    To Go Now or To Delay?

    I landed back in Aug 2018 with my wife and son. We returned to our home two weeks after landing. We already received our PR cards. We were planning to make the big permanent move to Canada this time around, but now we are re-considering given the pandemic. Technically speaking, and to adhere to...

    Travel to canada - PR card

    I am no expert, but I don't think there is any border that is easier or better than another. It will all depend on your luck. I would say go as soon as possible and pray that you will be handled by an officer, who won't report you. If you manage to do that, then stay put in Canada until you meet...

    Length of Stay Outside Canada & other formalities

    1). How long can a Canadian PR stay out of Canada if there is still time left on expiry of PR card? Just make sure you dont stay outside Canada for more than 3 years. To be safe, I would not stay outside for more than 2 and a half years (leave half a year as a buffer). 2). While returning after...

    Will I get kicked out for misrepresentation?

    Go to Canada ASAP and keep praying on the way. If you are lucky and do not get reported, stay put in Canada for at least 2 consecutive years.

    PR card holder wondering if there would be any reason why I could not return to Canada

    Nothing to worry about at all, as long as you respect the minimum residency requirement. i.e. be physically present in Canada at least 2 years in evry 5 year period. In your case, you are fine.

    I got sick during my first landing

    Yes, thank you. But the strange thing is that the hospital did not ask me to pay anything. They showed me the prices and then after treatment, they just let me go. !!!

    I got sick during my first landing

    Hi All, When I went to Canada for my "first landing", I got sick and went to the emergency in Niagra Falls. Because I did not have a health card, they said it will cost me around 2000 USD (or some amount like that - I forgot), and I said no problem as I was in pain. I got treated and left the...

    Thank you very much. For point 3: does that mean if we have a child outside Canada (before our move), we have to leave him(her) behind and go to Canada and apply for PR from there? either both or one of us. Is my understanding correct?
