Thank you for requesting.

Yes your peer card is still valid as is your PR status.

It does not expire for five years from the time you got it.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
but in order to maintain my PR I need to stay in Canada for at least 2 years..so I better enter as soon as possible
Expert:  Legal Ease replied 1 year ago.

Yes. You should start worrying about meeting the residency requirement.

But, even if you lose your status after the five years has passed, you will not lose itbefore that time.
