Due to the impacts of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), we
  • can’t process applications normally
  • can’t provide accurate processing times
For guidance on your situation, find out how you’re affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Question /
when I originally sent my application, it said processing time was 66 days, after 66 days it shows 97 days
I can't find my application in the processing link
is it now 97 days ? because surly it will keep changing every week or what ever? If that makes sense
should it still not be 66 days when I sent it ?

txs again all

Unfortunately, it is what it is, patience is needed. PR cards aren't something that are generally urgently required so RCIC are putting their resources into processing applications for family unification, travel consent, work permits, permanent residency applications etc., rather than PR card renewals.

Is there a reason for any urgency to receive your PR card - i.e. are you planning a trip? If you have travel arrangements made for within the next 3 months, you could request urgent processing - https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration...ce/urgent.html

When you are checking the status, do ensure that you put down your country of birth (i.e. England / Wales / Ireland / Scotland etc.,) and not a generic UK / Britain, as it won't find the application unless you do.
Hang in there!

Ah, maybe this is where I have been getting mixed up. We applied for PR, but I have found no way to check up other than 'PR card', so I assumed this was the same thing.
We understand it's a long process and the need for patience, but initially having an estimated date has teased our expectations! Is there nowhere to find any estimates or updates then?

A PR card is just proof of PR status, what people use to come in and out of Canada etc (and what you'll get once PR has actually been granted).

Which program did you apply for PR under? You may be able to check (i.e. if you did apply under CEC then you can see the exact date they're processing them on), but only certain PR apps are being processed at the moment, so it will depend on how you applied.

Ah! PR applications can be checked online.. either on eCAS or MyCIC Remember the bit about 'country' of birth - not generic UK. If you need any help signing in our wiki has some info (it's the same for all types of applicants, ignore the 'spousal'): https://britishexpats.com/wiki/Spous...All_About_eCAS and https://britishexpats.com/wiki/Spous...ll_about_MyCIC

https://services3.cic.gc.ca/ecas/security.do?lang=en
https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration...n/account.html

If you need any help or have any questions about Immigration etc., feel free to start a new thread ..

Thank you! We applied as federal skilled worker (EE).

Ah, ok, in which case likely to be quite a while longer, FSW apps aren't being prioritised so there's a backlog. Even CEC apps which have been prioritised are behind the usual processing time of 6 months - currently apps that were submitted in early October are being finalised, so nearly 10 months processing time for them.
