hmmm, that is the first time I hear this. Then, what is the point of waiting for a medical request from IRCC if you can do it upfront and provide it to them? Why are many people on this forum then waiting for their medical requests. If doing an upfront medical examination was the answer, then we would not have heard about many of them on this forum waiting for a medical request from IRCC!!!
If you’ve read the old pages of this forum, you would see that many people also had upfront medical examination.

Me, myself, is also waiting for the MR and did not do it upfront.

When I first sent my application package to IRCC, applicants were generally getting medical requests in their 5th to 8th months.
Currently, even though within the average estimated processing time many applicants don’t get MR.

He asked the upfront examination possibilities and I gave him the correct information. It is totally your choice to do it upfront or wait the request.

You dont need to do that its a law in Quebec about wife's name that she can use her husband name starting from her birthday, probably Canadain girls married few times in life so whenever they marry they do not change their names again and again so she can use present husband name starting from her birth.
Its confusing. Dont worry. Just submit the application. You can search more on it in this forum people have talked about it
Thank you for your reply.
Could you please share the URL link of the topic you mentioned? (people send their CSQ as it is without correcting to federal stage)

This mail means your application has entered the processing queue. It won't be returned. At best they may ask some additional documents. Your csq remains valid irrespective of the validity period written on it.
Thank you so much, fingers crossed!
Good Luck to you for your process.

Finally an update on my PR! I applied as under Regular Quebec Skilled Worker on 1 October 2018. AOR received January 2019 and medical September 2020. Anyone know what are the next steps after completing the medical requests?
Are you inland or outland please?

Hello, I'm in the same boat. Although the system says "security has not started", I think its already being processed by an external agency as soon as medical is passed. Maybe some other members with this experience can comment on this!
Not exactly, I passed medical in Jan 2019 and they started SC in August 2019. If they started it in a reasonable time after the MR (which was also sent very late), I would have some results by now. But they are simply unresposably late.

Hello everyone,
I got my CSQ last week but while waiting for my CSQ my PGWP is expired. I am trying to restore my status as worker under employer specific LMIA exempt but i have some doubts regarding “proof that you meet requirements of the job being offered” and “invitation letter”.
please Someone suggest me what do i need for that.
Thank you
Your employer needs to registrate and pay the fees. It's quite simple procedure. You need a copy of the payment, CSQ, AOR letter, I already forgot the hole process but it wasn't complicate.

Yes I confirm this is the case too. However I know some Outland applicants are able to do it upfront depending on the regional clinics
yeah, we could do medical upfront depends on clinics for outland applicants, but I think it could waste of money due to one year expiration of medical results and we must do it again. Normally so far, from sending the application to DM is about 24 months, So I think we should wait until official letter of medical check.

There are outland and inland applicants with upfront medicals (on their own risk). Some people think that when IRCC opens their file and see the MR done they will speed up the process for them, may be it can be a factor in certain cases, way not. Some agents are probably more understanding than other, who knows. But in the current situation I honestly don't think that someone will open your file within a year.

Well noted. As you suggested I have already prepared everything, my employer paid the fees through employer portal. I have that offer of employment number but when i was applying online and in document checklist they asked for “invitation letter” i don’t understand that requirement. From where i should get that document as i am already in Canada.
Except this “invitation letter” everything is in order. Please advice on above. Any lead would be highly appreciated. Thank you

I applied at the border. I had a job description and a letter from HR but nobody even asked me.
If you can get some kind of letter from your employer that may work, just to submit something. If they don't like it, they will contact you later for adjustment. Or you can try and call them before submitting the documents!?

I submitted again the offer letter. This was my lawyer's advice and it worked. I got positive answer in 4-5 days and after 3-4 days I received the actual work permit by mail.

Here are my friends I mentioned - late 2018 applicants from this forum - who got their DMs in less than 12 months.

By the grace of God I have received DECISION MADE on my ECAS Today. My timeline are as under:

APPLIED IN Mar 14
CSQ RECD NOV 18
FEDERAL APPLIED DEC 18
AOR MAR 19
MEDICAL REQUEST OCT 19
DECISION MADE OCT 19

I would like to thank everyone who helped me throughout this 6 yrs journey.

Wish all the best for everyone..

Dec 2018 to Oct 2019 - Less than 11 months. Is not it miraculous ?
Just to compare with myself I also applied for CSQ in the year of 2014 and finally got my CSQ in Nov 2018, exactly like him.


It will be lowered eventually for sure once QWSP backlogs gets cleared. I am one such example of getting DM in 12th month. :)
thanks, Outland from India.
Finally received PPR few mins back.

You can double check their dates via tracker. I have been messaging with these lucky people via this forum and WhatsApp.
So there is a possibility to get your DM less than a year even in Quebec Skilled Workers category.

I suppose it is...if it is 2 years then it is not normal but with QSWP it is becoming normal as many applicants who sent documents back in July 2019 did not hear back from CIC yet.
