The Embassy in Ottawa can only inform you if a decision is positive or negative. No decision documents can be sent by email. The full decision document can be received in two ways:
Anyone with a residence permit for over 90 days in Sweden needs a residence permit card. In order to receive the card you have to submit biometrics.
Canadian citizens (and citizens of other visa free countries): Please submit biometrics in Sweden, after arrival. Make an appointment at your closest Migration Agency office. Some offices have long waiting times, so it's recommended to book a time well in advance.
Citizens of countries that require an entry visa: Since you need your residence permit card to enter Sweden, you have to submit biometrics at the Embassy of Sweden in Ottawa. Please contact the Embassy by e-mail to book an appointment. When visiting the Embassy, please bring your passport for ID purposes. The card will arrive at the Embassy in 2 to 4 weeks, and can either be picked up in person or sent to your home address (a fee applies).
The Embassy of Sweden in Ottawa is the only Swedish passport authority in Canada. Applications cannot be submitted at the honorary consulates in Canada.
