Usually, they would send your case to CSIS as a normal procedure for ss. It could be "they haven't sent your application to CSIS", but eventually, they will. This way, I don't think it is a good sign, because you will have to wait longer.

But it's hard to say. Good luck anyway. The average processing time for SS is 6-8 months in recent days.
Thanks for reply , I though they don’t send all SS to CSIS , anyway is there anyway to know if they going to send it to CSIS or not ? and when ?
if I call CIC can I find out the deadline for Ss ? Thanks

CIC will not give a deadline for SS, whoever receives your call, it will be a very generic answer. it could take months to years for the ss and CIC is not involved in the process, (it is carried out by a third party) blablabla....
Be patient is probably the best advice I can give.

Anyway, as always, good luck!

Check my signature for full timeline , and yes , It's still "We are reviewing your .....", never changed even after PPR.
Hmmm, interesting..
All in all, It is a positive signal to see our friends getting PPR after asking for additional document. Thank you for sharing your info with us & Have a great time in Canada

Question for those of you who've ordered CSIS notes,
I got mine yesterday,
it has three section,

SSRN Details: mentions that status is completed and that request date as may 22nd 2019,
Case Conclusion: mentions personal info and also the request date which is the same,
Recommendation/Advice: which has one field: Issued on: 2019-09-08.

Does this mean my security screening was started on may 22nd and finished on Sept. 8th?

Now my account received an update on Jan 22nd and when I called I was told that the security screening just finished.
Was it the CBSA that was holding on to my account from Sept to January?
wtf?
why?
Just to answer my own question:
Who give a fuck?
I got the landing interview email today.
Precisely 8 months in security screening.

Bro which notes should i order for a detailed overview of what’s going on with my security? CBSA or CSIS notes? My ss started in July 2019 and I am still waiting for BG check completion

I'm now 5.5 month into my SS. My 6-month processing time ended in early February. Really hope mine can be finalized within 6-8 months..

Dear all,
About 70 days ago, I was happy for receiving "pre-arrival letter" and was hopping to get PPR soon, but I got a CV request instead.
Is there anyone with the same condition, who was asked for CV after receiving pre-arrival?

Hi there,
How do you know that you have been in SS since 5.5 months ago.
Have you seen this in your CSIS notes?
I have ordered both CBSA and CSIS notes. My CBSA notes show that my eligibility and criminality were both passed on Sept 4. I was asked to submit my CV on Sept 5, and CBSA notes also say my security was initiated on Sept 5. No update since then.

I have a question:

Is the SS time people have been mentioning here the total time since security starts? Or it only refers to the CSIS portion? My security was initiated on Sept 5, but CSIS seemed to have begun its involvement on Oct 2.

I know two people whose SS was finished within 5 months in 2019, and in both cases the SS time (5 months) refers to the total security time, not the time the case was with CSIS.
