what question is that?
Question 20 - indicating employment/education since PR.
I am concerned because my application was delivered March 3rd and I’ve yet to receive AOR. It’s April 20th. I posted asking if anyone else has had such a long wait time or if I should call IRCC, the application may have been incomplete or picture not acceptable.

Based on my timeline as well as fellow member that have this issue. Likely scenario

Delivered - March 3rd
Opened mail / Processed - April 3rd

So, I would keep an on your mail in the next week or two. If you dont received anything by May 3rd, definitely contact CIC.

Good luck!

Thank you, this is reassuring. I try to look it up in the online check application tool but don’t have it linked to my account yet. It won’t show anything in the online tool (We weren’t able to find it, etc), were you only able to see yours once you linked it?
Don't use the online application check tool. Instead, log into your account. Under "view application submitted" there is a link " Add your application to your account" that you can click. Just follow the steps in the subsequent pages. If your application was received a while ago, you should be able to locate it and link it to the account.

Got my application back in the mail today. Photos were received damaged there was a slight ink smudge on one of them. Guess I’ll retake, re-sign (just in case), and repost it. It’s nice that the processing time has gone down from when I sent it two months ago but a bummer that I wasted two months waiting. I am currently expecting so I want my card back before baby comes!

Renewal application in limbo..

Application delivered: March 8

Still no AOR or return mail. No online application status, and unable to link to online account. Tried calling but after going through the menu, just got a message that the call centre is too busy. I submitted a web form enquiry, but it does say they do not respond to enquiries to applications within the stated processing time.

Edit: Just checked my mail and it looks like same as Americanwife94 above. However I am not sure what is wrong with my photos. They are 1mm short of 70mm but I can't imagine they dinged me for that..

Sorry to hear Limbo. I got mine back at the beginning of this week. Seems they are being very picky with photos. I just sent everything back this afternoon (Friday). Back to the waiting game, hopefully this time we both get AOR quickly and our cards soon!

We applied for PR renewal on April 27th, urgent processing and I checked the status of our application today, it says decision made...
Other then the acknowledge of receipt received by email we didn't get any other informations.
Does "decision made" means that our applications have been approved? This was extremely fast...

Question about travel history!

I’ve only been outside Canada for 17 days in the last 5 years. The last time I entered Canada we crossed the border (by land) fairly close to midnight. It was a very long day of driving and I remember we crossed between 10:30-midnight. (This was in 2018) I put the day I entered back into Canada in my travel history but now I’m second guessing myself that we entered just after midnight, therefore making it the next day. I’m afraid this will mess up my application. It doesn’t affect my RO because I counted both the day I left and the day I arrived as days outside Canada, but I’m afraid they’ll ding me for the discrepancy when they check with CBSA. If I crossed just after midnight it would have been just that-between 12-12:30 am. There’s no way for me to double check this without requesting my travel history from the border (which takes 30 days and delays my app).

Any opinions on whether this is something to worry about or not ? Like I said, I have been outside Canada for less than 3 weeks in the last 5 years, there is absolutely no doubt that I meet the RO. (My 5 year period is from June 13 2017-April 29 2022 as I became PR less than 5 years ago)

I would assume a DM that quickly is a positive decision! Hopefully you get your card just as quickly.
