See for yourself by using the residence calculator.

https://services3.cic.gc.ca/rescalc/resCalcStartNew.do?&lang=en

During the landing interview, the officer will point out to you which year you will be eligible for applying citizenship.

If you remained in Canada ever since you came to Canada, you need to stay in Canada for the next two years until you´re eligible.

Two years after you are landed as a PR.

You still have to do the two years. that is the earliest.

Did you read the site at all?
Big Bold type:

Please note that you cannot meet the residence requirements for citizenship without a minimum of two (2) years as a permanent resident.
