    Cancelling a PR card renewal application if Citizenship is granted first

    Hello folks, My wife has both a PR card renewal application and Citizenship application in the works. There is a decent chance that her citizenship application will be done first before her PR card renewal application. If that happens, what happens to your PR card application? Does IRCC get...

    PR card renewal application, Q21

    Hello folks, For the PR card renewal application, on Q21 you need to list all your travels. They only give you space for 6 travels and mention to use another page if you have more travels.

    Correspondence with IRCC

    Q14a - List NEXUS card as travel doc?

    For Citizenship Application question 14c. I'm going to guess that the answer is yes, since when crossing by land, a NEXUS card by itself is enough on its own. Just wanted to get other people's opinions. If I do list the NEXUS card, do you think I need an explanation letter that it is a NEXUS...

    My wife is a new immigrant to Ontario. She applied for OHIP about 2 months ago. She got a paper saying she will be eligible for OHIP on January 14th and a card will be mailed to her.

    What address does the PR card get mailed to (for a newly landed immigrant)?

    Does it automatically default to the sponsor's address? Or do you have to provide a Canadian address when you land? Is it better to update eCAS before landing with the Canadian address so that it is in the system?
