Finally we have something desired for a long time. Government allows as of today an in-Canada landing process for applicants in family and economic classes who received their PR visas from visa posts abroad, but are temporary in Canada:

Bye bye flag-poling...

That's great news... no trip to Port Angeles, WA. Downtown Victoria instead which is a lot easier! (All we need now is this PPR!)

I don't have a specific link which lists all CIC offices but the advice given by CIC is as follows:

"Please note that if you are already in Canada and have valid temporary resident status, you now have the option of obtaining your permanent resident status in Canada as opposed to leaving Canada and re-entering at a port of entry. Please contact CIC’s Call Centre at 1-888-242-2100 as soon as possible to arrange an appointment with the nearest Citizenship and Immigration office to your place of residence. (You cannot call this number if you are outside Canada.)"

That's pretty good for us. Should get our passports back from London in the next week and even though the US Border is not that far from North Van we would prefer not to flagpole.

Thank you for the heads up, Andrew. I have added an update to the Wiki article called Trip around the flagpole-Canada.
