Hi guys quick question:

Does anyone know what is the official date that you become a landed immigrant? Is it the date your COPR is approved on the portal or is there another process that you have to do in order to validate it later?

Thanks!

Did you clim points for your job, if you did, then you should wait until you receive your COPR.

If you claimed points for arranged employment, one of the conditions was that the offer would have is that the employment is offered "for at least one year after [IRCC] issue(s) your permanent resident visa." If you leave your job, then the "year after clause will also go away" as the employer who gave you that undertaking will withdraw the offer, and thus you will lose the points.

So far IRCC has not issued any circulars or policy in this regard. As soon as your change your job, and if your application is still in progress, you have to inform IRCC, and your offer of arranged employment will be subject to verification, even if your eligibility is passed.
Thank you for ur reply @legal

That means anyone who didn't claim any point for job, will not face any issue even if they leave the job.
As per my case, my wife is the main applicant and I have applied as spouse. I didn't claim any points for my job as it is not a Canadian working experience though I have mentioned the experience in work history.
My question is if I want to leave my job now, would it create any impact on our application? If I leave the job, I just need to inform IRCC about it, isn't it?
Please suggest.

As a dependent spouse you only get points for your Canadian work experience. You can leave you job if you have an open work permit and work for any employer.
