Is your file automatically transferred to a local office if the applicant is out of status? App was received Dec 12 2019 and transferred to Etobicoke December 3, 2020. My common law partner was out of status when we applied.

No, it's not automatic. IRCC transfers applications to the Etobicoke office when there are issues with the application. Typically this is around whether the relationship is genuine.

There's really no way to push or rush IRCC.

It's a very good idea to order your GCMS notes to see the details of why your application was transferred to Etobicoke.

You've posted to the wrong section of the forum. This section is for family sponsorship and processing times discussed here will not apply to you.

This system has been implemented for all the people whose application has been approved from Mississauga and can not go to Etobicoke for final pR confirmation.

In our cases where file has been transferred, we need IRCC Etobicoke officer to open our files to give us AIP & DM. I really wish they do something for everyone whose file is transferred and waiting to get some updates:(((

I received a file transfer letter for further assessment email yesterday... before covid this would mean interview in person (from what I watched on forums and fb groups)
Now, I have searched and people say they are stuck at that office... some even going on 18 months with no news.... anyone recently get an email that their file was transferred to that office and can provide some guidance.... hoping to help someone else who has read these depressing posts of wait times up to 18 months....

My time line in is my signature... cheers
