Default Applying for citizenship

Once I apply for Canadian Citizenship can I leave the country (Canada) while the citizenship application is being processed. And if I can leave the country while the citizenship application is being processed how often do I have to come back to Canada and for how long?

Did you search the forum or look in the Wiki before asking? There are loads of threads on the subject, and I'm pretty sure there is a Wiki article as well.

But yes, you can leave the country, although you'd have to return on very short notice twice.

I'm intrigued to know why every single thread you start is about how to get around the PR requirements, citizenship requirements, etc. Are you actually intending to live in Canada?

Its actually because my work requires me to travel around a lot out of Canada, and I need to be clear on the implications, but thanks for your replies.

How short is "short notice"?
