Subject: Renewal of residence permit
  My family and I arrived in Canada as a permanent resident in 2011 unfortunately I found difficulty finding a suitable job to support my family in Toronto, decided to go back and work again in the Middle East, often coming back once / twice a year and staying for a maximum period of 1 month. This happened for four consecutive years until mid 2015 when I found a permanent job in Fort McMurray and made a decision for us to all moved west to Calgary.
Will this consequence affect my permanent residency?
Can I renew my residence permit which will be expiring on 2016?

You will have to wait until you have lived in Canada for 2 out of the last 5 years before you will be able to renew your PR cards.

If you mean renew your permanent residence card, you need to show that you resided in Canada for 2 out of the last 5 years (as the previous post mentioned).

However, you do not lose your permanent residency even if you miss that time requirement. But it is at risk. If you can return and prove you lived in Canada for 2 out of the most recent 5 years, the card can be renewed. Also, a PR card is not required of permanent residents.

Hello,

I am a permanent resident to Canada. I entered into Canada on March 2009 as a permanent resident and left Canada April 2009. I returned to Canada on August 2013 and from that time I am living here and as a permanent resident. On March 2014 I have applied for renewal of my pr card though that time I have not met the requirement of 730 days. After a long process 2 days ago immigration officer issued a departure letter to me as I have not met the residency obligation during the period when I applied for renewal of my pr card. They gave me an appeal form to appeal within 30 days.

I want to appeal that decision. In the meantime can I again apply for renewal of my pr card as I am living in Canada more than 800 days within last 5 years period (August 2013- November 2015).
If I appeal with the help of professional lawyer, can I leave Canada during the appeal process as my family members and my child live another country?

Please help me to get my answer

When you returned to Canada, why didn´t you wait 2 years before applying to renew your PR card? That way, you would have qualified. But since you applied for renewal with less than 2 years residency in the most recent 5 years, you failed to qualify for continued PR.

Since you made known your failure to reside 2 years, I don´t think an appeal will help. But you can try.

CANADA PERMANENT RESIDENT (in reply to: Renewal of residence permit)
Canadian Permanent Resident is waste. Canada earns money with this new concept.

I got my Permanent Resident Card after going to Canada but it is absolutely waste of money and time.

No JOB opportunities are available in Canada. The only available is "Racism"

Where ever you go - you find only Racial discrimination.

Government take care of unemployment people and their kids by paying monthly - Government will not consider PR for any care!!!

if you have 1 child then you get CAD $850 per month to feed your child. 2nd child - 950$... 3rd child 1050 $.. so basically if you give birth you earn more!!!

I am thinking to return to Native country :(

DO NOT GO TO CANADA AND WORRY
