Canadian Permanent Resident and Citizenship

Canadian Permanent Resident and Citizenship

In order for a person to achieve their Canadian Permanent Resident status they must receive their Canadian permanent Resident Card. The Permanent Resident card is a small, secure plastic card containing personal information on the cardholder. The personal information includes height, eye colour and gender, laser-engraved photograph and signature. Other personal data are encoded on the card as well and can only be accessed by authorized Canadian Immigration officials. It also confirms the cardholder’s status as a Permanent Resident of Canada.

Canadian Permanent Residents who plan on exiting Canada will be required to show their Permanent Resident card at the time of re-entry to confirm their Permanent Resident status before boarding. If an individual is not in possession of the Permanent Resident card they will have to apply for a Temporary Travel Document from the closest Canadian Immigration Visa Office to be able to travel to Canada on a commercial carrier. The Canadian Permanent Resident renewed card can now be obtained via mail. The present processing time for new permanent residents is 47 business days. The processing time for present permanent residents is 70 days as of 13th July 2012.
