Hi everyone!
Still no news, it’s been so long I’m starting to wonder if something’s wrong with the Ottawa office or if they lost my pictures.
COPR received: January 21st
Photos received by Ottawa office: the week of February 15th (mailed without a tracking number)
2 ghost updates: June 2nd and 13th
They did tell me by email on July 5th that “all the required documents and information have been received by the responsible office for the moment”
No news since, even my MP hasn’t been able to give me new information.
I’m thinking of mailing pictures again this week.
Why do you want to send back the pictures if they told you that they already received all the documents ?

Where did you get this information from? Nevertheless this is good. My sis submitted her pics to the etobicoke office and they arrived on March 2 and she is still yet to get her PR card. =
There is hope people....My sis got her PR card today in the mail. It came from CPC-Sydney. We thought it would come from Etobicoke since that's where she mailed the photos.

I was told by a few people that they lose pictures sent by mail every now and then but they don’t admit it so when it really takes too long sometimes sending new pictures works. No one from IRCC officially told me that but since I have a doubt I’d rather do it just in case it can help. I’ll send my new pictures on Monday.

Is there something else we can do to get them to respond about what’s going on? It’s getting ridiculous.
Absolutely, I’m running out of ideas. I wish they would just give us the opportunity to submit our pictures online now since all the new permanent residents have to do it. It would make things easier.

An effective tactic is to write to the MPs of the opposition who are in charge of immigration agendas ( people on the Facebook group are doing this today)

***
NDP: Jenny Kwan: jenny.kwan@parl.gc.ca
Conservative: Jarsraj Singh Hallam JasrajSingh.Hallan@parl.gc.ca
Bloc Québécois: Mario Beaulieu Mario.Beaulieu@parl.gc.ca

*****
They are known as « opposition critics for immigration » and their role is to hold accountable the government for failures In the Immigration system. I suggest we all write them—they might bring this issue into parliament, especially since it’s election time (and this makes the liberals look bad). For this reason, they might want to get this to the press.

So let’s all email them and tell them how we are being forgotten and without status—and how IRCC is ignoring us and the press!

Did anyone send photos to Windsor IRCC for PR Card in March, 2021 ?
Hi! May I ask if you have already received your PR Card and when? I also sent my photos to Windsor IRCC last June, but haven’t received it yet. I just want to have an idea of their processing time as well.

Winnipeg office. COPR April 26th. Photos mailed April 28th. Account linked but no update.

I see IRCC processing times now down to 50 days from 123 days last time I checked (for first PR card).

Anybody who has received cards from Winnipeg?

Hi everyone,

I am in Canada. I still have not received my first PR Card.

However,
I have received my CoPR through email in Feb 2021 from the IRCC in Montreal.

As requested in the email by the IRCC in Montreal, in order to get the PR card, I had to mail back (through Canada Post) 2 photos and the CoPR to the provided address in Montreal in Feb 2021. ( just a few days after the CoPR acknowledgment)

I have not heard anything from IRCC since then, I have not received any kind of acknowledgment about the status of my first PR application.

As you know the current processing time for New PR card is 50 days. And I have been waiting for about 150 days so far.


My questions are:

- Do I need to register on the new PR Portal and submit a new PR application? is this going to make any kind of conflict with what I already sent to IRCC by mail?
- Is there an application number for the first PR card? -- I do NOT have one
