First time PR holder. Landed April 7, 2022. Today the portal status said "Application Updated", but there is no update/message/email.

Can anyone shed some light what does this mean?

Hi guys! I got my PR confirmation on May 11th. Got portal credentials and uploaded my address and photo to PR portal on May 12th. I got ECOPR on May 13th and I linked my PR card application. But since then my application status is showing as "pending registration". Can someone advise what that is about? Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know if PR card applications after landing for the family are processed separately? I landed in March 26, 2022.

My wife's PR card has been approved and she has received her card as well. But my son's and my own PR card status is still shown as "Submitted".

Recently though, I received a letter under my son's name that his application was put on hold due to the photograph not matching the requirements and I have already sent them a new set of photographs.

But for me, I haven't received any letter from them and there has been no update on the status of my application. I am a bit worried due to this. I was wondering if our applications are being processed separately because that can explain this situation. Or that the home address under my application was entered incorrectly into their system due to which any letter they sent to me have not been delivered.

Does anyone know if family applications are indeed processed separately?

Hi Everyone,


I have a flight overseas on the 26th of May. I have just declared that I am in Canada on the 20th of May, now waiting for IRCC approval on my "declaration of presence in Canada", however, I am a little worried that if the IRCC review of my declaration of presence takes too long and I will be already outside of Canada..

I was wondering if leaving Canada before my declaration of presence in Canada is approved would get flagged and jeopardizes my application?

Does anyone have any experience with this?

My PR approved on 18th of May,
Received the portal credentials on 20th of May.

Hi all,

I have the same question as an earlier post I wrote except there's one more thing and hoping someone can shed a light on this.
I already landed in Canada in early april of this year, but as mentioned previously I had to come back to my homecountry to close up some matters. Now, a job opportunity has since shown and I may have an interview soon in Vancouver. Since I do not have my PR card yet, my plan is to fly into Seattle and rent a vehicle to cross the border all the way to Vancouver. However, the quote for renting a vehicle from Seattle to Vancouver is close to $400 USD. I do not want to cough up that much cash just to rent a vehicle, when the price of a bus ticket is around $40 USD. I know that a PRTD is needed for commercial modes of transportation, but from what I am understanding it is that commercial modes want you to have a PRTD before allowing you to board, but it does not say anything about whether or not Canadian border services cannot allow to enter once at the port of entry and you show them your already active COPR, passport and other supporting documents. Am I correct in my thinking? I'm thinking of simply taking a bus from seattle since the bus line does not really check if you have travel documents, except for your passport sometimes, plus i'm from a visa exempt country. What do you guys think?

Hi All, I applied for application of PR card replacement and received AOR Nov 12 2021. The status is decision made since Jan 12th.
When I called the agent I got to know my PR card is printed and has been randomly selected to be picked up in person at Etobicoke office.
I also got a response on webform saying my PR is approved, but since I have been selected for pickup from Etobicoke office, I need to wait for an interview slot and carry the documents for the interview if they request for any.

Its been in this status for close to 4 months now, and I am unable to contact Etobicoke office. Have anyone faced this issue , and is there any way of contacting Etobicoke office or expediting this process. Its been frustrating waiting for an update, I also have some urgent overseas trip planned.
Any leads will be really helpful, thanks
