Yes, we are waiting. We did the medical 3 days ago and submitted the application at the same day.
Okay. I called my panel physician today asking them if they submitted my report. Which they did on march 09 but when I check online the status of my exam it still shows not submitted.

So make sure you call them 7 to 10 days after the test. But this might also vary for individual circumstances.

Do anyone know when I will get BIL. It’s been over 15 hours, can you reply please @legalfalcon. Thanks
The BIL is sent 30-45 days post AoR. Also check if you are exempt from biometrics. See Page 1 of the thread:

4. I have received Biometrics Instructions Letter (BIL), but all IRCC offices in Canada or in my country are closed, and I am unlikely to comply with the 30 days time frame to provide the biometrics.
IRCC has informed that the biometric instruction letter (BIL) cannot be amended and IRCC will continue to advise applicants that they have 30 days from the date of the letter to give their biometrics. In the most recent policy change, IRCC has informed that if you have given biometrics in the last 10 years, you are exempt from giving them again. To check if your previous biometrics are valid, you can check the status at <https://onlineservices-servicesenligne.cic.gc.ca/extapp/bioStatusQuery?fbclid=IwAR2XOMUJJMcdwNWG8awkgF_u7OGylXTxRqhCM_g23tSqq1uJVhC2KyRv1aI>

As per IRCC's annual 2019 annual report it takes 8-9 months for an application to process. This was pre-COVID
https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/corporate/publications-manuals/annual-report-parliament-immigration-2019.html

The new 2020-2021 reports will be released after March. All see page1 of the thread.

How long did it take to process an Express Entry application?
Table 35 displays the time, in months, that IRCC took to process 80% of applications under each program. In 2019, IRCC did not meet the processing standard of finalizing 80% of all applications sourced via Express Entry within six months. The processing time for Express Entry, overall, was eight months. As an alternative measure of processing times, 60% of applications finalized in the 12-month period ending on December 31, 2019, were completed within the six-month service standard.

Table 35: Processing Times for Express Entry applications finalized by year and immigration category, in months
Program201720182019
Canadian Experience Class457
Federal Skilled Worker469
Provincial/Territorial Nominee669
Federal Skilled Trades6712
All Programs558
Source: CIC_EDW (MBR) as of January 3, 2020
Data is operational and as such should be considered preliminary and subject to change.

  • Processing times refer to the time in which 80% of applications were finalized by IRCC. The processing time is measured from the day a complete application is received until the time a final decision is made by an immigration officer.

Hi, I have one thing to share, so one of my friends applied for their PR back in April, 2020 from Alberta and he is still waiting for the finial decision, while my other friend he applied in august 2020 from Saskatchewan and he got his PR exactly in 6 months. So my question is does that mean processing time for Alberta is slow and was wondering if anyone could tell if they got PR in six moths in Alberta, they both applied in CEC. Please reply @legalfalcon

Each application is processed on its own merits, and factors such as the complexity of the application, the VO where the application is being processed and the IRCC processing in general all plays a role in determining how quick the application is processed. Also, some checks are done by third parties whic can take longer, such as security which is done by CBSA / CSIS. To read on security, see https://bit.ly/3apWglN
