They are first transferred to Ottawa from Edmonton and at Ottawa's discretion, they either complete the application in Ottawa or forward to designated embassy which is then transferred back to Ottawa.

In my case it was bw Edmonton CPC and Windsor CPC then sent to Abu Dhabi. What I understand from your comments is that it'd be forwarded back to one of those and final approval will be sent by them?

Windsor is only assigned to verify LOA which emails your DLI and DLI responds with your status in the DLI (session enrolled for, if ever deferred etc) and verifies if you have paid fee. After that, it is transferred back to Edmonton which then assigns to Ottawa. Ottawa usually transfers to Abu Dhabi (in your case) and based on the instructions, either Abu Dhabi finalizes application or send back to Ottawa to finalize it. I've seen both cases in which Abu Dhabi and/or Ottawa finalized the application.

Which means it was not assigned to any VO. It will be assigned to someone and they will finalize it.

@jigzzy I am confused, how can an AIP be issued without a VO assigned? Who is this person? Will it be an analyst?

It was assigned but not anymore since no further processing is required after AIP. A Case processing agent (not visa officer) will pick up file and process ahead base on the information.

Mine hasn't updated since the AIP in September and I've been waiting since February. I'm starting to regret this SDS route when general applications are getting approvals before us
Exactly, don’t know their logic about SDS, if everything is online why are they not making a decision, there are some other ways to delay student’s travelling but they are just playing with our future

Stage 2 processing has finally started for SDS app.
I hope it started on 20th Oct but there have been few approval and the majority of them applied in July. I don’t know when they will release final decision for application in March, April, May and June
