Family class applicants can now get a text message when IRCC gets your application package.
The text confirms that family class sponsorship application package reached at processing centre (CPC) mail room. But that does not mean that application package is complete or CPC has started to processing you application. IRCC will send the sponsor a letter or email with an application number as soon as the processing of that application begins.
This will keep the sponsors and those who are being sponsored well informed about progression of the family class sponsorship applications.This is only one among many changes brought to Canadian immigration file processing system by the immigration friendly Govt in Ottawa voted to power in Oct 2015 by Canadians.
