CIC CANADA Needs a SYSTEM Reboot.

Hello Readers,

I wanted to start today’s article by sending a word of advice to anyone from CIC, who visits us regularly. Yes, CIC does need a reboot and the situation is turning to emergency with every passing minute.

On May 26th 2017, CIC issued Draw 64 with invitations to PNP specific candidates with score of 775. This holds importance in 2 important ways, with this draw CIC released some pressure of growing number of candidates and PNP candidates are cleared from the next upcoming draw. But this clearly shows an important point, CIC is facing a lot of backlog after virtually giving out ITA’s in thousands within past 3 months. As we calculated in our previous post, CIC has indeed issued over 39,769 invitations this year, leading a massive backlog on agent’s desk.

Virtually, every single application has slowed down or delayed by months now. Our candidates who were getting their medicals cleared within 5-7 days of application submissions are now taking almost 30-50 days just to see their meds passed. The next steps of security, eligibility and other requirement checks are taking months instead of weeks. Every step in the application status change is taking over a month as of current trends.

There are some candidates sitting with ZERO UPDATES on their application for over 90 days now.

The candidates who have waited months to get their PNP are facing another roadblock with CIC giving LEAST Priority to PNP candidates. The usual timeline for clearance of a PNP candidate is almost twice compared to that of FSWO, which itself has twice the processing timeframe compared to CEC Candidates. It should be noted that NONE of the applications submitted to CIC Canada are processed in the order of submission. It’s a complete mess, completely random immigration service. It looks like there is no priority, no system left in this Canadian Immigration System. The system maintains ZERO TRANSPARENCY to the applicants, the candidates can only check their present status of the application with no timeline reference, no guarantees on application approval.

With candidates receiving rejections after 3-4 months of application submissions, it’s hard to imagine the situation which will be faced by candidates submitting their apps in June. Our clients from Jan batch are awaiting PPR, while few from FEB are awaiting their meds to be cleared. CIC may have issued ITA’s in thousands, but they must be wondering now how to handle all the applications coming their way.

With scores dropping to 415 already and poised to drop further, it is possible that PNP’s are rendered irrelevant. The question is WHAT’S THE LOWER LIMIT ? How much can the CRS fall, for the system to manage efficiently ?

Only the future holds the answer for our queries. We can only suggest those, who are considering to apply for PR, it’s a mind game now, it’s a game where patience holds the key to your success.

Think of Australia as an alternate destination of getting your residency. With transparent immigration system and quicker processing timeline, it always something you can keep as secondary option.

Let us know in comments section about your timelines.

Regards

    I really hope someone from IRCC looks it this post and reports it to the concerned person.
    I also think that the process is getting messier everyday. I have been to lot of forums regarding this issue. Previously many things could be expected but now nothing can be expected. People getting rejected even after 6 months…… I think IRCC has to stop playing with people’s emotion. I have even come across cases where people with no mistakes in their application are being rejected.

    My only suggestion to IRCC would be “Eat only what you can, if you eat more than your capacity then you may have diarrhea, food poisoning and a lot of discomfort in your stomach”……..

    Stop being resist and and give fair and equal treatment to all the applicants…… People here love Canada and they want to migrate for better future, which means better future of the country as well. IRCC should stop focusing on rejecting applicants just because a full-stop or comma is missing in the application. Atleast give a chance for explanation. Just because you guys have lots and lots of workload doesn’t mean you should be biased.

      I completely understand what you feel on this, it’s actually irritating to see rejections coming on cases, where the agent could have raised a document request. It’s simply not humanitarian anymore.

    Its Been a very much frustrating for the IRCC Time Frame for FSW and PNP Applicants and specially for PNP-Outland Applications because they have literally stopped issuing PPR for PNP Applications and giving only priority to CEC people only. If they want only people already in Canada than stopped the other streams and invite only CEC applications. FSW and PNP people are outside of Canada doesn’t mean we are not qualify or we cannot contribute to Canadian Economy after coming there. We have also paid the same fees , provided same set of documents , given the IELTS, have education accredited than why this humiliation to PNP and FSW people. Stop Being only favorable to CEC and give fair processing to Other Streams. Wake Up CIC else Canada will not be the choice destination for new people becasue of Bias to the Other streams.

      I completely relate to your pain, we have seen lots of FSWO applicants stuck in this process loop for no reason. Despite paying same fee on same process, the process is discriminatory.

    I am in the EE pool with 444 points, I am yet to get an ITA and honestly I am getting scared of all these, feeling discouraged even. What is the point of going through all the stress and getting rejected over simple things after many months? Getting really confused.

      With 444, you should have received ITA long time back. Check again the scores have dropped to 415 now.

        I just entered the pool a week ago, hoping to get ITA in the next draw, I am just concerned about the way CIC is treating out-land applicants, it is not fair at all, makes me wonder why the other streams are still existing if they want inland candidates only.

      Technically yes, unfortunately it’s only a gut feeling as of now. Wait for today’s draw to see the future trends.
