No you can not without their approval. In the CoPR we received it is clearly mentioned '' NOT VALID FOR TRAVEL ''
I have raised a webform yesterday to inform them that I am ready to settle in Canada.
My agent advise me to book my flight and then to use ArriveCan to get their approval.
If anyone has more information, please feel free to share
If your COPR is issued after 18th March, 2020 you cannot travel to Canada unless you fall under an exemption list. Only applicants with a valid copr and prv dated 18th March or before can travel even if they don't fall in essential personnel list.

Raising a ready to travel webform won't be of any use and please double check with the agent because if you are not an essential worker then you won't be exempted and are under travel ban.

Please help me out

PPR request - 16th September 2020
Passport sumbitted to vfs global Kuwait - 28th September 2020
Under process at IRCC office - 7th October 2020
6 weeks have passed no update till now...
Relax bro. Even if you get your visa you may still not be permitted to fly to Canada as per their rules (only PR applicants with a valid copr and visa on or before 18 March 2020 are currently permitted to enter Canada) unless you fall in another exemption category (most likely essential worker with valid job offer category).
Anyhow you can try contacting vfs and use the reference number that you may have gotten while submitting your passport to enquire about the status of your passport.
Good luck.

Actually I have a blood sibling living in canada who is a Permanent Resident, so I can travel. However, even if I can't travel, atleast they can stamp the visa for me. I mean I have never heard from anywhere that the embassy has kept the Passport for 6-7 weeks? specially for a PR case..

Since my case is immigration, and I’m a PR now I think I just need to book a ticket regularly and use my visa to enter as said in the booklet that came with the passports and the CoPR
Hey,
Have you travelled to Canada yet or not?

Actually I applied for closed work permit through a representative and I didn't go for medical. I just gave my biometrics nd after that got my PPR letter nd submitted my passport.
