Latest Update from IRCC – Changes to CPO-W Processing Timelines

Please note a change in processing timelines at CPO-W. If an application submitted to CPO-W is missing information, the sponsor will be provided with 30 days, rather than 60 days, to submit the requested information. If the requested information is not received or if an extension is not requested within 30 days, a final 15-day letter (rather than 30-day) will be sent. If no response is received after the final 15-day letter is sent, the application will be assessed with the information available on file.

The change in timelines from 60/30 days to 30/15 days is effective November 7, 2016.

These new timelines apply for sponsorship applications, as well as OYW and Add Dependant applications.
