Hi all,

Here's my situation:

PPR received: Nov 14, 2017
Passport received by CIC: Nov 17, 2017
Approved: No update
Return Tracker: Not activated

We are inland, and we have had to send photocopies (my daughter and I are on eTA), and a passport (for my wife). We have travel scheduled for December 15th from earlier this year, and we could not see our application advancing so quickly.

I did include a letter along with the photos/passport/photocopies/Annex explaining that we have a planned trip in about a month's time and was simply requesting that they contact me if they knew it wouldn't be returned by then along with the COPR - so no actual request to expedite it. I also sent an email with the same information/request, to which they responded that they cannot provide any information, except where it is an emergency.

I have also tried calling and speaking to an agent, but the volume of calls is so high, I cannot even get into a queue.

Question for people whose applications have been approved and trackers have been activated: with regards to emails - when the status of the application is updated to "approved" do you also get an email about their "being an update to my application" (as I would get previously before the passport request)?

Thanks!
Here is my situation: I thought that because I am from Brazil and I did not need visa anymore I could have sent only copies. That was my mistake. I got a letter from CIC requesting my original passports. I was able to talk to ta an agent who told me that because of high volume they would not be able to process the passport in time before my wife and son leave on the Dec 14th.
He actually recommended me to send an email to that email requesting our passport (there is an email address there that you send reply in case of any concern) letting the agent know that I would no be sending the passports now, but rather only when my wife and son return from their trip.

So, that's what I did.....there os nothing else I can do now!

Good luck to you

Hi Nanok,

Does Approval in MyCIC mean the same as printed and ready for shipping. I am getting different meanings.
For some people Approved and Shipped are the same day.
For some others Approved and Shipped are wide apart! And in the tracker, the activity Visa Printed is appearing after Approved!!!
I used the term approved to mean that on MyCIC the status was updated to approved and information about the counterfoil was on there.

Hey guys take a look at this..
Pilot project to confirm selected in-Canada permanent residents by telephone
Ottawa, December 1, 2017— In an effort to provide better client service, IRCC is testing a new method to confirm permanent residence (PR) by telephone.

Once a PR application has been approved, selected clients, who are already in Canada, will be sent an email from an address ending in “@cic.gc.ca” or a message through their IRCC online accounts inviting them to be confirmed as a permanent resident by telephone.

Clients who proceed with a telephone interview will then have their confirmation of PR either mailed to them or uploaded in their IRCC online account.

The benefit of this pilot project is that clients who are already in Canada do not have to travel to an IRCC office or leave and re-enter Canada in order to be confirmed as a PR, potentially saving clients both time and money.

Clients cannot request to be included in this pilot project, however, depending on the success of the pilot project, IRCC will determine if this should become part of the normal process for all clients.

Some questions on the overall experience may be asked to those who participated and the answers provided will help determine if the pilot was successful. This will not influence the outcome of the client’s confirmation of PR.
