I have a friend who applied before us, and her contact has been by post and she had to send a copy. I wouldn't send anything unless you have received a specific request. Good luck!
OK, that makes sense - we have been corresponding via email too.

Thanks for the reply!

Thanks Jim - the problem is yesterday everytime I clicked on my application it went back to the start. Today it just sends me back to the eligibility - this is when I have signed in using GC Key. There seems no where where it says continue with your application. This is a hair pulling exercise and I might just start the whole thing again.

Finally, as an aside I semi completed the forms online last week, uploaded and saved for further completion this week. Even checked - just to make sure they had been saved, however, this week every time I click my application I just go round in circles and it just seems to want me to apply again. Even though it is counting down the days until application expires.

Anyone else gone through this pain?
At least you are lucky you can go through your online application. I tried doing online after few days their site was down for about 3 weeks. So I sent paper application and the processing time was awfully long. We are talking about CIC here, how efficient you think can they be?

Anyways after you are nominated, it have to get bridging work permit. And you have to apply 3 month BEFORE it expires. If you are applying after expiry, you have to check with CIC if you can continue to work as 'implied status'. Please get a letter from your provincial nominee office. In this letter your provincial nominee program will request CIC to extend the permit. And send the letter along with application.

Yep ... they must use the copies. I think it may have said somewhere! COPR is COPR ... that's what they call it on their letter, so I decided to hook up with their new term

As you include a copy of your passport pages when you apply I wonder if that is all that is necessary now.

Yeah ta for that - everything all sorted and ready to send - just going to hang on a few days - cos I know what will happen when I press 'fire' - the postman (letter carrier) will turn up with COPR and my $500 WP fees will be well spent by the government.

Brilliant news. Finger crossed for you I heard recently of a guy receiving his letter only one week after the decision made status.

A letter only one week after? Oh god that makes me feel sick. We are exactly 11 weeks now and I'm freaking out. Now they won't answer my emails either.

I finally heard from CIC last night - it turns out that my COPR was issued in May, but never turned up. (Paid the RPRF and "Decision Made" way back in March). Now I'm hoping I can get the replacement document in time to land before my medical expires in a couple of weeks.

I am unable to understand why they can't send such an important document via courier or signed-for mail. I'd quite happily pay for it.

Do I need anything else when I go to the border? GTF list I know (Although I have no goods) but photos for PR card etc?
