Thanks for your question, Aqsa.
I have a couple of suggestions that I hope are helpful. First, have you gone online to check your application status with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship here You may also want to check in with their Call Centre ( if the online application status tool does not provide you with the information you're searching for.
Best wishes on coming to study in Canada!
