well, as far as I know, COPR is only after booking the Landing inside Canada, which from what I've heard is a nightmare to find spots available, and now with COVID, being that probably the only option, it should be even worse!
If you’re already living in Canada: in-person landing appointments cancelled
We cancelled all in-person permanent resident landing appointments at our offices in Canada until further notice.

If you haven’t gotten your COPR yet
Currently, we’re finalizing applications based on the documents you submitted with your application. In some cases, we may need to contact you before we can finalize your application.

We’ll contact you if we need more information. Use the Web form if you need to update your contact information. Finalizing applications may take longer than usual during this time.

If you got your COPR, but haven’t landed
If we sent you a COPR, but you haven’t been able to go to one of our offices in Canada to validate it, we’ll contact you to tell you what to do. Use the web form if you need to update your contact information.

You should not travel to a port of entry to validate your COPR. This is not considered essential travel and you won’t be able to validate it this way.

Due to COVID-19, we have a new process to confirm permanent resident status. We don’t need a COPR for this new process if you are in Canada.

My AOR is March 28th
I am exempt from Bio and they were updated Oct 9th. I spoke to guy at IRCC today and he said my application is approved but not finalised and it came take up to a month to receive COPR yet. Has anyone had similar experience to this? And did it take a month to receive COPR? Hopefully a month is worst case scenario!
IMPORTANT QUESTION: I've always knew, from friends of mine, that after application approval but before COPR, we needed to do the "Landing", by exiting the country OR booking internally on a very TOUGH schedule... Has that step been exempted during these times??

How fair is it too take biometric of recent applicants not February and March

I have not heard about anyone recent, what I've seen is people who were exempted from biometrics collection getting their COPR even though their AOR is from June, or even July...

Have you?

My best guess is that IRCC was using previous biometrics (from study permits, work permits etc) on biometrics exempt people from the beginning, therefore when the exemption came in IRCC had all the info need for security and background check to finalize the application.

I'm seeing people with April AOR getting COPR (in land applicants) whom are biometrics exempt.

In that case March AOR people should also receive COPR but I dont see that case.
