I'm a PR holders, I've landed with my family last November, me and my wife opened Canadian bank accounts then we left canada after a week and planning to move permanently after a year. Now we're living abroad and wire transfered some funds to our Canadian accounts so do we have to file taxes for this money or not since we're not yet living permanently in canada.

You should really minimize your banking activity in Canada until the year you want to move to limit any ties to Canada.
