Hi @legalfalcon....Hope all is well at your end.
I ordered CSIS notes two months ago through Getgcms and was provided with a tracking number. However, I'm not sure where to use this number!... Can I track the application by myself or only the personal who submitted my CSIS request application?
on onther note, can you give an insight on how CSIS and CBSA work? Do I need to wait for CSIS to conclude their work before CBSA begin there's, or they work parallel to each other?
Thanks
For the tracking number see - https://www.getgcms.com/blog/tracking-gcms-notes/
This post is also applicable for CBSA and CSIS notes. The tracking number is provided to you and you can contact CSIS or CBSA directly quoting the number to enquire about the status, but it is recommended that you let GET GCMS handle that, as they have direct emails for ATIP officers, and also will avoid any duplicity.

Usually CSIS will complete its checks, and submit its findings to CBSA, who will then do it verifications and submit the entire bunch to IRCC. In a nutshell, both work parallel to each other, however, CBSA taken longer. CSIS and CBSA only make recommendations and it is ultimately upon IRCC to make a decision on that.

@legalfalcon,

After getting my ITA I have changed the following information. Is this okey? I have mentioned these changes in the LOE.

1. Start date and end date of my qualifications.
2. My new designation. I got promoted recently, but only after getting the ITA.

Will these changes have an affect on my application. I know that it will not change my CRS score.
No, these changes will have no impact on your CRS. However, make sure that your start date and end dates of your education do not overlap with your work, for which you are claiming points, if the work and education was in Canada.

@legalfalcon
Please I need help with my gcms notes. Both the program analyst and program assistant wrote review required on my us visa refusal and answer to statutory question. In the statutory question, I answered no to have u applied to IRCC before. However, I applied to Saskatchewan twice. One was returned due to incomplete documentation while I withdrew one because I got a nomination from another province. My question: hope this will not delay my application. Aor is April 4 and still on ip1 since April 12. Hope review required will not take forever?
By review required, they are simply deferring the decision to the Officer to make a conclusion on the eligibility. A visa refusal has no impact on your PR process, if the refusal was not because of fraud or misrepresentation.

As regards your prior PNP application to the Province, no need to worry.

Keep a track on your application, and request GCMS, and see what the Officer has to say.

The eligibility takes place in 2 stages. First an program assistant or analyst will review an application and then the recommendation is reviewed by an officer who makes a final determination. This stage is also the longest, barring any security or SS. So the final determination is what is pending for eligibility. Since your Eligibility is recommended passed, your file may have been sent for BGC.

Hi @legalfalcon

I queried this on some other thread too. Can you please advise.

I had applied for PR through EE in Mar 2017. We had my stepson added to my application who won't accompany us to Canada and since we were not able to provide his medical the file got delayed.
Finally now in the month of June NDVO asked me to provide declaration to exclude my stepson from the application which we provided on 19th June and on 21st June, first time ever I saw my medical status as passed. I did receive a status update mail that day post which I checked the cic account and saw the medical passed.

Now my query is if they have accepted to exclude my stepson which I think they have based on medical status, do they remove the my stepson from my application or will it still show on my CIC account. I have no other issue pending and awaiting my PPR however I still see my stepson as dependent included in cic.

Please advise

Need help:
Hello,
We have received email from MHB(Migration Health Branch) requesting to contact Doctor who performed initial medical exam as they wasn't to get more testes done for my spouse.
Additional requested tests: Sputum and TB culture. We have 60 days to comply as per the email
We are in process of arranging documents as per ITA checklist which is due end of July.
I called same Doctor who did our initial medical exam and he is asking me to find out nearby facilities who can do these tests for my spouse.
Issue:
1) As per email/letter from MHB, doctor is suppose to order requested tests for us. Instead he is asking me to get it done and send him results. Regardless, in USA one must have doctors order(letter) to perform any test, but now I am not sure how this will work. (Forgot to mention this doctor is located in neighboring state, 200 miles away)
Lets say, If I get this tests done and submit results by myself to doctor, so that he can upload it on eMedical system. Will this be ok? Any thoughts?

2) Sputum and TB culture test takes up to 8 weeks to get results. But the email says I have 60 days to comply with the requested test. Now technically I will not be able to get this test done in 60 days as the test have not yet started. Any thoughts?

3) The number on email is Canada toll free number which for some reason I am not able to call from USA. (1-888-242-2100). I wish to contact them to get clarification on timeline. I cannot reply the email as it says in email that do not respond to this message. Any thoughts on how to contact them?
1. You are correct that the Doctor is responsible to refer you to the lab that will do the tests. You should insist that the doctor recommend you the lab. If he does not, then you can get it done somewhere close to you. Maybe since you are not close to him, he asked you to get it at a location close tot you.

2. The Emils only wants you to get the tests, not the results. After the tests, the Physician will send a compliance report to IRCC, and later when the results are in will send the results. Discuss this with your physician. If he does not agree, then get the tests, give him the confirmation, and ask him to give you a confirmation, which you can send to IRCC.

3. Raise a CSE, that is the way to go, or you can send an email to CPC Ottawa.

I am not sure what reason you have provided to not being able to provide the medicals for your step-son. If IRCC has agreed to exclude his meds, then still his name will appear on the file, as a non-accompanying dependent.

Since I am not clear, who the PA is, and who is the biological parent in the application, I cannot comment more here.

I am the PA and the my hubby is the biological parent and the exclusive custody is with the exspouse of my husband. We did provide a detailed letter of explanation along with phone call details, messages details, and an affidavit from a common relative of my husband and his exspouse, who actually went in person to talk with them and was denied any help. We have given all this and had requested to exclude my stepson from the application. After which we received a request from NDVO to sent a notarised affidavit as per format they provided. After we submitted this affidavit within two days the medicals was cleared.

My Gcms generated on 29/5/2018 shows security done. And only eligibility in process.

The request for affidavit from ndvo(12/06/2018) and subsequent changes to the cic account with respect to medicals (21/06/2018)

Many thanks @legalfalcon.
I emailed getgcms to inquire about any updates for my CSIS notes. Their response was since CSIS letter mentioned that my SS was still under process two months ago, I wont receive my notes and will need to lodge and pay for a new CSIS application?!? For some reason I assumed that they will release the notes once there done hence I already paid.

Thanks @legalfalcon. My education and work is not from Canada. But my education is part time and it overlaps with work. So then no problem there.
