Example web form responses from IRCC

Due to the impacts of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), IRCC can’t

Also, one can send an email to CPC Ottawa at [email protected], it usually is faster than a web form. Documents uploaded using the webform are not reflected in MyCIC account, only those uploaded through MyCIC can be viewed there.
