You dream of immigrating to Canada and have filed an application with the IRCC.
But wait, are you left in the dark before you eventually get a decision on your application. Or you got a standardised letter of rejection and you are trying to understand why your application was denied. For better clarity lets recognize that in order to help applicants understand that their applications are being handled in a timely manner, IRCC publishes standard processing times for various types of applications on its website. The IRCC website provides online tools for monitoring the status of an applicant’s case. Beyond these choices, there are other avenues for obtaining client file information. One such example is to ask the immigration officer(s) notes who are working on the case. Immigration officers are required to log the activity that takes place on a file, including when documents have been submitted or obtained, and record their rationale for denying a case. Such notes are entered in IRCC’s Global Case Management System or “GCMS”.
What is GCMS?
GCMS (Global Case Management System) is a software system used by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to process immigration and citizenship applications. GCMS is a single integrated system designed to process applications both inside Canada and outside.
The system contains a detailed record of each applicant’s file, including correspondence to and from IRCC, documents received from the applicant, detailed notes from the officers reviewing the file, and other relevant information.
CAIPS or Computer Assisted Immigration Processing System was the computer system used by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (now IRCC) for application processing outside Canada. CAIPS is now replaced by GCMS which was introduced in 2010.
GCMS Notes provide valuable information on the current status and future processing of your application for Canadian Visa cases such as Express Entry applications, tourist visas, Study and Work permits. For negative visa decisions, the GCMS Notes contain far more detail than the reasons mentioned in the refusal letter.
The GCMS database also contains information on persons who are (or were) inadmissible as well as enforcement actions taken against them including inadmissibility reports, removal orders, warrants, lookouts, etc.
If you think your case has been unreasonably delayed or rejected without any specific justification, then contact us to apply for these GCMS notes which will help you understand what has happened and plan for what to do next.
We at CaipsCanada have a safe and secure process to request your GCMS file and you can start the process right here.
Access to Information
For requests made under the Access to Information Act, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has 30 days to respond to a formal request. However, this period may be extended for a reasonable period of time if:
• the request is for a large number of records, or
• the request requires a search through a large number of records and meeting the original time limit would unreasonably interfere with the operations of the government institution.
A time extension may also be granted if consultations are necessary to comply with the request that cannot be completed within the original time limit. You will be informed about the extension and its length, within 30 days of getting your request.
