I am waiting still waiting my COPR document. But my application was complete in July 24th and became a PR resident. I called the IRCC , she mentioned to me, nothing to worry about and that am a permanent resident since 24th July and i mentioned like a friend of mine received the COPR document but i did not, she was like , some people receive it some do not, each case is different. She was like wait for your PR card, i was like how but i havent sent my picture to them or anything. I was like they;ll use the picture i sent with my application, she was like yes , if they need anything from you they will send you , but so far you are a permanent resident and i couldnt understand her well when she mentioned to me that my PR card was submitted or in process. So basically ill just have to wait if i receive nothing by end of September we will send an inquire more about it. But i guess , i should just wait for my PR card to arrive. Hope this is a good feedback to whoever is in the same situation as mine and is a bit worried about it. cause it has been a month since i became a PR resident
thanks for the details.

Hi Folks. Sorry I haven't been so active over the last couple weeks. Busy times.

Can anyone provide some advice for me regarding applying for my permanent SIN online? Which option am I supposed to select for Application Type? Is it:

  • First Social Insurance Number, or
  • Update or Correction to SIN Record; or
  • Other

This is at https://sin-nas.canada.ca/en/Sin/

Thanks in advance.

Congratulations I’m September 19th,2020
Etobicoko Office?
Mississauga, looks like, but I'm in Vancouver. :) You'll be soon! I just randomly checked my e-mail this morning and nearly had a heart attack, I wasn't even expecting anything.

I thought all September was done already
Not quite. There are several of us who hadn't received it yet; a few gaps on the spreadsheet. I think they're mostly done but everyone's processing time is a little different. They have started October though, so you guys will be seeing movement, which is great!

If you have a temporary SIN from your OWP already, I would say "Other" and then specify change from temporary resident to permanent resident, and then the form lets you tell them your temporary sin number, but thats just what I would do

If it is the first time you are applying for SIN (no SIN from OWP), then the application type will be 'First SIN'

If you already have a temporary SIN from OWP, the Application type will be 'Change of Status' - Your status changed from Temporary to Permanent.

There is an option of 'Change of Status' in the application type. You don't have to select 'Other'.

Ok, I applied to change my SIN from temporary to permanent (at https://sin-nas.canada.ca/en/Sin/) by applying for a Change of Status and supplying:

  1. Primary Document: CoPR
  2. Secondary Document (Identification): Passport Scan
  3. Address Document: Notice of Assessment letter from CRA for 2019 Tax Return
Does anyone know:
  • How long this should take to process;
  • How the SIN will be supplied (e.g. document via email on file, post, etc.)
Thanks again in advance.
