According to section 54(1) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations, whether you apply for an initial or subsequent PR card, the card will be valid for 5 years in the majority of circumstances.
It’s also worth noting that even if your PR card has expired, you’re still a permanent resident. You lose your permanent resident status under section 46 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act if any of the following events occur:
As a result, even if your PR card has expired, you remain a permanent resident of Canada if neither of the above applies to you. Many people are unaware that having a valid PR card is not essential when applying for Canadian citizenship, assuming you complete all of the requirements.
If travelling by commercial conveyance, such as an aircraft, train, bus, or boat, you must have a valid PR card to re-enter Canada. If your PR card expires while you are outside of Canada, you will need to apply for a Permanent Resident Travel Document, which can only be done from outside of the country.
My overall experience with Winny is excellent. The team is very helpful and provides their clients accurate information which can help them to achieve their goals.
After lot of research, finally We decided to start our PR process for Canada with the help of Winny Immigration. Firstly, Ms Suhani from Surat branch made us understand the entire PR process. Secondly, We were assigned a Case Officer Ms. Norin Shaikh from Ahmedabad head office within a week. She guided us right from the start of the process. She helped us prepare the entire documentation. Ultimately within 3 months, We were able to submit our Express Entry profile in September 2021. It has been a very smooth experience till now with Winny Immigration.
This is one of the best Immigration consultant that I have ever seen. They help me to find best way about Immigration, especially Ms. Falguni Rayththa who is a experienced case officer and she did all process with great responsibility as well.
Thank you WINNY team
I have been tutored for IELTS under the guidance of Kalgi ma’am at Winny Coaching. She has been very patient throughout in both online and offline classes and the mock tests and practice conversation also helped a great deal to ace our real tests.
I highly recommend Winny Immigrations along with my tutor Kalgi Trivedi.
