Hi. I came to Canada in July 2011 along qith my family in fedral scheme. My wife and kids went back in Dec 2011 back to India as my kids were 2 and 4 years and my wife was facing health problems.

Her health was bad so I went to see her in Dec 2012. But her condition was so bad that I could think ro leave her and come back to Canada.My wife died in Sep 2014 due to Cancer.
Being kids so young was not possible to come to Canada. I got remmariage in July 2015. And I came to Canada in April 2016. My PR got expired in Sep 2016. I applied for renewal for my PR in January 2017. I got the quiestiner and I hv sent back with required supportive doucments same day. I spent almost 1200 days In India. and spent 490 days in Canada. So how much time it takes and what will be the next step. Thanks

Hi Aman Sharma

From your statement, apparently, it is clear that you do not meet the residency obligation of 730 days out of past 5 years. If this is correct, then consult any immigration lawyer or withdraw your renewal application at the earliest otherwise next step may be interview at local CIC Office.
I personally suggest you to withdraw and when you successfully withdraw your application, then stay in Canada for 730 days and then re-apply.

Hi,
Iam Permanent Resident Canada since Dec.2012. My PR card is expiring in April, 2018.
I have completed my residency obligations of 730 days at different sessions.I had multiple visits out side Canada .In one of my visits I was checked at YYZ airport by the officer. She put a stamp which is not eligible, but only written the world "PR'. with a pen.She told me that I would like to inform you to complete your residency obligations if not completed yet.
I carefully and more consciously completed the residency obligation, but I have lost my passport, only the proof of my exit from Canada was the entry stamp of the arriving Country.CBSA also don't have the record of exit as I have understanding.
I had Financial statements ,all bank debit card and credit card transactions, Notices of Tax assessments, the amount of rent paid by my account to the apartments of University in which my daughter was studying.In University rent document the name of my daughter and wife is mentioned.[ The rent paid account was joint account with my wife]The University only mentions two persons name in Rent document.
Now we have purchased a house which is also in my wife name.Do you think all financial documents can help to prove my residency obligations.Kindly guide me as I want to apply for renewal of my PR card.I have also requested CBSA,online to provide my travel history a weak before.

Friends thanks for your concern. The best news is I got the letter From Immigration and Refuge Canada. They have sent my PR for printing and it will reach to your mailing address in 8 to 12 weeks.Other wise they will inform where to pick. I presented my case my self only. As lawyers were asking $2500 to 3500. But my got the letter in 10 months only. Hope this information will help to boost others also.God help every one as its al stressful time. But if your case is genuine and you are very clear, then dont worry things will go in your way.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

As you already know, as a permanent resident, you may travel outside Canada after you arrive. However, you must meet certain residency obligations to maintain your status as a permanent resident.


To meet these residency obligations, you must be physically present in Canada for at least 730 days (2 years) in every 5-year period. The 5-year period is assessed on a rolling basis. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will look back at your time in Canada over the previous 5 years.

This means that you can spend a total of up to 3 years outside of Canada during a 5-year period. However, if you have been a permanent resident for less than 5 years and decide to leave the country for an extended period of time, it is up to you to prove to IRCC that you will be able to meet your residency requirements.


It is best that you contact the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada Client Support Call Centredirectly for some information specific to 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.
