Alright we'll keep trying we already have our Sponsor GCKey account and our PA GCKey account ready but cant find any applications to link when we search using the steps in this thread.

Maybe by Monday the applications will reflect on the system.

I'll let you guys know if I'm successful. Thank you!
Sometimes it takes a while. Keep trying. I have also heard of people calling CIC up to assist in finding the application on Gckey which they did successfully so maybe another option as last resort I guess

In the "Number of family members, including the primary applicant, that are part of this application" enter 2 if you are sponsoring a partner with no dependents, and enter 2+number_of_dependents if you are also sponsoring any dependents (your or your partner's kids).
Attention! Even though in the form IMM0008 you entered 1 as a number of family members including in the application (or 1 + number_of_dependents), you need to enter 2 when linking an application. I believe this is the most major issue people struggle with. Please make sure you entered 2 (and +1 per dependent if you have any).
THANK YOU SO MUCH for this information!! Nobody, nobody mentioned that before. I was able to link my app in a second this time.

I was finally able to link my PA's PR application to my account. Is there a way to link my Sponsorship application as well?

No, it can't be linked. But don't worry, SA is a very short process and it doesn't contain any steps. It's basically just a trigger "approved", that's it.

We have three children who are Canadian citizens so I did not include them as dependents. That means that I still say that the total number is 2, right? I have not successfully linked my application yet. :(

I have been waiting for update from embassy of Canada, Mexico since March 12, 2019(AOR2). My application received September 6, 2018. Literally been zero communication now. My CIC application login shows no update.

I recently discovered GC Keys. Will my lawyer be using GCKeys to check on latest update? Or will Mexico send them an email for any request? I see a lot of September application already getting PPR from the forums and I'm still waiting for aleast "some update".

I never got Sponsor approval letter, maybe it was sent to my lawyer and they never sent it to me, we don't even know if my wife passed medical exam which was finished in January 2019. Applicant is from Venezuela. Both first time marriage and same age. Known each other for almost 5 years 2 and 1/2 years of marriage.

I am having so many problems trying to link the application for my wife's residence permit to a GCKEY account. It is her account, we put in all information as it is in the documents we sent but nothing works. We have followed all the tips and even contacted support but nothing works. The strange thing is we have received documents that have her UCI in the form 1234-5678, my UCI is very different. On the site, when you have to put the UCI in, it shows you the format should be 1234-5678 but when we put her number in, it gives an error and says the number is not valid. Has anyone experienced anything similar?

How can we link our application if we only have AOR1 and the UCI of the Sponsor NOT the PA. Do we have to wait for the PA to receive his UCI in AOR2 if I'm not mistaken?

By the way we just received the AOR1 today so maybe there is a delay in the system reflecting the details?

Thanks
when did yu subbmited your file ?

I finally managed to link our application. It was so frustrating, so many things were possible to change a little bit. I finally used the simplest information and succeeded. The only part that was off a bit was my wife's passport number, in her passport and in the documents we sent, it was xx xxxxxx, with a space after the first 2 numbers, but to get the file to link, we had to remove the space.

Just seen this after I posted a thread- Not sure how to delete mine- but I will reply to this so it moves up on the forum.

This thread did not come up in my search - I got this from the April 2019 Outland group.

Thank you for creating- super helpful. ;-)
