GCMS notes or CSIS notes can be requested through Access to Information and Privacy Acts (ATIP) requests. This is one of the most powerful tools at your disposal when immigrating to Canada. There are numerous use cases for submitting an ATIP to access GCMS or CSIS Notes, especially when your application is delayed or rejected. You can order GCMS or CSIS Notes with ImmiSearch or submit a request yourself.
Complete guide to GCMS notes submission
Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and any individual present or corporation in Canada can make a request. If you are neither of the above, you can ask a representative like ImmiSearch to make a request on your behalf.
The majority of GCMS notes are delivered within 30 days. Government agencies like IRCC, CBSA, and CSIS are required to respond to your ATIP request within 30 calendar days of receiving it. While the majority of requests are completed within 30 calendar days, this period may be extended for 30, 60, or 90 days
ImmiSearch can submit the request on behalf of you for a $40 CAD service fee. Please complete the following form if you'd like ImmiSearch to submit the GCMS notes on behalf of you.
