Hi chella99,

Thank you for your detailed reply. I am not an expert but i think that statement "Your PR card has been approved" means they have accepted our circumstances for not complying residence obligation. In my case, I authorized my lawyer to communicate with IRCC through their email and mailing address by submitting use of representative form to IRCC, therefore, IRCC will not send my PR card to my lawyer address and they will book an appointment for me in to pick them in person. Due to COVID19 pandemic, IRCC local offices are working with limited capacity and our appointment for card picking may be in waiting que. Let's wait and see.

Please keep on posted progress in your case as i will also do periodically.

Regards,
Yes "Your PR card has been approved" does indeed mean there has been a decision. However, in non-pademic times, the invitation to pick up the PR Card is usually an attempt to confirm that the applicant is indeed in Canada (as you are supposed to be in Canada when you renew your PR Card).

Dear Moon,

I did not follow up this post for sometime and thanks for your response and the encouraging words. I do hope so, as you have expressed, in my case..

But considering that my application was lodged on May 1, 2019, don't you think, even factoring for the unique case and the Covid 19 situation, it has been exceptionally long for IRCC to respond to me ??

I am still awaiting to hear from IRCC on the next course of action and have not so far received any mail or email, after the aforesaid one and that too, was only in response to my webform enquiry and not the one on its own from IRCC. The response was dated Sep 2, 2020 and even if one considers from that date, the time taken is too much and hence, I am left wondering as to what to expect and when to expect from IRCC ! Hope for the best !!

Also, I would like to have views from all whether I can request IRCC to send the renewed card by post instead of calling for a pickup, considering the extremely tense Covid 19 situation.

Views from you and others will be highly appreciated.

Thanks.
