Are all permanent residence candidates getting an e-portal for their landing in Canada?

Posted by in CIC News, on December 7, 2020

Canada will from now on confirm the permanent resident status for an applicant without in-person interviews through a new portal, for most cases. This new electronic process will expedite the landing process for new permanent residents.

This new measure has been implemented as part of a coronavirus measure. Canada’s immigration minister, Marco Mendicino, has said the new process has to a great extent reduced the time it takes to land new permanent residents.

The new portal will allow most of the new permanent residents to share their personal information with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Also, the new permanent residents can inform that they are in Canada, submit their photos, confirm their address, and provide all such information required to make their PR card, and get the proof of their permanent resident status.

This portal will not be available for checking the application’s status, as it is separate from the IRCC secure account where applicants submit and update their information.

Each applicant to access this portal must have their own profile and the family members will also need their own username and password. However, the representatives will not be able to access the portal on behalf of a user.

IRCC issued invitations for applicants to test the system in October. The portal was developed by Deloitte, a multinational professional services company with headquarters in Canada.

How does this portal work

Once your immigration/PR application has been approved, IRCC will send you an invitation in order to confirm if or not you want to use the portal, on the applicant’s email address and all email addresses for each person on the application.

IRCC will itself create an account for you, as you will not be able to do it yourself.

Once the IRCC receives the applicant’s response to their invitation, they will send another email with a link to the portal and instructions on how to sign in with your username and temporary password.

Afterwards you can sign in and create your password, confirm you are in Canada, update your postal address and upload your photo.

IRCC then will review and accept the photo, which can be checked on the portal to see if they’ve accepted it. Once they accept the photo, you should get your PR card within one week. They will send it to the mailing address in Canada that you provided in the portal.

Photos must meet IRCC requirements. They may be returned if they are too dark, if facial features are not visible or there is glare on the photo.

IRCC will contact you if there are any problems with the PR card process.
