This is much better. I have highlighted all the good points above. The security will read 'Not Started' until the application is finalized and you get PPR AFAIK. From the information that you have provided, looks like your security checks has begun and is underway.

In some cases, your case could be referred to CSIS for further scrutiny (As a part of random quality check or if there is a name / DOB match in the database etc). In that case, CSIS has to do further checks and then provide a report to IRCC after which IRCC will continue further processing of your application. See if you find anything in the notes that indicate your file was forwarded to CSIS (And I really hope this isn't the case).

Just curious, do you have a long international travel history?
Just got another GCMS note which is almost identical with the previous one :( the former was 96 whereas the latter is 97 - still identical.

HI. I updated my account, but now it is stuck at "processing update" . Does it mean that my profile is not eligible for the next draw? Please help. I am getting so nervous at the moment.

Hello guys! I am having a question regarding completing the Express Entry profile. If my spouse is not indicated as coming with me, but he has a brother in Canada, can I claim that I have a relative too? In the options, there is no 'brother-in-law'. Are brother and brother-in-law the same?

I hope it's already resolved. From my experience, it took several hours for my updates to get processed. But still the original submission date has not changed. So, I assume, they look at the original submission date, not the date it was updated.

Quick question and if anyone has time to respond to it that would be much appreciated: if one has a valid job offer and uses its points, will the employer wait however long it takes for the express entry application to finalize? How does this having a job offer work for someone who is *not* in Canada and hoping to apply to the EE system? Are there any employers who is willing to wait that long for the applicant to finally have her/his PR card ready? Thanks in advance.

Hi folks,

I'm moving to a new address within Toronto, so my question is how to update the address in my PR application which is currently is in progress.
I tried online but it says:

  • Please be sure the information you entered is correct and then try again.
Please suggest the next step?

Do applicants who have a Canadian postgraduate degree need to do a WES evaluation for their undergrad for their express entry?
Depends on your PG degree/diploma. If it is a Masters degree, then you can just claim points for it directly. If it is a 1 year or 2 year diploma, then in order to claim points for two or more degrees, you will need to get your undergrad degree assessed.
