72 days and no updates. Called and they said nothing missing with my case. Is there anything that I can do to expedite it?

Hey,

Landed inland (Vancouver) on August 16.
No idea what a ghost update is.
When you say approved/ submitted are you referring to your PR application or should there be something else on my CIC account that refers to the actual PR card application?
Total nightmare.
No card yet.

I understood only today that we have to link our PR card application to our EE profile to track it online. Refer to this post - https://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/threads/steps-to-check-pr-card-status.511665/

I had changed my address online after I gave the one where I supposed to go after landing. I called CIC 2 times, talked to 2 different agents and both confirmed that the card will come to the new address. As I am reading thru some threads looks like it can take upto a couple of weeks for CIC to print and post the cards after approval.

Wanted to check if anyone else is sailing in the same boat
