Just called IRCC, I applied for a job and the employer would like to know when I can expect my PR.

FSW-O (applying from the Netherlands)
AOR: June 28
MEP: July 31
BIL: August 14

Visa Office: Ottawa
Eligibility: not started
Criminality: passed
Security: not started
Estimated remaining processing time: {according to my online application page): 59 days

I started calling 04:58 (Pacific Time, which is 04:58 Eastern Daylight Time) and by the time I got through the menu (in my case pressing
1 – 1 – 2 – 2 – application number# - 1 – birth year – 1 – 1 – 0 ) it was exactly 08:00 in Ottawa and it took maybe 20 seconds before I got an agent on the phone.

I asked for a status update to see where I am in the process. A very friendly lady immediately started looking into it after verification questions. Unfortunately, nothing has been initiated since I called mid-September, so 6 weeks ago. The office is still Ottawa, eligibility and security not started.

She said that the estimated completion date is more likely to be early January because December is a busy month (uh no, Canadians themselves always tell me that nobody works really hard this month and they'll be preparing for and enjoying the holidays, especially in the government ;)). I asked her if even early January is realistic, given the fact that they haven't even started eligibility review and security yet. She said that if all my documents are okay, there should be no problem to complete this within the remaining time until January. She also said that 80% of the applications are processed in 6 months but for 20% it takes longer (standard reply I think from any agent).

Anyway, nothing to be excited about, unfortunately. My file is still somewhere in the pile o_O
I applied 1 day after you did, my AOR is 29 June and the same updates , only criminality is passed.
I have a question, I've heard they no longer give updates through the phone , is it true ?

Well, in my case they did. First time I called mid-September the agent just said: you know we have 6 months to make a decision so just wait. But just persist and ask specific questions: is eligibility met or passed? Has security been started yet?

In both cases they looked into my file and gave me answers!

Did you order GCMS notes? I’m still waiting, also November 2018 AOR. Ordering notes was my last action...Maybe it can trigger something (that’s my hope) because an agent need to review information to finish notes. Ordered a month ago but I did not receive it yet.

Hi! My AOR is November 18, 2018. My original medicals expired on October 16, 2019. But I got a remedical request before the expiry date and it was passed on August 29, 2019. Neverthless, still waiting RFV e-mail....Called IRCC, raised webform and they just say that eligibility is passed, background check is in process (criminality, security is passed), just wait. They do not know when it will be finished :(
