Importance of Renewing Your Canadian Permanent Residency Card
A PR card is valid for five years, after which it needs to be renewed. Neglecting to keep your PR card current can lead to complications such as denied travel back to Canada. Remember, an expired card does not mean you have lost your permanent resident status. It simply means that you need to renew your card, if you need to travel abroad.
Overview of the PR Card Renewal Process
Renewing your PR card involves several steps:
  1. Confirm your eligibility for renewal.
  2. Fill out the necessary immigration application accurately.
  3. Prepare and attach the required supporting documents.
  4. Pay the application fee.
  5. Submit your completed application to Immigration Canada
