For applicants who want to know the status of their submitted file or reasons for rejection as soon as possible.  Notes will be applied via CBSA and IRCC, at the same time. Both agencies have varying timelines, sometimes CBSA is faster and sometimes IRCC is faster in processing of notes. In rare circumstances, notes might get delayed by both of them.
