Why isn’t there a progress bar for my application?

At the moment, the progress bar is only available for these types of applications:

  • Express Entry
    • You only see the progress bar once we start processing your application.
    • If you submitted your application, but don’t see the progress bar, it’s because we haven’t started processing your application yet.
    • It may take a few weeks up to a few months for the processing bar to appear.
  • sponsorship of a:
    • spouse or partner
    • parent or grandparent
  • Atlantic Immigration Pilot
  • Caregivers – High Medical Needs
  • provincial nominee
  • self-employed (federal)
  • Quebec-selected business class (includes investors, self-employed people and entrepreneurs)
  • Quebec-selected skilled worker
  • start-up visa
  • In-Canada protected person or Convention refugee

We’ll be expanding the progress bar to include other applications soon. We’ll contact you if a progress bar becomes available for your application type.

The progress bar is available only in your online account. If you submitted a paper application, you need to link it to your online account.
