Default Initial PR Card via Canada Post

Quick question. We plan a 'soft landing' and want to arrange for the PR card on that trip. We can provide a friends address in Canada, but it is probable that we won't be there long enough to sign for it ourselves (before returning to the UK to finalise for our move).


Can our friends sign for it if we give then some form of written authority for Canada Post?


I would then arrange for them to FEDEX it across to us in the UK?

Ooops - more extensive Google and I have answered my own question!


Canada Post have a 'Letter of Authorisation' I think I can use so my friends can sign on our behalf!

PRCs are sent in the regular mail.

I know they are sent Canada Post, but some people have said that they were delivered as 'signed for' while others seem to not have this - just preparing for the worst case!

I thought IRCC used signed for/courier for people living outside of Canada. Within Canada it is regular mail. I maybe wrong though but mine came through regular mail

PR Cards are not mailed outside of Canada. IRCC explicitly don't do this.

Oh yeah lol silly me.

I'm thinking of the COPR then as that can be couriered outside of Canada but inside it's that express service addressed envelope

My PR card on renewal 2 years ago came regular mail, and the first one way back in 2007 also came regular mail. (By regular mail, I mean no signature needed.)

It could be I am 'morphing' earlier posts regarding registered mail for COPR and confusing this with PR cards in my head!
