Hi friends.
Given the fact that the information about security is redacted in GCMS notes, does ordering a CBSA note reveal the redacted information?

These are from the CBSA Security Screening Manual about disclosure guidelines, information is redacted as is in the case of the Manual itself.

No. It will not. However, most CBSA notes will show the status on page 2, and will also show the notes parting to when the security started and if it has been concluded along with the date.

Based on your GCMS notes, your eligibility is yet to be determined by an officer. You can read my previous post to see how the GCMS notes should look like when your eligibility is passed by an officer. You only have a case analyst notes.

The post is available at #3,199

As regards review required, my old post, which I am reporting here:



Also on page 2, your security is redacted. So most likely your security has started. If your Job duties substantially match the job duties of the NOC selected, then you need not worry.
Thanks for your response. It's very helpful

...A lot of the applications see COVID pace in the GCMS notes. It is yet to be seen what exactly it means, but does indicate that IRCC issuing slower, or not issuing PPRs unless the respective visa offices in your country reopen or the travel restrictions are removed...
Thanks for the insight. What exactly are we monitoring here - commercial/recreational travel? Bubble agreements like the recent one? Official tweets?
I'm approved but as you said no PPR. I just want to learn how to analyse and see the trend in the events with Covid and Immigration. Thank you.

There are no trends. IRCC apart from Canada's public health experts, will have to rely on country specific instructions. Also, facts such as whether visa free travel is allowed, does you country of residence has exit controls, whether Canada can reach an agreement for e-Visa with your country of residence etc. will be factors.

Honestly, if your application has been approved, and you are willing to travel, send a CSE to IRCC informing them that you are willing to travel and a tentative itinerary. A lot of applicants have been receiving emails from IRCC asking their willing ness to travel and itinerary.

Hi friends.

No, the information regarding security is is never disclosed.

The CBSA notes only inform you the date when the security was initiated and if it has been concluded, then the case when the report of sent to IRCC.

The same goes with CSIS notes.

To read the details on how the security is done, see https://bit.ly/2DxSQ42

The manual that CBSA has disclosed in public domain pertains to 2016 and is highly redacted. There is a new manual in place now, but is exempt from disclosure. This is as per the most recent information available.

Hi @legalfalcon ..I received my GCMS notes. Security is blank and s15 on top right corner. Eligibility and Criminality PASSED.

How do we know if security is completed? I read a few posts on this forum that random applications are picked for security screening which takes months to an year to finish. How to know if my application is not a part of that process from GCMS?

Case Analyst: ***REVIEW REQUIRED***


RECOMMENDATION:
Review Required SUMMARY NOTES: OFFICER PLEASE REVIEW NOC. IT APPEARS THAT THE NOC IS NOT VALID. A11.2: Review Required R76: SELECTION CRITERIA- FSW POINTS/ Funds: Review Required FSW points total: 59 Outstanding Documents (Not Requested):- PA Meds - Re-evaluation Ready to Finalize RPRF: Complete

What can I make from this? The case analyst says NOC is not valid. Im pretty confident this is the right NOC and given that Eligibility was passed, does this mean they finally realized their mistake. Does this confirm waiting for PPR?
You didn't share note 1 to 3...

Those might contain Officer comments.

Security is always redacted. On page 2, you will see that the security is blank and on the top right corner you will see s15(1).S 15 is the relevant section under which the security is redacted. To read on s15 see https://bit.ly/2E0mhLN

If it has been more than 2 months that your eligibility was passed by an officer, and your security has not yet concluded, then you may be in enhanced SS.

To see if your eligibility is passed, see my previous post on how your GCMS note should look like available at #3,199

To read the details on how the security is done, the procedure, etc. see https://bit.ly/2DxSQ42

Thank you for the response @legalfalcon
I received below web form reply this morning. So i'd assume my security checks are done and I'm not a part of enhances SS. Please let me know if you feel otherwise.
  • The background verifications are currently valid.
  • The security background verification is currently valid.
  • The criminal background verification is currently valid.

Hi guys,
I need your help. Our Canadian Citizenship application was submitted in September 2019 and received email that our application was in process in December. Since then, me and my wife have not received any email about exam etc. We are just worried, I don’t know if there’s anybody out there who are also experiencing this. Do we need to follow up our application or wait? This is what it shows online when we check our application status:

Citizenship
  1. We received your application for Canadian citizenship (grant of citizenship) on September 17, 2019.
  2. We sent you correspondence acknowledging receipt of your application(s), and a study book called Discover Canada on December 5, 2019.
  3. We started processing your application on January 10, 2020.
