Hey guys
received an update on my application today.
CEC - AOR May 30 2019

Got procedural of fairness for a sloppy mistake - one of my employment letters says employment length Sept 3 2018 to August 31 2018 and I didnt even notice it before :)mad:) that means they were about to make a decision :eek:
Will get a new letter ASAP and update it thru myCIC

Has anyone seen anything like that and by any chance saw how long do they take to re-review application? Hopefully since it's thru Mycic the immi officer gets instant notification and get it done.

Just wanted to share with you guys the recent update

Thanks
you are very lucky your officer give you one more chance...look carefully this time !

some of the case they just rejected application

Hi all,

I have a question. When is the RFV letter the same as PPR?

I got it this morning (for my wife who is my dependent and lives overseas), I live in Canada?

Any thoughts?

Yeah, so my case when I ordered the GCMS notes nothing was noted and everything looked fine, believe the first reviewer didnt catch it.
Didnt notice that the temp company that I worked before getting my permanent position wrote in the letter that I worked from Sept 2018 to Aug 2018 lol which doesn't even make sense. That's why they might have given me a chance to resubmit recent letter. Luckily the temp agency corrected it and provided me with new letter on the same day and i have submitted it thru mycic account already.
Thanks

It depends your passport...I have visa-exempted passport so they processed my CoPR in 1 business day ....it usually takes within 1 week for others

I also have valid US visa but the officer required me to do flagpole because this is my main reason to travel ....you can plan a real trip to US for few days and then come back to land.
For me, I went to thousand island border (its empty there during winter) and I didn't want to lie I was here for sightseeing or lunch, Officer will ask you how many day you will stay, purpose of trip, where you going etc...(it just doesn't make sense for me to drive 3 hours in mid day for sightseeing at no man land lol.)

Niagara Borders are strongly not recommended for landing.

If you have a trip outside of Canada, it is good to utilize this opportunity. Otherwise, flagpole is only 15 mins job and US officer assured nothing will happen in the future. They all understand what is flagpole and your reason.

perfect these makes sense i have Indian passport so i guess one week as its not visa exempt countries. and then i would also do the landing at 1000 islands because that's what everyone has recommended me to do and yes if us officer's are assured that nothing will go negative about you in us record than its good.

i was only worried about
1) every time i go to states( as i go very frequently at least once a month and max 4 times a month ) they might get these as negative and would ask me questions about these.
2) according to different opinions it takes longer for pr card at border landing and its faster in interview in local office.

but i guess not a much difference would also do 1000 islands landing.

The flagpole paper showed Admin refused: Landing in Canada as PR (I think most officer won't give you hard time or not even questioning on this)

However, since you mention you go to states very often, I guess you don't have to do flagpole on purpose...just travel as you are and come back for landing

My friend sent an email to schedule for landing interview and he waited about 3 weeks for a reply and the interview is 2 weeks after....I got my CoPR back and went to landing next day

1 day vs 5 weeks lol .... not sure the mailing speed thou

Hello Guys,
Called CIC today and got an update on my process, see below timeline and current status:

Sydney VO
AOR May 30, 2019
Medicals passed July 09, 2019
Criminality passed
Eligibility under review
Security not started

Long silence for months...
February 03, 2020 - Procedural of Fairness - the agency that I worked as temp where I am now full time wrote on my employment letter that I worked from Sept 2018 to Aug 2018 (which doesnt even make sense) so officer asked for new and recent letter.
Recent Letter uploaded on the same day.
February 05, 2020 Called CIC and:
Security has now been passed.
Eligibility still under review.

Fingers crossed that the fact that security has been passed means that eligibility is likely to be approved.

Thank you,

Guys,

Ghost update today.
Called CIC and the officer said that Eligibility has now been passed.
So now everything has been passed (Medicals, Elig, Criminal, Security).

Asked her about my PPR and she said that my exams were expired which is weird since I did them on April 2019.
Then I questioned her about it and she agreed that they are not expired, but she doesnt know why there's that note on the file.

So much drama ughhhh....
