Subject: Counting?

I know that the PR card has a validity of 5 years and that I have to be present in Canada at least 2 of those 5 years in order to keep my status as permanent resident. My question is:

Do the 5 years start counting at the time you enter Canada for the first time as permanent resident??? or it starts from date of PR card issued?

It is not two years it is a combination of 730 days (IN ANY FIVE YEAR PERIOD from the time you got landed)!

730 days is days but many see 365 + 365 = 730

It is more like 100 + 150 + 200 + 75 + 105 + 100 = 730


PR CARD RENEWAL (in reply to: Counting?)
I want to renew my expired or card but I have an important question regarding counting the 730 days .....I traveled 30 times during the last 5 years period so I have 30 departure days and 30 arrival days , so the departure and arrival day will be counted ass a full day in Canada or not , for example if I left Canada on july 15 at 8 pm , and arrived Canada on july 19 at 11 pm ... so this absent is 3 days or 4 days or 5 days
