Hello Margaret and All,

Thank you for your inquiry. To the best of our knowledge, it takes 11 - 12 months to finalize processing of a Group of 5 sponsorship application in Canada (the first stage of processing). If your group submitted a sponsorship application in November last year, then you are still within that timeline and in the coming months you should hear from ROC-O (Resettlement Operations Centre in Ottawa that replaced Centralised Processing Office in Winnipeg) with regard to your submitted application.

One of our team members will contact you to talk about your case in more detail.

Kind regards,
RSTP team

Subject: [PSRList] Time line with Group of 5 Undertaking

I am wondering what experience other Groups of Five are having with regard to CIC response to a submitted undertaking.  Our group applied to make a joint application to sponsor a family of three, plus a de facto dependant (18 your old daughter). Our lawyer looked the undertaking over and thought it was good.  It was mailed November 14, 2017, and we have not yet had any response of any kind.  This seems way outside the usual time frame.  The refugees are Syrian and the application was made well within the time period during which all Syrians applying  to Canada were deemed to have refugee status.
I am becoming very concerned that our package was never received.  Have other groups experienced this kind of extreme delay?
