    RamMur, Your issues/ concerns with the PR Card and its impact on education for your daughter while important are actually secondary to the real problem you face.

    Going to U.S 1 week after landing - how to come back?

    TRV = Temporary Resident Visa. Issued to visitors who do not hold a visitor visa exempt passport to Canada. CBSA just need to verify you are a PR and they must admit you as per a Constitutional right. Showing them your landing documents e.g. COPR/ IMM1000 makes this a much easier and more...

    1. As far as I can tell some of your family members (You/Spouse) have PR, Some have lost PR after PRTD rejection (your kids) and your failing to appeal and some never held PR (born outside Canada).

    Drunk driving happened in Abroad now Returning back to Canada

    No he won't be denied entry especially as CBSA/CIC won't know about this. CIC does ask about convictions both in Canada and overseas at citizenship application stage. Your friend should immediately seek legal advise on what his charges mean compared to the Canadian Criminal Code (CCC)...

    Apply For PR WHILE having resdince obligation hearing

    The OPs story is somewhat convoluted. He seems to have applied for a PRTD on grounds of being removed as a minor to Lebanon. The PRTD got bounced and he appealed. Since he had not been in Canada in 365 days prior to the PRTD refusal he is not eligible to be issued a PRTD to attend the appeal in...

    Umbrella Company/Contract Management companies for Work Permit for a US Client

    If the end user/client is in the US why is this job based in Canada and not the US (where it makes more logical sense) or some other third country say that of your citizenship or long term residence? CIC ain't buying this one.

    Eligibility to get PR for Parents of Canadian child

    Sorry no dice. Your son can sponsor you once he is an adult and earns enough money. This assumes the sponsorship of parents and grandparents under the family class stream will be in existence when he attains this age. You are better off looking at the other forms of getting PR such as through...

    First Time Visa Request

    The main concern of the visa post is that you will go back home after your visit. Travelling to Canada just for a concert is not entirely unusual but its not common. The visa officer will look at your proof of ties and in particular your income levels and determine if in relation to this the...

    Question about a vistor coming back to canada for a visit, UK resident

    Put yourself in the shoes of the CBSA agent...you have a person before you at the inspection booth that says they are visiting Canada but actually can be deemed to be living here because they spend more time in Canada than in their home country. This is not the pattern of stay for a bonafide...

    Re: Entering Canada with an expired PR card -Advice You can renew your PR Card if you meet the RO...you don't so applying for a PR Card would be a bad idea. CBSA must admit you since PRs have the constitutional right of entry into Canada if they can make it to the border. However CBSA agent...
