Sharing with you. I hope it helps:
Passing the medicals is definitely an important event, which takes you an inch closer towards your Canadian dream. However, it does not guarantee you a successful climax.
Generally, your application will follow the below path after the submission.
BG: Not Applicable (NA1)
Medical passed - (MEP)
BG: In Progress (IP1) - R10 check is done here.
BG: Not Applicable (NA2) - Eligibility check is done here.
BG: In Progress (IP2) -
BG: Not Applicable (NA3) - Sometimes this does not come
PPR: Passport Request
CoPR: Confirmation of Permanent Residence
So it is in below order:
AOR: This is a letter you will get within 24 hours after submission of your PR application.
NA1: "Not applicable". This will be your BG status message as soon as you submit and get AOR. Typically, this will be status until the time you get your medical passed status.
MEP: "You passed the medical exam". This will usually happen after approx 25-30 days after your AOR. For PNP applicants it can take more time generally.
IP1: This will happen one or two days after your medical. Sometimes on the same day itself. BG status message in this stage will be "Your application is in progress. We will send you a message when we start your background check. " CIC agents will do R10, criminality checks during this stage. Once they feel good, they will change it. These things will happen at CIO Office (Centralized Intake Office).
NA2: "Not applicable". This will signify that IP1 is completed. Sometimes IP1 will take few hours and if we have not checked our account during the time it was in IP1, it will not be possible to know that we are in NA1 or NA2. Our file will be transferred to CPC (Case Processing Center) where agents will do eligibility assessments. If they feel everything is okay, then they will provide their recommendation to Visa Officer and they will initiate Security Checks.
IP2: BG status message in this stage will be "We are processing your background check. we will send you a message if we need more information. " Visa Officer starts reviewing or reviewing all agents recommendations. On the same day, PPR request will be triggered if the applicant paid RPRF up front. These things will be done at CPC office.
NA3: "Not applicable". This will signify that IP2 is completed. This status is not visible in many cases, and PPR request is placed from IP2.
PPR: Passport Request. You will get an email for that and you may not get an update in your CIC account for this.
ADR: Sometimes an additional document is requested in IP1 or IP2 stage.
An email, as well as a message in your CIC account, will be sent.
