IRCC released a new update for COPR and PRV holders


On January 5, 2021, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) posted a new update for the holders of expired Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR) and permanent resident visa (PRV). IRCC requested those approved immigrants no longer contact the Immigration Department via the webform or email. IRCC will initiate contact with these candidates once they are approved to come to Canada. Due to international travel restrictions and flight cancellations, many immigrants were unable to enter Canada before their authorization expired. Such a situation sparks heavy criticism from the public, as IRCC is not allowing legit immigrants to complete their immigration.
