Recently I got PR cards for myself and family and then came back to gulf to start wrapping up things. During documents check I realized that my first name in PR card has a single spelling error however its rightly printed on landing papers. Now I worried to think for any travelling issue because spellings of first name is not matching with my passport name. Appreciate for your advise. Note: I am currently out of Canada and planning to travel to Canada soon.

If the wrong information is on your permanent resident (PR) card, you can fix it by getting your card reissued or by applying for a new one. The method you choose depends on the reason for the error. If you are correcting your name, the name on your PR card must match your foreign passport.
