Default Urgent help Re; Travel on Expired PR card

Hi everyone,

I got my PR card in May 2007. I went back to UK with my wife ( who is a Canadian Citizen). We moved back to UK but she was living with me all the time. We travel between UK and Canada several times. I arrived into Canada in Jan 2013 along with my wife on expired PR card ( expired in May 2012). Immigration officer asked me few questions and was satisfied.

Since Jan 2013, I have been working full time in GTA and have bought a house. I now have to travel back to UK attend a course for a week and my wife will not be accompanying me this time. I have booked return tickets from Air Canada ( Toronto- London- Toronto).

My wife was living with me all along in UK (does this meet the residency obligation ?)
Because physically in Canada I have not spent 730 days hence I did not apply for PR renewal yet.

I will be flying in two weeks time, my question is:

1) Should I apply for PR renewal card before I fly ( do i need to submit the original expired PR card or photocopy?) I believe I will not get their response because the urgent processing time is 3-4 weeks. I am also worried that when I return to Toronto airport alone, will the officer put an objection because I will not be accompanied with my wife, secondly, will not have the expired PR card and no proof of renewal application

2) Should I fly back on expired PR card and upon return, provide the proof of my home bills and job in Canada?

3) I have also been told that it is best to apply after completing 730 days physically? Although I think that I have met the residency obligation by living with my Canadian spouse.

Please kindly help and reply back,

Thank You

If you have been living with your wife a Canadian citizen then you meet the residency obligation. Your problem is being allowed on the aircraft taking you to Canada.
How come you never renewed it when you were back in 2012?
