if i haven't got that completely wrong and very generally speaking: once you've landed as a pr you're out of the immigration office of chc london's jurisdiction.
there is one single cic office who handles the pr-card business: cpc sydney, nova scotia, canada.
btw, (and sorry if i repeat myself) assuming that you have a visa waiver passport (and therefore don't necessarily need the pr card for the journey): have you considered to apply for the pr-card once you move here for good?
if you tell the immigration officer at landing that you haven't a definitive address in canada yet you'll get a form to send them once you have it. and just from the top of my head (no time to do a thorough research today, sorry. you might want to read the official guide
) up to 180 days from your landing there isn't a fee involved in that. after that it costs.
hope i didn't confuse you any further with that.
