Hi

My query is that how long I can stay outside Canada? Currently I am in India since 22nd Oct 2019.

Below is my history in Canada

22nd August 2016 - landed as student
Applied my PR in July 2018
Got my COPR in February 2019
Did landing process on 17th May 2019
Got my PR card on 10th July 2019
Left Canada on 21st oct 2019 for India
Canada stay duration from 22nd August 2016 - 20th oct 2019 (3years and 2months)

I am returning back to Canada on 26th April 2020, so it would be a stay of six month and three days in India. Would it affect my Permanent Residency status? Should I inform any official body regarding the total duration of my stay outside Canada?

Thank you!

Thank you!


1. To maintain your PR status, you have to spend a total of 2 years in Canada between 17/May/19 and 17/May/24
2, Days prior to you becoming a PR are not counted.

3. You don't inform anyone, other than your PRovincial health.

Hi
I was landed immigrant as skilled worker with my son and spouse in 2010. Due to health issue of my parents , I had to come back with my family. My son and spouse returned to India after 2 month and I returned after 5 month. Due to responsibilty of taking care of my parents , I never returned to Canada. Now my son is of 18 years, He want to study higher education in Canada. But I and my spouse don't want to come to Canada.
SO, what are options for my son,

1 Applying for study permit:
- will old PR status hamper his study permit application?

or

2. Applying for PRTD for my son
-How much time will they take to decide for grant PRTD on Humanitarian ground ?- I don't know
-If IRCC take loner time, than it will spoil his important year of career.
-Can He apply for study permit after rejection of PRTD application?
-If IRCC reject his plea for PRTD , what are the option for him? Can he appeal for it?
- During process of appeal for rejection of PRTD, should he physically present in Canada? If yes, Can he study while appeal period in Canada?

Kindly , reply . I am in dilemma, Please guide me

Hi,

I am an Indian Passport Holder and having a valid Canadian visa. I have few queries.

I am coming to Canada in Feb, 2021. and I have come to know about G1/G2 driving license in Toronto. is that possible to get G1/G2 license on Visitor visa. As I had a word with one driving school in Toronto and they said you need a local address to avail G1 license and for G2 license you need Visitor record form. then you can stay in Toronto for more then a year in a single stay.

If it is possible, then I need assistance for the same and will ready to pay the service charges.
also wanted to know that how to get LMIA and its charges.

Regards

Ravi

Hello there,

I writing to you today to enquire about PR rules and extended period of time outside Canada after receiving my PR and landing in Canada.

My situation is that after I obtained my PR, I was accepted for a Phd role in Czech republic with full scholarship. The duration is 4 years, however I can stay 2 or 3 years in Czech republic and then continue the Phd online and travel once or twice a year for meetings (short visits).

Therefore, I wanted to ask if this scenario would violate or harm my PR conditions set by the IRCC. Also, should/how I contact IRCC to brief them about this situation?

I would appreciate if you could give me credible and detailed information regarding my case as I'm a new immigrant and don't want to miss an opportunity that can help me be a better and more productive resident/citizen in Canada.

Thank you very much. I look forward to hearing back from you.

Stay safe.

Kind regards,
Ahmed

1. No need to inform CIC as they aren't interested in your plans. All that they are interested in that to maintain your PR status that you reside in Canada for 2 years in every 5 year period. It is a rolling 5 year period. If you spend 3 years outside Canada in the Czech republic, you may have difficulty meeting your residency obligations.
