You do not need to provide a Canadian address. Your IO (immigration officer) will give you a form to complete when you move to Canada and acquire a permanent address for your PR card. You can also download the form at www.cic.gc.ca/english/e-services.

Do you have the link to the actual form (in PDF)?

Not to disagree with you guys, but others like myself were in the same situation and did it another way. We provided a temporary address in Canada, mostly a friend´s or acquantance´s. Once they received the card, they then forwarded it to us by mail or FedEx (to the U.S. in many cases).

This ensured prompt acquisition of the card without having to wait to get permanent housing in Canada. I would still do it this way and recommend this procedure.

Yes, definitely try the way Richard did, if you know someone already living in Canada. Typically there is no problem with that method. However, your IO may not accept it (it happened to me, and it is within their right to deny an address unless it really is yours); also, not everyone knows someone or can use another address. But you don´t have to worry if that is the case; you´ll just have to wait for your card.

Yes, wannabe is correct. If a temporary address is not possible or accepted by immigration, then an address can be provided later.
