Was your application refused? Not entirely sure why based on the letter you received from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada? If you would like to obtain the officer’s full notes or, the GCMS notes, you can make an Access to Information Request. The notes also include all communications to and from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. These requests can only be made by Canadian Citizens.
Our Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant can make these requests on your behalf. These are of great assistance when assessing the refusal of an application to see how to address the reasons for refusal when re-applying, or when applying for Judicial Review.
Take Note: There has been a big increase in processing times for GCMS notes. Processing times vary from 45-90 days.
Copy of Notes
You will be sent a copy of the notes issued by the Canadian government once issued which takes a minimum of 30 days.
