I cannot find the dates I had exited Canada.

I travel frequently because my wife and children are still there.

I have completed Everything to apply for citizenship,however, this is the one thing holding me back.

I called the Indian embassy and they said there is nothing they can do.

I even went through my passport for stamped dates, some are missing because they were not stamped in India.

Help please I have been a PR for over 25 years.

No matter who I call or where I go, no-one is able to assist with the dates.

Hello there,

Thank you for sharing your question with us.

IRCC has a travel journal resource to help you keep track and record your trips outside of Canada. In this travel journal, the date of departure from Canada as “from” and date of return to Canada as “to”.

According to IRCC’s Physical Presence Calculator, the date of arrival and date of departure are both considered days you are present in Canada and may be excluded from your calculation for the number of days outside Canada. Please note, the intended use of this calculator is to calculate physical presence for citizenship applications. The residency requirement for citizenship requires physical presence in Canada for 1,095 days.

You may want to contact IRCC using their web form to make a case-specific inquiry. You may also wish to consult a reputable and registered immigration consultant or an immigration lawyer for advice regarding your situation and help with your application.

We hope this information is helpful. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to post them here.

Sincerely,

Your Settlement.Org Team
