Do I need to renew my OCI card every time my Canadian passport?

OCI cards are valid life long, however they are linked to your passport (present or past). The current legislation allows you to use a new passport, OCI card linked to old passport and the old passport. However when you turn 50, the OCI card must be re-issued. The next time you get a new passport, you can use the OCI (issued at age 50), along with the passport valid at the time OCI was issued (at 50). The process of re-issue of of OCI card varries from country to country.
