I’ve just hit the 170-day mark. I called Service Canada about a month ago to see where my application was at as I was (wrongly) under the assumption it normally takes about 4-months.
During the phone call, the agent said it was unlikely they needed any more information – they would have reached out to me or my psychiatrist (he submitted the paperwork as I have mental health issues and my GP is a young resident) by now.
Is there any truth to the fact they would have reached out by now? Could they possibly have not opened my file at all by the 170-day mark?
I have a fellow bipolar friend who was approved about a year ago (in 4-months) who said she never got any communication other than the approval letter.
Thanks in advance.
