MARCH 2020 *Outland* Spousal Sponsorship

Contacted my MP complaining that many April, June, July and even August applicants had received their AOR's, most of the March applicants had received their AOR's but me being a March 30th applicant had not heard anything, his office looked into the matter and their response after contacting the IRCC was that my spouse in Pakistan was currently being investigated.

Does anyone know what this means? How does the IRCC go about its investigation? What is involved? Can the Canadian High Commission in Pakistan give her a call on her cell phone to speak to her?
Investigated for what? This does not make any sense.

The first step in the sponsorship application is completeness check and then sponsorship approval. Only once the sponsor is approved they move to principal applicant's eligibility. I would suggest asking the MP office to give more detail on the investigation as it makes no sense whatsoever.

Does it then makes sense that who so ever from March has not heard from IRCC is currently having their spouse being evaluated first like Background Check, etc? Opposite to what the usual routine is where the Sponsor is being evaluated first?
And I am seeing a trend that all the applicants from Pakistan are not getting AORs in March. Isn't this a bit unusual? Like they don't send AORs usually by country.

I have definitely been noticing a trend of what countries are getting movement and which are not. I hate to say it but is there a possibility that the IRCC staff checking for completeness are favouring applications over others? My PA is from Ireland so it is probably stuck between a lot of other files considering I am only one of two Irish PA's in the March group when looking at the spreadsheet. I'm starting to lose my marbles. People in freaking August are getting AOR now.

I am from India and from March but still waiting on my file. So i dont agree that it is by country as many indians have got AOR but not all indians

This is very much normal and there are way too many people ahead of you - March, April, May, June, July. With the current randomness of application processing, you might as well see some updates on your file.

Hi, Quick update on my end:
ECAS updated for Principal Applicant to "Application Received" from "In Process". Hopefully, the AOR2 email comes around in the coming few days.

Details of my application can be found in the excel tracker - March Outland sheet under my profile name.
