Has anyone waited for 2 weeks but did not receive your PR card in the mail box? Mine was dispatched on Sep 19th. I live in Toronto so it should not take more than 2 weeks to receive it from Nova Scotia. I called IRCC the other day and the agent said the PR card was indeed mailed out. I have never had this problem receiving important mails at my address before.

I plan to travel abroad soon, what should I do now?

This is the worst part. There is no tracking available. So its just long wait till you get it.

Hi all,

I have called IRCC today and was told they are now processing applications from Sep 17.

My application was received on Sep 18 and I have just received a confirmation that they have started on it today. They also told me the linking your application online only works after they start processing it.

@trihuynh : I think they will get to your application early next week.

Here is the number I have called:+1 888 242 2100 . The lady I have spoken to was very helpful.

My landing was on Aug 27th, and the application was linked to CIC account on Aug 29th. It was approved and the PR card was mailed out on Sept 19th :( It has been over a month since my application was approved, and IRCC agent has confirmed all of these when I called them yesterday. Now I guess I have to wait, and wait, and wait.

Yes my application got approved today(3rd Oct) with message - "We mailed your permanent resident card to you. Your card can take up to six weeks to arrive."
Your application should also get approved in a day or two.
This does not sound like make sense at all. Firstly, after mailed, takes up to 6 weeks to receive it, which is crazy.
Second, shouldn't you get approval before the card is mailed? It made no sense to wait a few days to get approval after your card has been mailed.

they constantly enter wrong information for applicants. I am married, everytime I tried enter married but with other options. System showed found no application. Then one time I accidently tried enter single, my application was found. ridiculous!
Thank you for sharing what happened to you. I tried too. It didn't work. Its already past 25 days since that I landed and I did not get the PR and I'm not able to link the application with my account.
I have a vacation trip in 30 days and I have not idea about what I should do. I saw here a lot of people that landed after me, and they already got their PR card. I even don't know if there is something wrong.
:(

Hey Guys

I need some suggestion from you guys. I landed on 12 sep and was hoping of getting PR card in 3 weeks but until now no update. Call CIC 3 time and no update yet. They said everything looks good in file so just wait. Now the thing is i am going back home for my cousin wedding on 16 oct and i don't know if i am going to receive it before that or not. I have heard that you can entered Canada with COPR/landing papers by land in private vehicle. So i am planning to change my return flight from India to US and then enter Canada by land. I do have US visa.

Any Suggestion if this will work or i should wait for PR card and cancel my trip?

Thanks and appreciate your help.

Hi, I am in the same situation as you. I also landed on Sept 12 at Niagara Falls. And I have a vacation trip to Mexico em 30 days. Like you, I landed 60 days before with the hope that it would be enough time to get my PR card. I know that to be back in Canada without the PR card by airplane I have to get a Permanente Resident Travel Document in some office outside Canada. However, for me, this will be a huge headache. And the worse situation here is that I can't link my PR card to my CIC account, so I have no idea about what is going on with my PR card. :(

Is it this Number to get information about the PR card?
I am waiting for more than 25 days and I couldn't link to my account. I tried everything since my landing on Sept 12, 2019.
What are the hours that they work?

Thanks
