I landed in Canada as a PR in 2013.For supporting my family here I did my previous job in my home country. I was there for about 2.5 years.
I submitted my request for renewal of my PR card after 750 day staying in Canada.
they received my application on May 17, 2018 ,but nothing happen after that.
I sent them several email but they didn't give me a clear reason for so prolong waiting time.In the last email, an agent told me wait until end of January 2019 !!! and If you dont receive your card then send an email again!!!!
Why do they hide something from me?Why they emotionally manipulate me!

please kindly advise me what I can do?Is going to a court useful?

Hi,

I am the Permanent Resident of Canada. My PR Card has expired on 18th April, 2018. I applied for renewal of PR Card. Now I have received the reply to represent to prove residency obligations for the PR Card. I have multiple visits to US and Pakistan. I have my I-94k showing my entry and exit to and from US. The CBSA provided the dates of entry to Canada only from US/Pakistan but they didn't provide me the exit dates from Canada. I am in Pakistan since 10th Feb, 2018. I have lost my original passport but I have attested copies of the passport from Pakistan.
1: They have asked to provide R11 Travel History from Pakistan.Kindly let me know what is R11 and how can we get it? I have the photocopy of some of the tickets and boarding cards but not all.
2: I was admitted in the hospital in Canada and paid for the ambulance but I don't have the discharge slip and the receipts. How can I get hospital admission dates.
3: My daughter was studying in a University in Toronto. The house lease was contracted in the name of my wife and my daughter. I was staying with them. How can it help me for my residential status?

Hi,

I am a permanent resident of Canada and my husband is a Canadian citizen. My PR card was expired Feb 2018. I have been in Canada for 100 days in the last 5 years. I met my husband in the US in 2015 after I left Canada. We have been together for near 4years. We are married for 1.5 years. In the last 4 years, we lived in 3 different cities and all the time we had 2 different addresses as were officially employed in 2 different cities. He lived with me in the same residential address as he worked more than 6 months remotely, in the rest we have been together at least 10 days in a month, holidays, vacations and summer time for total 730 days. We are expecting a newborn in April and we would like to return to Canada next summer. Does CIC accept our request to renew my PR? How we can prove that we were together saying that we have bills with both addresses. Thank you for your help

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would want to confirm what type of supporting documents you would need to prove this.

We hope that others who have been in this type of situation can share their experiences and suggestions.

From the information we have found, according to the Operational Manual ENF 23 - Loss of Permanent Resident Status,

7.5. Accompanying a Canadian citizen outside Canada

R61(4) provides that each day a permanent resident is outside Canada accompanying (that is,ordinarily residing with) a Canadian citizen constitutes a day of physical presence in Canada,provided that the Canadian citizen they are accompanying is a spouse or common-law partner or parent. In the case of a permanent resident outside Canada accompanying a Canadian citizen, it is not necessary to determine who is accompanying whom, nor is it necessary to determine for what purpose. In other words, under A28(2)(a)(ii) and R61(4), as long as a permanent resident is accompanying a Canadian citizen, the intent and purpose of their absences are not relevant as the residency obligation is met.


It also states,

In the case of a permanent resident outside Canada accompanying a Canadian citizen, it is not necessary to determine who is accompanying whom, nor is it necessary to determine for what purpose. In other words, under A28(2)(a)(ii) and R61(4), as long as a permanent resident is accompanying a Canadian citizen, the intent and purpose of their absences are not relevant as the residency obligation is met.


Regarding your supporting documents, you can find a list of what is submitted with the Applying for a travel document (permanent resident abroad) (IMM 5529) instruction guide.

Here is an excerpt,

OPTION 1. Accompanying a Canadian citizen or permanent resident outside Canada

You may count each day that you accompanied a Canadian citizen or permanent resident outside Canada provided that


  • the person you accompanied is your spouse, common-law partner or parent (if you are a child under 19 years of age);
  • if you are accompanying a permanent resident, they were employed on a full-time basis by a Canadian business or in the public service of Canada or of a province or territory during the period you accompanied them.

Evidence required
You must provide supporting documents to prove that:
  • The person you are accompanying is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident (and that the permanent resident you are accompanying meets his or her own residency obligation); and
  • You are the spouse, common-law partner or child of that person.
Supporting documents may include:
  • marriage licence or evidence of common-law partnership (mandatory if you are accompanying a spouse or common-law partner)
  • child’s birth certificate, baptismal document, or adoption or guardianship document (mandatory if you are accompanying a parent)
  • all passports or other travel documents of the person you are accompanying used in the five years before the application (mandatory)
  • school or employment records
  • association or club memberships
  • documents showing the citizenship of the person you are accompanying, including the date the person became a Canadian citizen, or documents showing that the permanent resident you are accompanying meets their residency obligation (mandatory)
  • evidence of the residential addresses of the person you are accompanying for the five (5) years before the application (mandatory)
  • any other documents that you want to have considered


It is also probably best that you speak to a reputable Lawyer or a registered and reputable Immigration Consultant who is familiar with Canadian immigration issues for additional information regarding your situation and before you start any application processes.

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.
