Subject: staying abroad more than 3 years for PR's
  I HAVE HEARD THAT MANY IMMIGRANTS WHO GET A PR STAY ABROAD WITHOUT RETURNUNG TO CANADA FOR MORE THAN 3 YEARS AND STILL MAINTAIN A PR STATUS BY PROVIDING AND SHOWING THAT THEY WERE PAYING TAXES IN CANADA AND EVEN APPLYING FOR CITIZENSHIP. IS IT ADVISABLE TO STAY FOR MORE THAN 3 YEARS IN A 5 YEAR PERIOD AND IS THE CANADIAN IMMIGRATION SYSTEM HAVING ANY LOOP HOLES WHICH SOME IMMIGRANTS USE FOR THEIR ADVANTAGE? ALSO AFTER 3 YEARS IF YOU ARE IN CANADA AND STILL HAVE TO VISIT YOUR HOME COUNTRY FOR ANY WORK WILL THAT BE A PROBLEM?

2 years out of 5 is the rule and given the mood in Canada... I would strongly suggest you not play games with that regulation. Last time I went through customs they scanned my passport. That means they know to the minute when I left the country. They know when you come and go and paying income tax is NOT the same as residency. Do not be surprised if residency rules change and become more stringent. The recent fiasco in Lebanon has the Canadian public in a state of outrage.

If you don´t want to live in Canada... be honest about it instead of looking for loopholes and allow some other person who is patiently waiting in line a chance to make the life in Canada that they want.

FROM WHICH DATE THE PR STATUS STARTS (in reply to: staying abroad more than 3 years for PR's)
DOES THE PR STATUS START FROM THE DATE WHEN YOU FIRST LANDED IN CANADA OR THE PR CARD ISSUING DATE? OR THE DATE WHEN I LEFT CANADA?

PR Card and Date to check (in reply to: staying abroad more than 3 years for PR's)
There was a visa date which was expiring on and we had to land before that date. Right so after we got the PR Card the PR Card issuing date and expiry date after 5 years is given. We will count the date when we landed in Canada. One more thing my home country passport has changed as that expired and a new passport has been issued so now when I return they will check and scan the pr card before entry?

the new passport is still linked to the old number. There is no fooling CIC about the residency requirements. Your original question is based on bad information and wishful thinking.

thank you for adjusting your caps.

Read section 28 IRPA there are ways such as starting a business and going back to work for yourself but make sure you read the regulations and pay CDN income taxes on earnings.
