In reply:

1. If you remain in Canada without status, you are considered to be illegally in the
country. If Citizenship and Immigration Canada find out that you are illegally in
the country, they will issue you a removal order. If you do not comply with the
removal order, they will take steps to deport you. You may be held in custody
pending the deportation order. You will not qualify for Citizenship.

2. . The rule requires that you are physically present in Canada for 1,095 days in a
four year period. Each day that you reside in Canada prior to obtaining permanent
residence status will be counted as one half-day. For example, if you have spend
two years in Canada prior to landing, you will be credited with one year of

3. A principal applicant's spouse will also qualify for immigration, if the
principal applicant qualifies. If the dependent spouse is rendered inadmissible,
the principal applicant will also be rendered inadmissible.
