    It can be the most exciting time for anyone looking for a brighter future in this great country. You must be a permanent resident of Canada prior to making an application.

In order to qualify, you must have spent at least 1095 days in Canada within the five-year period prior to applying. Contact Score Immigration and Fingerprints Services in Greater Vancouver to help you with the application process.
  • What Other Canadian Citizenship Requirements Must I Meet?
    Filing of Canadian taxes (if you are required to) for at least 3 years within the last 5-year period and proving your ability to speak English or French (if you are between 18 and 54 years old when you apply) will not be inadmissible.
  • Do I Need To Take a Citizenship Knowledge Test?
    Yes. If you are between the ages of 18 –54 years on the day you sign your application, you will be required to write a multiple-choice knowledge test.

Permanent Resident Card

A valid permanent resident card is almost always a necessity when travelling outside of Canada as proof you are a permanent resident of Canada. To be eligible for a permanent resident card renewal, you must already be a permanent resident of Canada. In addition, your application must be submitted in Canada. There is also a requirement that you have spent a minimum of 2 years within Canada in the last five-year period prior to the date of applying. A PR card is valid for a 5 year period once issued.

Re-Entry Upon Leaving Canada

In limited circumstances, it is possible to have an expired card and still return to Canada. Returning to a land border in a private vehicle can allow you to produce alternative documents to show proof of permanent resident status. Some examples of private vehicles include a car, truck, motorcycle, or vehicle that you own, borrow, or rent.

 

If you intend to leave Canada by a commercial vehicle, airplane bus, train or boat, you cannot return to Canada without a valid permanent resident card. In these circumstances, you must apply for a permanent resident travel document overseas to return.
