Are FSW-Inland applications from 2020 being processed?

I am looking to escalate this to someone who can help with the processing of the files that came in first.
I tried sending an email to Marco Mendicino's office but it came back with a generic reply.
Is there any way we can get in touch with someone in the higher authority.
I hv given up.. i just hope that officer can process my file.. thats all i can do.. i request gcms notes to know status thats it...

That is a million dollar question right now... We FSW inlands are in just in the dark together...no light at the end of the tunnel....I have been asking this around various places..could not find anything... helpless and hopeless situation

In my opinion, they will only start working on it after they lift the travel restrictions and open the borders. I know we are inland, but they are treating FSW as if we were all outland

Yeah, I agree with @jcpn. I decided to leave the country and get back once PR is processed. I’ll live life elsewhere. With the way things are going, it’ll likely to happen next year I think as Canada is not that fast when it comes to vaccination.

That’s nice to know that some of the FSW-Inland applications have been advancing. Though I bet this person’s Security / Criminality checks got initiated and completed before the IRCC’s announcement regarding prioritization of CEC cases.

Two friends of mine with AOR in September 2020 (one is FSW-Inland and the other one is FSW-Outland) also got their COPRs in the beginning of January. Though I haven't heard about many approved FSW applications with Feb-June AORs.

I have decided to leave and never come back. Can someone tell me what is the process to withdraw the application. Also do I get a refund on my fees

Seems FSW Inland won't proceed regardless of the stage of your approval status, i.e. which "tests" / "check" you have passed.

AOR Mar 2020
Eligibility, BG check, criminality, security, medical all passed in Sept 2020
GCMS note shows Final as "Approved" - whatever that means in that document...
However, no confirmation of approval & last update shown was Oct 2020

Inland or Outland doesn't matter. All FSW processing in Ottawa is crippled.
