
Then comes your Landing Interview Letter with date/time of your interview (email).
Finally, you go to interview and become PR; CoPR provided on same day of your interview. PR card is mailed in 6-8 wks.

Thanks so much for the info! That's good news. At this point, it's highly unlikely that anything goes off the rails, I presume? Crossing fingers that the DM letter comes soon if it comes at all.

I waited 6.5 weeks for the interview letter. My interview will be on February 21 in Vancouver.
Exactly one year since I applied.

I saw decision made on both side on ECAS, but when I called, they said start reviewing eligibility and background check. It is some kind of delay?

Hello everyone,

Received the Approval of Permanent Residence form yesterday (May 14th applicant - Mississauga office). I'm in Atlantic Canada, so there's no interview appointment required - we get to just head straight to the IRCC office when it's open and "land", which is fantastic! Good luck to everyone - I'll update with more about the landing interview once I head there later this week!
