My biometrics are completed and everything else seems to be under processing. Not sure if it is worth it to order GCMS at this point? suggestions?
I supposed you are inside Canada right?
If you wish to only know the status of your application you can just called IRCC and speak to an agent. Ask the updated status of your application.

IRCC - 888-242-2100

CEC inland applicant from Ontario - anyone got any updates? My eligibility and BGC is still under process. (biometrics completed)
My interpretation of their notification is that CEC applicants are not high on priority for them. That was kind of visible even when the medicals were cleared.

"We’re prioritizing applications from
  • Canadians trying to return to Canada
  • vulnerable people
  • people who perform or support essential services "

Can you mention your NOC if you don't mind?

guys do you all submit RCMP upfront or wait till they ask? i read many posts in this thread but no mention of RCMP thats why i am asking.
I went to RCMP yesterday for upfront PCC but they said they needed IRCC letter.told them I wanted to get it done upfront but they didn’t get it.

Your application can be refused if your documents are incomplete, found contradicting information when they did your background check or if they find you don't meet the eligibility.
