Citizenship
& PR Card

You are eligible for a Permanent Resident Card only if you have entered Canada through the immigration process and have been granted permanent resident status. If you become a Canadian citizen, you do not need a Permanent Resident Card.
Permanent Resident Cards with a five (5) year validity are issued to those who successfully obtained permanent residence in Canada. PR cards can be renewed every five years if the permanent resident respects the residency requirement.
To be eligible to become a Canadian citizen, you must meet all conditions, including:

– Permanent Resident status
– Time you have lived in Canada
– Income tax filing
– Language skills
– How well you know Canada
– Prohibitions
