For those who want RCMP to send the FP result to their mail address. I guess you save a couple of weeks with that. Her is my story.
I got FP request in early 2020, and BG was become completed after a few months at that time. It took time because ot COVID. On Nov 3, 2021, my BG changed from "Completedk to "In progress", I knew that they ask for a new FP since the old one was expired. I went to a FP agency. I took the FP using the old FP request paper because there is no date on the FP request and worked for the 2nd FP. I asked the agency to send the FP result to my address. I received the result from RCMP after a week. I opened the envelop and send the original letter result only to IRCC Vancouver with FedEx. I didn't send the RCMP envelop. They received it on Nov 14, 2021. Then, I guess due to an error on the tracker again it showed me they have received the FP on Dec 1, 2021 . BG become completed on Dec 2, 2021.
Therefore, even if it is the first time you are asked for FP, it is totally fine to ask the agency to send the FP to your address once you received the FP request. When you received the FP result by mail from RCMP, forward it to IRCC. You can track it when they have receive it. Here is my full timeline for those are in FP period.
Dec 6, 2021: I got the DM in the old tracker
