I was speaking to our local MP about my VISA application today, and she said she cannot look into my file or see any details while I am waiting for my GCMS notes because each time you apply they 'pull your file'. Does anyone know what that means? Everything I have read states that the application is processed as usual while they create GCMS.

Your GCMS notes are a snapshot of your file as it was at a point during your application process. Your GCMS notes will be pulled from your file shortly after you request them, it's the process of removing any information that cannot be shared that is reason why it takes so long to receive them. That means that if you request them today, by the time you receive them, they are probably already out of date.

Thank you, that makes sense. I requested mine on 6.1.21 and still haven't received anything so I am just going to forget about it now

The criteria states:

  • have at least 1 year of skilled work experience in Canada,in the last 3 years before you apply—you can meet this in a few different ways:
    • full-time at 1 job: 30 hours/week for 12 months = 1 year full-time (1,560 hours)
    • equal amount in part-time work: for example 15 hours/week for 24 months = 1 year full time (1,560 hours)
      • You can work as many part-time jobs as you need to meet this requirement.
    • full-time work at more than 1 job: 30 hours/week for 12 months at more than 1 job = 1 year full time (1,560 hours)
  • have gained your work experience by working in Canada while under temporary resident status with authorization to work
It does not mandate any a physical presence per se, but it is evident from the criteria that you have to be in Canada on a TRV. Work related travel is permitted as long a you were in employment, paid in Canada and on the payroll of the Canadian employer.
Thanks @legalfalcon for the clarification. Really appreciate your timely inputs for prospective immigrants like us

Hey guys. I just got an update that my eligibility has been passed. There were no changes to my online account. No ghost updates. Got the update when I called IRCC.
Thank you for sharing!
