I just got alerted in my profile that my application was denied... im shaking right now, how could this have happened?!?? I did everything right, I submitted all the documents and forms correctly... and i have been waiting for so long.. Nov 17th Outland AOR Sydney NS office. What the hell just happened? are they just rejecting applicants who are still waiting? What the fuck is going on??

So thats it? Just like that its over? Does anyone know if rejections are happening for other Outland applications from 2020? Is there a way to appeal the decision? Or do i have to start from scratch?

This is utter nonsense. I kept so many plans on hold since 2019 thinking that this will come through, but not only has there been an insane delay on the final decision, they actually rejected me. I don’t believe this. What an utter disappointment, what was the point of spending all this time and effort and money on this fucking process if it was all for nothing? I feel destroyed and completely hopeless. My future is a big black hole with this news now.

to all those still waiting, please don’t feel disheartened reading this, but just be prepared for anything cause i have no idea how they are making decisions. I am so upset right now. If there is no way to appeal the decision, no fucking chance im applying again from scratch. fuck that. Good luck guys, don’t do this at the cost of your mental health. That’s all i can say.
You can request for the refusal letter or basis of refusal on their main office. Maybe they will reply to you on ASAP

Have you ever received PAL (pre-arrival letter)?

i have no idea what happened. i have been religiously monitoring my email for any alerts or communication from them since the day i submitted my application in the EE pool, but I didn't receive anything until today. Yes thats what ive heard too, before they reject, they usually send that letter you mentioned asking for the candidate to furnish documents or provide more info.
I never received anything like that and i just spent hours checking my email inbox, phone messages, physical mailbox and mail and verifying they didnt send me anything. Months ago i sent a webform request to ask about the status of my application, which i never heard back from. No, i havent been able to request GCMS notes because i am not in Canada and i dont know anyone personally currently in Canada who can help with this. i only got an alert in my mail today saying your profile has been updated and when i logged in and checked it said Rejected. Just imagine, i thought when i saw the email alert that profile was updated that it was ppr and that my application was approved. log in and i see fucking rejection. and before anyone says check again, i can fucking read i know the difference between approved and rejected.
I have raised a webform request again today asking for some more explanation but given their track record, i don't expect an immediate response. Now I have to wait till Monday to be able to call their center which is usually impossible to get to. Each time i have tried reaching out to them over phone in past i get the message "too many callers, try again" or whatever.
This is came out of nowhere and was very random. it was the first piece of communication ive had from them since i submitted biometrics more than a year ago. I have no idea what the fuck is going on. At this point, given the way this has been handled, i don't see my application going forward. I mean, why the fuck would they update my application status with reject without any notice or reason? It makes no sense. Maybe their emails are queued up in their outbox and in the coming days I will get that letter they were supposed to send? I don't know. This is fucking ridiculous i have no idea what to do anymore. this is nonsense, this was never meant to be and if they knew so from the beginning, why did they waste my time and money...
It is so disappointing. Did you get AOR and
Wefrom response?

Hi, I am also FSWO. Your security hasn't even been started after 1 and a half year post-AOR??
According to the last GCMS I received in February which was generated in the first week of January 2021, security still not started and criminality in progress due to LVO requesting biometric from my unaccompanying spouse one year ago (PA criminality is passed) - Then the pandemic hit and my application untouched since.

Extremely disappointed to say the least. I am planning to send a follow up email to my LVO in May although I doubt if it will yield any benefit.

I've just ordered GCMS but would like to know what else I can do in the meantime. Some people seem to have done remedical but I've never been asked to do that even though my medical would have expired in Nov 2020, cos I took it in Nov 2019. My AOR is 31 Oct 2019. Should I have received instructions to do remedical or is it something that we just do knowing that the old medical has expired?
And also, when I sent in my application, I had just started working in Australia for a few months (I'm from Malaysia), so I didn't need to include the Australian police cert. But I've now been working in Australia for almost 2 years now. They would need my Australian police cert too now, right? Should I apply for one and do remedical without waiting for instructions, and if so, do I just upload onto GC account? Would they know that I've uploaded anything and check it?

I received an email today asking me to do a survey about CIC.
It reads: We would like to hear about your experience with Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada. Our records indicate that you have recently received a decision from us on an application. The survey is voluntary and will only take about 15 minutes to complete.

Although it's a survey, the fact that it says record shows I recently received a decision got me intrigued. Is it a scam or does it mean that in the records, I'm supposed to have received a decision? Would appreciate any input on this. Thanks

They all got remed request previously. I m confused whether they will issue ppr without remed or not. If not then we have a long way to go!
At least for me, as I didn’t get even a single update in my profile after dec 19, 2019, which is the biometric date.
My AOR is 31 Oct 2019, no update since biometrics, and medical showing review in Nov 2019, passed medical. Also no remedical request.

There are some that proactively did remedical and still waiting. No point doing it now since they won't send PPR due to border closure. It is expected they start outland PPRs by around September (when almost all Canadians are vaccinated) and add that few months till someone picks up your application (due to heavy backlog), so by then your medical validity will be only for a few more months and you might be requested new medical again. Therefore, I suggest you wait till they either request or extend.

In addition, no need to apply the Australian PCC as the assessment is only up until your application submission. If the officer requires, he will request. No need to add extra, unnecessary documents to further delay your application.

That's good news it says you received a decision on your application.

About the survey, I do not know if it is the same survey we were requested last year in which they wanted to collect applicants on how the pandemic impacted them and their goals with respect to the migration to Canada.

But the thing is, I didn't receive any decision LOL. And nothing in the portal has been updated since my medical and biometrics in Nov 2019.
