Hello, I have a problem. I landed at the end of 2007, did all my papers as required, received my PR card and subscribed fro my medical card, then after 2 months I left back to my country of origin to finish up my obligations there. During my stay there I encountered family problems (sickness of parents) that forced me to stay more than those 183 days (about 210 days total). Five months ago the Quebec Regie de l'assurance maladie sent me a questionnaire asking when I was absent from Quebec, and I with all honesty answered that I was absent more than 183 days in the first 12 months, because of my family reasons. Today I received a letter from them stating that because of my absence back then, I don't have the right for the public health care plan and that I "did not establish residence in Quebec" (while I physically leave in Quebec for the last 3 years and so) and that I need to return them my medical card. I've applied for citizenship 3 months ago, will it be affected??? What should I do? Please advise. Thanks.
