October 13th applicant here! Haven't heard anything since medical passed in April. I haven't been expecting to hear anything for a couple months but all the October applicants getting AIP and SA is making me anxious lol.

Also, I linked my account but my spouse never did. In this case how will we know if we get SA?
Relax it is a waiting game. I am september applicant and I didn't hear nothing from IRCC since medical exam passed in april 22 .
The Sponsor approval SA u will received buy E-mail d'ont worry even the AIP buy E-mail.

Thank you! I'll relax and wait as I've been doing :) also, I wouldn't be surprised if mine takes a bit longer since I'm from a problematic country lol so I'll keep that in mind too

We officially have PR!!!! Can't believe this journey is over.

The interview was very straightforward, and the interviewer was very nice. He just confirmed first date of entry to Canada, and asked if the applicant committed any crimes, if we have any dependents, and if the applicant was denied entry to any country. He didn't ask the sponsor any questions, just focused on the applicant. He voided all the previous work permits and visas, including in the expired visas. He also asked if we were planning to travel in the next 2 months, as that is the estimated time for the PR card. We did have plans but now we will not be going.

And that's it. He printed the paper, which is just a plain white paper with information on it, and said to keep it safe, and said congratulations you are a permanent resident now. The whole process took 20 minutes from the time of the interview.

I'd like to thank each and every one of you for your support and help, our application would have never been so robust if it had not been for all your contributions. We are truly grateful to be beginning this new phase of our lives :D
My wife landed earlier today too and can report exactly the same experience as you, there literally is nothing too it! We arrived 20 minutes early and got called in right away, we were done before the actual time of our appointment!

We were surprised the PR document was just a print off on plain old white paper, was figuring it would be something more fancy looking with a watermark etc lol

We then went straight off to get SIN and health card, this was a massive relief as she was out of status so had none of this.

Would also like to thank everyone on this forum, it’s literally invaluable when going through and understanding the process!

Hey guys I just called IRCC and they said to me that my file was transfered from Mississauga to Vancouver ! !!! And when I asked why they said because there is a lot of applications processed in Mississauga so they send some to Vancouver.
Is that true ? ?
Thank you.

Thank you.
A number of other applicants had their file transferred to Vancouver due to increased workload at Mississauga. Speeds up the process.

Ours was the same - transferred to Vancouver before going to our landing office. It's a file sharing / work share thing, nothing to worry about :) I had called CIC and the lady I spoke to explained that it's just a regular step, doesn't slow things down.
