PR Card Renewal & No Status update

Hi All,

I have applied for my PR Card renewal (paper based) in April 30, 2021 and mailed through Canada Post. Right Now I am in Canada and still there is no update in CAS (Customer Application Status) portal.

Last year I remember, I had submitted my wife PR renewal same way in May 15, 2020 and after waiting 4 months, we received an email from CIC stating that your (my wife's) application for Permanent Resident card has been received by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) on 2020/05/26. After receiving this email, we have found that her CAS status also changed and within 1 week decision was made and we received her PR card within a week.

So I was also waiting for this kind of email from CIC which will update me that they have received my application on xxx date. But its now almost 6 months since my submission date but no email and no update in CAS. Btw I would like to mention the following thing:

1. Do you meet the residency requirement? -YES
2. Do you have a more complicated travel history than your wife? -YES
3. Did you have fewer residency days (around 740) at the time you applied for the PR card renewal? -YES

I need to fly outside Canada for some business purpose, appreciate if you guys can advise or update me if you are facing the same issue or not. Thanks in advance.
