Update: I got MEP and BIL today. Also received ADR for husband's RCMP certified criminal records check (he has a very common name), so thank you @legalfalcon for letting us know in advance that we need this. I had already got this done and received the report, so I was able to upload right away.
So If we have a common name is it better to get RCMP in applying from inland??

I found below details

Service Canada Centres are gradually resuming biometrics collection services for permanent residence applicants who have received a biometric instruction letter (BIL).

Service Canada officers will call you at the telephone number you provided in your application to schedule your biometrics appointment. There is no additional fee to pay, and you don’t need a new BIL. Don’t go to a Service Canada Centre unless a Service Canada Officer calls you and schedules an appointment for you.

For more details find the below link

Interesting, I thought the RPRF request only comes just before the PPR. Thank you for the info ;)
RPRF letters can differ in wording, depending on the stage of the application. It can take months from when the RPRF is paid (after request) to get PPR. In some cases, it could be mere weeks. Sometimes, it doesn’t even indicate PR is approved.

Depends on the contents of the letter in the request.

Hello All,

My AOR was on the 27th of August and medical still not passed. Is this normal?
Hi, my AOR was 23 August and medicals passed on 14 Sept. So yours should be any day now. But it also depends on how many other applicants are in front of you, so try not to worry.

Background check is a generic terms covering criminality, info sharing and security screening. As these checks are done on your file the message changes as well. Security screening will only start after Eligibility has Passed.

Do we need to get RCMP upfront even before CIC requests for it in order to save time?
You can if you want. There is no guarantee that you'll get asked for it - if your name isn't a common one then there is less chance that you'll be asked for it. remains at the discretion of the IRCC officer reviewing your application. If you do get it upfront, it can save you a few weeks of processing (as @legalfalcon has mentioned in the thread)

I do have a common name and was thinking to get it upfront now. Thanks for your reply.
