Default For the absence from canada, but can still satisfied with the 2/5

Hi, all:

Yes, coz of no professional job in canada and I do not wanna spend my
time in doing labour job. I have been absent from canada since the July
of 2001. Of course, during the 2 years, I also returned canada and
live for months. I am planing returning canada next year, because at
that moment, to satisfy the 2/5 years rule, I must live in canada since
then.

But coz of absence from canada, I am not sure it's OK or not, anybody
has experience and ideas?
Thx.

Yes. It depends when you landed.
1. If you landed in July 2001 and left immediately, they will probably
investigate you.
2. If you landed in July 2001 and stayed a few months or came back and
stayed a few months after leaving then you will probably be OK but you
will have to remain at least 2 years less the months you have already
spent in Canada.
3. If you landed much before July 2001 and have been outside all this
time then residence has been lost so forget it.

In two out of three cases (1 & 3) you will have issues because you
have cut it too tight.
If you happen to fall under the other case (2) then you will be
"forced" to stay in Canada for much of the next two years to maitain
residence. If that is the case, then why not stay the other year and
just get citizenship?

So, if you don't want to live in Canada doing what you consider to be a
menial job, why don't you just surrender your residency status since you
don't want to be resident, anyway?

The funny thing is that most *quality* immigrants have no problems
starting out at the bottom and working their way to the top. In my own
case, I left a nice government job in my home country and started off in
Canada as a security guard for 25c/hr above minimum wage...which at the time
meant I was getting just $6/hr.

I worked myself up the ladder, having given myself a goal to be long
gone from the security position by the time my first Canadian anniversary
came around and am quite happy with where I am now...and am still moving on.

If you're resident in another country, regardless of the '2/5 rule',
your PR status in Canada is void. The 2/5 rule only applies if you're not
resident in another country. In your case, you are resident elsewhere
because in your own words, you 'do not wanna spend your time in doing labour
job'.
