Yeah but many people that have been approved haven’t updated the spreadsheet yet...hence why I keep asking.
I didn't see your name on the Inland March tab. Perhaps if you added your information to the document and we all encourage others then we would all have a better resource for more accurately viewing time lines. The Excel document is there to help us all. And if anyone needs a hand understanding how it works or how to add their information I'd gladly offer to help.

Rather than asking this question each day I would suggest we all use the Excel document as a point of references and would encourage everyone to keep their information up to date. For those who need the link you can find it here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LxDFjvZn-XR9uZpGbPTORYKQf0BMquSXNw0RvmqvZNU/edit#gid=2079961909

For quick future access, it's also the last post on the first page of this forum.
Hello,

Sorry I might be missing something here, I can't find this link on last post on the first page of this forum. Where exactly is the actual thread or post of this document? Thanks for posting I have been trying to find it last couple days.

Hello,

At the top and bottom of each forum page there are navigation buttons to move through the Forum pages. The first button says Prev the next set of buttons starts with 1, the ... then the numbers that represent the three most current pages. If you click the 1 it should take you to this page:

https://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/threads/march-2020-inland-spouse-sponsorship.682394/

The last post on that page, above the navigation pages and where you can comment is from Lacey. The post contains the link to the Spreadsheet. This is how I quickly navigate to it (rather than a bookmark).

In the Excel page there are tabs at the bottom for each month and the type of immagration request (Inbound vs Outbound). If you scroll past the Outbound options you'll find the March Inbound tab. This tab also contains a link to a WhatsApp group if you use WhatsApp and are interested in more up to the moment information.

Hello! We received:
- Dec 11, 2020: OWP (actual physical permit came couple days later in mail)
- Jan 6, 2021: AOR ... an email “This confirms that your application to Sponsor a Member of the Family Class has been received by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) on 2020/04/29 on behalf of the following member(s): xxxxx” I believe this is the AOR but not entirely sure lol
- Jan 11, 2021: Medical request

couple of questions!
1. Is it normal for medical request to come before biometrics request? I’m sorry if this has been answered. I’ve tried reading through many forums and haven’t really found anyone asking this question.
2. At what point in the application process is the spouse typically approved? I would have thought they would have approved the spouse first before they requested more things from the applicant. I’m just confused on the timeline of all these steps honestly. Any insight is greatly appreciated :)

We receive a request for additional information today. They are looking for details on my husbands mandatory military service. It's Form IM5546. It's just a fill in the blanks form that he needs to fill in and send back.

Take away, someone has been looking at our application. I hope the same for everyone else in March.

Same here. Was at 85% yesterday. Now it's gone. The site has been really buggy lately - getting "Internal Server Error" about 75% of the time when clicking on links or logging in.

Hopefully it's just a technical hiccup that will be resolved soon.
