@legalfalcon we are currently in Canada and have received our eCoPR. Wanted to double check with you the followings:
1. eCoPR (and Medical) Valid to date is Oct 3rd. Does it matter whether we get our PR Card by this date or not? I believe eCoPR doesn't expire, right?
2. My spouse's eCoPR has incorrect Original Entry Date and my kid's Last entry date is off by a day. Do we really need to get them amended?

@LaniS I found this somewhere so it might help you

Linking PR Card application;

1. Login into your CIC account as you usually do.

2. Reach the page where you click "Check full application status" to view your application and messages

3. But do not click on that rather click on " Add (link) your application to your account"

4. Select the "Category" from the dropdown as "Permanent Resident Card"

5. Under Application Details, from "Please select one" select "Unique Client Identifier (UCI) and Family Name"

6. Put your UCI as it is NO SPACES and NO HYPHES

7. Put your Family Name as on you CoPR - UPPER and LOWER CASE matter here

8. The tricky one, Place of Birth Section. Here "City/town of birth" is very very crucial. Copy it as it is on your CoPR, any commas, upper/lower case, spaces, just copy it here.

9. Select your "Country/territory of birth" from the drop down

10. Next section is pretty easy as you just select your "Date you became a permanent resident" from dropdown. This is the day you did your landing by either flagpole or landing interview

11. Put "Country of Citizenship" and "Current marital status" from dropdowns.

12. Click "Search for my application", if all the inputs are correct then it will show you that the system has found your application. You just have to click Link my application to account and it will now be shown on "View the applications you submitted" page with your Permanent Residency application.
Updating point-8 as per my experience:

1. COPR has no expiry date. The date on the COPR only reflects the date before which an individual who is outside Canada has to land in Canada. For individuals who are in Canada and receive an e-COPR the COPR is signed and does not expire. You can receive a PR card anytime and it has no bearing on your COPR.

2. It would not matter. However, if you wish to have it corrected you will have to follow :

can this be done while the ecopr is in process? or before that? Also what would be the date of pr? Would it be the date i submitted the pictures and address?

anyone who submit photos on January/CoPR Feb, haven't received their PR card yet?
I've been trying everyday calling IRCC at 7:59am but can't talk to an agent. Sent a webform 3 weeks ago with no replies.

I got my ECOPR in Feb and have been waiting ever since. I tried everything. They just tell me to wait…

Hello everyone,

I received an email shown that: PR Confirmation - An update has been made to your file! Your case has been reviewed and an electronic copy of your confirmation of permanent residence (eCoPR) document has been uploaded to your file.

Is this the official ECOPR email?

I think most people received their ecopr with: congrats, you are now a permanent resident (PR) of Canada! IRCC has uploaded an electronic copy of your electronic confirmation of permanent residence (eCoPR) document in the PR Confirmation Portal.

So confused regarding this issue. Is there anyone know the differences?
