What is a Canadian Permanent Resident Card (PR)
The Canadian Permanent Resident Card is wallet sized card that can be shown as official proof that you are Permanent Resident of Canada. The card contains information such as eye colour, height, gender, date of birth etc. The card also contains your picture that is engraved with your signature. If you travelled outside of Canada and like to re-enter Canada through plane, bus, train or boat you are required to show your PR card before boarding. If you don’t have a PR card or have lost your PR card and are outside of Canada you need to apply for a Temporary Travel Document from the nearest Canadian immigration visa office to be able to travel or re-enter into Canada.
