As of March 15, 2016, Canadian permanent residents may not be permitted to enter Canada without carrying either a valid permanent resident card or a valid permanent resident travel document.
Historically, only citizens of certain countries required a temporary resident visa (TRV) to enter Canada. It will soon become mandatory for most foreign nationals to have either an electronic travel authorization (eTA) or a TRV before entering Canada for any reason.
