If your PR card is lost, stolen, or destroyed while you are in Canada, contact Citizenship and Immigration Canada to report what happened. To replace your PR Card, you need to apply for a replacement PR Card. You can apply to replace your PR card if you are in Canada. If you lose your Permanent Resident card while traveling or living outside Canada, you should apply for a Permanent Resident Travel Document (PRTD) to return to Canada.
The Permanent Resident Card (PR Card) is an identification and travel document for Permanent Residents of Canada. It is one of the methods by which Canadian Permanent Residents can prove their status. A Permanent Resident (PR) Card and a Permanent Resident Travel Document (PRTD) are the only documents that allow Permanent Residents to return to Canada by commercial carriers.
To be eligible to replace a lost PR card, you need to:
- be a Permanent Resident of Canada
- not have been asked by the Government of Canada to leave the country
- be physically present in Canada. To keep your Permanent Resident status, you must have been in Canada for at least seven hundred thirty days during the last five years. These seven hundred thirty days don't need to be continuous. Some of your time abroad may count towards the seven hundred thirty days.
