    Soft Landing + Immigration Rules

    The photos you submitted will be attached to your CoPR and you'll use these documents to land. In my case, the photo was rejected and I had to send new photos by mail to an IRCC office in Canada before the card was issued. You can provide any address in Canada to receive your PR Card, though...

    Sponsorship of girlfriend

    Both @canuck78 and @dpenabill post very useful information, which normally would be a valid thing to consider; given your clarification, however, things appear to not be as complicated for you. If I understand correctly, you landed (soft landing) in 2017. Do you have a PR Card? - If yes, great...

    Question about Child born outside canada to PR parents

    Forget the PR Card expiry date. This has nothing to do with your residency obligation. Just ignore that date. If you landed on April 19, 2018 and you only have 7 days in Canada, you, and anyone who landed with you and stayed for those days will have to return to Canada by April 26, 2021 (and...

    Have crim record but CDN child

    I would also recommend seeking counsel from an experienced lawyer in these matters. I am not a lawyer, but on the face of it and from what I do know, it will probably be very difficult for your husband to be admitted into Canada. Unfortunately he (and you and your daughter) will have to live...

    confusion about pr card validity

    And an expired PR card (as long as not expired more than 5 years) is said proof of eligibility https://www.ontario.ca/page/documents-needed-get-health-card. The OP stated that they have a PR Card that expired in 2017. The question was always relating to registering for OHIP. To do so, one must...

    CIC sent correspondence... Please Help!

    I am not 100% sure about my answer so perhaps someone else could weigh in on this question, but I believe that you will receive instruction from IRCC. This instruction will contain a reference number which will allow the Doctor to send the results directly to IRCC.

    confusion about pr card validity

    Service Ontario won't have anything to do with residency obligation as it affects PR status. As the OP is asking about OHIP, there are other documents (utility bills, lease/mortgage, etc.) that are used to determine residency in the Province of Ontario and the OP should be able to use the PR...

    CIC sent correspondence... Please Help!

    Keep trying. You will get the message that you can't be connected many times before you can actually speak to an agent. I've found that the best time to call is between 7am and 8am Eastern time.

    CIC sent correspondence... Please Help!

    You can also try calling, which is what I did and the agent can see what department sent the correspondence or maybe even the letter that was sent. Otherwise I don't know what to advise.

    When must i be back to Canada?

    I do not wish to harp on the subject, but unfortunately the system can be cruel. @dpenabill has a very well reasoned and elaborate response and provides valuable insights. Nobody here can tell you what to do or what will happen. The facts as I see them are that you will potentially breach the...

    When must i be back to Canada?

    First and foremost, I do hope that CanuckBrit is able to deal well with what appears to be a very challenging personal situation and come out better at the end. Regarding immigration, I can imagine it's the last thing that you want on your mind right now; however, there do appear to be some...

    renew pr card then exit canada or renew from out of country?

    If/once your application is approved and the card is issued, you may be required to pick it up at an IRCC office in person. This could also involve bringing with you any paperwork or evidence requested by IRCC to sustain your claims of residency in Canada in the applicable 5-year period prior to...

    URGENT - How is the 5 Year for PR Renewal Determination Counted?

    Please could you clarify your dates? You state that your PR will "expire" on 4 Oct, 2023. PR Status does not expire, however a PR Card does. Did you land on Oct. 5, 2018 or is that the date that your card was issued? These are two different things. The dates on your PR Card do not matter at...

    British Transit Visa

    The UK and Ireland have established the so-called Common Travel Area, meaning there are no border checks between the UK and the Republic of Ireland and the UK Border Force will assess your eligibility to enter this area. This may complicate things in your case as even though you are technically...

    Travel & work with Permanent Residence card

    @canuck_in_uk provided a better answer through the link than what I've quoted above. Basically, in order to remain a Permanent Resident of Canada one must spend 730 days in Canada in any 5 year period. Should one fail to meet this requirement, loss is not automatic, but upon examination (by...
