Default PR Card 1 or 5 years-Mr. Miller Please Help

I just read on this newsgroup and in the booklet information of the PR card
that the card may be issued for 5 years and in some cases for 1 year. On what
basis does CIC make that determination? What would my status qualify me as.
I landed 2 years ago, and came back to the US to finish the contract that I was
working on. I am from Peru. I have only made the move to Canada since 4
months ago (I am still moving some stuff from the US, but will be settled
finally there in 2 weeks); I don't know of a grantor that knows me there for
the past 2 years, so I will have to use a notary public. I have been
interviewing for jobs there for the past 3 months, but nothing is for sure yet.
In my situation, do you think that I might only be qulified for the 1-year
card or the 5-year.

Thank you for your help.

Normally PR Card is issued for 5 years, but under certain circumstances it
will only be issued for 1 year. Please read Section 54 of Regulations here:

However, one's residency obligations as a PR are unaffected by the
length of validity of the PR card, as far as I know.
