Hi,

Thank you very much for all the help from this forum!

My situation: I became a Canadian PR being a citizen of one country (China), now I am a citizen of another...
Do I have to renew my PR card to reflect my new citizenship? My original citizenship is printed on my PR card...

My assumption is that I don't have to - I've made just in case a certified copy of my old passport, and if asked at the boarding gate why the citizenship on my pr card doesn't match, I will show the copy my old passport...

Thank you very much!
