I have a question about this, because I think things have changed since last year. My PR Card is about to expire and I'm abroad. I haven't spent the 730 days required but I've been abroad accompanying my wife who's a Canadian Citizen. Last time I checked it was okay to be abroad with your spouse and I could renew my PR card provided I give evidence of still being with my wife. But now, I checked the obligations one more time before applying and it says that your spouse has to be either working for a Canadian Business or Canadian Government only. Is that something that changed since a couple of months or I'm mistaken? Can I apply even if she doesn't work for the government or Canadian business?
