Default Keeping PR Card after Citizenship

My wife is about to apply to become a citizen. We hear that once she is granted citizenship, she will have to surrender her PR Card.

She quite likes the card and wants to keep it as a souvenir, as many people do with expired, voided passports. Does anyone know if there's a way for her to keep her PR Card once she's sworn in as a citizen?

I guess you can only ask. I handed mine over at the ceremony.

No you can not keep it. PR is a government property and governments do not let people keep souvenirs.

On the serious note, u must surrender the card and landing papers before Citizenship card can be issued.

It must be such a downer trading in the lovely PR card for the amateurish-looking citizenship one

Recommended to keep a copy of the PR Card.

Canadians probably wouldn't need a passport to enter the United States if the citizenship card was produced to the same standards as the PR Card.

It is a downer, yes. I don't see why the card can't be voided somehow, like how the passport office does with old passports (which are also government property). How depressing.
