Importance of AOR letter ?

Subject: Importance of AOR letter ?
  I never got an AOR letter, however from the confirmation of cheques (application fee) I got my file number which I checked in e-client and confirmed with my name appears up top.

I am in the march 2005/AOR pool and since it´s been a while I´m just curious if I should ask for the AOR letter? I don´t see any need of it, but since I´ve never seen one I just don´t know what good is it for besides knowing your file number (which I already got through another means listed above).

Someone said it has a fax sheet as well which one can use for any address change or so....which surely i don´t have, but again my question is if it has something that important that I should ask them to send me one?

I´m hoping to get my IA somewhere in the range of Dec 05 to Feb´06.

Any suggestions?

AOR is important in the sense that it is CIC´s communication/confirmation of your file number. However, since you have a copy of your file number (from your receipts?) and have verified it from e-cas, I think your file number is authentic.

I think asking for a copy is not really that important. I notified CIC about my change of address by a simple letter. I did not use the forms that came with the AOR. I also believe that you can use other form of fax sheets or a simple polite letter to communicate with them...the most important thing is that in every letter/fax you are going to send to not forget to write your file number....don´t worry too much about it....

I had sbmitted my for federel skiled immigration process in 27 july 2008 and the on 16 august 2008 they had send me a receipts letter and have mentioned in that letter , that they had created a provisional file for me and have given a file number. But i could not use the file number to identify my file status in website (WWW.CIC.GC.CA)They also mentioned that "because no instruction have issued by the minister as yet,we are not able to inform you at this time whether, and how your application might be affected.

Could you give me any suggesion regarding this issue? what should i do now ? please let me know.

Dear Sir,

I just want to share something to you for your further comment.

I had a friend in canada who told us lately that she met an immigrant who just arrived there a couple of months ago, and told her that their application was filed on april of 2005, and they were approved and given with the visa last february of this year. I remembered that embassy still processing the application filed on the last quarter of 2004 and in our case, we need to expect it a year from now.

Please give us your views about it.
