Hi Everyone,

Congratulations for submitting your eAPR and becoming part of September 2019 AOR gang.

This thread is to assist everyone with questions in relation to process tracking, trends, processing timelines concerns and just to get together and plan the upcoming move over to Canada while trying to understand when to expect your PPR.

Good luck!

I will be sharing some statistics below to help you with the process.

Many ask, how to find which VO is processing my application?

Here is the answer:

Write an e-mail to cpc-ctd-Ottawa@cic.gc.ca

Write a subject such as : Visa Office Enquiry

My details are:
Application number: E000 xxxxxxxx Express entry profile number

What are GCMS notes?

GCMS notes is a complete and most recent information from your Canadian immigration/visa file GCMS stands for the Global Case Management System, which is used by the Government of Canada to store and process all immigration and visa applications worldwide. If you have ever submitted any application to the Canadian immigration authorities – for example an application for permanent residence, for a visitor visa, study or work permit etc. – your application and all information about its processing is stored in GCMS You can request GCMS notes - information from your file stored in the system. Inside you will find immigration officers' notes that will allow you to understand how your current application is being processed GCMS notes can be requested from Canada or by a Canadian citizen only

Thanks for creating this forum
I got my ITA on August 20th I have prepared my documents such as the police reports from outside Canada.

I am meeting with a consultant to ask some questions about my work experience letter and whether or not I should get a new letter.

I have a quick question is it possible to add my current job even after my ITA.I recently got a job at the city of Toronto.

Thanks again.

Hi mate and congrats!

As per my view, your new job does not change anything related to your application and it clearly states the start date is after ITA. So you should be good.

Received ITA on Aug 20 and I have submitted my eAPR like an hour ago, still haven't received AOR.
Usually how long does it take between eAPR and AOR?

Received ITA on Aug 20 and I have submitted my application on Sept 1st, but still, haven't received AOR. Is it because of labor day extended weekend?
