Finally got my PPR. Probably would have been here a couple weeks earlier, but it went to my old address in the States (my fault).

Looks like you and I are on the same timeline. Have they received your medical yet?

I haven't heard anything about the medical yet. I certainly hope so. We had the Medical completed before we submitted the application.

What did you update on your case? did you hear anything?

Nothing to update. Still waiting. I emailed CIC a while ago to see if they'd received my medicals, but only got their standard "we can't tell you anything" response. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that it will come in soon. It seems everyone with an AOR date before mine has received some notification or request.

So now we are waiting for you.....Do you have a really common name? Maybe they are running extra background checks on you?

Yeah, I'm not sure why it's taking so long. The only thing I can think of is that they didn't receive my medicals. I checked with doctor's office and they confirmed the medicals were sent. My wife and I have the same last name. We were even married in Canada four years ago. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that there will be something this week. I've got a job lined up, my wife is already there, and we even put an offer on a house. Good news is that I have a back up plan. If I don't get my PPR by 10/1, job is going to get me a temporary work visa. Since I'm doing a transfer and I've been with my company for over a year the process will only take about a week. I'm not sure how that will affect my PR application though.

OMG! How did you find this out and what happens now?

I found out by calling the doctor who did my medical exam. I let them know that I was concerned that the results had been lost. Everyone who has an AOR date before mine has had some response to their application. Anyways, he called the regional medical centre in Ottawa where all of our results are sent. I guess they did some checking and discovered the error. The doctor said that they were faxing the results of my medical to Buffalo that same day (Friday). What happens now is anyone's guess. I hope that Buffalo has some automated system where it notifies them that my medicals have been received and they'll generate my PPR automatically. But, realistically I'll be surprised if it's less than 30 days.

Buffalo will not notify you that they got a fax or anything. I had to call the doctor, fax Ottawa....blah blah blah
Ottawa informed me that they received the medical and that they forwarded it to Buffalo, but Buffalo did not confirm that they received it,
the only thing that happened is.......after all that activity on my application, it was forwarded to the Los Angeles office. I'm sure I will get something from Los Angeles stateing that they have my medicals. This seems to happen alot!!!
