Which site did you order through? I'd be happy with 45 days for mine.

IRCC, haha. Is it true you get more security info from CBSA?
I am not planning on ordering another GCMS now. Looking at the wait times. Ill probably get my application processed by the time I get a reply for my gcms status.

Because those two offices handle the largest number of applications. Specifically:

CIO Sydney accepts ALL applications (it is THE Intake office) in the following categories:
  • FSW
  • FST
  • CEC
  • PNP
  • Start-Up Visa
  • Quebec Investors or Entrepreneurs
  • QSW
  • Immigrant Investor Venture Capital Class
  • Federal Self-Employed Persons and Quebec Selected Self-Employed Persons
CPC Sydney processes:
  • applications for permanent resident cards (new and renewals)
  • citizenship applications (new, renouncing, revoking and resuming)
CPC Ottawa processes:
  • visitor visa (temporary resident visa) applications from within Canada for applicants with valid status (students or temporary foreign workers only).
  • permanent resident visa applications from the United States and Canada, after they have been received and deemed complete by CPC Mississauga or CIO Sydney.
The OSC Ottawa processes the following applications:
  • International Experience Canada work permits
  • In-Canada temporary resident applications submitted online
  • Verification of Status (VOS)
  • Replacement of valid temporary resident documents
  • Amendment of immigration documents and of valid temporary resident documents
The vast majority of applications for any sort of Canadian status, especially PR, flow through Sydney first, then mostly to Ottawa.
Much appreciated! :D
Thank you! :)

They seem to be restarting draws for International Experience Canada on September 13th
This is hilarious. Seriously, what the actual fuck. There's updates on everything except FSW, and now tourists and working holiday visas are categorized over fsw too?

All these visas are processed very easily, so now they have this idiotic circular logic of "FSW takes time to process, so let's delay it more, so it take more time to process"

Well their next draw is next week, hopefully this means the next express entry draw is also all categories.
