Once your PR application is approved, you will receive an email with regards to IRCC Permanent Residence Confirmation Portal.
It might contain a doc that looks something like this:
At this point, first take a deep breath and happily scream at the top of your voice. A little bit of dancing is recommended. Congratulations you are just one step away from getting your Confirmation of Permanent Residence.
The PR Confirmation Portal is used by IRCC for the following:
- Confirm that you are inside Canada
- Confirm your current address
- Get your picture for your PR card
Upon receiving your confirmation portal email, follow the instructions in the email regarding the information to be sent to IRCC. You need to respond to that email with the following:
- Email address you want to use for the confirmation process
- If you have spouse/dependents, will you be acting on their behalf or not.
- Your personal details (Name, UCI, Email, Original Entry Date, Date of last entry, location of last entry)
Here is a sample response to this email for a single applicant.
