So, my application can be accessed online and it says it was received on July 17, but I haven't received the AOR yet.

Checked the ecas today and looks like my application started processing on January 12, 2021.

Please updated the spreadsheet.

One thing, I found that my current home address is different than the current mailing address in ecas. Home address showing the one in Canada and mailing address showing my address from the country of birth. Is that normal?

Hello,
Today I received a phone call from CiC the lady on phone said that you know that your home country passport expired, do you have any plan to travel? I said no I have not any plan to travel due to COVID, she said ok. I asked her can this issue delay my application process she said no. Anybody in the forums have received such call from CIC, or they ask anybody for their passport expiry etc.
Your comments please thank you
I believe it’s not an issue to apply with an expired passport (when not specified) so long as you clearly comment that you do not have any plan to travel. I know people that have done it in the past (for citizenship application). You probably didn’t comment on your travel plan and the reason you didn’t renew your passport before applying, which were the reasons she called you. You should be excited though, that tells you that things are looking good for you.

Finally, my ECAS status has been changed to "Application received on 31st July". Thinking of calling them tomorrow to receive the application number and primary communication method. Could someone please provide me with the phone number and the number codes to reach an agent?

Also, could someone please update the spreadsheet for me? Thanks

I had the same issue. Click the Update Home Address link and update your home / mailing address. It will take 2-3 business days to update the system.

Congrats. It's an AOR. Call IRCC customer care and ask them to share the application number and when you will receive AOR by email.
Also, ask them what's the primary comm mode. Is it email or mail?

you can also read my post of last week where I have explained well on this matter
I called them today, and the agent told me there is no application number! So I assume the Ecas status is not an AOR. she said your application is uploaded to the system and we will send an email once the processing started! I asked them to update my mailing address and to send all communication via email.

Well, yes. I would say it is a preview for the upcoming good news :)

Just to confirm, receiving an AOR or application received in ECAS (NO AOR email) means that they have checked the documents and the applications won't be returned?

That's bit strange. We have around 10-15 of us in July applicants... were given the application number on the phone told that we will be getting the communication soon in email or mail. as it's in queue. Also, told that this is done post validation of documents.

The status will change to in progress once it's sent to local office.(Ex: Toronto, Montreal and so on..)

@NMontD , I called this morning to get my application number and they also told me that my file was just opened and entered into the system. application number is not available yet. I would get the AOR in upcoming weeks.
