Hi, I just wanted to check if anyone is familiar with the process for sponsoring a dependent child. I am a PR but currently living in Ireland. Our 3rd child is due in Sep and I just want to check if we can sponsor while outside of Canada? I asked via a CSE and they advised if you are a PR you can sponsor, they did not mention being outside of Canada as an issue but online it seems to say you need to be in Canada. Also just to check my daughter is a Canadian citizen. As our visa was up we moved back to Ireland while awaiting our PR. As she is a citizen, does time caring for her outside of Canada count towards our days in Canada (Long shot but wanted to check) TIA

1. No, PRs can't sponsor while residing outside Canada.

2. No, accompanying a Citizen child outside Canada doesn't preserve your PR status.
