I'm also from Calgary. I guess that's the reason why most June Albertan applicants haven't got their sponsor stage approved. Btw, what's SSC letter?
ssc letter is social service check letter that IRCC require from the SA residing province government.

Yours is also stuck "In Process" on SA approval ?

How did you reach out to them to let them know your parents are in Canada?
They asked to reply to the email request they sent me. They indicated that the background check is now complete and they are pleased to finalize the application but they need a proof of her being in Canada. So I just replied to the email I received

What is so special about London VO and why it remains closed?
LVO was backed up even before the lock down, and now with all these delays to re-open, it will get even worse.
Nonetheless, they still accept visitor visa application, even though person won`t be able to travel, cause of travel ban in place.
:cool:

Please update the tracker. My mom's file was updated yesterday to the application approved. Etobicoke Landings emailed me yesterday with a request for a proof that my mom is currently in Canada. I sent them the proof and later they updated the file with the number of her confirmation for permanent residency. No email with COPR yet.
I am assuming next week as it is a weekend now.
@Lady19 you should be getting updates soon I hope)
Timeline May 31 applicant.
Wondering what the process should look like from now.
We are in Alberta so I would like to know how and when can I apply for her SIN number and AB health care card?
Anyone with experience here?
I also would like to thank everyone for the multiple advices and support throughout this nerve racking process.
Wish everyone best of luck!

What proof did you provide for your mom's residency in Canada ?? or just the email reply from you did the work. ??

Good morning everyone,

Please update my parent's application to Approved today July 6, 2020. I received an email last July 3,2020 to confirm if my parent is currently reside in Canada and I response as soon as I read it.
Today I received a call looking for my mom (principal applicant) to confirm if she's in Canada, after the conversation I checked the status both online tools and GCkey and both changed to Approved.

Thanks God and this forum who assist us during the process.

Hey guys, what's the fastest way to get proof of residence in Ontario?

I'm trying to get OHIP health card for my parents and OHIP is asking for proof of residence. We can open a bank account but probably have to wait for a week or 2 for bank letters to arrive.

Anyone knows any faster alternative?

Thanks!

June, 2019 applicant here - beside AOR in December no other communications - anyone on the same boat? thanks
I dont think they will touch new applications, unfortunately. Like my citizenship application received Dec 09,2019 and still application received. 7 months already while timeline is 1 year.

My parents got approved for permanent residence back in March, 2020 and since they have been stuck in India and unable to travel.

Even though I want my parents to travel before their visa expires (in August), I am very concerned about their health as they are old and number of cases of COVID are increasing rapidly.

I wanted to ask experts here -- I am looking to get some knowledge about travel insurance options (before OHIP kicks in - should be 3 to 4 months). Do you know if these insurance companies cover emergency/medical related expenses due to COVID?
My parents are in same boat from Punjab, India and their visa is expiring in September.Did your parents landed ?

Hello
I would like to bring my parent to canada via TRV while they are waiting for PGP 2019 process to complete
I applied for TRV in Feb 2020. They completed medical for TRV as well. They have provided biometric also.
The TRV application has not moved at all due to current situation. Now that TRV processing has started I have few questions

Questions
1) Do i need to get the authorization letter for exemption to travel to canada for immediate family OR no letter is needed since I am citizen/PR?
2) since the case is pending since Feb 2020, who should i reach out to for TRV? Islamabad consulate OR london visa office?
3) what would be better webform or email?
4) what would be the content of the email or letter?

Please guide.

Thanks

1. No special authorization. Just proof that they are your parents.
2. No really point of reaching out. The delays are due to covid.
