So, unfortunately, you will not find clear-cut guidance. A couple of years ago, there seemed to be an attempt to harmonize the PR rules with the "physical presence rules" of citizenship, but I don't think that is true at this time. Here's all that you have to go by : https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/corporate/publications-manuals/operational-bulletins-manuals/permanent-residence/economic-classes/experience/qualifying-work-experience.html "An allowance for a reasonable period of vacation time will generally be made in calculating the period of qualifying work experience (e.g., a two-week period of paid vacation leave within a given 52-week period in which the applicant was engaged in qualifying work experience). An allowance for normal vacation time during a period of qualifying work experience cannot be used as a substitute or proxy for meeting the in-Canada element of the work experience requirement (i.e., work experience obtained outside Canada will not be considered as though the applicant had been on a period of vacation in order to be counted as part of the period of in-Canada work experience). While officers will account for a reasonable period of vacation time in calculating the period of qualifying work experience in Canada, each application is considered on its own merits with a final decision based on a review of all the information available to the officer at the time of decision." So, this seems to suggest that work experience must physically take place inside Canada, but it is also specifically addressing people who work outside Canada and claim it as "vacation" to meet the one year requirement. It also says it will be considered on a case-by-case basis.I think if you wanted to spend 2 months in your home country working remotely, that would not count. But in your case, you clearly have international travel responsibilities as part of your job duties, I think it would probably be accepted. Many people have posted about having their international business trips accepted. If you can afford to wait 2 an extra two months, that is one way to be certain you meet the requirement.
