Wait time for COPR landing @ Service Canada
 
Hello all,

I received my COPR in the post yesterday and am hoping to 'land' ASAP. I live about 5 hours away from the border & know I can land at a CIC office, I called this morning and the gentleman said it takes 'up to 6 weeks' for them to call me to arrange an appointment. Beyond that, he couldn't tell me if I would then have to wait longer for the actual appointment.

Has anyone had any experience with this? Does it actually take 6 weeks for them to arrange an appointment, and then how much longer is it before you can actually go to the office and land???:confused:

My local office is Calgary.

thanks everyone!

The landing is done at an inland CIC office and yes some appointments are taking up to 8 weeks.

2 days. I faxed the local CIC office and explained the circumstances (my son couldn't land until I had landed and his medical was about to run out) and had an appointment the next day.

I waited about a month for a phone call, and then my appointment was the next week. It all went very smoothly.
