I applied for Canadian PR as a single applicant through FSW Express Entry and received my CoPR and Travel Document printed on my Passport in January. I am an Indian citizen living in USA currently. I have not yet landed in Canada. I am getting married end of March and I want to include my Spouse to my PR application. I understand that this would mean I would have to return my passport back to IRCC and get my CoPR cancelled and submit additional documents. What I am not sure is when I need to inform IRCC about this change in marital status. Is it better to wait until after I get married to notify them or can I notify them about my upcoming marriage? I will not be able to submit my passport back to IRCC before I get married. Hence, I am not sure which should happen first. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

1. CIC doesn't need to be informed until you are married.
