Subject: Any way of retaining status of Permanent Residency
  Dear All
I got my canadian Permannet Residency in year 2007 and also had made a brief entry to the country to complete the basic formalities of applying for SIN and getting an actual Permanent Residence Card.
I am on work-visa in USA and am also studying part-time. My Company has filed for my Green Card and I also have a US-born kid and a wife is on H4 visa.
My first stage of Green Card ius also not cleared and my deadline to enter canada is also coming soon.
I am not sure but I remember vaguley that if we are doing some studies in USA then we can fill some form for Candian immigration proving our intent to retain our permanent residency withour necessarily staying in canada for 2 years.
If anyone has any suggestions and can share it that will be really helpful and a great deed of philanthropy

Thanks and advance
Gaurav

Is your wife Canadian?
Is your wife a PR of Canada working for a Canadian company in the US?

If the answer is yes to either of these questions then you are ok since every day spent outside Canada with your spouse would then be recognized as a day inside Canada.

If not then why are you trying to become a permanent RESIDENT of two different companies?
Would it not be fair to say that you can only be a resident of one?

Since you have filed for your GC, I recommend you give up your Canadian PR and stay in the US. I see you will have a better future if you stay in the US as you will become GC holder, have a US-citizen kid and your wife is on H4 (who can accompany you on your GC).


I never heard that being a student in the US will waive the 2-yr requirement of Canadian PR.

As a person who has been living in the US for 8 years (on a visa) and recently migrated to Canada, I highly recommend you stay in the US. Being now familiar with the US and Canadian lives and be able to compare between the two countries after experiencing both, I highly encourage you to stay in the US. Don´t regret the Canadian PR. In the end, it´s up to you. It depends on your individual situation.

Mr. 80.235.13 Anonymous gave the best advice. It is foolish try to open both ways. Eventually it may cause more harm than good.

Also, there is no such rule like student on the US.....

Dear Canadian 209.167.163 I guess with your great language skills it is you who should not be here... not someone else who is using his/her free speech rights....As a Canadian check your spelling and sentence structure..learn English then come over here and get a nick name like that ....

I stated in my message, you have to weigh things carefully. It seems your situation is much better in the States rather than Canada. Why bother coming here and start building your life from zero?

Those ,who lived in the States, find Canada pretty similar in many things..different (either better or worse) in others.

To give you an example-
If you are a professional in a regulated profession, you will find yourself forced to go through many credentialing processes including clearing certain exams. You have to go through this in order to be able to find a job. Why bother when you can find a decent job in the States with your own US qualifications?

Things I found better in Canada
Nicer people
Cities and prettier
Safer cities (lower crime rate)..and I feel this when I go out in the night!
Life runs at a slower pace
Jobs are at lower workload volume and less tension and stress
Life is less stringent in rules and regulations that the States

Things I found better in the States
More opportunities in jobs
Education is more advanced
Technology is higher and more widespread
More money!!
Life less expensive in the States than in Canada ==> you save more money
There is always more options in a lot of things
Better customer service

Well you can send your wife back to Canada and ask her to get citizenship at first opportunity. If she then comes back to you, you can find ways of salvaging your own status in Canada based on her citizenship. Meanwhile, if your green card gets approved, you can take your wife back and get the cards for both. Not a bad option... except you will have to live separately during this time.
