Hello @mcdonal22 - I just saw your post. The last activity I had on my account was around the 20th of November 2022. There has been no movement in my GCKey account since then. However, when I called IRCC in Jan, the call centre agent said all was complete. This was reconfirmed by another IRCC call centre agent in Feb. They also said that they cannot send a message about my case to the visa office since it is within processing times. Now my application is at 16 months. I fully expect my processing time to go over 20 months. It is a dismal state of affairs. This is having an impact on many aspects of my life and that of my family.It's been over 100 or maybe 110 days since since I got AOR+MP. Nothing after that. No ADR or PAL. Last I checked with IRCC on phone, they said Application is in background check (same as gckey BG status) and PVO is Etobicoke. I thought since I'm within the processing timeline, there is not much I can do at this point.. So I decided I will NOT log into my gckey account to check status.. but I end up checking 3~4 times a day (more than before). I think something is wrong with me or maybe something in the unknown is happening I don't know what it is. Anyways.. @SCW - How is it going for you?
About the mental strain, I want to tell you that it is very bad. I too have made many resolutions not to check my account more than once a day. However, there are many days when I check it multiple times a day. I also know that there are many more like us. So, the only thing I can say is that there is nothing wrong with any of us; we are stuck in a system that is wrong.
Can I please ask which stream you are in?
