Default Re-entering Canada without PR card

I just got my permanent residence (yay!!!) and I need to go back to England for two weeks in October and it may be before I receive my PR card. I contacted immigration and they said it would be fine as I have an English passport so won't need a visa and I will also have my confirmation of permanent residency document. I just wanted to check that this is correct as I don't want to risk not being let back into the country.

Thank you.

Didn't we just have this thread? Technically you're supposed to go to the Canadian High Commission and apply for a one-time entry visa. But as you don't require a visa to visit then you can usually get away without getting one. However the Canadian travel regs require you to have the relevant legal documentation and the person who checks that is the person at check-in and/or the gate so it depends on what they think (i.e. how much of a jobsworth they are).

Once you get to Canada it's not a big deal as CBSA can look you up.

I did this April last year when renewing my PR card, old one had expired, new one hadn't arrived. No problem at immigration but you do get diverted to the side room in the airport where they can interview you to find out the details, so allow an extra half hour or so if you're being picked up.
