You are very welcome.

Thank you for this additional information. It sounds like your case is straightforward since you have been living in Canada most of the time in the past 5 years.

I will be typing a longer reply now to explain how apply for a new PR card. Your patience is appreciated.

To apply to get a new PR card, you need to complete an application form which has a helpful document checklist which tells you what to include in your application which you need to follow carefully. The application form is mailed or couriered to the Case Processing Centre in Sydney, Nova Scotia for processing.

You can pay the fees online and the current processing time is 71 days for renewals. You can ask for expedited service if you urgently need to leave Canada.

Here is the link to Canada Immigration's webpage which has the forms and instructions on how to apply.

Hope this answers your question.
