2) Do I need to do self-quarantine if I don't show any symptoms (does self-quarantine applied if you enter by road.?)
3) How do i making landing appointment

1. Yes
2. Yes you need to self-quarantine no matter what. Asymptomatic people can spread the virus.
3. No appointment needed. Landing is done when you enter Canada.

My COPR came on May 5th , expires on June 21 my lawyer says u can still go ,doesn't matter.
We told him bout March 18th rule.
He says no that doesn't apply for u , u can still go.

He gave us number to call border service , Because we have to travel by land.

I called the number , they ask few details and then said u can't come because of March 18 rule!

Don't know what is going on.?

Can someone explain this better !

Can I travel ?

So you are asking whether CBSA are correct or the lawyer ?

Yes !
because my PPR came on March 9th so he is saying u can travel.
So I don't understand which date to consider and to plan my travel or not.
My COPR expires on July 21.
And I have travel from US by land.

Can you be clear about the issue date of your COPR, doesn't matter when you received it, what is the date it was issued? Regardless of what your lawyer says if it was issued after the 18th March you cannot travel just sit tight and await further instructions from IRCC. If it gets close to the expiry date email IRCC and providing your medical result was normal you will get an automatic 6 months extension to your COPR. Currently if you are allowed to travel you have to quarantine for 14 days on arrival in Canada so technically flag poling can't be done at this time.

My COPR was approved on 5th May

Hello,

Did you get to actually travel? If so, it would be helpful if you can share your experience.
