For those who haven't received the POE / correspondence letter on their GCKey after stamping, don't worry about it. I mean it is good to have but not compulsory. If you have already booked flights then don't cancel it just because you haven't received POE. I contacted IRCC Delhi regarding this and got this reply:

Thank you for your email. This is in response to your recent email enquiry to the Migration Section of the High Commission of Canada in New Delhi.
Port of Entry introduction letter is not required for you to travel to Canada. The information about your permit is in our global computer system and can be accessed by immigration officials in Canada. Please proceed to travel to Canada within the validity of the visa placed in your passport, your permit will be issued upon your arrival in Canada.

Gist of the email is that POE is not required to travel and the border officers already have access to your details. Moreover, I double checked this with Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) too. Cheers!

support letter is not required anymore. You can travel without it as long as your DLI is on the list.
Depends on where you’re flying from. Some airports/airlines are stricter when it comes to flights to Canada. If any of you are flying to Canada from Europe, they will ask you for this letter before boarding your flight

If I am not wrong, European citizens don't require counterfoil on passport. And without counterfoil, there is no other document for them to show to the airline staff. So, that makes sense.

Well, not all Europe is a part of the EU. I am talking mostly about those non-EU residents who make transit in Europe

You can find POE letter on GC key. All you have to do is to just print it out. Don’t confuse it with the actual permit though, that is issued at POE

I didn't have any so far, Got just counterfoil details on GC Key
How much time did pass since you got your counterfoil? I only got my letter 3 days after getting counterfoil details. However, I guess it is safe to book tickets about a month from now. By that time you will have the letter in your account
