What are the usual requirements for an interview. What kind of paperwork are we expecting?

Photographs? Passport sized? Anything? Just curious cause I DO NOT photograph well lol( I make awkward faces like Chandler Bing maybe even worse!) So will have to make a few attempts before I am satisfied with my picture to give to IRCC to be forever posted on my PR card.
Make sure you tell them its for a PR card st the photographers, they will do the correct sizing for you (it’s slightly different to a passport photo. My wife got hers at Costco today in preparation for landing in a few days. Costco is the cheapest at 6.99, we used shoppers before and was around 13 dollars. I wouldn’t worry how you look, most people look their worst in IDs!

On my wife’s letter it says the only paperwork you need for landing is a print off of the landing letter, receipt of payment of the PR fee, immigration documents you have such as visitor records, proof of identity (birth certificate)and your passport. Sponsor needs their picture ID. Not sure if some people get asked for proof of cohabitation but we weren’t asked that.

That sounds awesome. So the lost of requirements does not actually state they need photographs?

No you definitely need photos, forgot to add that to the list though I was listing the paperwork needed.
Oh okay! That’s perfect! Thank you for the reply. I will now patiently wait for my letter. I guess hopefully it comes! People have waited long enough, Its nerve wracking

Hey guys, I have a question
I just got asked for a Police Certificate, the thing is I came to Canada in Aug 2015, and since then I've never left Canada.
I have a PCC from my country, I got it 2 months before I came to Canada (June 2015) which I had to submit it for my student visa.
Can I use this PCC, since I've never left Canada since then?
Yes you should! I was in the same situation with you and I sent that in, then I attached a letter stating why I’m only sending that in.

I wish you all will get PR cards soonnn! Love!!!
Congratulations

Why is it so long?
Have you checked with them with what's been happening? Your CIC account? Sometimes they require stuffs up there without notifying you.
I emailed them a few time and called in last week. They always said everything appears to be in order and my application is in process.
I'm wondering maybe it took so long because I failed to link with CIC account.

Sooo long. I'm sorry to hear that.
Do you think there's any redflag on your application?
Maybe you should talk to your PM and ask them to try to find out what's going on.
And order your notes. If you haven't done it yet.
Thank you:)
I could not link with CIC account until last week. Maybe this is the reason it took so long? I applied by myself.
Can you please let me know how to order notes?
Thanks!!!
