There won't be any ghost email. And you guys would already have that update but you didn't notice. If you open your Express entry account it'll show application updated, however nothings chnaged whatsoever. That's called ghost update. But it won't last for long. So even if yoh had it, you didn't check your account during that time and you missed it. But if it's says "make sure to check messages " on top then it means your file has already passed few steps.. and it's in almost last stage.

Hi, I realize it happened to me two days ago. AOR Jan 28, The top part changed from "you may not hear from us for a while that is normal" to "Make sure you read your message and take action when we ask you to. This will help move the application process long". Does that mean they are viewing my application and processing it"? Thanks!

For me that section was updated after medicals were passed. There was email as with title "
We updated your application status"

Possible... it could be a mark of 3 months... I really hope I can get it before July because I am sick of the wait.... I made a web form request and it says as follows:
  • The background verifications have not been initiated.
  • The security background verification has not been initiated.
  • The criminal background verification is in process.

It looks like they are working on my criminal background check right now. I will probably send another inquiry at the end of May.

Oh good to know, I didn't notice but yes it is changed from "you may not hear from us" to "make sure you check your messages and take actions we ask you".

Hi all, I know I am technically AOR December 2019 but I applied on New Years Eve so I think I am in the same process as you all. Here's my progress so far:

CEC-Outland applicant (currently residing in Canada though)

AOR: 31 Dec 2019
MEP: 21 Jan 2020
RPRF: 27 Jan 2020
BIL: 29 Jan 2020

Sent the first webform on 12th April (about my RPRF)

April 16th I received a response to my Webform:
- The responsible office is currently verifying if your application meets the eligibility requirements under the immigration program for which you have applied, you may be contacted via your account if additional information is needed.
- The security background verification has not been initiated.
- The criminal background verification is in process.

- Ghost update: 23 April (Profile homepage said "Application/Profile Updated" but no changes, and the application went back to "Submitted". No email.)
- 2nd ghost update: 27 April (Profile homepage said "Application/Profile Updated" and Review of Additional Documents changed from 'We are reviewing the additional documents you provided' to 'Not Applicable'. No email.)

Something strange happened in my account today. In submitted document section, I also upload LOE, before it was not there since I applied but today I just saw it and there was a statement on the top in red something like this”if we request documents please provide in the due date otherwise we will review your application without requested document” and on refreshing the page LOE and that Statment both vanished.
Mine also changed to check your messages.
Around 45days ago, I’ve also requested cic though webform to include my wife in application (Post-AOR). Any idea?

My LOE also disappeared when I had to upload ADR. I wouldn't be worried.

Just an update for you guys, I sent a webform and specifically asked for my eligibility and background check. I got the following reply along with usual stuff.

Thank you for contacting Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

We verified the information you provided and can confirm that your application is still in process.

All the required documents and information have been received by the responsible office for the moment.

In addition, we verified the information on file and can confirm that:

  • The eligibility requirementsunder the immigration program for which you have applied have been passed,
    • you may be contacted via your account if additional information is needed.
  • The background verifications are currently valid.
This is really encouraging, I don't wanna jinx it but hopefully PPR is gonna be coming soon.
