Default giving up on PR status

Hi,
I am a Canadian permanent resident and currently I don't have any problem with residency obligations, as I have been staying in Canada for more than 2 years within a 5 year period.
To give up Canadian permanent resident status I have to spend at least 3 years in a foreign country, but I don't want to wait that long. Is there anyway I can give up my Canadian PR right away? thanks

Leave the country. If you've left the country does it really matter?

I thought you were moving to Alberta - which is not (quite) a foreign country.

You can leave the country and make a formal declaration to the nearest Canadian visa office that you are giving up your resident status.
