Changing your residential address is one of the major concerns after landing in Canada for every single person.
One of the advantages of being a permanent resident in Canada is that you can reside and do your official work anywhere in the country, no restrictions! However, your permanent resident card (also called a PR card) that serves as secure proof of your residential status in Canada, must have your current address on it. If you move or change your address, you will also have to change your address on your permanent resident card, because your residential details are also mentioned on the Permanent Resident Card.
