You don't have to do anything. What matters is you have a valid visa. The visa office that issued it does not matter

They probably have a boilerplate response since many people ask the same question lol.

lol that's for sure, but let be honest, if you apply from i dont know, from India, and you receive a visa issued to Japon, you probably will say "wtf"?

Hi Maksin, I got my visa having the same problem. It says it was issued at Mexico instead of Colombia. Just to be on the safe side I would like to talk/chat with someone that works at CIC. do you know how can I contact them? I read in your post they were really good at answering back to you... it could be possible that you pass me the contact info?

Thanks so much!!!

As already answered above, Mexico city is the VO for that area. There is zero point in contacting IRCC, as it is not an error.
