COPR Marital Status Mistake

After waiting 36 months and going from single to married I finally have my COPR. My question though is that my form says 'Single' on it.

Now the CIC know all of this as they asked for marriage certificates and a whole ton of proof before issuing my status. My Wife is listed on the form but under the relation of 'Other'. She is my sponsor and is a Canadian Citizen.

The thing is that I'm already in Canada and was planning to drive to Buffalo and back tomorrow to confirm everything. Is this something I could explain there and then or could that cause severe issues?

I've been dealing with the UK office (as I'm from there and initially applied from the Middle East) and they are ridiculously slow at doing anything.

I'm on the verge of landing a pretty good job here and I want this confirmed A.S.A.P but could the wrong marital status cause any massive issues that cant be resolved in person? I will be able to print all the correspondence with the office asking for my marriage licence.

I appreciate anyones advice on this matter.

Important info for anyone with a similar issue:

Corrections
For COPRs where a clerical error has been identified, border service officers and inland IRCC officers must correct the IMM 5688E form to ensure it is consistent with the biographical data in the passport or travel document. The corrections must be made on both copies of the COPR (IRCC copy and client copy) by placing an asterisk beside the data error and noting the correction in the remarks section of the form. Any corrections made must also be reflected in GCMS. Final responsibility for ensuring data integrity and legibility of the COPR, including the reprinting of a replacement document from the system when changes are required, rests with the officers granting permanent resident status.

Hello,
What was your experience finally? I am in a similar situation and about to land and I know how it could take a while to get a response from them.
What was your experience? Was it a problem at the border or do you have to correct it compulsorily before landing? I saw the link someone posted here regarding "corrections" of errors. Does that stand definitely?
