I am Canadian PR and been living in the USA since I became PR in Canada.

I lived with my Canadian citizen husband.

Am I eligible for Canadian citizenship?

I was told since I am living with Canadian citizen days are counted as I am living in Canada.

1. No, you require physical presence in Canada for citizenship. You may count the days accompanying a Canadian citizen spouse for your Residency obligations for maintaining your PR status. You should note lately there have been a couple of cases where it was determined that the PR was not accompanying their Citizen spouse, as the PR had returned to their country of residence to continue with their employment, and it was found that the PR was "not accompanying their Citizen spouse"
