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. Most PR cards are valid for five years, but some are only valid for one year.
If your Permanent Resident Card (PR Card) is expired or will expire in less than six months, you can apply to renew your PR card. The new card will have a new expiration date.
To be eligible for a PR card, you need to:
- be a Permanent Resident
- be physically present in Canada
- not have been asked by the Government of Canada to leave the country
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.
