2.For those with expired medical, Once you see that your medical has been reassessed or passed, Just know COPR is just a week away. Find details here https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/corporate/publications-manuals/operational-bulletins-manuals/bulletins-2012/423-expired-may-24-2012.html

Good luck everyone
Hi, my friend.

My profile does not show anything new.

I never had fantom updates.

My medical never showed expired and still says we do not need medical although my GCMS says it was expired March 2020.

They asked me for POC in May 2019 and I sent them by post and they have received it but my profile still says
