Subject: For how long can a PR stay out of Cad at a stretch
Is there any number of days a PR can stay can stay out of Canada at a stretch without causing any harm to the PR status?

Thanks

By the book, almost 3 years.

Even more, may be unlimited under certain situations.

Saikripa, perhaps you can help us out here. We are debating the job market in Canada and based on your question... it would appear that you don´t really intend to make Canada your home.

If I am understanding this right, perhaps you can help by telling us why, what you do, and what you will be doing instead.

Why would using the 3 year rule be considered not intending to make Canada home? Is there a rule someplace that you have to move right away, else somehow be disloyal? Or is Immigration correct in providing immigrants a time period to make this transition? I´d say the latter.

You have to stay for 730 days out of 5 years. This is a rolling time horizon.

There is no compulsion to move right away. However, if asked in interview about the same, answer that "you will move soon".I remember reading in some forum a guy got rejected in interview because he said that he will move in 2 years or so.

if transition is what this is about - then we have our answer and I have no problem with that. I was more interested to hear if it was as DC has suggested - Canadians fleeing Canada for better opportunites elsewhere.

It is understandable that some people can´t move right away though overall if someone applies for PR is because they plan to immigrate there eventually.

I guess family issues and personal problems may always come in the way and prevent someone to move right away. Who knows ? Maybe Saikripa has good reasons not to move right away.

I think we all should try to focus more on how to help, otherwise answer their questions properly rather than invoking unnecessary debates.

If don´t like current immigration law/regulations, then speak out in our own country, MPs..not start doubting anyone´s true intention thus giving a negative feeling before even arrival.

Sharon, transition data is NOT included by anyway in the fleeing Canadian data (about 8.3%) that I quoted from Vancouver Sun. BY NO WAY, I suggested or made those data. I just delivered. I really feel frustretd when people didn´t read anything with care and start creating unnecessary debate. That report clearly says, upon which I made my urgument, departing ones are mostly born Canadians, with high quality Canadian degree. Canadian citizens wouldn´t wait for immigration transition for sute. Or they do?

It is well known that at least 2 million of canadians are in the US legally. what % do they make?

If ask me, I would say the actual no. is much more, as this data are made out of tax file info. only. If you file your tax as a non-resident then only you´ll be counted here. Otherwise you are still in Canada. Now add the PRs working/living abroad who file tax in Canada to keep the PRship intact.

Good Luck.

Hello all

I agree with Richard´s comments. I have all the intentions to make Canada my home. But right now my priority is to take care of my mom who is sick.

I think this would suffice.

Thanks all for helping me with my quetion.

Sharon, there are things that are important and then there are things that are absolutely urgent and need immediate attention.


Thanks
