Renew or Replace Your PR Card

Every person who lands in Canada as a permanent resident is given a Permanent Resident Card (formerly a “Maple Leaf” card). The PR Card has changed a little bit in appearance over the years, but it always contains your picture and information about its issuance and expiry.

The primary purpose of your Permanent Resident Card is to prove your permanent resident status in Canada: when returning from travelling abroad, when applying for jobs, and dealing with government agencies in Canada.

You need your PR Card to travel and to work.

Why You Need Your PR Card

What You Cannot Use Your PR Card for

  • Your PR Card cannot be used to prove when you landed in Canada (such as when applying for your OAS). For that, you need your Record of Landing.
  • You cannot run for office.
  • Getting a Canadian Passport – you need to be a citizen to get a Canadian Passport.
  • You cannot apply for jobs that require Canadian citizenship (for security reasons).

What You Can Use Your PR Card for

  • Travelling to Canada on any commercial carrier, such as a plan, cruise ship, train or bus.
  • Proving your status in Canada to an employer.
  • Proving your status in Canada to municipal, provincial and federal government agencies (when applicable).

Common questions

A Permanent Resident Card (or PR Card) is your proof of your status in Canada as a Permanent Resident. It is primarily used to prove your PR status when returning to Canada from a trip but can also be used to prove your status to your employer or to government agencies.

If you have lost your PR Card, you need to replace it. If it was stolen, you need to report the theft to the police immediately. Whether it was lost or stolen, you need to contact Citizenship and Immigration Canada to report the loss.

You need to complete the regular PR Card application but will also need to complete the lost/stolen section of the form in order to get a new card.

If there is a mistake on your Permanent Resident Card you can fix it by applying for a new PR Card. However, you will have to prove that there is a mistake, and if the mistake was made on your Record of Landing as well, you will have to replace that document first.
