I am a Canadian PR and lived in Toronto from Aug 2001 to July 2006.

My husband & two children are Canadian Citizens.

I returned to India with kids in 2006; my husband stayed back in Canada for some more time and returned to India in 2009. From 2009 to till date we are all here in India.
We are planning to relocate to Canada in April 2019 and I need to apply for my PRTD.

I went through the Residency Obligation document; as I am living with my husband (Canadian citizen) for last 9 years, I can count those days as my days of stay in Canada.

Have a question on PRTD application :

There is a column asking for “Canadian Permanent address” in the application. We do not have an address in Canada as we are all here from 2009.

Please advise what to enter in this space.
Thanks

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in this type of information.

According to the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Call Centre representatives, you should include an N/A in that question and then attach a separate sheet of paper with an explanation as to why you do not have a "Canadian permanent address".

The separate sheet should include information regarding which section you are referring to (Question 12A) and state that you would like to specify the reasons why there is no Canadian address available.

We have had some of our users previously state that they have been able to contact IRCC from abroad by dialing 1 613 944 4000. Listen to the options to get to IRCC. Then you should be transferred to the IRCC Call Centre.

Please note though we are not sure if this number continues to work this way.

You may want to give it a try.

Please be aware that long distance charges will apply.

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.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You will have to contact the nearest visa office for some information regarding what their options are in terms of entering Canada.

Some of our users have reported that they have been able to contact IRCC from abroad by dialing 1 613 944 4000. Listen to the options to get to IRCC.

Long distance charges will apply.

If you are in Canada, you can contact the IRCC Call Centre here:

1-888-242-2100 (In Canada Only)

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.
