Default PR card from UK

Hi Folks,
After for some advice...We 'landed' as a family in October last year ..it was all a bit of a rush as visa about to expire, and returned back to the UK after 48 hours.

The immigration officer gave us some contact numbers to call if we want our PR card sent to our home address in the UK(he assured us that this is not unusual) and we do not need to provide a Canadian address if we do not have one.

The plan is to return back permanently tail end of the summer, so just trying to get things rolling.

The problem now is that I have tried calling the number only to hear the dreaded number not available. Both numbers are toll free numbers so I am presuming that is the reason why!!

However, I cannot seem to find any other number that is not toll free in the 'welcome to Canada' booklet.

I have trawled through the cic website with no joy.

Any advice / comments contact numbers kindly appreciated.

1. PR cards are not delivered outside Canada, only to Canadian addresses.
2. If you don't supply CIC a Canadian address within 6 months of "landing" then you have to reapply for the PR cards in Canada and pay the fee.

You will have to reapply for your PR card when you comeback and then will have to wait 9 months to get them.

Sounds like your Immigration Officer gave you some pretty duff information. It's likely to take you ages to get new ones now! Bad luck..
