This package is useful, once you have filed your immigration application, or later.
The immigration department maintains records of the Applications processed both within and outside Canada in a GCMS database. This is not the same information as that available in online account. Apart from information submitted in the Application Forms, the records contain comments or notes made by the Immigration officer on the file. This information is valuable as it provides an insight into how a particular application is being viewed by the immigration department, and the issues that they consider important in decision-making. This helps us advice the applicant on ways to make a more favourable presentation and address a possible lacunae in the Application, before a decision is made. In most cases, this can either reduce processing times, enable the client to face the interview with confidence, prepare the client better to address the issues that are likely to be raised, or in a worst case scenario, avoid the dejecting rejection of an application.
In addition, records held by other Government agencies are also relevant in certain immigration matters. These records can be obtained from Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) or Immigration & Refugee Board (IRB).
