Default Preserving the Permanent Residence

Hi everyone,
Is this statement true for permanent residents?:

"When a permanent resident is outside of Canada for more than 183 days in any 12 month period, that person shall be deemed to have abandoned Canada as his or her place of permanent residence"

This was taken from this page:

http://www.immigration.ca/permres-preserving-false.asp

Therefore, cannot a permanent resident be outside of Canada for more than 183 days?

Isn't the 183 day rule the old law?

Thats old information, rules changed a long time ago. Go to the horses mouth Note there is no authoring date on the page. All in all, not a great advert for the lawyer concerned!

C.Singer (immigration.ca) website is known for outdated and often misleading information.

Never rely on any info stated on the above website or any third party website - rely only on info provided by official website of Citizenship and Immigration Canada here:

www.cic.gc.ca

Current law requires PR to be physically in Canada for at least 730 days in every 5 years period.
