At Sultan Lawyers in Toronto, our knowledgeable team of immigration lawyers regularly advise foreign nationals from all over the world on how to apply for permanent residency through various streams including Express Entry and Spousal Sponsorships.
We provide legal guidance and support for permanent residents that need to renew or replace their expired, lost, or stolen permanent resident cards (“PR card”). Depending on your circumstances, the steps to receive a new PR card can vary and our knowledgeable team can guide you through the process.
Your PR card is your official proof that you are a permanent resident of Canada.
You must have a valid PR card to return to Canada by plane, train, bus, or boat. Without one, you may not be able to board.
While it is highly recommended that permanent residents bring their PR card any time they travel, there is other documentation that one can use to enter the country by private vehicle. Private vehicles include, but are not limited to, a car, truck, motorcycle, or recreational vehicle that one owns, borrows, or rents.
You should plan to apply to renew your PR card within six (6) months of its expiry. This is to ensure that you receive a new one prior to the expiry of your current PR card, as well as to account for estimated processing times provided by the IRCC.
While it is important to ensure that your PR card remains valid, you do not lose your permanent resident status if your card expires.
The Toronto immigration lawyers at Sultan Lawyers regularly advise foreign nationals through the permanent resident card renewal process. Whether this includes general advice regarding the process, feedback on how to plan matters from a timing perspective, or how to maintain permanent residency with significant international travel, we are here to assist. Contact us online or at 416-214-5111 for a consultation.
