Hi,
I am an inland CEC applicant and have received CoPR on June 13, 2020. Based on instructions therein, I had submitted my photographs which reached the IRCC Edmonton office around Jun 30, 2020. Then on July 8, 2020, the final decision that my application has been approved was made which was updated on my CIC application.

Based on the CoPR document, my permanent resident card is being produced and mailed to my address on file. It’s been over 3 months since then and I haven't received my Permanent Resident card in the mail yet. Also I have successfully linked the PR Card application to my CIC profile, where my PR application status still shows as "submitted"

I have submitted the IRCC webform twice, but received a generic response each time saying that my application is under process. Wanted to know when should I expect to receive my PR card in the mail?

It's taking almost four months right now just for the processing of the card. Then you need to factor in additional time for mailing. So sometime between 4 and 5 months to receive the card.

Currently it is taking very long to get a PR card as most offices are closed.

When you sent the photographs, did you send them by regular post or did you send them with a return receipt. So you know when they were delivered?

Hi Cheena009,
Did you receive your PR card yet. Based on the "Check processing times" page, the average processing time for first time PR Cards is 124 days (as of Nov 10, 2020). I believe your application has exceeded that.

My CoPR date is June 13, 2020 and PR application approved date is July 8, 2020 (after sending the photographs), still awaiting PR card.
