Sorry to hear that! Did they ask for any ADR or PFL? Or straight up rejection?
straight up rejection. I had called a few times before where they said everything was fine as well. My background check was completed January 29th and I was told that was the hold up, when actually it was my employment.

I've just got a ghost update and realized that my medical status has changed from "medical passed" to "you do not need a medical exam". What does it mean? What will happen next? My AOR was Dec 21.
You will see this system update when your medicals expire. IRCC will either extend your medical validity. In that case status will change back to Medical Passed. Or they will request a re-medicals. In that case status will change to something like 'We have sent you a medical request form....'

That sucks, I thought they would ask something in cases like these. I dont know how appeals work, but can you do that with updated job duties letter? Or are you gonna re-apply?

That really sucks.. I'm sorry! I'm no expert but I'm pretty sure you have good grounds for appeal if they never asked for an ADR or communicated any issue with you, so long as you can provide updated employment documentation. I'm sure I've read about rejection cases that get reconsidered this way.. at least it's worth a shot..

I totally agree... Get a lawyer and send updated and detailed job descriptions to better evidence the match with your NOC. Wish you good luck.

The fact is I have still 3 months before my medical expires. That's the reason why I dont understand this change.

Hello Guys,

What is the current status on soft landing. I saw a post where a person was frustrated due to his entry denial as he was not moving to Canada permanently immediately and was asked to apply for PR when moving.

I plan to do soft landing, but to be on safer I can stay permanently in Canada if there is a risk of soft landing

That’s scary. So all that procedure Fairness thing is not real.

Hi All!

I am flying to Toronto on 11.10.19 - 06.11.19. Anyone going to be there during that period?
Not sure about the rest, but I hardly know anyone out there and it would be awesome to meet people who are probably just as lost as I would be! :p

A Ghost Update! Finally they touched my file!

My background status changed to: We are processing your background check. We will send you a message if we need more information.

But my eligibility still shows "we are reviewing your eligibility". I had uploaded paystubs and job duties letter again in July when I got to know that the ofiicer was not convinced I had work experience and marked Not Met back in March (as per GCMS notes I verified this).

Hopefully they accept the updated letters and move forward with my application.

Refusal letter today.
Due to personal circumstances I have had to go back to the UK anyway. So it's a nice bit of closure as I wait for my flight back home. But I wanted to share the reasons mine was rejected to help others.
My previous letter of employment was insufficient in outlining evidence of main duties. So look up that NOC code and get your employers to outline the required experience.

Anyways good luck on your Canada journey! I have had an amazing 2.5 years out here and you are all in for a great adventure!

Best of luck x
Sorry to hear that Ruthio. Like someone said earlier if you were never notified for additional information you have good chances with an appeal. In fact, have you ever asked for your GCMs notes? In these notes or when you called and they told you everything was fine, were you informed about what was your eligibility status exactly (Review? Recommended pass?)
