Permanent Residency

A permanent resident is someone who has been given permanent resident status by immigrating to Canada but is not a Canadian citizen. Permanent residents are citizens of other countries.

Your Permanent Resident card can be used to show that you have permanent resident status in Canada. If you travel outside Canada, you will need to show your card and your passport when you come back on a commercial vehicle, like an airplane, boat, train or bus.

Permanent Residents travelling outside Canada who do not have a valid Permanent Resident card or who are not carrying it need to apply for a permanent resident travel document before returning to Canada by a commercial vehicle. You can only renew your permanent resident card in Canada.

Most Permanent Resident cards are valid for five years.

As a permanent resident, you have the right to:

– Get most social benefits that Canadian citizens receive, including health care coverage.

– live, work or study anywhere in Canada.

– Apply for Canadian citizenship,

– Protection under Canadian law and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

You must pay taxes and respect all the Canadian laws at the federal, provincial and municipal levels.
