Default need your help Mr Miller in filling out PR application

3 questions!

I migrated to Canada back in Mar 2001
And over the last 2 years myself and my family have been travelling
back to my country of Citizenship.Neither myself nor my wife do not
work on Canada but I
go to a post secondary accredited educational institue . Over the last
2 years my absentism has been as follows 2001 dec-Mar 2002,
Oct2002-Nov2002 and
Feb2003 to April2003.

I generally go back because I still have alot of ties, investments and
assets/house etc in my country of orgin and gernerally leave around
winter.

1. My question is what do I put on the PR card as resaon for absence ?

On my last trip into Toronto I was questioned about working abroad and
why I should not be travelling so much if I dont work.(I guess he
wanted to know where my money was coming from to support ourselves
travelling back and forth)I was also questioned about how much money I
brought back into Canada..which was not much at that time.

2. Can I continue this travelling ? 3/4 months a year of out Canada
without
risking of losing my PR

3. Do I have to work in Canada to keep my status? as this was question
by the customs agent.

Thank you in advance

You must reside in Canada for at least 730 days (2 years) in every 5-years
period to keep your PR status.

How does a permanent resident prove meeting residency obligations (2
years residency) when asked if no employment and tax filed before?
Thanks.

Residence rent/lease agreement, utility bills (phone, cable, hydro, etc.),
credit and debit cards use in Canada in claimed periods - just to name a
few. If someone resides in Canada then there is always a rather substantial
paper trail to prove it.
