We entered twice by air last year with expired PR cards. The expired cards was pointed out at the end of our 2nd trip. Our fault, we applied almost a year before but with Covid etc we had forgotten. On landing in Canada this was pointed out to us and we were free to enter.

The first problem is flying to Canada. The agent at check departure may not accept an expired PR card. Ours did, but we flew from the US and IMO they are not as ‘on the ball’ as some countries. I would carry all correspondence showing that you have applied.

Entering by land is, I believe, a safer option.

thankyou very much i will give her the information and tell her to take copies of her applications she is too worried to try fly from and into canada but if she decides to drive across the border i think that will be a better option for her everything is taking so long at the moment

I think your case is slightly different as you hold a US passport and US passport holders don't require a visa/eta to enter Canada. I'm an EU passport holder and I was always asked to show my valid PR card when checking in at airpots in the US.

True but we are almost always asked to produce our PR cards, on leaving and entering Canada. Either way as UK/US citizens and Canadian PRs we are required to enter/leave Canada with valid PR cards. AFAIK we cannot enter just as visiting US citizens when we are PRs.
