Permanent resident travel document: About the process
If you’re outside Canada without a valid PR card, you need to apply for a permanent resident travel document (PRTD).
A PRTD is normally only valid for one single entry. You should apply for a new PR card as soon as you resume residence in Canada.

Giving up permanent resident status
If you want to give up (renounce) your permanent resident status and want to come to Canada as a visitor only, don’t apply for a PRTD. You should apply to voluntarily give up (renounce) your permanent resident status.
