Customer: I lived in Canada from December 2006 to January 2020, and I have PR status. I am currently in the UK, where I am caregiver to my 89 year-old mother. My PR card expired while I was outside Canada. I wish to visit Canada for a few weeks; I have downloaded the PRTD application, but it seems to be for a PR who wants to return to live in Canada. I cannot stay there just now, because of my obligations here, but I expect to return to live in Canada in the future. What papers do I need for travel, and how do I get a new PR Card if I am only in Canada for a short time?

Hi there my name is ***** ***** I'm a lawyer in Ontario.  You cannot apply for PR status for a short stay.  You must remain in Canada for 183 days to retain PR status.  You'll need to re-apply once you intend to live in Canada on a permanent basis.

Customer
what is my best course of action? I cannot stay longer than a few weeks.
