ADR October 21 - I received an email asking for documents which I presented in order to obtain my police clearance.
I had a call from the local embassy on November 11. I found it really weird because the person only asked what I presented in order to get my police certificate. I repeated the documents which I sent in response to the ADR. The lady on the phone then asked me why the date of request was different from the date of issue. (They probably compared it to my husband who had the same date of request and issue). I said because in the Philippines when your name is common, it is not unusual for someone with a similar name as you to have committed a crime. So the extra days may be for additional review by the institution issuing the police certificates to make sure that it's not you. I then provided a more updated police certificate (without them asking, just to show that I had no problem obtaining clearance).
Ordered GCMS notes three times. First arrived on June 24. Criminality passed, eligibility and security not started.
Second was on November 20. Eligibility - Required Review. Security not started. My heart sank when I read the notes saying that if my first work could not be confirmed, we would not have passed the draw when we supposedly made the cut off. It said that they could not find the address of my first employer (where I spent 3.5 years with) on open source information. The company is an internet start up that really does not indicate their physical address anywhere. So I asked for my previous manager if I could get a copy of their business registration documents and contracts of lease. I sent the additional documents immediately without them asking for it.
Third was on December 28. Same as last notes.
Asked for an update on January 8, no reply.
It's been an rollercoaster of emotions for the past 9 months. We are excited to finally plan our life in Canada. We plan on going as soon as we finish all pre-departure requirements and will be living near my sister in law in Vancouver.
All the best for those still waiting!
I'm on the same boat as yours cause I have been stuck at Eligibility - Required Review stage for a long time. I submitted all requested documents regarding to the confirmation of my past employer by IRCC and there is no update as of today.
