My medical expiry was on Feb 28th and they issued my CoPR yesterday. They have given me the landing visa until Dec 2020. I think they extended my medical. Hope it works out for you the same way and you don't have to go through re-medical.
My medical expiry was on 6 may, they asked me to re-med...
anyway congratulations !

Thanks! I believe that the 1 year medical validity starts from the day you visit the doctor and not when its marked as passed in the application (I assumed that you are mentioning your medical passed date in application as your AOR is Mar 22 before which you might have finished visiting the doctor for medical).

Hope you get your ppr soon!

Absolutely, it was accepted by IRCC the 6 may 2019. So would be valid till may 2020... Don't understand why re-medical

Hi folks,

I figured out the after I got approved the expired date and issued date is for the PR Visa counterfoil, not for the PR card. It's because I saw that it only has one year. That means you have to move to Canada and use that visa to get into / land Canada.
Yep, that’s right.

Hello again folks,
Here is my detailed timeline for those who are still waiting:
AOR Mar 23, 2019 (I applied as a principal applicant and my wife as a dependant while we were in Canada)
Returned back home for a family visit (I left and my work permit was in process and my vise was expired. This is not the right thing to do but this is what had happend)
Medical passed on May 5th, 2019

***Long silence ***

Sent a webform on Aug 30, 2019 inquiring about my application and highlighting that I have a potential job opportunity (I did not have a job offer yet and it was just a verbal offer that is why I did not attach any thing to the webform)

ADR on Sept 9 about my experience and they were asking the typical request of a contract or bank statement showing the salary, etc.
Submitted on Sept 16

No updates after that

Sent another webform on Sept 23 (6 months line was passed) asking about the status and no update since I submitted the required docs. It was similar to the webform sent before but added a sentence about the 6 months.

Sept 26 got an update in the background check status(mostly my criminality passed on that day)

On Oct 1, I got a response saying that my background check is in process (which I already knew because of the GU) and the officer is verifying the infomration i provided for my eligibility.

Another webform on Oct 21 and got a generic response

Another webform on Nov 18 (I was a bit firm in my language and asked specific questions about dates and status for background check)
got a response as follow:
  • The security background verification has not been initiated.
  • The criminal background verification is currently valid.
Another webform on Nov 20 saying that I got an interview and I attached the official email for the interview

GU on Nov 28 (security passed :) )

Another webform on Dec 3 saying that I got the job and attached the official job offer

Dec 12 got a message on my account to do Biometrics????????????? Do not know why (I am an inland applicant) but I paid the fees on the same day. And waiting for the information letter.
At this point, my visa and work permit were ready and to be honest I knew that I will get the PR very soon but I was worried about other stuff.
Returned to Canada and did the biometrics in Canada on Dec 18
GOT THE PPR ON DEC 20 Alhamdullilah (thanks God)

This is a very detailed timeline. I hope it could help anybody. I called the IRCC several time using my Canadian number and it cost me a lot.
in my case, I think the webforms were a good cheap option still take time but it was more effective than calls.

One last thing, the PR journey is very case-specific espcially for the people who wait for long time. Do not rely on others experience. However, you can get inspired by reading stories from other people and have that feeling "I am not alone".

Thanks everybody and good luck everybody

Hi mesho,
Your story is very inspiring indeed. Congrats for the new journey to start.
I am not sure whether you are still active in this forum, I have a quick question.

I made an inquiry through webform as well last week. and I got the reply this Monday, which is surprisingly fast...
it says "The background verifications are currently valid."
Does that mean I have passed a security check? The wording "valid" is really confusing. It is not "in progress".

A little more info about my case.
CEC inland applicant. AOR Mar 5th 2019.
Ordered notes, I was under security screening. And the timeline is "uncertain" for SS.


Thanks and have a great day.

how do you know SS in your notes...I ordered a note and didn't know how to check SS (Do they put SS on your security?)

There would be a section where they put a S.15(1) mark on security.
Or if you call IRCC, the representative can tell you if they have already initiated your ss. A really nice rep may tell you the date they started your ss. (but that could only be the date they sent the request to CBSA, the one who is actually doing the SS)

Another way, you can submit a web form on IRCC to make an inquiry about your case.
Please ask a very specific question to be better answered without just generic answers, like I would like to know the process of my background check. Could you please let me know when did you start my security check etc.
From my experience, it is much faster through the webform. Ordering notes could take forever... 100+ days for my case.
But the reply through webform is usually very generic.

Hope this helps.

I haven't heard anything from IRCC since forever. Express Entry is just one big scam, there's nothing express about this application.
