I am a service technician for a Canadian company who provide equipments for mine industry and my main task is travel to the customer site anywhere in the world to provide customer service.

I am resident permanent for 3 years.

I travel around 20 to 25 weeks outside of Canada every year.

My wife and daughter will complete the 1095 days in December 2014.

I heard that is I travelling for my work and the company is Canadian I will be able to apply with my family and I will have to prove a immigration judge all my travelling is for work.

Can you tell me if this is true or if there's someway for me to become a citizenship?

Thank you

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

According to the Section 5 (1.1) of the Citizenship Act time outside Canada will only be counted as equivalent to one day of residence in Canada for Citizenship purposes in this circumstance,

(1.1) Any day during which an applicant for citizenship resided with the applicant’s spouse who at the time was a Canadian citizen and was employed outside of Canada in or with the Canadian armed forces or the federal public administration or the public service of a province, otherwise than as a locally engaged person, shall be treated as equivalent to one day of residence in Canada for the purposes of paragraph (1)(c) and subsection 11(1).


We suggest that it is best for you to contact the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) Call Centre directly for some suggestions and information specifically related to your situation.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
