Hi, I have already submitted an application to renew my PR Card, which expires in July 2017 and had not planned to travel until way after I received my new card. However, due to unforeseen circumstances I have to go to the US at the end of June. Please advise if the validity of a PR card is regarded the same way as that of a passport in that it technically becomes useless 6 months before the actual expiry date?

Essentially, I need to know if it's okay to travel outside of Canada (by air) and return just a few days before my PR card expires.

Travel dates: Leaving Canada on June 30, 2017 and returning on July 3, 2017.
PR Card expiration: July 6, 2017.

I do not know if this has any relevance to my situation but I also hold a valid Nexus card.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Ian

1. As long as you present PR card is valid, then you shouldn't have any problems re-entering Canada.
