but let say CIC got 5000 application on Jan 05th why they wait until 16th to post the notice that they recevied 5000?

They should post note earlier that 16th
Because the applications had to be opened and verified for completeness. I also think CIC waited a bit to get some buffer applications in case many CC charges get rejected.

No time stamp needed because the mails are accurately received and processed as they were physically sorted in each received packages. It is luck-based depending on the physical order of your application in each courier's package. So your app can arrive in the same batch at the same time but if they reach to the cutoff point then that's it. Thats how I understand.
So it would have been smarter to have your application received late in the day.
Then your application would be at the top of the pile when CIC started sorting. ;D

HI anyone that have the package recevied on Jan.05th.

I have some good news for you. I just called the call centre. The girl helped me searched my package, but still the same thing , nothing has been keyed in yet.However she said , they still working on the applications. sounds like the Jan.05th applications are in the 5000.

She said if I don't hear from them in middle of Feb. 2015 then email the CIC office , she also provide the email address everything to me.

They should post note earlier that 16th
Because they have to physically open each application, and do a complete review to make sure it can actually be accepted into the 5000 cap. They can't announce they received 5000 apps until they get 5000 acceptable apps, NOT just the first 5000 apps to arrive. If there are forms or signatures or something missing, they can just reject the app from cap and return back to applicant. SO in effect it may have taken 6000 apps to get the 5000 acceptable ones.

So even if 5000 apps were received by Jan 5, it probably took a couple weeks to actually review all the application to find 5000 acceptable ones. Who know how many people they had working on this, and how many minutes it takes to review each application.

I just tried to call CIC but it was not transferred to a representative due to high volume...

I just would like to check whether CC charges are all completed or not....

Some Jan 5 applications are out of luck? Sure. But what bothered me was not all complete Jan 2 applications are processed yet. Nor do we hear about the returns. To say the "CC charge" is done is mind-boggling.
