Has anyone had to send further proof before? How long will that hold up the application?
Yep, for sponsor proof of this income, for myself new schedule a, travel history and military records. All seems to have set me back about one month thus far, compared to folks that sent nothing...

We're on the same boat. Tired of waiting for nothing.
Did you order GCMS notes? I am May 9th applicant, they basically stopped updating my application on Jan 28th nothing after that. I just saw the threads of 2017 it seems some people have been waiting for 2 years, my heart just sank. Mine has just crossed 12 months nothing after medicals. Don't know what to do...

The web form automated email notification system is broken and has been for a while now. Don’t worry, not getting the automated email doesn’t mean anything went wrong! There’s actually a notice on the website about it, too, so you can feel extra reassurance :)

A lot of us inland people from June and August 2018 are having our applications go really really slowly compared to people who applied in September 2018 and later. It’s annoying, it isn’t fair, but nothing is wrong— we are just stuck with slower processing times.

Many of us had our applications sent to Montreal for work-sharing and that seems to be part of the reason for the delay — big backlog there and we got stuck in it.
wow is it ok? I see November 2018 getting PR.

Montreal is really slow compared to other processing center for work load redistribution. currently their EE/FSW processing time is about 9 month compare to Ottawa central 3-4 monmth.

Has anyone who contacted their Member of the Parliment for help see a positive outcome in their application? I am wondering if they have any influence?
