Default PR card - how long before you have to move to Canada?

This may seem a strange question, but hubby is due out of the army in just over 3 years time. We are considering emmigrating to Alberta as a skilled worker after having spent a couple of years there. However, what I am a little worried about is if the PR comes through before he leaves the army (and looking at the processing times this seems highly unlikely) how long do we have to use it?

Cheers

Wozzie.

You have a year to land after the date of your medicals, but then you only need to be in Canada for two out of 5 years to maintain your status, so in theory you can land and leave and not come back for another three years after that, so in your case its all good.
