Hi, I applied for PR renewal on March 2018 and according to Canada Post tracking, was received on March 26. I also applied on March for citizenship and I got the receipt on April 14, via e-mail /CIC web account, both the same day, which made me aware of what should I expect regarding PR application.

I check my web account daily so, yesterday, June 22, 3 month later, they added up the status for my PR "Aplication received"(exactly on March 26, as the tracker said) but no receipt yet. Under the underlined process description this status doesn't exist. It's just "In process", "Decision made" and "Complete". I understand that they need informations from Canada border, but according to the last PR processing time, is it gonna take 114 days from now on? They are only working on applications received on February 15, 2018.
I called CIC before sending my application and asked about the timelines, from what I understand is 114 days from the day they received your application, in your case from March 26.

I would call CIC just to clarify, if that is the case, they should be mailing your card soon

I've two questions
#1 - I've more travel than the sheet can cover. I was planning to attach an excel sheet with the exact same format and then writing " Sheet Attached" to in the column on the form. Any better advise?
#2 - Should I mention the 1-month gap between employment as well?

Good to know that your online status shows that your application is received. I also did not receive the AOR through email as of date. Please keep me updated.

That's what happened in my case too... so, now I'm worried. Not getting the receipt, is my file ok? Or maybe I have to expect it back for whatever reason...

Me too! My status shows “application received” on March 19th. No AOR yet. It has been over 2 weeks now since it showed on ECAS.

Mine was received on March 16. I finally got the AOR on June 26th. The day after, my online status changed from received to decision made. But when I click on it it says they started processing only on June 27th. This worries me since it seems to take weeks after they start processing or even after you get the DM that they send the card. This would take me way beyond processing times. And mine is a very uncomplicated case. Almost no travel. Will the processing times increase again next week right before I get my card?

So maybe decision made means they have approved your request for renewal and yes i suppose it will take about 4 weeks to issue the card. I guess I should receive the AOR soon then.

I hope it won't take 4 weeks. That would take my processing times to more than 130 days.
