Hi, I just wonder what does it mean by "have been lawfully admitted to Canada for a period at least one year"? I read from this forum, I have seen the word "initial admitted" which I couldn't find from CIC website regarding the initial admitted. I am applying for PR through Buffalo. Now the more I read from this forum, the more I'm worried that I might misunderstood that I am eligible to apply PR through Buffalo. I have been travel to Canada couples of time since 2007. Here's my travel detail. Sep 2007 - I got 3 month single TRV to come to Canada for business meeting. I stayed in Canada for 2 weeks. Jan 2008 - I got 1 year multiple TRV. I came to Canada twice using this multiple visa. 2 weeks each trip. Jun 2008 - I cancelled visa I got in Jan 2008 and applied for new one as I renewed my passport. I got 1 year multiple TRV. I used visa I got in Jun 2008, came here to Canada in Jul 2008. Nov 2009 - I applied for study permit from Canadian embassy in US. They gave me 8 months study permit as well as new TRV valid for 8 month even though visa I got in Jun 2008 was still valid. Jul 2009 - I extended my study permit and TRV. I got 1 year extension up until Sep 2010. Since Jul 2008 (almost 2 years until now), I have stayed more than 95% of the time in Canada. I have been traveled back to my home country as well as US, France couple of time for a short trip. My question is, in my case am I eligible to apply for PR through Buffalo? Is "initial admitted" based on first TRV I got in Sep 2007 or it means the one in Jun 2008 that I used it to come here in Jul 2008. If it is from Jun 2008, my visa got cancelled and they issued new TRV to me in Nov 2009 even though original period in Jun 2008 was one year. Anyone who know about this rule, please help me. Thanks.
