According to this spreadsheet it seems like no one who applied for PR after July 2019 in Quebec has received AIP yet:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Gm315tmNKWoywb7PwZBiE67fUmznYQrNhYVWXPXXJBw/edit#gid=1959864524

You can also see a MAJOR jump in delay in processing the CSQ's after the July applicants got theirs in February, which I assume was due to Covid-19.

I applied in October 2019 and got nervous when I saw many, many people who applied then had received AIP, but then I realized none of them are living in Quebec.

Fingers crossed things speed up for us prospective Quebecers.

I would be glad to know if anything I said above is wrong/misguided.

Hard not to be on pins and needles waiting for AIP!!
I'm on a whatsapp group where a QC applicant from July 2019 just got their CoPR today. So things are moving... Unfortunately, not everyone updates or even knows about the spreadsheet so it's hard to gauge the speed of things for us QC people sometimes. Especially, because there's no point in comparing our timelines with those applicants from the rest of Canada.

Yes ! Log into GCKEY, Click on 'Add (link) your application to your account ' and then choose ' permenant resident card' , continue to follow the instruction and they will find the application that IRCC made for you the day you received COPR.

I really hope this reflects on QC applications as well! Maybe MIFI should take note and do that for CSQ as well.... :p

That is really good news! Especially since most 2019 applicants are done with the Quebec side and now we wait for CIC to do its thing.

I am very surprised by this timeline. I applied in September, and just now received my CSQ.
It depends when they sent you the CSQ request. I applied in October, CSQ application was received in Dec and approved in June.

Guys I got SA and Eligibility letter for AIP yesterday on portal. Today I see Decision Made on Ecas. But I dont understand what it means though because I dont see any related document or change in my IRCC portal.

The officer called me yesterday to confirm the address as my spouse's address was not changed, she was asking me if we are living together in same address. I then told her that I forgot to change the address and its old lol. She verified the new address and finally said she is gonna approve it from her end. But it will be the Montreal office that will/may check some things and then schedule the landing(guess virtual for now).

Not sure when these things will happen! :confused:

First of all, congrats on being almost done! I would have thought that IRCC calling you would be the landing interview as it was the case with so many other people. Keep us posted if the Montreal office calls or schedules some sort of virtual landing?

HI ! Congrats for SA and AIP.
Decison made is on wich side ? only sponsor or both ? I guess it's on sponsor's side. Montreal office will complete/approuve background check medical ect and then you'll be receiving a COPR email with decison made on PR side. there is no more ' landing interview ' , but sometimes they call when they want more information or to validate something before goiing to the next step.

these day people are receiving Copr really fast after AIP.

Good luck.
