Putting an application into process (Interim Pathway for Caregivers)

This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by IRCC staff. It is posted on the department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

Following a positive completeness check, the Case Processing Centre in Edmonton (CPC-E) does all of the following:

  • creates a file in the Global Case Management System (GCMS)
  • enters “CG” in the “Category” field in GCMS
  • enters the special program code “PPC” in GCMS
  • cost-recovers the applicable processing fees and enters confirmation in GCMS
  • records the GCMS file number on the paper file
  • sends an acknowledgment of receipt to the applicant informing them that their file has been placed into processing

The “application received” date at the CPC-E is the lock-in date. Processing offices should therefore not change the “application received” date entered by the CPC-E at file creation.
