Hi Everyone, Let’s connect on this thread if your PNP paper based file is processing in Centralized Intake office in Sydney, Nova Scotia. As you know this office was closed in mid March due to pandenmic. According to the Nova Scotia government website, they are opening non-essential businesses in the first phase which will start from June 5 and hopefully IRCC also open thier Sydney office. If you are waiting for AOR, PPR ,let connect here.

Paper-Based PR Application nominated by Ontario PNP - Masters Graduate Stream.
  • AR :- 27th June 2019
  • AOR :- 23rd July 2019
  • Pri-arrival Letter :- 18th December 2019
  • Biometrics :- Exempted
  • Medical Request :- Not Yet (its been almost 11 months)
  • GCKEY :- 63% process bar completed

Since then there is no Update into GCKEY as well as Status in ECAS is "In Process". I think so they are processing my BG Check as in GCKey it says: " We are Processing you background check...." I have never call IRCC or contacted them through Web form.

Is Sydney NS working on pnp files???
Thier Sydney Office is closed since mid march. Nova Scotia is opening some non essential businesses today and hopefully they reopen IRCC office as well. We will find out this in next week when they start sending AOR for paper based applicants.

The question is "If they are going to reopen"
I don't see any government offices planning reopening soon..

Yeah, most inland applicants those applied between Mar 2019 and June 2019 received MR in September 2019 but those applied after that still waiting for MR. are you planning to go for upfront medical ?

They are working from home maybe ?

question is why all paper-based applications that were uploaded to their database are not processed anymore..

Well, that is our assumption on how they work. May be they are prioritizing EE applicants due to 6 months timeframe. They are clearing the pending workload for EE (just to maintain 6 months timeline) before moving to Paper based files.

Well we will never know until we will see some updates..
I don't think they will publish anything to the news but it's only waiting to hear from someone that received AOR, MR, Decision etc..
