I lived in Canada for 31 years. I have had to spend time in UK due to a traumatic personal issue. I have met my PR requirements in order to renew my PR card in January, 2017. My new PR card expires on August 28, 2022. I had to leave Canada again on January 24, 2017 to continue with personal matter. I am now very scared as do not want to lose my PR status. When must I return to Canada to prevent losing my status. As my card expires on August 28, 2022, does that mean I can safely return up until August 2020 and then remain in Canada permanently? I just do not want to lose my PR status. I did apply for Citizenship in 2013 but the documents never arrived. As I am in middle of a historical abuse case, it is just another stress I do not need. Will I lose my status if I am not back in time?
