Permanent Resident Card

The permanent resident card contains special security features and must often be showed to a Canada Border Services Agency or Citizenship and Immigration Official as proof that an individual may stay and enter Canada as a permanent resident when they are returning from travelling from another country. 

It is important that an individual obtain or check their permanent resident card’s expiry date if they are planning to travel and leave Canada. Most permanent resident cards are valid for a period of five years. If an individual does not plan to leave Canada, theu do not necessarily need a permanent residence card, however, some authorities in Canada may ask for this card as proof of permanent resident status.
