If you are a permanent resident of Canada, or a student applying for a study visa for Canada, then sooner or later, you will need to apply for your resident card. This document proves that you are a permanent legal resident living in the country.
Every year, the Government of Canada updates its policies and procedures on how they issue new resident cards. If your current card has reached its expiry date, it’s time to apply for a new one.
Check your current documents with your family members who are also Canadian citizens before renewing your permanent resident card.
These persons might be able to provide you with information on how to renew your card, such as the name and contact information of the designated person.
You might also wish to see whether any of your family members can apply for their card. If you do this, you might find it simpler to apply for a residence card jointly.
Make sure to ask your family members to include all of your documentation, including your files with the Canadian government, when making copies of your permanent residence card. You may also consider hiring a third-party screening and management service, like Canada’s Services.
If you have been a permanent resident of Canada for a long time, you are eligible to apply for a renewal of your existing permanent resident card.
However, if you have lived in the country for less than ten years, you must apply for a new card. You must pay the fees again if you have already applied for your current permanent resident card.
You should apply for your card if you have been a permanent resident for at least one year. Note that if you have applied for an Express Card before, you will have to wait for at least one year before applying for an Express Card again. If you have applied for a Gold or Silver Card, you will have to wait three years before applying again.
It would help if you first researched the current waiting time for any new resident card applications that may be released in the coming months. This will help you to plan when to apply for your card.
Next, you should go to the Government of Canada’s website (www.canada.ca) to renew your permanent resident card. This information is available on the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website. You can also follow the instructions provided on the site to complete your application online.
