Hello everyone!

I have received an updated after contacting CPC-CTD-Ottawa@cic.gc.ca that says the following:

"Please note that your application is being processed at the Case Processing Centre in Ottawa as per our regulatory timeline. Please note that we cannot confirm when your file will be ready for finalization."

My application was previously in Sydney Central Intake Office.

For your information, I needed a PCC request letter and submitted the PCC. Since then, I have been having the "IP1" status (25 days now with no update to the background status). I am Federal Worker Outland.

The application also says the following: The additional documents you have provided is being reviewed.

Background: Your application is in progress. We will send you a message when we start your background check.

PLEASE INFORM ME WHAT IS HAPPENING? Is this email an indication of any progress or is it nothing?

Thanks you !

Seems straightforward. Your file is at Ottawa for processing. When was your AOR? Did you have to submit your FBI PCC?

My AOR was at 31st of December. I submitted the PCC 25 days ago but still at IP1.

So the fact that it was in Sydney CIO and now is in Ottawa CPC has no significance to the application progress?

Thanks for your time !

Your file has progressed from Sydney to Ottawa so it is progress. Ottawa will now do an eligibility check. Its been less than 2 months since you submitted so you are well within the estimated time frame.

You can just email CPC Ottawa at
CPC-CTD-Ottawa@cic.gc.ca and mention Application Processing Center in your email subject. But don’t expect to get an answer any sooner since they are generally busy processing CSEs and this takes a lower priority...But then who knows....HTH!
