COPR is completely different document. You can search that online. So I think this is just information letter. I got the same letter. Not sure wheather to wait for actual COPR to get delivered at my home or to send photos with this letter
I believe it's a different document as well. I'm gonna go ahead and wait for the COPR letter to arrive in the mailbox.

I'm planning to send a COPY of the physical letter (COPR) with 1 photo to the address requested but the instruction doesn't mention 'A copy', it just says 'COPR'. I'm pretty sure they've asked for a copy but can someone chime in please?

"If you have a Confirmation of Permanent Residence (CoPR) document in-hand, please send it along with one photo that meets our photo specifications to the address listed above"

I'm not sure my answer is helpful or not, I have the same situation with you guys. And I called IRCC yesterday, the agent told me that I won't receive COPR, I need send a copy of the "information letter" and a photo to the address that listed. So I just did what she asked me to do after I hanged up the phone. But based on my viewing of your replies, the agents have different answers of our situation, so IDK I did wrong or right.

Thank you CG7, I received nearly the same message BUT it's missing the most important bit, I'm guessing i'll just have to wait for the COPR document in the mail.

If you do not have a (CoPR), please print a copy of this letter and send it to us along with one
photo that meets our photo specifications to the address listed above; we will produce your

Anyone knows how long it takes to produce the PR card. I might move to a new place in a few months. Will I be able to update the address?

As per my thinking, this is the standard information letter that everyone is getting. Now mentioning this portion " IF YOU HAVE COPR IN HAND" could means so, as we all know they change the process recently. Earlier we had to send our passports, and they were only approving applications after PPR and they used to send COPR with our passport back to our home. So what happened is many people sent their passports for application approval and for COPR during first and second week of March and even last week of Feb. Now from what I've read here those people didn't get their passports back until now. So what I'm guessing is that they'll get their COPR with their passports and EVERYONE INCLUDING US AND THEM got that information letter. Because for us, our application was approved directly, for them it was approved only after sending their passports. So I think they are not making any new COPR and they are only giving this Information letter. I can be wrong but that's what I figured from current situations.

I tried calling CIC, the automated message informed that it takes 15-20 business days to process a PR card after they receive the photograph.

Interesting. In my case I got an e-mail with letters saying I'm a PR now and should mail them our photos with UCI on the back, but when I log in to my profile the status is still submitted and it says they are reviewing my elegibility....
Following, this is the exact status of my file.

I am in the same boat, I got an email including a copr attachment, but my profile is still not updated, i sent a picture for PR card but no response on webform yet...
What do you mean by COPR? Are you talking about Information letter that we all got? Because COPR is completely different document which looks more like study or work permit.

You’re correct.
