Thanks i just received the email.
I live in the GTA. I see there are multiple options to do fingerprints. Does anyone know which method is the most time and cost effective.
Is it RCMP, local police station or other institute?
I went to a RCMP authorized company to get them done, as my local police are not currently providing fingerprint services (GTA). It took about 4-5 weeks for the background check to clear on the tracker after having them done.

Hey, I received the same email. It did not include a link and I also thought it was spam

I received something similar today. It was a survey to ask about IRCC-funded "settlement services" that a lot of newcomers avail through local NGOs.

I completed the survey and submitted it.

I didn't get any ghost update on the tracker.
No update on my progress for many days on https://cst-ssc.apps.cic.gc.ca/en/login
Then I got an email about the citizenship test. Immediately, I logged back onto https://cst-ssc.apps.cic.gc.ca/en/login, it suddenly showed many updates from the last 2 weeks (these weren't showing any updates before that citizenship test email). I know this because I checked my application status every day.

Do you have a list of RCMP Accredited FP companies? Can you please share?
