Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

As you may know, to meet these residency obligations, you must be physically present in Canada for at least 730 days (2 years) in every 5-year period.

This means that you can spend a total of up to 3 years outside of Canada during a 5-year period. However, if you leave the country for an extended period of time, it is up to you to prove to Citizenship and Immigration Canada that you will be able to meet your residency requirements.

Loss of permanent residency is a complicated issue. Unfortunately, we cannot provide a definitive response regarding whether or not your wife will be able to successfully sponsor you after the loss of permanent residency.

It is best if your wife seek some legal advice related to the plans or ideas you have in order to re-apply for your permanent residency.

To find a lawyer, you can find some information in our Settlement.Org How do I find a lawyer? article.

Once she returns to Canada, she may also want to contact the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) Call Centre directly for some information on what your options are. Please note that she does not have to provide any personally identifying information in order to ask a question.

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.
