I submitted mine and my wife's CEC express entry application on Dec 13th 2018 with all the required documents except my wife's criminal record check for Canada since she came to Canada in October 2018 for the first time. It has been only 5 months since she has been here in Canada. I didn't get her RCMP criminal records check done since her stay wasn't longer than six months at the time when I submitted our application. Now CIC requested for her criminal record check today. It's written in their request letter that you don't need to get your criminal record check done if you haven't stayed in Canada for more than six months. Then why are they requesting for it?
