Research beyond the permanent resident

A permanent resident (PR) is a citizen of another country who has been given permanent resident status by immigrating to Canada. A permanent resident is not a Canadian citizen.

A person in Canada who is in Canada temporarily, such as a student, or foreign worker, or visitor is not a permanent resident.

Refugee claimants may become permanent residents after the Immigration and Refugee Board approves their claim. Then, they must apply for and get permanent resident status.

As a permanent resident, you will need a PR card to show that you have permanent resident status in Canada. If you travel outside Canada, you will need to show your card and your passport when you come back on a commercial vehicle, like an airplane, boat, train or bus. Otherwise, you need to apply for a permanent resident travel document before returning to Canada by a commercial vehicle.

As a permanent resident, you have the right to:

  • receive most social benefits that Canadian citizens receive, such as health care coverage
  • live, work or study anywhere in Canada
  • apply for Canadian citizenship after a period of time
  • protection under Canadian law and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms
