You Don’t Need to Renew Your PR Card
As a Canadian citizen, you can get a Canadian passport. If you are 16 years old or younger, your passport will be valid for a maximum of 5 years. If you are 16 years old or older, your passport will be valid for 5 or 10 years, depending on which one you apply for.
It is an easier and faster process to renew a passport than a Permanent Resident card.
