There are still 2007 applicants waiting...
CIC announces that they will increase the number of cases they process from 16,000 /year to 26,000/year. I didn't see any official notes about "processing all pending applications in two year"... could you please share the source of this comment? I wish it is true...

What good is e-CAS if the status is updated after the 90 day deadline? After the deadline, there is nothing  anyone can do if the status says - "Case Abandoned". I would love to see how a Canada Post delivery receipt holds up to a CIC case closure. That will surely be an interesting conversation.

Going by the premise of minus35's explanation, I would suggest to all the people who are having trouble collecting the required documentation - just mail an empty envelope with Canada POst delivery receipt requested. That way you get your foot in the door and CIC can not blame you for not meeting the deadline :)
 
The point is - 'receiving tons of applications' is something CIC should have anticipated given their insistence that all applicants have a new 90 day deadline. Therefore it is them who should have planned for ways to do timely e-CAS updates given this onslaught of new packages arriving at their doorstep.
 
Given minus35's argument, we should now be prepared for even greater delays since CIC just created an order of magnitude more work for themselves by way of new paperwork being sent from existing applicants.
 
If there is a deadline that applies to us, the same should apply for CIC's updates as well. That is what is fair - after all we all are paying fees for all this work to be done. I know fairness is not the name of the game here and we all have made peace with this arrangement, but why? 
 
Makes you wonder what is it that our tax dollars working for?

You are absolutely right phaedrustoday. But the fact of the matter is that CIC is severely understaffed. If they had enough resources, they wouldn’t be a huge backlog. The acknowledgement of my parents’ application appeared months later on e-CAS. Based on our previous experience(s) with e-CAS, we need to keep reasonable expectations from CIC.

 

But you never know, may be the e-CAS will start showing updates within weeks.

I also got one of these letter. And was kind of hoping it was some good sign that they are actually working on it. But I guess not cause if so many people received the same letter and dates isnt that just more backlog?

Hi dreamk,

Can I know when you submitted your application? I did it on June 2010 but am still waiting.

Thanks.

Please post here if you have submitted your documents in response to the November 2011 letter and you hear back from CIC.

Apparently a lot of people got that letter asking for more documents, but it looks like CIC did not get back to anybody yet in response to the newly submitted documents.
 
Let us keep this thread going and make it more meaningful.
