Subject: Question about the 2 out of 5 year rule
  Dear All,

I am going to land in Canada as an immigrant, but I would not be moving there until about a couple years from now. I currently live in the US. I think I should be OK with this since after landing in Canada I can stay out of Canada for 3 out a 5 consecutive year period.

I am wondering if this startegy could cause any complication in future when I actually move to Canada.

You advice is great appreciated.
thanks and best regards,

Your immigration visa has an expiry date on it. you must land on or before this date. After that you will be issued a PR card and by virtue of which you have to stay 2 years out of 5 in canada. Means you can easily spend some more time in the U.S. and come back before 2008.

If you land on Sept 1 for an instance, you have to complete 730 days till Aug 31, 2010.
