In the form the address where you have resided is asked, 6 years or since PR. I am in Canada since 4 years, so 2 years residence is for the country I came from?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find some detailed information in the Application for Canadian citizenship under subsection 5(1) – Adults 18 years of age and older (CIT 0002) Instruction Guide.


Here are some excerpts,

Write all your Canadian addresses for the six (6) years before the date of your application or since you became a permanent resident, whichever is more recent ("the relevant period"), including the postal codes.


If you were residing, employed or attending school outside Canada, you must also list all your foreign addresses, including the postal codes.



and

The relevant period


The relevant period is your residence period (your calculation of time physically present in Canada). This information is used to help make sure you have met the physical presence requirement for Canadian citizenship. The minimum amount of time you need to be in Canada to be eligible for citizenship is 1,460 days within the six years immediately before applying. This means that your relevant period starts a minimum of 1,460 days before you sign your application.




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.
