This would be an option I agree, I have to admit I always found it strange that I didn't go through immigration when I left Canada. Also found it very strange when I applied for my PRTD that it was up to me to account for the days I'd spent in and out of Canada. One would assume that the immigration department would have a very simple way of checking. I guess notLeon said:I know they were planning on starting exit checks a couple of years ago. I haven't heard if they did yet but if they did, they would know in the future if somebody meets the RO or not and it should be simpler and faster to renew PR cards and issue travel documents.
