Update to the procedures related to police certificates and Express Entry completeness checks

Summary

The instructions on procedures related to police certificates and Express Entry completeness checks have been updated. Language revisions were made to clarify the text, and under Exceptional circumstances, the instructions have been changed to reflect that clients are required to provide both proof of having requested a police certificate and an explanation of their best efforts to produce a police certificate before the 60-day deadline after their Invitation to Apply has been issued. In addition, the instructions have been revised to reflect that police certificates are required up front and are mandatory for each country where an individual has lived for six months or more in total, not necessarily in a row.
