Permanent Residency a Green Card (officially known as a Permanent Resident Card allows you to live and work permanently in the USA, Canada. The steps you must take to apply for a Green Card will vary depending on your individual situation.
A Permanent Resident is free to travel in and out of Canada.
However, in order to comply with the residency obligations, he/she must accumulate two years of physical presence in Canada for every five-year period after they become a landed Permanent Resident (they have arrived in Canada).
An exception to this rule would only apply to any one of the following:
* The Permanently Residence is accompanying a Canadian-citizen spouse or common-law partner;
* The Permanently Residence is a child under 22 years of age, accompanying a Canadian-citizen parent;
* This is employed on a full-time basis by a Canadian business, the Public Service of Canada or the public service of a Canadian province; or
* The Permanent Resident is a child under 22 years of age, accompanying a permanent resident parent who is outside Canada and employed on a full-time basis by a Canadian business, the Public Service of Canada, or the public service of a Canadian province.
A Permanent Residence may lose his/her status if she/he fails to comply with the residency obligations. When a Permanent Resident fails to meet their residency obligations, a departure order may be issued.
This order requires that person to leave Canada. The decision to issue a departure order may be appealed to the IAD within 30 days of receiving the notification.
