Default citizenship time calculation

Dear Experts,

I have lived in Canada for more than 3 years (>1095 days) within the last four years
immediately before today. I am going to apply for the citizenship. However, I found I
do not accumulate 3 years time in residence in canada in the 4 years immediately
before today if I follow the calculation method provided. Following is the details:

I first became PR on June 5, 1998 and stayed in Canada for 1 week. I left on June 12,
1988 with RRP and re-entered on August 10, 1999. If I applied today (Aug 15, 2002), I
have accumelated 3 years (1095 days) in the 4 years immediately before today
(8/15/1998-8/15/2002).

However, if I followed the calculation method provided, I am short of more than 2
months because they take the days before 4 years into account, that is they count the
two months absent between 6/12/1998 and 8/15/1998.

Which calculation is correct? The Citizenship Act requires a person to reside in
Canada 1095 days (3years) in the 4 years immediately before the date of the
application for citizen.

Should I count the two months absent between 6/12/98 and 8/15/98 in my calculation?
Should I submit my application?

Thanks for your great help in advance.

Sincerely yours,

Lily

If you have been in Canada since August 10, 1999, then you have 3 years of residency
and can apply.

Lily If you apply for citizenship on 15 Aug 2002, they only look back as far as 15
Aug 1998 for the purpose of counting the 1095 days.

Obviously, they may look back further to make sure you actually got and kept PR
status in the first place, but not for counting the 1095 days.
