Subject: after getting PR can the person leave Canada?
hello, sorry for maybe a stupid question, but at the moment i cant find the answer.
If a person just got PR, can they leave Canada to live somewhere else for some time? If they do, do they lose PR or is there an amount of time they can leave for without losing PR??
Thanks

guys u seem to be mistaken,
first to maintain ur permenent resident u have to stay in canada at least TWO years out of five years u got..then u can renew ur permenent resident..and if u wanna applay for the canadian citizenship then u have to stay in canada three years in the LAST four years...
