Hi, I live and work in the US and hold a Canadian PR. I received my COPR in October 2017 and made my first landing in January 2018. I have the following questions and I'd appreciate if anyone could help. 1. When does my 5 year period start? Is it from date of COPR or date of landing? 2. I have a job in the US and I am not sure if I can move to Canada before its >730 days from expiry of PR/COPR. Is there any chance that I could renew my PR card if I enter with less than 730 days? I read in some threads if I enter Canada with less than 730 days, I could renew my card if I stay for 2 years straight. But is it legal to stay in Canada with an expired PR card? 3. I also read that CBSA could flag you for less than 730 days at border. Why would they do that if my card is still valid? Is this a common practice? 4. I am trying to get an internal transfer from my company and for that to happen, it might take another year or more and when that happens I will have less than 730 days. If it happens will I be able to sponsor my child who is a US citizen with less than 730 days validity? If that is not possible, how can my child stay in Canada beyond 6 months (US citizens can stay upto 6 months in Canada I assume) Thanks in advance.
