Hello Everyone,

Just want to check if anyone is a similar situation as mine - below is my timeline:

Permanent Resident Card

  1. We received your application for a permanent resident card on June 18, 2021.
  2. We sent you correspondence acknowledging receipt of your application(s) on September 29, 2021.
  3. We started processing your application on September 29, 2021.
I have been stuck on DM since Sep 29, 2021. As of date I have exceeded the 137 day timeline as specified on IRCC website - 141 to be precise.

I live in Toronto. I have reached out to my local MP's office:

On the first enquiry I have cited an urgent need to travel due to family reunification. I showed a confirmed air ticket and COVID reports of my parents. I even raised a webform on IRCC website with the same information and got acknowledgment for that.

Below is the response from the MP's office on the first inquiry (two weeks ago):


"In inquiring with the IRCC today, I was informed that everything is completed with regard to issuing your PR card. There was only a note entered by the processing centre indicating an issue with the pictures. However, we don’t know if this was just a glitch in their system, or if they’ll ask you to re-send the pictures.

I was advised to inquire again in two weeks from today to see if the PR card is mailed to you. In the meantime, if the processing centre sends you an email to re-take and send the pictures, please let me know."


I received no PR card in the mail and no request to resend photos from IRCC. No changes online as well.

So I followed up again yesterday (the two weeks had lapsed) with the MP's office asking for a status update on my application.

The MP's office said they will follow up but I received no reply today.

My question - is there anyone else also with a similar situation? My case is very unusual and stressful. I don't know what to do now.
Did you upload photo in portal??

Nope - I was not asked to. No communication or notification update whatsoever from IRCC.

Either though mail or through portal you have to send your photo...you got copr or ecopr?
I have a confirmation of PR in paper copy. But I haven't been requested to send photos through mail or upload them. My application is a PR card renewal, I already have my first PR card (which is now expired).

My situation is similar to you but when I contacted my MP office, everything on my application was good , no issue with pictures. I was asked by MP office to follow up after 3 weeks if I don’t hear from CIC. It’s 2 and half weeks already, there is no status change. I will have to contact MP office again. This is very annoying! My application was received May 14, DM since Sep 9.

I have been reading somewhere on this thread where someone said there seems to be an issue with applications with DM in September

Did you try reaching out to your MP?
