I also got the same email, I have an account in WES just updated my recipient IRCC and paid $33 fees. They sent my report to IRCC same day.My timeline:
ITA: March 20
AoR: April 2
MEP: May 16 (upfront medical check)
Expected completion: October 2019
It's still said that my application is still being processed and no update so far. However last Thursday, I got an email from WES to say that IRCC needs to verify my ECA reports for my education outside Canada by accessing to my WES account because IRCC is not the recipient. I was asked to create a WES Canada account and have IRCC added as a recipient so that my education outside Canada will be approved and as a result of this, I can get points for this.
I did WES US in 2018 for the graduate study purpose in the U.S and I was sent a copy of my ECA later by WES US that was used to submit to IRCC for my Canadian PR application under CEC class. I really didn't know WES Canada is available.
I called to WES Canada and I was asked to submit a request via Contact US on Thursday (all requests must be written to be approved via Contact US on its website). I haven't heard anything from WES yet while it is supposed to have 48 hours for WES to respond a request. So, I guess, my application is being delayed to approve due to my ECA matter. Is it right?
Does anyone have this experience? Waiting is not happy
