PR portal waiting for photo approval

Hello everyone!
I’m new here in the post, which I stumbled upon looking for answers to an issue I have. I applied in February for PR being sponsored by my wife who’s a Canadian Citizen. The processing time was 14 months, however, I received the approval email and invitation to the PR portal in August.
I replied with the address and photograph on September 2nd.
No changes in my PR portal as case status shows “in review with IRCC”.
At this point I haven’t received the eCOPR, and I need to do an international trip. Since I am a PR, I read that I need to have a PR card to return to Canada. Contacting IRCC on twitter they say I need a PR card to get back or a PR travel document. However, my trip is not intended to be longer than a couple weeks and PRTD times are longer than that.
I have a valid Work permit and a valid Visitor Visa, but I don’t know if this allows me to return to Canada. I also read that without a PR or a PRTD one can return to Canada only in a private vehicle.
Any thoughts? Thanks for reading!
Hey, I am in the same situation what you did ?? Did you travel without ecopr ??

No, I decided to stay and not travel at this point because no one, not even IRCC confirmed to me that I would be allowed back into Canada, and thankfully I didn’t do it because yesterday I received another email from IRCC requesting my location or date I would return to Canada. Since I said I was in Canada, I received a couple hours later the eCoPR, which by the way, has a big watermark saying that it is not valid for traveling.
So, according to the eCoPR, I'm officialy a Permanent Resident of Canada, but until I get the PR Card, I cannot travel abroad.
Now, the address has the "Accepted by IRCC" status, it is just the picture the one that is still "In review with IRCC"...
