I got my eCoPR on March 7th.
The photo on the portal is still “In review”, address confirmed.

I got GU on April 7th that something was updated, but after I refreshed, status on PR card is still “Submitted” and after that nothing :(

Hello All on GC Key my status is showing up as "We mailed your permanent resident card to you. Your card can take up to six weeks to arrive." Just today i have recieved an status update. while on ECAS its still showing up as Decision Made. Please advise if anyone else has these two different statuses based on the earlier comments of this thread it is assumed ECAS gets updated first and then GC Key, however in my case its the reverse.

Also does it really take 6 weeks for the card to be posted or can i expect it sometime next week in mail.

Hello mates. Here to share with you guys my PR renewal timeline:

Application sent: March 08th
Mail Reached: March 14th
AoR e-mail: April 13th

Tried to check my status right after receiving the IRCC message and couldn't. Used all the name combinations possible and also the Client ID and Application Numbers. Any suggestion on how to access ECAS?

Will update accordingly!

Hi, does anyone have the same issue as me?
outside Canada and used COPR for landing

Jan 09, 2022 - landing at YVR
Feb 24, 2022 - link PR Card application to CIC
March 8, 2022 - Your application was approved

In document status, it said the PR Card is mailed on Mar 8, but I haven't received it yet. The status is now showing "Your document is valid."
Does that mean my card is sent out but maybe lost on its way?

Sorry if this has been answered but I could not find answer- my parents arrived 3 days ago as PR , will their PR card also be sent as fast as yours? or there is a different timeline for those who arrive from outside?

Recently got updated to DM. Hope to get my PR card in March. Faster than expected but I was more than 1 year above residency obligation. This is for a PR card renewal. I am also about to apply for citizenship


Permanent Resident Card
  1. We received your application for a permanent resident card on January 21, 2022.
  2. We sent you correspondence acknowledging receipt of your application(s) on February 23, 2022.
  3. We started processing your application on February 23, 2022.
Just got notification my PR card was mailed out on April 14. Hopefully I receive it next week as I need to renew my Medicare too
