Same here Yeti and Sam, the only difference is that our re medicals were done few days earlier to u guys. Speaking realistically not sure when it gonna come through few days, few weeks or few months. Going through this forum very glad to hear to hear about all getting through. But the question what is the criteria atleast of working on files. Looks like they play Rock Paper Scissors in the office and pick up the files randomly.

Can someone share here what Pre-Arrival letter is all about?
Here is the letter. I read on other blog that it means Eligibility Passed. Can you add Pre- Arrival Letter Date and BCG In process date in Excel sheet so we can track the process better.
Hello,
We are pleased to inform you that you, your spouse and dependants can now receive free
pre-arrival services funded by the Government of Canada. These services are available
before you arrive and are meant to better prepare you for life in Canada.
Pre-arrival services are provided on behalf of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship
Canada (IRCC) by settlement service provider organizations. These service providers
offer free information to help you with:
• Living and working in Canada;
• Getting your education, work experience, and professional licenses and
certificates recognized in Canada;
• Connecting with employers, and with free supports when you arrive in Canada,
including language training; and
• Connecting with others in your new community, including French-speaking
communities.
If you are outside Canada, we strongly recommend that you use pre-arrival services
before you leave. We encourage you to explore the list of services on the IRCC website:
canada.ca/pre-arrival-services.
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/newcomers/before-services.asp?utm_source=slash-pre-arriv
al-services&utm_medium=short-url&utm_campaign=general
When you register for pre-arrival services with one of the service providers listed on the
website, you will be asked to provide a copy of this letter. You can contact as many
service providers as you like and receive as many services as you need, and these services
are always at no cost to you.
You are also encouraged to take advantage of free Government of Canada resources
available online, such as Welcome to Canada, the official handbook to help permanent
residents prepare to come and settle in Canada. The handbook is available at
cic.gc.ca/publications.
Canada is a bilingual country where both English and French are spoken. If you are
interested in living in a French-speaking community outside Quebec, please visit
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/francophone.asp
For up-to-date information on immigration, settlement services and citizenship, we invite
you to join us on Facebook (Facebook.com/CitCanada) and follow us on Twitter
(Twitter.com/CitImmCanada).
Sincerely,
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada

For those who have received stampings.
Anybody know how long they give for landing (NDVO office)? i.e., what is the expiry period of the IM-1 visa?

It will be medical expiry date in case your passport is valid more than 1 year otherwise Passport expiry date.
