Got remedical request in January saw my GCMS notes today
**OFFICER REVIEW** EE Eligibility: passed. Based on documents submitted and assessment of Case Analyst/
Processing Agent, I am reasonably satisfied that PA met the minimum requirements of CEC/FSW programs
regulations. PA meets the definition of provincial nominee and selection under PN program. I am satisfied that
PÅ meets A11.2 assessment. PA appears to have the ability to become economically established in the
nominated province. I am satisfied that PA meets eligibility under EE-M1 PV2.
This is a note that shows that you have conclusively met the criteria for the program under which you applied, i.e. PNP (PV2 is the code for PNP nominee applicants).

Since your eligibility is conclusively passed, your security would be initiated.

To read on security, see https://bit.ly/3apWglN

My new set of notes has the same status as my last notes I received in August last year:

Eligibility: Passed
Security: Not Started
HIRV:
Criminality: Passed
Org Crime:
Medical: Passed - Expired
Misrepresentation:
Info Sharing: Complete
Other Reqs: Not Started

However, when I checked the notes in detail, about 90 pages have been removed with a note saying "Pages are withheld pursuant to section 16(2)(c) of the Access to Information Act". The same note also appears in my parents' notes who applied for a visitor visa.

Since my security has not started, I am thinking that this is not related to security screening.

When I checked section 16 online, this is what I found:

Security

(2) The head of a government institution may refuse to disclose any record requested under this Part that contains information that could reasonably be expected to facilitate the commission of an offence, including, without restricting the generality of the foregoing, any such information

  • (c) on the vulnerability of particular buildings or other structures or systems, including computer or communication systems, or methods employed to protect such buildings or other structures or systems.
@legalfalcon any idea if this is cause for concern?

There is no need to be concerned, most GCMS notes will have information redacted under s15 or 16. However, redacting 90 pages is way too much.

Also, IRCC had reported the following messages for some GCMS notes released:


"Please be advised that we are currently experiencing a system glitch and for this reason some sections have been removed from the report. Rest assured that we are providing you with the most recent report which includes the status update of the file, the officers electronic notes and/or the reason for refusal."

But this was most likely resolved.

If you see anything relevant thing missing, as compared to your last notes, you can get the Office of the Information Commissioner review the redaction if it was in accordance with law, if it all matters.

Hi @legalfalcon,

Please note that i called CBSA yesterday, i have a valid copr post march and AL, from what i understood i am allowed in the country but my immediate family are not allowed as soon as my application is approved, but only when my status is updated on their system or something like that. Any idea about this please? How long does it take for my status to be updated on their system? Shouldnt a copy of a stamped copr be enough proof ?

Let me know what you think.

Thank you,

This is common, if you contact IRCC about it you may receive a response like this

We can confirm that some information was removed as it is exempt from disclosure under the Access to Information Act. The applicable section(s) of the Access to Information Act that were invoked are listed on the letter for your convenience.

Did you provide ALL applicable consent forms?

Thank you,
If you have a Valid COPR and AL, you can enter Canada as you are exempt form travel exemption. As soon as you land, and are admitted into Canada, you become a PR, and thus your immediate family becomes eligible to travel as they will be exempt under immediate family exemption.

Your status should be updated as soon as your COPR is stamped and a copy of the stamped COPR should suffice as proof of PR. However, you and your family cannot all land at the same time.

Hi @legalfalcon

is there any difference between (CEC+PNP) and (FSW+PNP) for reviewing and processing timeline? both INLAND
You can either be a CEC, PNP or FSW. There is nothing as CEC +PNP or FSW + PNP.

As per the IRCC published data in IRCC's annual 2019 year ending report, it takes 8-9 months for an application to process. This was pre-COVID
https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/corporate/publications-manuals/annual-report-parliament-immigration-2019.html

How long did it take to process an Express Entry application?
Table 35 displays the time, in months, that IRCC took to process 80% of applications under each program. In 2019, IRCC did not meet the processing standard of finalizing 80% of all applications sourced via Express Entry within six months. The processing time for Express Entry, overall, was eight months. As an alternative measure of processing times, 60% of applications finalized in the 12-month period ending on December 31, 2019, were completed within the six-month service standard.

Table 35: Processing Times for Express Entry applications finalized by year and immigration category, in months

Canadian Experience Class457
Federal Skilled Worker469
Provincial/Territorial Nominee669

Data is operational and as such should be considered preliminary and subject to change.

  • Processing times refer to the time in which 80% of applications were finalized by IRCC. The processing time is measured from the day a complete application is received until the time a final decision is made by an immigration officer.

Thanks for this. Very helpful.

Do you know what it means the last update on processing applications?

We’re currently finalizing most applications we received between

May 10 and 16, 2020
In the past 3 months, the majority (80%) of the applications we finalized were received during this period.


My understanding is that in the last 3 months, they were basically processing application from 6 days in May....?

Hello @legalfalcon

Recently, I did a medical test and my blood pressure was 130/90. All my other tests were normal. I asked the doctor if my blood pressure was normal and he said that it's normal. He measured it only once and didn't even request any further tests. Usually my blood pressure is around 120/80 but I was little bit feeling nervous when I visited the clinic.

However, I was reading the "hypertension" manual of IRCC https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/ircc/migration/ircc/english/department/partner/pp/pdf/imei_hypertension.pdf

It's mentioned that

High blood pressure is defined as a repeated blood pressure (repeated 3 times) measured in the doctor’s office, of: -
≥140mmHg systolic pressure; or -
≥90 mm Hg diastolic pressure.

My questions are

-1- As per the above statement in red, can I understand that my blood pressure is considered a "hypertension" since my diastolic pressure is 90? The clinic told me that if my blood pressure was 140/90 or more, it is considered as hypertension.
-2- Might IRCC reject my application because of this 130/90 blood pressure?
-3- Can people with hypertension still pass the medical test?
-4- If everything is alright in the medical exam and only there is a relatively high blood pressure (like 130/90), can this causes inadmissibility?
-5- What are the cases that are considered as "excessive demand" cases? Can blood pressure of 130/90 causes an "excessive demand"?


Thanks for your usual help!

It is true that some applicants are receiving COPRs. It could be that case that they are getting it based on their request that they are extended or immediate family members.

Also, eventfully they will have to give COPRs to all outlaw applicants once the travel restrictions are relaxed, which should be late summer hopefully.
Got CoPR and visa october 2020, no ties, no family, no essential job... Can't do anything but wait until doc's expire or until restrictions get lifted.
Meanwhile we wanted to purchase a business which can't go on
