Hello
I have applied for the express entry from within Canada, but unfortunately my passport expires in 5 month and I am not able to renew my passport ,until next .due to the military service in my home country, It takes around a year to be able to get a new passport. Is it possible to receive the permanent residence card if my passport is expired if I am applying from within Canada ?

1. Yes, there is no requirement for PR card renewal to have a valid passport.
