Restoration of your Status in Canada

When a foreign national is in Canada and he/she loses his/her temporary resident status or it expires and he/she has not left, he/she may apply to have the status restored as long as the applicant does so within 90 days of the loss or expiry.


Temporary Resident Permit

A permit that may be granted in exceptional circumstances to a person who does not meet the eligibility and/or the admissibility requirements to enter or remain temporarily in Canada.


Permanent Resident Cards Replacement

The Permanent Resident Card is valid for five years and, although not mandatory, should be renewed, especially if the permanent resident wishes to travel and re-enter Canada.


Permanent Resident Travel Document (PRTD)

Permanent residents outside Canada cannot apply to renew their Permanent Resident Cards; instead they must apply for a Permanent Resident Travel Document (PRTD) and show that they have met the requirements to remain a permanent resident, then apply for a Permanent Resident Card after they return to Canada.
