That’s odd. Mine has always said that. This process is confusing
For us, it said "We have not started your Background Check. We will let you know when this changes" since the beginning.....and today it changed to "We are processing your background check."

I received the transfer email from the Canadian application office with only the name of my child, and my name did not appear in it. Is this normal and the number also includes me or my child only

We got appointment letters two days after we received the email that appointment has been booked and you shall receive appointment letter.
FYI our appointment confirmation mail was sent on Saturday 2pm.
Appointment letter at Monday morning 2pm. (Indian time)
I ll suggest you to wait and drop a mail meanwhile from your registered mail id
Thank you will wait.

Our application was received on March 23rd but till now I have not got any updates besides the temporary number that I was given back in August.
When I called during the first week of October, I was told by the agent that my file has been opened but nobody knows if an officer is working on it or not. I have called a few times after that and they are still saying its in prospective stage. I am missing my wife and it is extremely frustrating not knowing whats going on. I really don't know what to do. Why cant they just be more transparent?
I have the same experience. I have spoken to my MPs office to see whether they can get an honest answer. I am not hopeful about it.

I have the same issue as well march 19 2020 applications, but I don't have a temporary number last contact to my mp was 2 week ago and her reply was my file check was complete, and It should assign to a agent then I'll be getting AOR very soon don't know how true that is anyway

But what I'm seeing I don't see anyone from March getting AOR still they seem to move on

How long does it take to get Bio/Med request after AOR?
For us tomorrow is going to be 9 months since AOR and we're still waiting for any movement at all (including medicals)

SAME here too . VFS Jalandhar is doing this to many sadly. I think they are doing this unintentionally by replying that "An appointment Letter was sent on ------- to your e-mail" for public inquiries as I learned from another friend too.
Also only thing my wife got was a TEXT msg. And I am NOT sure it will be accepted.
EDITED: We wrote many emails , finally an appointment letter came as an attachment with similar letters via email
