Default How long before you hear?

How long is it likely to be before you get any sort of acknowledgement from CIC regarding a PR app?
I sent my app off by courier and it was received/signed for, 6 weeks ago today.
I am applying via Federal Skilled trades from within Canada.
Is there any way of finding out if they have even opened/looked at it?
Thanks in advance

This might be of help - it details what happens next.

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigra...next_steps.asp

After you apply, a Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) officer will verify that you have:

filled out your application forms correctly and signed them, paid your processing fee, and included all documents.
If your application is not complete, we will send it back to you without processing it.

The Centralized Intake Office (CIO) will contact you when it gets your application. You will be told what you need to do and what will happen next.

You could also check the ECAS, using your current reference.

Thanks Siouxie

I have looked at that and have checked on ecas using my client i.d. from my twp ( not sure if thats the right one) and it says "We were not able to identify you using the information you provided."
How long should it be before they contact you ( or is that like the proverbial piece of string)
it would be nice to know that at least something is happening.

ECAS can be temperamental, lol. One quirk is that if you put "UK" down instead of "England" or "Wales" or "Scotland" or "Ireland" it won't find you.

I would think you would hear that they have received it soon - though when they will start processing it is anyone's guess. They do seem to process a little quicker when the applicant is already in Canada, so fingers crossed yours goes through soon.

We received our AOR just last week. It took 4 weeks from the time we sent it and got medical requests the same day. This was via pnp but I don't think you should have much longer to wait

Its just so frustrating, I know they have received it because we sent it signed for, Ah well, I suppose no news is good news, just have to keep waiting
