hello friends, I just checked my email and I received AOR yest i.e. Sunday Sept 23. I checked my Ecas and it says Decision Made. When I click Decision Made this is what I see:
Permanent Resident Card
  1. We received your application for a permanent resident card on June 13, 2018.
  2. We sent you correspondence acknowledging receipt of your application(s) on September 23, 2018.
  3. We started processing your application on September 23, 2018.
That is great news. Hopefully by October, you will receive your PR card.

When you received the returned application by mail, you must have seen a letter enclosed in it explaining why your application was returned. Make sure you include this letter when you resend your application.
Make sure you update the application form with all the updated details including your employment history, address details and also change the date of submission to the date when you will mail the application.
Take the PR photo specification document to the photographer & inform them to take the photos as per the document specification.

The current PR card processing times is around 86 days. You can include a letter explaining that you have booked a flight by November 13 & the reason for the flights. Additionally, attach the corresponding flight ticket copies. There is still no guarantee that your PR card will be processed urgently. But it is worth a try. Good luck !!!
Yes , i am doing exactly as you mentioned.
Hi Hargobinder, sorry about the returned application. But see if you can sent it as urgent and just make sure all your info in the forms are updated.
Yeh now i will send as urgent. my application got rejected because of some stupid photographer's mistake.

Just checked ecas. Looks like they just opened my file (June 27th). This is a relief since my citizenship application is in limbo.

Hang on, processing time is from the date they send notification that they got to the application?
not from the date they received from the mail service?
The processing time is from the date they received the application, not when they send the notification. Mine changed to DM on September 17th.

Hi robw, I'm June 25 applicant here.
Can you specify what you mean by "looks like they just opened my file"?
Did the ecan changed to "application received" or "in process"?

Mine is just at "app received", fyi.

Tough to say due to possible Canada Post strike.

Hoping that doesn't throw a wrench in the application process. Keeping fingers crossed.

Hi everyone
I'm in deep concern here as I send my application on the 7th of June and still not get anything from them except that they have already recevied it.
I informed the call center and they send a message to Sydney on 14 June but no update yet on my account.
So worry that something is wrong .it's not a renewal application but a replacement as I didn' t receive my first card in the first time ( didn't stay enough time to get it) but also I didn't breach the RO.Is there something that I can do ?
