Here it is - https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/express-entry/application-approved.html

If you’re already in Canada
We’ll contact you and let you know what to do next.

You’ll need to have a short interview with an officer. You have two options for your interview:

  • make an appointment at one of our offices in Canada (best option)
  • go to a Canadian “port of entry” (border crossing), and present:
    • proof that you have the funds to support yourself and your family
    • your Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR) and your permanent resident visa (if we gave you one)
During the interview the officer will:

  • make sure all your documents are valid
  • ask you a few questions to make sure you still meet the terms to immigrate to Canada
  • confirm your Canadian mailing address, so we can mail your permanent resident card (PR card)
If you change your address within 180 days of getting your status, you must tell us using the web form.

So if I do get the PR application approved. Can I just take my COPR to one of these offices mentioned above?

Thanks for the inputs. I am yet to reach the stage where you guys are, I have recently submitted my application in Express entry, FSW CEC class.
Is there no other way for the people who reside in Canada on a Work Permit to get their COPR issued?

I believe I read somewhere, if you are in Canada and your application for PR is approved there is a local office within the city and you could get your COPR paperwork done. I am hunting for the link. Will post once I find it.
Yeah, it's possible. Most people choose to cross the border to get the process complete faster, as we have to wait around 3 weeks to hear back from CIC when requesting to schedule an appointment and another month for the appointment itself.

Ah ok! Now I get it. The time difference is the key.
