Subject: Can Years working abroad count towards citizenship
  Hi folks
I am a Permanent Resident of Canada. I have a job offer to work abroad for a Canadian University for 3 years. This Canadian University has a campus in canada and one campus abroad. According to the laws, it seems that I will be able to maintain my residency status. But I called the CIC to ask if those days can be counted towards my citizenship application and they said NO. Is that true??? Do you physically have to be in Canada for 3 years in last 4 years to be able to apply for citizenship??

I thought if I am able to maintain my residency by working for a canadian company abroad, I will automatically be able to use those years towards my citizenship. It seems as if when I will come back to Canada, I would have to wait for 3 years to be able to apply for citizenship.

I might have incorrect informatiom, I will really appreciate if you can share some information and let me know what is correct and what is incorrect

Thanks a bunch
