Hello,

1) Is it LEGAL to stay in canada if the PR card has expired?
2) Can we LEGALLY work in canada even if the PR card has been expired?
3) What happens if a cop catches you for a speeding and asks for PR card and sees that it has expired?is this a problem?Whenever we apply for anything(like a job) that requires us to show PR card and if it has expired will it be a problem?
4) Even if the PR card has expired, can we legally stay for 2 years and then apply PR card renewal and get it renewed?when applying for PR reneal even if the immigration people come to know I had overstayed my PR time in order to get the 2 years will it be an issue?
5) is it true that once you are inside canada and your PR has expired, you CANNNOT be LEGALLY asked to leave?You can continue to stay for 2 years and renew the PR

Those who know answers to these questions, please respond. Lot of them are looking for answers to these questions

Thanks

1.  Yes
2.  Yes.
3.  They won't ask, and employer will probably only ask for a valid SIN.
4.  Yes, CIC only looks back 5 years from the date you apply .
5.  No, if you are investigated by CBSA and it is determined that you didn't meet the residency requirements, then they will report you.

Under what circumstances would one be investigated by CBSA while staying within Canada?

The do inland investigations, based on tips, raids on business that they think may have "illegals" , police information and it is possible to just "stumble" on someone.  It is not usual for Investigations to get a phone call from Police to check on someone status.  They also go through the court records of charges daily.

You can always apply for a PR travel document outside Canada when you re-enter
