    does US day trip count as day if I was in Canada same day?

    If you live in US close to the border, you can drive to Canada on 11:55PM and back on 12:05AM. You only need to do so every two nights, you satisfy 100% RO by visiting Canada 10X365/2=1825 minutes or 30 hours per year...

    Crossing border from the States (private vehicle) without valid PR card

    They know your status only if you give any government issued ID which correctly shows your name and date of birth. You don't even need an expired PR card. You don't need a passort to enter Canada by this way. Drivers license or Health card works pretty well (you could lose your passport during...

    Your kid will be 100% OK, just don't lose your kid's valid pr card, because to apply for prtd for him is a headache. CBSA is very friendly to family with kids.

    Pick up at IRCC office...now what?

    I believe the personal pickup is random and not related to PR living in or out of Canada. And for sure, people living out of Canada still qualify for PR card renewal. A PR card is just a travel document. It's the same or maybe more important for PR living out of Canada. I don't agree that IRCC...

    May I return to Canada? How?

    If you don't have a H/C base, it's very hard to win the case. How old is your kid? If it's less than 6, you'd better leave her back and try this out yourself first.

    PR Card Renewal stuck at "Decision made" for 2.5 years

    Sorry to hear this. Have no idea why it comes to this. But to apply for PRTD, I suggest a US visa instead by entering Canada through land entry. No uncertainty issue, and air tickets from US generally cheaper than from Canada

    For PR not stay in Canada more than 730 days but still qualify RO by living with citizen spouse, yes, you could be asked to pick up in person. But it just a way IRCC wants to make sure your address is safe to receive PR card. They send a letter instead. That's all. I was asked to pick up last...
