Just wanted to let you know that for people whose application is getting processed at Montreal Visa Office should expect longer processing times.
I have gone through few threads on CanadaVisa website, and many people have shared this info.
My application is also getting processed at same office, close to 5 months still background not started.
Order GCMS notes to know about your visa office or just to know if everything is fine in regards to your application.
