Question - do they return applications if something is missing? Like even if it is a shopping day trip to US?
They return applications if you forgot to include a document like representative form or language evidence, or if you have gaps in your addresses/work history, or if you left blank fields in the form but the questions did apply to you.

Missing trips from calculator will pop up on your interview, if your entry dates in calculator do not match the entry dates that they have on record.

Hmmm.... thanks for the information. I am hoping it doesn't come back to me, there is a gap of about two months between my two jobs, which is explained when they read through my travel history but I didnt explicitly write it under work history tab

Really? I did not notice it in the June spreadsheet. What were the reasons? I remember one person ticked "yes" to all criminality/terrorism questions by mistake and another one forgetting the representative form, but I do not believe they are in June batch.
Someone mentioned a returned application bacause of number of days "no details".... you may have a look at both May and June sheets, comments part.

Such a period could rather be questioned in the interview, it shouldn't cause a return normally.

Yes, I took a look but was not very clear about reasons from comments. Do you mean they did not put reason for travel in calculator? Or they forgot to attach calculator?

Wow, getting scared. This is the worst part of the wait as we do not even have the ECAS number to check online :eek:

There has been an increase in delay of AOR, this is because people are rushing to send in application before the floodgate open in Fall where we expect to have a surge of at least 800% in number of applications due to the fact that there are 300K immigrants admitted each year recently and most people suddenly can count their time studying or visiting canada, the reduction is equivalent to several years of applications combined. Those who submit after the Fall 3/4 kicks in can expect to have significant delay of years before they get AOR

Add on top of those IRCC employees going on vacation during June/July/August.

Congrats! Can you provide the details of your timeline/location/number of details please?

Can some one add this to the spreadsheet?

I am definitely one of those people who wanted to get their application in process before the floodgates open...... you are saying the process time will increase to more than 12 months?
