Hello,

I have a question about meeting the requirements for the physical time in Canada. My wife received her PR in 2014 and it is expiring in August of this year. I am unsure if she met the physical time in Canada requirement. We live in China and work at a Canadian international school, I am a citizenship as well as our 2 children. I read that if she is with a spouse who is a citizen she might be able to count our time here working towards her physical presence in Canada time. We are interested in her applying for citizenship, but intend to continue to work at the international school here. Would she be able to become a citizen? We do come to Canada every summer.

Thanks for any help.
