Can you please let me know how is 10 year requirement calculated on the application.
My 10 years of parents' sponsorship in Canada is coming up soon based on calendar months/years.

However, During these 10 years they've been in and out of Canada quite often due to attending to a sick relative back home (although, they did spend enough time here to keep their PR status).

Now, the question: Is the total time calculated based on the number of actual years/months spent residing in Canada or calendar years.
I would greatly appreciate your advice!
