Default surrender the immigration visa and re-apply later

My family will land soon. Due to employment and family obligations, my
wife (she is not the principle applicant) is considering to surrender
the immigration visa this time.

1. Will she face any trouble if she enters Canada as visitor in
future?

2. If I sponsor her a few years later, is there any adverse effect
because she gave up in the first place?

Thanks in advance for comments and advices.

Why go through all that troubles? Unless there is something you are not
telling us.

She may land with all of you and then leave for up to 3 years. Is it enough
time for her to complete all her obligations abroad?

Thanks for your comment, Mr. Miller.

Yes, there is a tax issue. She doesn't want to pay tax for her income
in homeland before she can physically move to Canada. And she will
have a lump sum to get next year, and it is taxable if she lands with
us this time.

Not really. Being a PR from the immigration law perspective doesn't mean
that person is a resident for tax purposes. If your wife lands with you and
leaves without establishing residency (as defined in tax laws) then she will
not be a resident for tax purposes. And in such case any income earned
abroad will not be subject to Canadian taxes.

Thanks again, Mr. Miller. I know about the difference between the
meaning of resident in immigration and in tax purposes. The problem is
we (myself and the children) will land and stay in Canada. If only my
wife stays behind in homeland with PR status, since she has family
ties in Canada, how can she be exempted from paying tax? That's why we
are thinking to surrender her immigration visa. Can you advise me that
is giving up the visa a workable choice or not?
Thanks.

Your wife will not establish residence in Canada at all after landing. But
get opinion from Canadian tax advisor specializing in new immigrants and
cross-border taxation before you make any decision you may regret later.
