My wife got her SIN yesterday in mail, but it's a mess. The SIN came with her father's name.. LOL...
We were pretty sure that we filled the online form correctly, even the supporting docs are in her name.
We are trying to contact the call centre since morning but no luck. Anyone else faced similar kind of issue? Need assistance please.

A CBC article was posted yesterday "B.C. couple calls for automatic extensions after permanent resident card renewal goes awry"

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/b-c-couple-calls-for-automatic-extensions-after-permanent-resident-card-renewal-goes-awry-1.5640723

"In an email dated June 10, 2020, government staff say Feb. 10 is the back date for processing, meaning any applications received after that date would not yet appear in the system.

Newton alleges he was recently told the date had been moved up — but only to Feb. 20."


I hope it's not the same for people waiting for their first card :eek:

"Desperate for help, the couple emailed several government representatives including Vancouver Quadra MP Joyce Murray, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Marco Mendicino and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

In each case, government staff were unable to expedite the couple's application, often redirecting them to the IRCC website."


As expected...

Just wait for the Service Canada centres to open, it will be easier to sort it out in person.

To all, this is what @bajwaboy said on another thread:

"Landed 1 june Niagara falls ON
Inland - sent letter and photos on 6 june
Application approved - 2nd july
GC key showing - we mailed your PR card .it may take 6 weeks to arrive."

I can't believe you landed on June 1st and got your PR card already while we all landed in March and still have nothing in sight.
It is correct only. Those who sent photo and CoPR to small offices like Kitchener, London, Niagara are getting their pr cards within a week. Ottawa, Montreal, Edmonton, Sydney like large offices are delaying their cards.

I agree that this is what seems to be the issue but IRCC should then communicate a time estimate by CPC and not one that is global to all the offices. People who are waiting are then flooding the Webform or the call centers to have a proper estimate which no one has.

If you read the entire article you see where she has been a permanent resident for 30 years who didnt want to apply for citizenship. She applied for the renewal in March 2020 when Covid began.

I am not bashing her, but If you have a sick relative living overseas I dont see why you wouldn't have ensured documents required to travel are always up to date.

Our first time applications are slightly different and I hope we can get the cards sooner rather than later.

I mean this with all due respect, but obviously those of us who waiting for our first PR cards should be the priority here.

She's Japanese. Japan unfortunately doesn't allow dual citizenship once you're over age 22. You have to officially choose 1. If she naturalized as a Canadian citizen, she'd have to give up her Japanese citizenship. That's a hard ask..for anyone. I totally understand why she's remained a PR

@Ctv92 , I'm not saying she should have done her citizenship. I'm just saying that with a sick relative its normally best to ensure travel travels are always in order. You can renew within 6 months of the expiry of the PR card. Anyway, I wish her the best and hope she gets to travel to see her father soon.

Hi everyone ,

Did anyone received login details for CRA after you received your new SIN # , if so how long it takes ?
You have to register new SIN, and create new credentials. Immediately you can access your account but with limited access. You will get full access once you enter Security key that will receive in post in 10 business days. If urgent, call customer care select the option to get Security key in email. Once Agent verify some basic info, he will send the key in email and you can use it. Once you provide it in your CRA account, you will have full access.
