Don't expect much that Canada will soon process FSW-O applications. There are still many pending CEC inland applicants. I saw that they are still doing the June 2020 CEC inland applications. That's a year worth of backlog. They also have to take care of those existing residents and citizens who lose their jobs during the pandemic. Additional immigrants would entail competition of looking for jobs with them. So I don't think they will allow outland immigrants to come to Canada anytime soon. At the earliest, we can assume that they will continue processing FSW-O applications by the summer next year.

Let's not wait in vain. Expect less and move on. It really is unfair and I have been waiting for over a year now. I suggest we already move on with our lives and pray that the world will return as it was before March 2020.

Summer 2023 seems like a safer bet to me.

Whats the hurry to process CEC applicants? They are already in Canada.

On the other hand, FSW applicants (most of them) are outlanders, so in order for them to come to Canada, they have to pass all the stages. Plus, I believe that IRCC has different departments handling CEC and FSW respectively.

The responsibility of IRCC is only the immigration and following the directions of the federal government. Please do not confuse the roles.

An update from me: contacted IRCC this week, and my security check still hasn't started processing yet. Everything else is "passed", so the security check is the last phase before a final decision. The rep said again that it's processed by external agencies, and that they're not referring the checks to them for FSW-O applicants at this stage, due to COVID delays. No idea when they'll resume. Nothing to do but wait.

Me three, I think most FSW-O are. If I remember correctly someone said it would resume processing by August. Fingers crossed, we all can arrive in Canada before the year ends.

Me four lol. I hope they start processing applications soon. I don't understand why they are holding processing. They could complete processing applications and send COPRs when the travel restrictions are lifted.
