You need a PRTD or PR card to return to Canada by air.

The only issue is that sometimes PRTD can take more than 3 weeks to get. Depends on the location. You can also get someone to courier your PR card to you. Any idea why it is taking so longa?

No you don’t lose your PR status. It is actually pretty common scenario. The issue is that some places have a longer wait to get PRTD. You should apply as soon as you arrive and hopefully you get your PR card so someone can send it to you.

Yes your wife can courier the PR card. Use something like fedex with tracking. It is a common thing to do. No need to call anyone about leaving for 3 weeks.

You will be refused boarding by the airline if you do not have a PR card or PRTD. Nothing happens to your PR status.
