PR card renewal
It does not mean you are no longer a permanent resident because your Permanent Resident card has expired. You will, however, have to apply for a new card. You must supply details about all of your time spent outside of Canada when applying for a Permanent Resident Card. All clients record this information to guarantee a seamless renewal procedure. If you decide to seek Canadian citizenship, you’ll need this information to prove your residency.
You have up to six months before your Permanent Resident card expires to apply for renewal. We urge that you apply as soon as you are eligible because card renewal applications can take months to process.
