Submitted passports a month ago on May 31 after PPR. Return tracker started today, ll get my passports in 2 more days. I am currently in US. Started giving Canadian interviews. I am about to get an offer, if I take it, I may have to move to Mississauga. Just want to know what ll be a good place to start to know more about the Canadian move so that there are no surprises in the end. Thanks.
Since we both have similar NOC's (mine is 2173), can you tell me what was your job hunt approach? Did you give interviews on Skype (or other such video conferencing tool)? What recruiting agencies did you contact?

I am also in US. I did soft landing last week. Although, most likely I will move to Canada in December 2019.
What I heard is Toronto area is fine. Toronto airport is in Mississauga.

231 days and counting... {yawn} My worry in all this wait is, what if our applications fall through the cracks given the newer submissions are attended to with full vigor

So my journey is finally over, I had my landing interview yesterday.
The process is very quick and simple, but didn't go as smooth as I was hopping. IRCC systems crashed so there was a bit of a wait and uncertainty of its going to be done or rescheduled... Was lucky and system were back up and running 30 min after my arrival.

Good luck to all of you! I'll still visit to follow up on your updates, especially from @SithLord

If we see June 2018 trend lots of remaining files (more than 10 percent of them) were cleared between day 220 to 250 ... Security screening ones only crossed 300 days ...
So in 8 months most of us should be cleared except RR or SS folks.

Let's see. I'm completing 250 days in 2 weeks.

Hi guys, posting this here as it is one of the most active threads and hoping this could help others.

I finally received the RFV email yesterday after nearly 10 months post AOR!

Here is my full timeline:

Category: FSW Inland
CRS: 535
ITA: Jul 25, 2018
AOR: Sep 5, 2018
MEP: Sep 27, 2018
ADR: RCMP Certificate - Sep 27, 2018
Criminality: Passed - Dec 13, 2018
Eligibility: RR (POF) - Dec 13, 2018
Eligibility & Security: Passed - May 30, 2019
RFV: Jun 25, 2019

My advice based on my experience:
1) Order GCMS notes after 3-4 months post AOR and then once a month. This is how I learned that my eligibility had RR for POF for a missing bank statement.
2) Submit documents proactively to clarify your situation if you have RR on anything. I proactively uploaded the bank statement that was missing in my application and I believe that this saved me from an even longer wait.
3) Call IRCC and ask for a detailed status update regarding your eligibility, criminality and security regularly (every 2-3 weeks for me) after 6 months post AOR. Ask them to send a reminder to case agents if things are dragging along. My eligibility and security were passed about 4 weeks after a reminder was sent. Not sure if it is a coincidence or not but one thing is for sure: calling and asking to send a reminder did not hurt.

If you eligiblity is met and you don't see a Review comment in the notes by case processing agent, you need not send it.
Buy if you want to know if you can send it or not, yes you can send it.
Thank you.. Eligibility says met.. But there is an RR for current employment.. Although my previous two employment suffice the crs score.. What do u suggest. Also previously I submitted an affidavit stating the reason that the company doesn't issue ref letters.. Will it conflict.?
Thanks

Still no reply after a month.
My AOR is Nov 12. I contacted them last month and they gave me this reply :
''We verified the information you provided regarding the status of your application and have forwarded it to the responsible office''
Should I get GCMS notes ?
The odd thing is that since I created my profile,there's never been a single update in it except for the medical exam.
So I got a reply for my email today which is pretty much like the old one, aside from an extra sentence this time :

''Thank you for contacting Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

We wish to thank you for your patience and to inform you that the information you have provided has been forwarded to the responsible office.

Your file should be reviewed shortly.


We hope the information provided is helpful in assisting you with your enquiry''

That's great, congratulations!!! Nearly 10 months of wait is insane :( you must be so happy and relieved! Were you ever told a due date in any of the calls you made?

Just got off the phone with an agent... She told me that my eligibility is “In process “ ... I asked her it was a review required earlier... But she said it is “in process” and is no longer a review required... I asked her to send a reminder to the officer but she said she couldn’t do it at the moment... but she assured me that I will get it soon
