Default sponsorship application: acknowledgement timeline

Hi,

I am a Cdn citizen in the UK sponsoring my common law spouse. We sent the
application Feb 24 and have not heard anything since. I would have
expected by now to hear if I was accepted as a sponsor. Other posters in
this group are reporting 2-4 weeks for receiving acceptance as sponsor. We
sent the application recorded delivery. I am concerned that there is no way
I can track the application and confirm CPC Mississauga received it. Is
there any phone number you can use from overseas to enquire about the status
of a sponsorship application. 1-888-242-2100 doesn't work outside North
America.

There is no chance of getting in telephone touch with the CPC in
Mississauga. If you sent your package by recorded delivery then you must
know that it was delivered? Two to four weeks is scarcely possible in
reality given what has to be done with the package and the resources
available to do it. Think two months or a little more.

I found a fax number to CPC which will accept sponsorship requests.
International recorded delivery in the UK means that the item is signed for
by the receiver, that's all. I get no confirmation of receipt. Should I
start getting anxious now or after two months of not hearing anything?

Hi, I sent mine in the same date and I haven't heard anything as yet either. Processing times published on the site say 31 days, so I am looking at mid April or so.
