CAIPS is an acronym for Computer Assisted Immigration Processing System. It is part of the Electronic Data Processing (EDP) system used by the Canadian Immigration offices to process visa applications.

It is best to get it after receivng your IA. I learned that. I got it last year April, when I only had my AOR and it didn´t give me much information, only a brought forward date which wasn´t important. At least now since my file got transferred to LA and they emailed me saying that I need an interview, I requested it again so that I could find out why.

So I would say to get it at the stage that you assessment is finished, but I know the itch you get after receiving your file number you want to see if there are any other information regarding your file. So it gives you a peace of mind, but don´t put too much hope in it if you haven´t received your IA.
