Yeah that's the ghost update. When did they receive your photos? Based on the recent trend, people are noticing a ghost update after a week once the photos are delivered to the office.

Guys, anything/action can be taken to know whats going on with my pr card application? I have sent it to Montreal office for a month, but cant even link it and when I called ircc i was told just to wait because they have nothing on the system yet. Any similar case? Any help? Please

I am not sure whether you have seen my signature. But see below for a quick run down;

PR Approved Mar 09, 2021 / Received COPR Document: Mar 10, 2021

PR Photos Sent to Vancouver from Edmonton: Mar 11, 2021 / Received: Mar 17, 2021(Canada Express Post) / Linked PR Card Application to the Account/
PR Card Approved: Apr 08, 2021 / PR Card Mailed: Apr 08, 2021


Choose UCI and last name option while linking and provide your DOB and birth place as per passport. The tricky part is PR approve date, it is not the date on COPR. Check the approved date inside your IRCC express entry PR application portal. It is likely a day before COPR date. In my case COPR document dated Mar 10 2021 , I put Mar 09, 2021 as PR received. It is worth a try to put the date of the day before your COPR document approved( if yours done through an agent )and you don't have an access to your portal. Let me know as how it goes..
Have you received your card already? I am just so curious on the timing of receiving the card.

I'll post here if when I receive any updates! Fingers crossed!!
Noticed a ghost update today. Not sure if it's a real one as few people posted that they've received couple of ghost updates due to a possible glitch in the system.

Hi everyone!

I am reading about linking your application to your account. However, an Immigration Consultant applied on my behalf, should I ask the consultant before trying to link it?

My timeline:
COPR received: March 22, 2021
Mailed photos and COPR: March 22, 2021
Received: March 24, 2021

Thanks :)
PR card approved and mailed: April 13, 2021

Managed to link my account!
Card received today!!

Received PR card today. Time line:

2021/Feb/15 - COPR
2021/Feb/16 - Mailed photos
2021/Mar/10 - GU
2021/Mar/17 - PR card application Approved, card mailed
2021/Mar/22 - Received PR card
Congratulations on finishing the process. I'm also BC PNP and received my "PR Confirmation Letter" April 9, which looks exactly like the document you posted. But that letter is not the COPR document itself.

Questions:
  1. Did you ever see the document available to download in the CIC portal like a lot of CEC applicants?
  2. When did you apply for a change of Social Insurance Number? If you applied before the PR card arrive, were you able to use that confirmation letter?

Thank you in advance !

Hi. Did you receive any ghost update in your account prior to approval message? My timeline is very close to yours!
