After Landing, COPR expires soon

I have successfully landed in Canada as a PR. Now, post-landing, my COPR document expires within a short time, but the PR card will take 6-8 weeks to arrive. Is this a problem? Should I do something about it, like asking to extend COPR?

Once you land it doesn’t matter if the COPR or PR visa (single entry) expires, you cannot use it for re-entry anyway. Either you have to wait for PR card (which can take anywhere from few weeks to a year to arrive), or apply for a PRTD (Travel Document), which is highly recommended. You can only apply for PRTD from outside Canada.
