Permanent residents of Canada don't need to apply for a PR card.

Yes, it is a fact. Newly landed permanent residents have 180 days after they arrive to Canada and inform the IRCC of their Canadian mailing address. By informing IRCC, PR card will be delivered to new immigrants.

Hence, it is advisable to submit this on time as if IRCC don't get the address in time, you'll have to apply and pay for your card on your own.

Go to CIC website to apply for PR cards.
