I've posted this in AOR thread but realized that this one is probably more relevant:

Hey guys! I am very late to the party because I had no idea what all of that (AOR, GU, etc) meant.
AOR - Feb 20
I am not sure at what stage(GU) I am - 65% and my background check says "We are processing your background check. We will send you a message if we need more information. "
I've passed medical on March 2.
Couldn't get biometrics done.
Estimate date is the ~the end of aug

My PGWP expires in the end of July and I believe I need to apply for BOWP, right?
I started an application and answered no to a "provided biometrics and photo during the last 10 years before coming to Canada" (something like that). And I there is a fee for biometrics. Seems like they will need biometrics for BOWP too, right?

I am an inland CEC. Also got a COVID survey and 2(?) "We're still working on your application" emails on June 6th.
I've tried to call and listened to their options for ~45 min, going in circles. Maybe if anybody knows a shortcut?

I havent done my biometrics due to covid. :( I still have to wait until they re-open the offices.
I submitted my application on Feb 25th and Feb 26th for my BOWP. I got emails saying that they are still processing my application and it may take longer before I can hear back from them. I got 3 emails saying the same thing for my BOWP and 2 emails for my PR application.

I called last month to IRCC and they said that they are still processing applications but they have less employees that are working for now because of covid-19. They might resume in July but no certainty yet.

Good luck to all of us!
Hi,

I'm waiting for biometrics too. Not sure whether they are going through the other steps or application got stuck due to no biometrics. Is anyone have any clue how they are progressing

Hi, I have no clue if they are processing the applications without biometrics. I just received an email last month saying that they are still processing the application but I think this email is just a general email for everyone. When is your AOR?

Called in today. Was told that I am eligible and passed everything except criminality. So they can't continue processing without my biometrics.

Hello All,

I got my ITA (CEC) on February 5th, medical cleared on 10h March, bio-metrics on 12th March.
