Dear moderator i am in great trouble please read my situation deeply and answer in detail

I was granted ist pr card in Dec-2002 .

not sure why you are asking the same question twice. 730 out of 5 years. Why would you ask someone else to do the math for you? you have the dates, you have a calendar - count!

Sharon since it is days and the poster does not specify the exact day in the month and year they were absent it is an impossible task.

No matter what answer is given it could be correct or wrong!

To make things easy for you, as suggested above, do a post in the format:

In dd/mm/yyyy
Out dd/mm/yyyy
.
.
.
ect

Maybe knowledgeable people around here can help you out.

I´m not a lawyer and my undertanding is 730 days out of ANY five years. You pick ANY continuous 5 years span, you have to have 730 days.

Hope this helps.

maybe this will help.

The day you attempt to enter Canada the calendar starts back for the 5 year period - regardless of how old or new your PR card is. You need to have been IN the country 730 days in the past 5 years.

trips to the US is not IN the country. The clock does not restart with a new card. Will they let you get away with less than 730 days - that is anyone´s guess and I would wonder why anyone would want to take the risk.

This subject baffles me. Why would you immigrate to a country you don´t want to live in?

assume yes. with scanners and chips the day of the trusty stamp is over. Easy solution - actually fulfill your residency obligations and you will have nothing to worry about.
