Default Approximate time from PPR to COPR?

Just wondering what experience people have time wise from PPR to COPR

I received PPR early Nov, but the email request was missed whilst we were in Canada of all places
As our immigration agent (in Victoria) claimed not to have received the emailed request from CIC they requested an extension which CIC London granted by another 30 days. We sent the requested photocopies, form, photos etc. off almost right away (Early Dec) by DHL. Proof of delivery in London a couple of days later.

It's been over a month now. In general terms what sort of wait are looking at?

Have a look at my timeline - we received PPR 26 June, sent the papers mid-July, and had COPR about 4ish weeks later.

For me,
PPR -> 04/09/12
COPR -> 27/09/12

Just over 3 weeks.

Wow! Medicals run out so near to issue of COPR document? That's quite a delay between medicals and PPR/COPR


Cheers for the replies so far.

Seems a bit random on timing, but that's nothing new with this process.

Medicals are only valid for one year, so the expiry of your COPR is one year from the date that you had your medical done. We had our medicals done 13 Dec 2011, and then yo ucan see the timeline from there... the expiry date written on our COPR was 12 Dec 2012. We were cutting it a bit tight landing on the 8th, but luckily no weather-related or other issues!

I've noticed that you are under a common law sponsorship application. Maybe with that process you do medicals at the time of application? With us (FSW) we don't do medicals until near the end of the process and not until requested to do so by (in our case) CIC London.

Glad you guys made it all the same

Crappy doctor that sent our forms to the wrong department. COPRA actually arrived about an hour after I posted via registered mail

Yes, that part is true - sorry about that! I forgot to double check which route this thread was referring to! My mistake

PNP Ontario: we did our meds in Nov 2011 and didn't get PPR until September 2012. Most of this delay prob due to the Buffalo office closing. We got our COPR within 2 weeks after sending all forms to Detroit.

My friends send it all to London under the FSW2 and without it being Christmas and New Years it took 6 - 7 weeks for their COPRs to come back.

Aaaw... you're being so nice about it I should have been clearer when I first posted and mentioned FSW. I like nice friendly threads like this
