Hi sir, i am a cec applicant with outland minor dependent. My aor is oct 2019 and everything passed since march 2020 based from my calls to ircc.But our medicals already expired last oct 2020 but no request for re medical yet. The last update i got was last yr march 2020 wherein they asked to confirm my dependent’s address. Nothing after that. Now that my BOWP will expire on october 2021, am i able to apply a study permit for my son when I renew the bowp? Also do security and criminality checks expire after u passed it? Im just concerned that my application is taking too long to process and they might have to do all background checks again. Thanks a lot
If your medicals have expired, they may have already been extended. You can IRCC and find our or send a webform. Here is my post on medicals:

#13,193

If your BOPW is expiring you can seek an extension. The study permit for your son will be a separate application and will be processed on its own merits.

See #5,214

Security screening and criminality does have a shelf life, just that in the manual it has been redacted, so we are unclear what the duration is. Since security screening is a time consuming process, and takes a long time, once done, redoing it, logically won't make any sense unless the individual parameters of an application mandate it. This is my opinion.

Since the procedure for the security screening information is not disclosed, and what ever is disclosed is available at https://bit.ly/3apWglN which also has the security screening manual.

Just like medicals and criminality, security also has a shelf life. Since it is not disclosed, we cannot speculate how long it is. Also, security is based on multiple parameters and with COVID, lot of internal policy directives have be issued, such as extending medicals, and the same should be for security and criminality too.

You cannot add a baby until it is born. Legally, an unborn child is not considered a legal entity. If you want to travel before your child is born, you can do so and if your child is born in Canada, the child will be a citizen by birth. If you want to wait until after your baby is born, you can inform IRCC and an extension will be given. I your case since you have not yet received a decision, you can inform IRCC after the birth of your child.

Once your baby is born, you can submit the documents for you baby, the documents will be processed and once done, COPR will be issued to all individuals in the application.
Thank you so much for the response

First thing is stop comparing your application with others. Each application is different and there are many variables.

There are many applications that are just stuck, and there is nothing much you can do to expedite the process. You can send a webform as ask about the status or request GCMS notes and see if you have review required.
Hi Legalfalcon,
How to know if a review is required from the GCMS notes?
Thanks in advance

In the last few pages of your GCMS notes, you will have a note which will say "review required."

Sometimes it can be marked on the Assessment section on page 2 of the Gcms Notes, see these examples https://bit.ly/3cuzIks . Other than that you will see it in the Notes section of the file as well. These “Notes” are numbered and dated from the most recent to the oldest.

Hi @legalfalcon
I received AOR in October 2019 and I'm an Ontario nominee (FSW, PNP, outland). My application is approved however, I'm yet to receive PPR.
Could you please help me out here, my question is, if I get married before moving to Canada or getting PPR, how it is going to affect my nomination? Do I have to inform the Province after marriage? Also, what documents would IRCC ask in such scenarios?

Many thanks in advance.

It will have no effect on your nomination. You will have to inform IRCC, and submit your spouse's documents. IF you family composition changes post eligibility, your eligibility will not be done again and thus will have to effect on your CRS or nomination.

Thank you @legalfalcon . Good to know that adding spouse will have no effect on nomination.
If they don't touch eligibility again, will CIC ask for updated proof funds after adding spouse?

YEs, you will have to provide an updated PoF to take into account the new added family member. However, if your PoF already meets it, no need to provide a new updated PoF.

Is there any hope for FSW outland applicants this year?? It has been excruciating past few months with all the waiting and no news from IRCC about applications being in process!

I've lost my hope with my CEC inland application bud) I'm already thinking about withdrawing it and applying again, since few friends of mine who applied in August of 2020 already received their cards.

Hi guys, @caipsnotes @legalfalcon

Just realised my medicals have changed from 'Medical Passed June 2020' to 'We are reviewing the results of your medical exam' in my CIC profile. Mind you, this is a re-medical that I had completed in April 2020 and they confirmed they had received it in June 2020 hence the 'Medical Passed June 2020'. My question is, what are the chances of being ordered to take a 3rd Medical exam? Has anyone here been told to go for a 3rd Medical? This has been so frustrating and I hope that won't be the case. Look forward to your responses
