Hi brother,Find a local MP to help you if you are in Canada, or seek Ralph Goodale's office for help if not. You could raise a web from every week (or keep calling), and if you got a lovely agent, he or she may help you send a reminder to your office and this may expedite your application. I saw someone's criminality and the other factor (I got which one) never began but the officer started and passed them like within one day. GL.
I called CIC couple of days ago and they sent a reminder to Montreal visa office to which Montreal office replied saying awaiting officer to be assigned.
Criminality : In Progress.
Security & Eligibility : Not started!
AOR : 1st Feb, 2019
Category: CEC Inland
Question is will this reminder expedite the process?
Note : There are no red flags or review required on file!
I would appreciate your reply on this!
