US Permanent Residence > Permanent Residence > PR Card
Permanent resident cards (or “Maple Leaf Cards”) are given to people who have completed the Canadian immigration process and have obtained permanent residence status but are not Canadian citizens.
Cards are mailed to new permanent residents as part of the landing process.
Permanent resident cards are also available for people who are already permanent residents upon application according to year of landing.
Each person applying for permanent residence will require a card, which is usually valid for five years.
