Dears Valuable Members,

I need advice regarding police certificate. I have received ITA and in currently completing my application. One of the requirement is to provide Police clearance certificate (PCC). I am currently reside in Saudi Arabia and as per canada.ca website PCC is not required with application for permanent residence. As per website "We will send you a letter requesting a police certificate after you send your Application for Permanent Residence. You must bring that letter when you apply for a police certificate."

Now when I check forums and ask my friends they are saying that PCC is must and should be submitted otherwise application will be rejected.

Kindly let me know what should i do?

You understood correctly, don't worry.
When you get to the page of uploading your documents, a place holder will be generated to upload a PCC for KSA. You won't have that, as you need the letter from IRCC. Instead, upload a pdf stating that you need letter from IRCC. They'll send you one promptly after submitting application.
You'll have a time frame of around 30 days to submit the PCC.

PCC has to be submitted . You could also get your PCC by another means . Go to your respective embasyy , ask for NOC to criminal office -K.S.A . Take the document , attest by MOFA translate it and submit in the criminal office . In a week you will get the PCC . Attest ,transtlate and upload .

...Or he could simply wait for IRCC request, and then get it per the normal channels.

Thanks!
It does seem that they're sensitive to stays in the US in particular. I've seen applicants being asked for FBI PCC for barely a few weeks of stay in the US. They then scramble to get fingerprints done in time, while the 30 day deadline keeps ticking. It shouldn't take that long, but many are the cases where fingerprints get rejected.

Yes that's enough.
Upload it as PDF in the KSA PCC placeholder.
