Default WIll I lose my PR status?


I wonder if anyone can advise? This is the situation.
1. I got my PR status and immediately... stayed in the UK For 2yrs 7 months!
2. Then I immigrated into Vancouver and...eventually found work - Phew!
3. Now, 15 months after landing, I'm being made redundant, but...
4. I have a job offer in Michigan, US (a long story).

5. To live in Windsor, ON and commute into the US several days a week would be very difficult, but if I did, so long as I still stayed overnights in Canada would I still be serving time in Canada to get to my 2 years in 5?
6. Silly question, but if I chose to live in Windsor but did B&B 2 days a week in the US, would that only count as 5 days per week in Canada or could I get away with it?
Thanks for reading this far
Cheers,
Mr Cheerful.

As long as you meet the 730 days in every 5 year cycle you will retain PR status.
Read this manual on how you lose or retain PR status.

You might, unless you get caught out!
