Just got GCMS note I ordered on Jan 20th. My file has been transferred to Montreal Office and I heard it is entirely shut down. Maybe that is the cause of my processing delay...

How did you come to know the VO is shut down? If that is the case, we are all gonna be affected severely...

Hey

I genuinely think our PR card processing is being delayed for the reason we all know.

The PR card processing center is in Sydney. Since Nova Scotia has already declared a state of emergency and they require at least 2 meters between people in offices, I do believe the Sydney processing center is reducing its workforce to meet that social distancing requirement, which means they almost surely have a reduced capacity now.

Still no sign of PR card, its approved but Canada Post is apparently slowing down now too. I really want the card just so then this can all be over. Feel like it's never ending right now!

IRCC still owe me $580 refund. I applied for restoration and then asked for it withdrawn when I became a PR. Back in February. Raised two webforms about it and no news. Going to wait it out for now because they are probably on short staff with Coronavirus but its starting to annoy me.

Thank you for your reply.

They responded to my webform and said that they have verified my inquiry and forwarded it to the responsible office, which is the PR card processing center in Sydney. Since Nova Scotia is now in a state of emergency, I don't think that office will speed up their PR card printing and shipping process.

I share the same feeling with you, which is that I just want this never-ending process to end as quickly as possible. This waiting game has been too long and it has to be put to an end now! Although I don't need the card for any purpose now as we cannot do any international travel, I still want to get it soon so this whole immigration thing can be over.

IRCC hasn't really explicitly informed applicants of what disruptions they are experiencing in their different offices, and the only thing they have posted publicly is that the call center is now closed, so I assume they are having a significantly reduced capacity, so there is no hope that they can still meet their officially posted processing times.

Hi,
I am in the same boat waiting for them to withdraw my work permit application, even I raised couple of webforms asking them to withdraw my application and only got generic responses like some agent already responded to my request on so and so date but not sure what they meant by someone responded to my request.
What response did u get for your webforms?

I got a reply saying once they start working on it then it will be withdrawn. But then that means I probably won’t get all the money back. Plus it’s now over normal processing time and still no sign of the refund. I don’t get how it’s this hard to get a refund.

hi ..a quick question...my consultant has my log in details. Is there a way that I can get gcms notes without them knowing ?

Because my consultant states it might delay the process so they said they won't order the notes.

its 8 months since aor.. that's why I'm confused on what to do.. your thoughts will be helpful?

yes you can as your GCKEY account will not show any info related to your GCMS request.

Sailing in the same boat, waiting for PPR, no hope in next 2 months because of corona outbreak :(
Many, many, many people from August and after August got PPR already. I can't possibly think of why don't have the ability to make the queue more orderly.
