Does anyone have a screen shot sample of gckey or some kind of email letter showing clear statement that "we have started processing PA background check.."??

Hows is the PA usually informed when it has started? Thanks
I wasn’t informed, it just showed up on GCkey in the section called “background check.”

There was no email sent or any notification...I think they call that a “ghost update.”

Can you please confirm what does background check status shows in GCKEY when background check starts ?

Also, what do you mean by ghost update ?

Mine says background check is in progress...I get that.. But that's what it's said since day 1. Or maybe I can't tell the difference. Like when my medical showed up a date popped up next to "You passed your medical" so I was thinking something similar would be reflected for the background check. Thanks anyway!

only way of knowing if in fact your background check has started is by calling or ordering notes. Criminality which consist of validating your PCC and receiving your biometrics and is the quickest in the process. Medical is another layer and again easy to determine but security is the tough one and takes the longest to complete as IRCC is not responsible for conducting security checks. In my case, criminality passes the day my husband completed biometrics.

That’s the same way it looks for me. “Background check is in process.”
No notification or anything, no date beside it.

Hello, we received medical surveillance form IMM 0535 today. Is this PPR soon? I believed this will be handed to the border officer at port of entry in Canada. I'm just wondering what is next after this. Thank you!
