No there is no date on it, but I am checking it every day so I know the date. It's showing decision made in the process link.
Will it take 2-3 days to receive it even though I applied for urgent processing?
Gus17 I found this : https://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/threads/urgent-pr-card-renewal-timeline.484021/

This member in 2017 claims to have received it 7 days after notice that it was mailed. I am sure it will also depend on where you are located in Canada. Hope this can help a little.

Anyone has experience sending a doctor's note about family member's health condition to support an urgent request?

I sent my application but not sure I can get it before my flight (Dec 8th), so thinking about submitting another urgent request. My father, as many old people, have some health conditions, but not serious/need our immediate presence, but I haven't seen him for 2 years, and already booked the tickets.

Doctors in my home country are not used to write these kinds of notes/support letter.

Any help appreciated!

Hi ,
I sent my father's doctor's note and his previous medical reports about his medical condition for my pr card urgent processing as they refused my application because of wrong photo dimensions. I also attached my own written letter explaining whole situation why i need to go there. I also attached my flight tickets.

And it was proccesed on urgent basis and i got my card by mail last week.

I sent my application to IRCC in early April got the whole package returned in July due to incorrect photo spec. My bad!!:(:( Then, I resent the new photo together with the new application form, it arrived IRCC on July 26th. So far, I've never got AOR or update on ecas. Just called the call center a couple minutes ago, got the automated voice respond "any application received after 19th July have not been processed. The current processing time is 107 days." Renewing PR card is really a long and winding road. Checking the application processing time and status has become my new routine. May God bless everyone!!

Hi, Just wondering if you already received your PR card in the mail? Since you said it was mailed last friday.
I don't believe so, I think my partner checked the mail yesterday and there wasn't anything there. I was thinking it would probably take at least a week, so hopefully by this Friday or early next week.

Same here. My application was sent for production on the 10, according to a call centre agent. I am assuming same applies to you guys as well.

I really dont understand their process here... I check the processing times on the immigration site and it states 70 days but it seems to take alot longer...or is that just for them to pick it up and start looking at it... crazy..

for me i sent my application in on Sept 10 but i forgot to put my paid receipt in the package i guess i will ecieve it back around christmas and retry and hopefully get it before the summer. geez this is a stupid system

My point exactly why they can’t open the application within a month after receiving to check if it’s complete and take 2 months to process so if there’s a mistake you don’t have to wait 4 months to find out.
