My MP was in contact with IRCC about my applications. To contextualise, I'm in Canada as a visitor since December 2020, I have an approved IEC work permit that I cannot activate in Canada due to non-essential travel restrictions that prevent me from flagpoling, as well as a PR application (FSW) in progress since October 2020.

MP/IRCC response: Holding temporary status in Canada is not considered an urgent situation. Work and PR applications submitted by applicants inside Canada are not considered for expedited or urgent processing simply because of the applicants temporary status in Canada expiring. However, IRCC officials recently indicated that because of the current Canadian Border closures they are now focusing processing of applications submitted by applicants currently in Canada. Hopefully this will mean that Charlotte will be contacted sooner regarding the finalization of one or both of her applications. There is no typical timeline that can be provided as this is a not typical process.

Not sure what she means by this.

Hey Guys,

I have a quick question, I am working on my application for EE Application. Currently, I am in Canada and I do not want to claim points for my bachelors.

If I don't need WES, do CIC can ask WES after my application (during background check), I saw some postings in different thread about Dr Ambedkar Uni (agra) and IRCC usually asks for second verification. I have no one in India who can help me to get transcript sent out from uni.

Please advise.

Not seen a single GU while the background has been "we are processing......." since day one.

Hi all. I’ve contacted IRCC through web form and this is their response.
  • Your application is currently being processed at the Case Processing Centre in Ottawa, Ontario.
  • Your application meets the eligibility requirements under the immigration program for which you have applied.
  • The security background verification has not been initiated.
  • The criminal background verification has not been initiated.
Can someone please explain to me?

Hi guys
Just a quick question
Me and my partner just bought a property in Australia as we are not sure how long it’s going to take to actually migrate to Canada since the borders are closed.
when I applied for express entry , I did not have any debts(home loan), I was renting at that time.
I ordered my GCMS notes last month and it said final decision is approved but have not received any COPR or any status change in the GC key yet, it still says in progress
How should I go forward with this?
I am pretty sure that I need to update the address, just wondering do I need to disclose the debt, if yes then how? Is anyonelse been in the same situation? Also, will it have any negative impact on the file ? @legalfalcon please advise

The "Current status" in my CIC account changed from Submitted to Application/Profile Updated but I don't see anything change. I didn't receive any ghost email neither.
