Default Confirmation of permanent residence (Copr)

Hey everyone,

About 1 month ago I got an email from my home country (England) stating I should pay for my right of residence fee for my Canadian permanent residence application and then to send the receipt and a printout of the email to them. My question is how long does it take for them to send me my confirmation of permanent residence email so I can get the ball rolling and get a job in Canada?

Thanks for the help.

We received notice the same day as the request for police certificates...that was mid August. PR came through early December...it most probably would have been sooner but we had to wait 90 days for the FBI report. We applied for Family Sponsorship...don't know if that makes a difference. I have read that sometimes the fee is requested the same time as photos and passports...which are usually returned within a couple of weeks.

Once you have your documents in your hand, in order to become a Permanent Resident you physically have to come and land in Canada (at an airport or land border, usually). Being issued with COPR documents means you have been approved to become a Permanent Resident and issued with the necessary paperwork to travel to Canada to complete the process. You are not a Permanent Resident until you have completed this last step.
