If it is lost, you will have to inform immigration that is it lost and apply for a new one. As you apply for a new one, you will have to fill out your address history for the past 5 years. If you meet the residency requirements of 730 days in Canada in the past 5 years or if you are a PR for less than 5 years that you can still have 730 days in Canada before your first 5 years have passed, you will get a new PR card valid for another 5 years.

Hi @Leon!!
I am facing exact same situation as mentioned in the first query.
In my case, I am not in compliance with my RO. The card is expiring next year and I need to travel outside Canada as well. If I inform IRCC that I have lost my PR card then would they issue me a PR card with the expiry date as per the original card or will they issue a 5 year card from the date of application?

Regards.

I don't know exactly the answer. But regardless of the expiry date of the replacement PR card. CBSA can still check your RO when you entered back into Canada.
(even if you cross the land border from US without a PR card, they can still check your RO)

So basically you're saying that you'd like to pretend you lost your card in order to game the system and get a PR card renewal in as 'lost', and on the hope that IRCC won't, ummm, check your RO compliance now?

There's a line from Spinal Tap that would seem to apply - it's a fine line indeed.

The current card was supposed to expire next year and I want to ask them for a replacement card. Whether CBSA would issue the replacement card with the new expiry date or old expiry date is my question?
