I have already read some threads posted by people who don't have or will not meet the most important residency obligation: being physically present in Canada for 730 days within 5 years to maintain permanent resident status. Well, this is also the case for me. I'm gonna explain my situation (trying to keep it as short and clear as possible) and would like to hear any opinions or advices (if there is still something that I can do do remain a permanent resident). I'm a citizen of Germany and became a permanent resident in July 2016. In July 2016 I spent 2 weeks of vacation in Canada to formally finish the process and then left without having a PR card. At that time I hadn't even applied for one. For personal reasons I was not able to move over to Canada within the next 3 years and when the deadline (I mean the date from which on I still had the chance to fulfill the 730 days requirement) got closer I applied for a Permanent Resident Travel Document (PRTD). That one was issued to me with no difficulties. I finally made it into Canada in July 2019 just a few days before the deadline. I really had planned to stay for good so I applied for a PR card. However, for familial reasons I could not stay as I had planned and left after 4 weeks with my application for PR card still in process. Two or three weeks later my friend from Canada (at whose place I was staying while in Canada) informed me that she had received my PR card and she sent it to my address in Germany via postal service. The card shows the following data: PR since: 24 Jul 16, Expiry: 27 Aug 2024. On October 31, 2019 I went to Canada again, but only stayed for 9 days. This was mainly because I wanted to check if the PR card works and if I could enter Canada without any difficulties. As far as I can say, that worked fine. On the first day after I had landed, I went to a Service Canada Center and applied for a social insurance number - with my PR card. The SIN was granted to me without hesitation. Now I was thinking about finally moving to Canada as soon as have sorted out all my stuff in Germany. However, to be honest, I don't think this would be 100 % legal. I mean, I cannot fulfill the residency obligation anymore, but on the other hand I have valid documents that grant me to legally enter Canada and legally work there (remember: PR card valid until Aug 2024). So, would it be fraud, if I would do so? What are the chances that government authorities are already aware of this? Would I constantly have to fear a removal order? If you guys have any opinion / advice on that I'd be glad to read it. Cheers.
