If your GCMS notes shows that your application has been Approved, then it indicates that all the stages have been passed. However, if the Status (see on Page 1 of GCMS) is still Open, then the PPR request has not been issued.
Thank you for the reply.

I do see the App Status as "Open" and App Status Reason as "In Progress". I also verified the Officer Notes on the last few pages and the text in the first 2 Notes state:

Notes 1 Text: PReVU Verified (applicant information)
Notes 2 Text: Officer Review. Eligibility Passed, Criminality Passed, Integration Search Complete - NAI. All requirements met. Approved.

So from this, can I comprehend that the only thing pending is the issuance of a PPR?

Hi. You are correct in your assessment. When the situation allows IRCC will take the next step with your application.

YEs, this means that your application is approved, i.e. all stages have been passed.

If you have been issued a COPR / PPR, it will be reflected in your GCMS notes as well a your MyCIC account.

Hi @legalfalcon

My application was recently approved (AOR: Sep 1, 2020, Approved: April 12, 2021). I've applied for GCMS notes on March 17, 2021 and received notes today.

I'm surprised to see that the case analyst who analysed my application used my old CRS score and old CRS cutoff of my initial invitation. I actually declined that and later received another invitation where my CRS score and cutoff CRS scores had changed! Do you think it's an error? I'm glad that my application was approved but at the same time I'm wondering how this error could happen!!

You can surely reach out to IRCC. However, if your application is approved, it does not matter since this is from IRCC look into and not your fault.

Post 2018, criminality is based on PCCs and the biometrics fingerprints you submit. The PCC are verified early along with R10 and that is when you may see the value as passed, which will change to not started, and again to passed after your fingerprints are processed by RCMP and the results are transmitted to IRCC.
