I have not met the residency obligations and stayed in Canada for about 2-3 months in the past 5 years while I was a minor. The PR expired in February 2019 and I turned 18 in June 2019. I want to pursue my studies in Canada from January 2020 onwards. I have a few questions: 1. Should I apply to the universities as a PR or an international student? 2. Should I apply for a PRTD and then travel to Canada or is it better to go via the US land border ? 3.Can I get admission to a college/university with an expired PR card? 4. If I have to renounce my PR status, how much time will that take ?
