Some people are being “landed” in Canada using the PR Confirmation Portal.
See here: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/pr-confirmation-portal.html
How its supposed to go:
- Applicant receives a ClientPortal email saying to email back their name, UCI, email address and last place and date of entry.
- Then IRCC creates an account/username and replies back with the login info.
- Applicant log-in and submits a selfie (they literally say selfie) and mailing address and they get a temporary COPR letter in PDF form. This is the typical landing paper but with an e-signature from the visa officer.
- They await for the PR Card in the mail in 2-3 weeks.
The applicant and each dependent have to provide their own INDIVIDUAL email address and reply to the IRCC Client Portal email address. 1 email per person. No authorized representative email addresses!
No more professional pics…just selfies!
Not all are being landed this way. Some are just getting a letter saying they are now PR and to mail 2 photos and the PR approval letter and the local IRCC office will mail the PR card.
