Case Processing Pilot Ottawa Timelines- please add your experiences
 
As there now seems to be a few of us who have had their files transferred to Ottawa to expedite processing, thought it might be useful to start a thread for processing timelines on this pilot scheme.

Please add and update your info so it can be of some help to others. It will be interesting to see how quickly cases are now dealt with. Please add what info CIC has requested in their correspondence with you, as I know if differs between people. Thanks and good luck! :fingerscrossed:

Looks like we are all around the same time, give or take a couple of weeks.

Would be brilliant if they keep up this speed;)

I am not a 100% sure but I have heard that the request for Passport is received within 3-4 months after medicals for PNP candidates.

We are the 1st in this league so have to just wait for one of us to receive PR to have a better understanding of the timeline.

Our lawyer reckons 2 months, but I don't believe that. A work colleague in same position had meds in September and is still waiting for their passport request :frown:

So far we've not heard of anyone whose been transferred to Ottawa actually getting their passport request. Not sure if they are in fact going to expedite processing at all at this rate, rather just get everyones's hope's up:unsure:

I do not believe in that either. But I did receive a reminder email from Ottawa regarding medical examination. Goes to say they are pushing hard on expediting the process.
My email from Ottawa also stated that they take 10 months to process the application, which is not the case in Buffalo.
Additionally, I was reading a blog and this one candidate had received Passport request in 6 months. So they might be trying to fill a quota and PNP's are looked upon as most favorable candidates.

Our letter said 10 months too I guess I'm just too impatient. Just want to know that we can stay, then buy a house and send our eldest daughter to Uni next year etc, etc:fingerscrossed:

Lol! I am sure it will all work out. Once you receive the request for medical its awfully hard to be patient. Its been 2 months since I applied and there isnt a blog I haven't read.

I was ok and getting on with life here as we didn't expect to hear anything back from CIC until at least Feb 2012. The out of the blue medical request has just got me stressed again!:ohmy:

Finding it really hard to concentrate on anything right now.
