At this point it is a rotating strike ( walk outs)  and the wait times of increased not halted ( as of yet)
Visitor visa now 21 days and for permanent it has increased as much as 4 months on wait times.
There is nothing permanent except change.

 My MIL's visa has yet to be touched, she sent it in early June. they said it were not going to be processing it anytime soon. That's word from Moscow.

Don could be, not sure about Moscow. From what I checked, they are still processing in Ukraine.
But much slower. I guess I am about to learn much more in coming days.

Not sure if anyone has done recent Documents from Ukraine to Canada.
but any new info would be helpful?
Thanks in advance.

 Iryna somehow lost her Permanent Resident card somewhere. I just spent the day going through the CIC website filling out the forms to apply to get a replacement one.... what a pain!!!   :'(

 The estimated time for her to get the replacement one is 106 days, but with this strike who knows how long it can take.  :(
 All you guys with Canadian wives with PR cards... tell them to treat them like passports and take good care of them. Trust me, you don't want to go through even more paperwork after finally getting through with all the immigration!

As an update, we have done a TR tourist visa request online this year, and the turn around time was about 10 days for a rejection, and another 10 days for a subsequent approval.
They have really improved with the online system.
