I sent the PCC RPRF, passport scanned copies and IMM5562 to CPC-CTD-Ottawa@cic.gc.ca all scanned copies

No PPR yet. When i check my application status it doesn’t say Medical received. I am unable to link my application to GCC key. Called the call centre and they were also unable to link my app.
They are saying that they have received my mothers medicals but not my dad’s medical. Medical was done on May 21st. My dad had to go for re- medical with the specialist which was done on May 25th.

Anyone please help what to do now. How can I link my paper app so i can see the status on My CIC
For RPRF fee receipt, they asked me to send to cpco-cost-recovery@cic.gc.ca,
please make sure in the email that you got.

We got the passports back in less than one week. They were received in Ottawa on Wednesday, then on Friday I got an update in MyCIC with the numbers of visas, and on Monday the passports were in our mailbox. We live pretty close to Ottawa (5 hours drive)....

Thank you for the input. My parents are outside Canada, so I think the post could take close to 10 business days i think but looks like visa stamping itself was close to 3 business days at best.

Thank you for your input.

Hello everyone, here's the update on my timeline. It has been more than a year since the last update (spring 2017).

On May 8th we received a request that both of my parents had to undergo second regular medical tests (it was the around the time the results from the first medical tests were about to expire). Alas, I only noticed that email on June 4th (4 days before the recommended deadline), yet lucky for me both of my parents managed were in town and were able to get their medicals done within a week. I notified the visa office (still Warsaw) of the delay, I received no reply to this email, only the automatically generated reply.

However, on June 13th I received another email to submit the final documentation to finalize my parents' permanent residency. Online status of my parents' PR application was changed to 'Decision Made'.

Please update the 2016 stats on the tracker - I will post another update when this has been finalized.

I have another question, are there instructions on how to send the documents via mail. Also to get the passports back do we have to send return envelopes?

Yes and Yes.
The PPR you receive will have instructions on how and where to send the passports. It will also ask you to send a return envelope. It will actually tell you which size envelope to buy from Canadapost.

Hope that helps.

They give you 30 days to submit the passports. They ask you to submit the passports at the LVO( Delhi in my case) but they also have a section that tells you that you can submit to Ottawa - if you are in Canada and will remain in Canada for 3 months.

I submitted to Ottawa as my parents are here on a visit.

Hope that helps.
My LVO is Mexico. I was asked to send the passport within 15 days after receiving the request. Take in account that the times and request might vary by LVO or case. Into the letter explains , if your parent are living outside Canada and currently there, you will have to mail the passport to the Local Office they asssigned to you (your LVO usually). But if your parents are already into Canada ( as visitor or temporal resident) , and staying the future three months in Canada, you have to mail the passport to Ottawa. They will send you a letter explaining all the details, don't be worried.

My mom is already in Canada under Super Visa, We had the request of the passport on May 22nd. They gave us 15 days to receive the passport. My mom's passport was received on May 24th in Ottawa. Today June 14th, I am receiving back my mom's passport with the PR stamp.

Best wishes,

Johanna

You need to follow the instructions in the "Ready for Visa" letter. If the instructions don't mention how to get visa in Canada, you need to email to your visa office and explain that people are now in Canada and please provide instructions. You can also mention in that letter that you live in BC, then maybe the instructions will be for Vancouver. We live in Ontario, and we were instructed to send passports to Ottawa. My personal guess: you will have to mail passports to Ottawa as well. But it does not hurt to ask.....
