while ordering gcms notes is your choice, I could tell you that RPRF fee is requested once eligibility is passed so you could estimate your eligibility to have passed around that time.
Given the current circumstances and with everyone with a similar timeline ordering gcms notes, you can estimate where your application might stand at this point. Specially since most FSW-O applications are pending anyway.
However, there are some details provided in the notes that you may want to know about. Personally, although I have ordered notes twice, at this point I don't see the need because of the situation. Had things been moving and PPRs being rolled out, I would order one. Seeing my application and so many others' stuck since Feb/March is sort of frustrating too. It's just a personal opinion at this point. I too had ordered notes so you cango ahead if you feel curious. :)
thanks ! I sent the consent form for the notes today and hopefully from today there will be movement in Canada offices as well. So may be I get a latest updated in the notes by the time they are issued and sent.

Hello!
Do you believe sending proof of vaccination through the webform may somehow speed up the process?
Thanks

Hello Everyone,

I had summitted a webform inquiry as my application had passed 8 month limit and the following was the response received.
This doesn't look like a standard webform response. Does this mean that my eligibility has passed? ( I know it is difficult to tell without the GCMS notes, but wanted to check if any others have gotten this kind of similar response)

I received the exact same response just a few minutes ago. It's a generic response.

https://www.canada.ca/en/transport-canada/news/2021/08/transport-canada-extending-restrictions-on-direct-flights-from-india-until-september-21-2021.html

The flight ban from India has been extended for one more month. It's not even close to 21st August and they have already extended it.

US now has more cases per day than India. Someone really hates India in the Canadian Government.
This has really stressed me out. I was counting hours and days to Aug 21 thinking something positive for Indian outlanders is gonna be announced soon. Now this.

Does this mean our applications won't be processed in 2021? I have literally quit doing everything, Job, Freelancing and everything hoping that the bans will be lifted and I may get my application approved in Sept 21.

This is Painful.

Just my thought but the ban may have been extended so that Canada can assess opening on September 7th for all purposes and then allow direct flights from India.

Hi everyone
I am CEC inland
Very straightforward case, single , no divorces no dependents

AOR Oct 13th 2020, passed eligibility April 2021. Médical check is passed with no need to interview nor biometrics

I asked for the help of The MP office to check on my application, they called me July 16th mentioning that IRCC updated them that my application is at final stage. Since then , silence

I called IRCC and an agent told me that my application is in queue for final review

then after a while when I called again, another agent told me security is not started yet.


my questions are as follows:
- what does a final stage mean?
- when security states “not started”, does it really change to “in process “ once started? Because it’s been 3 months since I passed eligibility and security “being not started” yet does not make any sense ?
I am awaiting for my GCMS notes requested 1 month ago.

I don't mean to scare you, but the Canadian government has been known to cancel pending applications before.

They have done this back in 2008, and 2012

https://www.cicnews.com/2012/07/case-federal-skilled-worker-backlog-reduction-071663.html

Quebec recently cancelled all pending applications back in 2018

https://www.cicnews.com/2019/06/quebec-passes-legislation-cancelling-thousands-of-pending-skilled-worker-applications-0612413.html

When the pending application backlog exceeds their capacity to process them, they go "f**k it, let's start all over again."


I am the same as you. I have everything riding on this application now, but it would be a good idea to start seeking a job again because the Canadian government does not care for us. They won't think twice about the people they have kept in limbo for the last two years. The only people who can relax are people who have "Approved" as the final decision on their application. The rest of us need to keep living our lives like we never applied.

It's not a good idea to stop everything else in your life and wait for them to come to a decision.
