Hi all. I landed with my wife on March 8, 2020 and haven’t even got SIN number yet or the PR card. I was planning on going back to India on March 27, 2020 but due to shut down in India, I am stuck in Toronto. I wanted to ask if I go back to India without SIN, will it be a problem ?

Not a problem. You only need a SIN number for work. When you open a bank account some banks may ask for it, too, but some are happy to wait until you get one.

So, yes - you can go home without SIN.

Starbucks >>>> timmies
thankfully we have starbucks here too
the only reason i can think of timmies popularity is its cheaper ...or just supporting local
But their French Vanilla and donuts are good.

New PR's who are having trouble with basic things like phone sim and bank account - Play your 'Damsel in Distress' Card. Look Vulnerable. Look Weary. Look Sad. - See how the response changes. Make a genuine plea/request.

KEEP YOUR EGO ASIDE! Just request honestly and someone or another will help you. Reach out to people on social media for tips...

I used the UCI and family name, but still getting the same error
Linking of the PR card application is like a LUCKY DRAW.

There is no logic
There is no fixed timeline
There is no guarantee - but it does get linked after 35-40 days as per TRENDS.

Try after a gap of 10 days each week - after 35-40 days only it gets activated/tracked by their internal server it seems.

All of us should work for CIA now - we analyze so much! (we just use hypothesis!- and they work)

I got it linked the 3 rd day landed. Just enter the informaiton right as per the COPR. I linked both mine and my wife in the first attempt.

It can be as per the information given in passport also. the information in the PR card application is entered by the Border officer. he may choose to enter info as per COPR or passport. For eg. My birthplace info was entered as per COPR which did not have the state name whereas my wife's was entered as per passport. Even the space between the state name and birthplace name matter.

Yes I wanted to say it's not miraculous. The information are being entered by the CBSA officer when you are landed. So, if you tweak around the information it will get linked. Now the problem is when the cards get approved. I'm 47 days since landed.

Sometimes the linking will just NOT work if there is a data entry error during landing. That is what happened in my case. I tried ALL permutations and combinations of upcase, downcase, info on copr, info on passport, etc. for nearly a month. Then I started raising webform requests and figured out that my date of becoming pr was incorrectly entered in the system. They provided me that incorrect date to use for the linking purpose and it worked ! They also assured me that error has been noted and it will be fixed. By the way, status for my PR card is still "Submitted". I landed early March 2020.

I asked IRCC’s official account on Twitter about whether they are still producing PR cards and got the following reply:
“The impacts of COVID 19 affect our operations and our ability to respond to and process applications. You can find information about processing changes and their implications for IRCC clients on the IRCC website: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/coronavirus-covid19/questions-visit-work-student.html”
This link does not work and even after checking the ircc website, there are no clues about how much time it would take to get the PR card.
It though states about delays regarding processing due to COVID-19 and PR card processing times currently shows 13 days and last updated March 8th 2020

Shows 13 days still but up top has a disclaimer “Due to disruptions caused by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), processing times are no longer accurate. We’re working to process applications as quickly as possible”
