Hi everyone,

Any March 2017 Applicants?
My time line:
CIC started processing my application - Mar 28, 2017
Schedule A and Police Check requested - Apr 04, 2017
Medical request - Jul 19, 2017
Criminal record check based on fingerprint request - Feb 28, 2018
The last update: We sent you correspondence on February 28, 2018. If you have not yet provided the information or the requested documents, please do so as soon as possible. Please wait until you receive the correspondence before sending us additional information, as the correspondence will outline all information that is required.

Can anyone please share their cases? :(
Thanks!!!
Sooo long. I'm sorry to hear that.
Do you think there's any redflag on your application?
Maybe you should talk to your PM and ask them to try to find out what's going on.
And order your notes. If you haven't done it yet.

Did you check on your medical request form?
When I got the request I just got an email saying I had a new message and mycic was updated and the form(medical instructions + IMM1017) was there but nobody signs it.
I'm just curious here.
Thanks.
mine was similar except that apart from the CIC account update email I also got an Email from IRCC Vancouver. it was the same as the medical instructions except that it came straight from the office.

I was just curious. I have applied and am yet to get my PR approved. but cause of a full-time job and everything, I already have OHIP. Excuse my lack of knowledge in this matter, but do I have to reapply for OHIP once my PR is approved? is that a thing? or people who are talking about OHIP/medical card never had it in the first place? anyone?

Reapply... not sure. But you will definitely need to update your status once you're a PR. Now you should have a temporary card that expires with your work permit.

What is OHIP?
Ontario Health Insurance Plan

You're in Quebec province if I'm not wrong. For you it would be RAMQ. You can already apply with your DM letter.

Oh I see, just different name. Thanks for your information, I know that I can apply a health insurance card with my DM letter. I actually went to RAMQ when I had CSQ and they told me that I can go back when I have DM letter. So I will go there tomorrow or next Monday :) Can't wait to have it. I didn't dare to be ill during winter because of that haha

Oh la la, I just saw your signature! How could your case that fast?!!!

That was quite slow actually! We applied August 12th, 2015! And my wife got PR in May 26th, 2017! So almost 22 months.

But yah, from now news at all, then SA, AIP separated be a minute or so. Then the next morning, DM.

We also went with the CSQ when we got it... then, after I learned we need AIP or DM to apply.

No. IRCC will clearly tell you when they give you the CoPR that this is not a travel document. Also, the minute you get your PR, all visa, study permit, work permit, etc. they all become void so they cannot be used anymore. There are still ways to travel, one can apply for a permanent resident travel document: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/application-forms-guides/application-permanent-resident-travel-document.html

@Oldmacwright in most provinces, you can apply for health insurance using the AIP letter and/or the DM letter.
It is true that COPR is not a travel document. Using a previous visa is just to get onboard the plane, because it still looks valid for airline.

Then when you arrive at any canadian border, not matter if you have PR card or not, even if you have nothing but your passport, you have rights to enter canada.

For your references:
IRPA 27 (1): A permanent resident of Canada has the right to enter and remain in Canada, subject to the provisions of this Act.
IRPA 19 (2): An officer shall allow a permanent resident to enter Canada if satisfied following an examination on their entry that they have that status.

@Oldmacwright It is not 100% moral to use this method, but it still remains practical for an inland PA with previous visa who has urgency to travel within 2months of landing for a short term. We all know sometimes, situations just don't work for the PR travel document.

Thanks, we will probably wait until we get the PR card to be safe, we are planning on going to see my wife’s family around Christmas so will have it way before then but would of been nice to hop on a plane almost right away for a cheap package holiday somewhere like the Dominican just to get away for a week and relax/celebrate after many years of stressing over my wife’s status and the PR process!
