Hi Guys,

Starting thread for those who have AOR in August 2017 - please join for discussion and knowledge sharing.

There is already a watsapp/telegram groups for August AOR - please leave a request (dont share number, just a request saying: add me to watsapp) and i will send you an invite link.

Below I will post some information which you may find useful going forward.

Some FAQ:

Q: How to find my visa office?

A: Send E-mail to: CPC-CTD-Ottawa@cic.gc.ca
Subject: E000xxxx - Visa Office
Body of the mail:
Hello,

I am trying to find out in which Visa office my application is being processed?

Application number: E000xxxx
Date of Birth: 19xx-xx-xx
Last Name: xxx
First Name: xxxx
UCI: -
Category of Immigration: Federal Skilled Worker


Q: Can you explain background status changes (by other forum member, not my):

A: Background statuses explained:

There are two different things. Application status remains in process until we complete stamping.

Regarding BG status - It will go through different stages and let me try to make it clear to you to avoid any further confusion.

Prior to March 7, CIC used to maintain the below BG status.
1. Not needed at this time (NN)
2. Not Started (NS)
3. In Progress (IP)

After March 7, they paraphase the above status as follows.

1. Not Applicable (NA) ( Old Status :: NN)
2. Next to step to conduct BG Check (NBG) (Old Status : NS)
3. In Progress (IP)

People in the threads are using the above status interchangeably. So, don't get confused.

Now as far as BG process is concerned, it will go through the below trends. I'm using new status words for your reference.

Trend 1: NA -> IP -> NA -> IP
Trend 2: NA -> NBG-> NA-> IP

Some people who are submitting RCMP along with eAPR follows Trend 2 and rest Trend 1. I may not be 100% accurate. But this is what I noticed for CEC Inlanders.
Once the applicant at IP(2), he can expect PPR anytime soon.

Regarding at what stage BG will change??

STAGE 1:: After we submit our application, the BG status would be NA and it will be there until we see a change in Medical status (Passed).

STAGE 2:: After medical update is done, then agent at CIO will change our BG to IP or NBG. Then, he will start R10 check, Criminal checks.

STAGE 3:: After the above checks are done, then he will change BG to NA and our file moved to next stage for Eligibility assessment (A11.2) . Once he/she feels that we are meeting the Eligibility then he/she will provide his/her recommendation to Visa Officer and initiate the Security Clearance. At this point only our file will be moved from CIO to CPC.

STAGE 4:: Officer at Local Visa Office (LVO) will review the recommendation, Security clearance reports. Once he/she satisfies then he/she will approve the recommendation. Then our BG will be changed to IP again. This is where PPR(Passport Request) mails triggered to applicants.



I will post more as we progress.

Thanks!

Hi guys,

I am going to join this thread in a couple of days, and now I need some help here.
Can someone please guide me on one issue. I am about to upload and submit my post ITA documents. I have several letters of explanations (for Proof of funds, for passport, etc). Do I need to combine all letters of explanations as one file and to upload in LOE section ? or do I need to upload each LOE into the appropriate section (for example, POF letter of explanation to POF section) ?
I would appreciate your quick advice as I have several hours till submission deadline :).

Thank you!

Both are fine, I chosed the second option since it makes more sense to me and I think the officer will be able to understand the situation better.

Hmm I used the LOE space to provide additional documents. I don't see the need to upload LOEs twice but if you have enough space, why not.
Thank you, I didn't quite get it here, what additional documents you might have other than those required ?

My partner and I are "common-law partners". We provided documents to prove it in the dedicated placeholder but 4MB is filled easily, so we continued uploading in the LOE placeholder.
