Thanks again!
Yeah no worries. I'm in a similar boat myself atm. Brazalot say a lot of things as well. The email I had from them recently advised that people could have up to 3 years to move to Canada after landing. Not technically inaccurate but could lead to serious problems if you even wanted to leave Canada for a 1 week vacation in the proceeding 2 years afterwards.

Thought it was 2 years to move and then you had to remain there for 3 years to keep the PR status?

The other way around. You need 2 years out of 5 to retain status. 3 years for citizenship.

A COPR is valid for one year from the medical exam, that's the time that you first have to go to Canada in.

After you've done that, you need to be in Canada for two years in every five year period (or accompanying a Canadian spouse or parent abroad).

Yeah, Brazalot are telling people they can land and then just plan to move over 3 years later which is just asking for trouble really IMHO.

Thanks for that. Our medical was done not too long ago and was recently passed by IRCC. Provided no other setbacks, we should be aiming to do soft landing around November period for a nice bout of cold weather.

I think that is basing people flying over as soon as PR is confirmed and not overlapping anything. I think they should be explaining to people the exact time frames not basing everything they say on best case scenarios.

You can land on the last date of your COPR expiry if you want to. That doesn't make any difference as long as you don't try to use it after that date. The clock on your PR only starts ticking once your PR is actually signed, sealed and confirmed at the PoE.

Though personally I wouldn't risk leaving it until the last minute. You only need to fall ill or have a family emergency; issues getting to the airport - or a flight to be delayed - or as happened a few years ago when the Iceland volcanic issue arose - all flights to be cancelled, and then you are up a proverbial creek without a paddle and have wasted potentially years and a lot of money - once that date has passed there is no renewal or re-issue possible - it's a 1 shot deal!

I would always recommend giving yourself a week or more leeway, for those unforeseen circumstances!

Absolutely, neither would I. I was just speaking hypothetically tbh. In our case we did it a few weeks before the expiry date.
