Thanks, this and the news that they will process pending FSW applications as early as August are definitely rays of hope, which this thread needs more of. The rest of the stuff in the last 50 pages is pure conjecture.
Conjecture is the specialty of ray-of-hope-fsw-1

Some positive news. Hang in there.
Applicants within USA are allowed to travel to Canada. Therefore issuance of COPR makes sense. In my view, it’s not a new one. There is no hope for now.

Yeah, it isn't much, but I haven't heard of any cases of FSW-O getting COPRs, even in the US, for months.
And I'd be really happy if they just pick up speed on FSW-Os in the US and FSW-Is for now, which will at least show that decisions are being made based on COVID and precautionary measures and not some larger political move.

Parliamentary committee publishes study on COVID impact on Canadian immigration.
https://www.cicnews.com/2021/05/parliamentary-committee-publishes-study-on-covid-impact-on-canadian-immigration-0518117.html#gs.1mvmol

"IRCC has issued authorization to travel letters to many of the affected expired visa holders who were approved before March 18, 2020. However, Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR) holders who got their documents after travel restrictions first went into place are not allowed to come to Canada. These people have been starting to see their documents expire, since the COPR’s validity is tied to that of the medical exam and the holder’s passport.

To address the need for COPR holders to land in Canada and complete their permanent residency landing, the committee wants IRCC to issue authorization letters automatically. Furthermore, they want IRCC to waive the need for expired documents to be renewed while the pandemic endures.

Also, the committee recommends IRCC allow sponsored spouses with no access to a medical exam in their own country to do the process in Canada on a visitor visa during the pandemic".

Nice to see some positivity here again. :)
