Hi.

I had received my PR in Feb 2013 and my PR expires in Feb 2019.

I did my landing in 2014 and subsequently visited in 2016 for a month.

Overall stayed only for 1.5 months till then.

Finally I relocated to Canada only in Jan 2018 so will complete only 1 year 2 months by Feb 2019. I have two queries.

Firstly, Will my PR get renewed if I apply for renewal next year considering my stay in Canada during renewal will be less than the mandatory 2 years.

Secondly, My wife and kid (8.5 yrs) don't have a PR. What is the best way to get them here.

Will their PR get rejected if applied now or what is the best time to apply for their PR.

How about getting them on a visit visa.

Please advise.

Thanks.

1. Don't apply to renew your PR card until you have 730 days of residency in the previous 5 years, or there is a good chance that you will be reported for not meeting your residency application.
2. You shouldn't sponsor your family until you have met your Residency obligations. That would be some time in 2019, you would have to work out the dates.

Hi. Thanks for your reply. How about getting my wife and child on a visit visa for few weeks during Xmas period. Will that be a issue?

Sincerely,
Anish
