Perhaps you would get more response if this was moved to the trucking forum. Doubtless a Mod will move it for you in due course.

But you don't have PR any longer unless you have lived in Canada for 2 years out of the 5 since you landed - you said you had to land by September 2010; you would have needed to move to Canada by September 2013, at the very latest, in order to retain PR status but it would appear from your posts that you are still in the UK.
