There are as many reasons as "Carter" has little liver pills. You'll need to remain patient until you hear from the IRCC.

You did use the official site, I hope ?

If you included your travel date in your application, that’s good. If not you could go back in to add it. Tip, I learned once, when applying for a passport, to give a date that was a week or two before I was actually travelling. It was too much nuisance to pick up my passport and pack at the same time. I would want to not be packing and waiting for my eTA to come through at the same time, either. I never had to show any travel tickets at any time. It’s just a date.

Here is the official list of reasons from the Canadian gov’t: https:/…reasons.html
