From what I know, most of our applications ; eligibility and security are NOT STARTED. Its the same with me and I am Nov 2019 applicant. Honestly, I dont know if MPs are playing with words or if the GCMS notes are not properly updated to reflect the exact status.IRCC stated on the email that "The assessment to determine if the sponsored person meets the eligibility requirements has not been initiated yet." and "The security verifications have not been initiated for the applicant". While my Mp office is saying "pending review of sponsored person's eligibility and security verifications and nothing abnormal is noted on file." So now, I am so confused since has not been initiated and pending are two different things.
Definitely, CPC-Mississauga is unable to complete eligibility and security checks for most applicants. And I don't know what is stopping them from doing this.
The IRCC agents or the MPs are not letting us know the real deal. All we can do is just wait.
