I didn’t met with RO obligation due to family emergency in home country completed 500 days in five years .

I submitted hardship letters with documentary proof but got no response yet .What should I do if , I have to visit home country in emergency situation.
Obviously, if status to live in Canada is important to you, you should not leave Canada unless and until you have stayed long enough to be in compliance with the PR Residency Obligation.
It is not clear what procedure occurred attendant this: "IRcc issued me letter for sec 16 a , explanation of hardship not completing RO
," or how that is related to your experience with CBSA (not IRCC) attendant your return to Canada via the U.S. It is very possible that you need the assistance of a professional, or at least someone well-familiar with PR RO enforcement procedures, to go over the paperwork with you and determine for sure what is happening. SOONER, not later
You may very well need to lawyer-up if you want to keep Canadian status.
Too many possibilities to try addressing what might be happening or what is at stake. Main thing is if you are currently subject to Inadmissibility proceedings, that's serious and needs to be addressed appropriately and promptly. If you want to keep PR status.
Regarding Future Travel Abroad:
. I know. And sometimes this puts us in a box with no easy way out. Sometimes we are forced to make very tough decisions depending on what is more important, what our priorities are.
H&C relief is sometimes allowed PRs who have compelling reasons for remaining outside Canada so long they fail to comply with the PR RO. However, H&C is often denied PRs who believe they should be allowed this relief. It is tricky. There are NO guarantees.
You might already be in a battle to save your PR as is, without going abroad again.
Best chance to keep status in Canada is to STAY . . . stay and deal with whatever is currently in process.
If you anticipate having to leave again, but you really also want to save your PR status, really is time to LAWYER-UP.
