Hello,

According to the IRCC website, if you’re outside Canada without a valid PR card, you need to apply for a permanent resident travel document (PRTD).
BUT, to keep your permanent resident status, you must have been in Canada for at least 730 days during the last five years. These 730 days don’t need to be continuous. Some of your time abroad may count towards the 730 days.

Please check the following link answering the question:Can I lose my permanent resident status?

Reasons you may be inadmissible to Canada:
failure to comply with any provision of IRPA
Examples of failure to comply with IRPA include:

Permanent residents who haven’t lived in Canada for the required amount of time

Hope this is useful.
Thanks.
