Once you have submitted your application (after ITA) you can check your application status either through MyCIC and E-Client Application Status (ECAS) through this site. Note that you can only access this once you have your application number (available only after you have created your MyCIC profile) and will only be activated if you already have an ITA and have submitted your requirements (assumption based on what I’ve read in the forums).

Feel free to ask questions in the comment section, I’ll try my best to answer your inquiries.

Till next post!
