Thanks.No, they did not ask for any PCCs. The COPR comes with a letter explaining the soft landing process and the only other thing besides the COPR and passport is Birth Certs and some sort of proof that you can sustain yourself financially for a couple of months ( i dont know what the minimum amount would be ). I think that the birth certs aren’t a necessity, more like a nice-to-have.
Hi
Can you tell me when The CoPR is sent? Does it come together with the Visa?

For everyone who's waiting, I wanted to share an update on my journey. I've been lurking and the 2018/2019 threads have been so helpful and kept me mentally sane throughout.

28 Nov 2019 AOR CIO
10 Mar 2020 Request for proof of funds, police clearance certificate, medical, RPRF
20 Mar 2020 Medical passed
9 May 2020 Notification for pre-arrival services
- PANDEMIC -
15 Apr 2021 Email from SGVO "application approved"
19 Nov 2021 Request for 2nd medical. Client Application Status: "Decision Made" -> "In Progress"
14 Dec 2021 Medical passed
27 Jan 2022 CAS: "In Progress" -> "Decision Made"
14 Apr 2022 Submitted webform to query application status (timeline past 100% and also 1 year since last email from SGVO)
20 Apr 2022 Webform reply, PPR

Here's the strange thing: SGVO said they sent the PPR email on 27 Jan (where CAS status changed) but I did not receive it. Neither was there a "We sent you correspondence..." update. Imagine if I hadn't sent the webform!

**This is NOT a suggestion to start spamming your visa office.**

So now, I'm preparing to send my documents to the VAC. The total time is <37 months so maybe the processing times will be updated soon? :)

Hi , MinhAnh
I did not have to send off the passports as my country of origin does not require a stamp visa for Canada (eTA country).
Therefore a Visa was not needed in my case. They automatically issue a one-year eTA for nationals of visa free countries.
The CoPR took about 12 days to arrive via the local vfsglobal.

I did not provide PoF upfront since Schedule 6A mentioned that it will be requested later if necessary. They asked me for bank statements; I provided past 6 months' statements + bank letters indicating the date each account was opened.

OK. Thanks. I provided 3 months statements prior to submission of my application but had to invest the funds bc the processing is taking too long. Can't afford to leave the monies domant for too long. Wish I won't be ask to provide PoF

Have all of you who applied in 2019 gotten your residency? Trying to figure out how slow things really are
Still waiting, as a matter of fact, we’ve already forgotten that we have an on-going application for PR in Canada under the self-employed program. Unsure if they still remember us? If they’ll grant our application then, great! If refused, then great! What matter is the decision has made. No false hopes. It’s been done.

Beyond that, same scenario.

Would like to know too. Since applying we have researched other areas and we have changed our minds about the place we put in the application. I'm not sure if it matters or not (assuming it's not Quebec).
No. Not at all. I hv couple of guys that landed through this stream. U can land anywhere in canada. No restrictions. Its not like PNP.
