CIC receieved my application on September 6 2018 and my application was transferred to Mexico on March 12, 2019(AOR2). Haven't heard from them since and I made an appointment with my MP this Monday. My wife is from Venezuela and her passport is about to expire. Literally impossible for her to get new passport from Venezuelan government. They haven't even emailed us if my wife need to renew passport or not. September 2019 will be 12 months and she needs to leave the country before November 2019. I really don't get how is that enough time to even complete the application if they ask for passport request at around August 2019 to October 2019.
