GCMS (Global Case Management System) notes are essentially all of the notes that CIC will have on your file. Regardless of the type of your application, under the Access To Information Act and Privacy Act. There are lots of people who would do this for $10-50, but in reality, a request costs either $5 administrative fee (under the Access to Information Act), or free (under the Privacy Act).
I have found myself in a situation, where I may have to renew my work permit in order to maintain my legal status within Canada. My current Post-Graduate Work Permit expires in April 2014, and my PR application is nowhere near to be approved (my estimate is that it will take 6 to 12 more months, depending on how fast my medical examination will reach them, and how long it will take for a background check). Luckily, there is a “Bridging” Open Work Permit Program for applicants under the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Canadian Experience Class (CEC), Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) or the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).
