Applying for Your Canada PR Card

Your Permanent Resident Card is one of your most important documents. It is your proof that you hold status as a permanent resident, and is essential if you plan to take any trips outside of Canada. Each time you re-enter Canada after a trip outside the country, you must present your valid, unexpired Permanent Resident Card.

The Permanent Resident Card expires every five years. Check the expiry date and apply for a new one well before you plan to travel.

Who Can Apply for a Canadian PR Card?

Applying for a Permanent Resident Card is not the same as applying for permanent resident status. Only individuals who have already been granted permanent resident status are eligible to apply for a Permanent Resident Card.

Typical applicants include individuals seeking to replace their expired Permanent Resident Card and individuals seeking to replace a lost or stolen card. In addition, certain individuals who were granted permanent resident status prior to June 28, 2002 never received a Permanent Resident Card, and may apply for a new card using this application.

Under normal circumstances, permanent residents who obtained status after June 28, 2002 received a Permanent Resident Card as part of the application process. However, applicants who did not receive a card due to CIC error may also be eligible to apply for a Permanent Resident Card on this form.
