The Citizenship and Immigration Canada website has been notoriously behind-the-times when it comes to posting residency application status info online.
For the hell of it, I checked it today and it is just now showing that our medical reports have been received in Ottawa. We happen to know, via FEDEX tracking, that they have been there since July 17, 2007. Prior to this "update" the last info on the site was that our file had been transferred to the New York City office on November 16, 2006.
It appears that government bureaucracy and "efficiency" will be one thing that is not different between the US and Canada . . . .
