Permanent Resident PR Card Renewal Video

Posted in PR Card Renewal Videos

This video is about Permanent Resident Card Renewal. Typically permanent residence status can only be maintained if you are physically present in Canada for 730 days (two years) in the most recent five year period. This video discusses on some other options of renewing your PR Card should you not meet the residency requirements. For additional information on PR Card Renewal, please watch our video below.

Permanent Resident PR Card Renewal

Permanent Resident Card Renewal essentially means that when you become a Permanent Resident, you get a card that’s valid for 5 years. During those 5 years, you have certain responsibilities to Citizenship and Immigration Canada. For example, you should renew it or you must apply for the next step which is citizenship. To renew your PR card, you would have to be inside Canada 730 days out of the 5, which means 2 out of the 5 years you must physically be present in Canada to have a straight forward renewal application.

Sometimes, individuals remain outside of Canada for longer periods of time, because they could not find a job in Canada, family emergencies, studying abroad and many other reasons which made them not meet their residency obligations in Canada. Does that mean they cannot renew their residency? No, what it means is that you can still apply for Permanent Residence Card Renewal with Humanitarian and Compassionate Arguments.

So, what you would have to do is demonstrate to immigration officer why you left Canada and why you still consider Canada your home and when you are planning to come back. Humanitarian and Compassionate arguments is a very subjective topic and it is up to the immigration officer to determine if your reasons are valid for not meeting your residency requirements.

Individuals that do not meet their residency requirements it is highly recommended to consult with an immigration representative, because if you do not provide the correct documentation you could lose your permanent residence. If that happens you have to start from beginning and apply for Permanent Residency all over again.

Also, remember PR card is a card, just like a driver’s license just like a health card, its card it’s issued for you to travel and it does not necessarily mean that your status as permanent residence has expired. You can either apply for Travel Document to enter back into Canada or try to get through the United States or perhaps we can determine other options to get you back inside of Canada, despite your PR card having expired.

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!
