By law, permanent residents are required to spend at least 730 days in Canada in a 5-year period unless certain situations apply, such as when you are working for a Canadian company abroad or traveling abroad with your spouse who is a Canadian citizen. If you are a permanent resident who does not meet the above requirements, you may not be fulfilling your residency obligations.
It is possible for the Government of Canada to take away your permanent residency if you are not meeting your residency obligations. However, because Canada is a nation of laws, the government is not allowed to arbitrarily take away your permanent residency even though you have not met your residency obligations. Due process must be followed, in which case you will be afforded an opportunity to present your case as to why you did not meet your residency obligations.
If you are a permanent resident and you are worried that you might lose your status, do not panic. Contact us and let us discuss your situation, including how we can help you to keep your status.

Provincial Nomination Program (PNP)
The PNP is one of the most popular means of immigrating to Canada. Through the program, Canadian provinces attract skilled workers to meet their labour market needs.
The PNP program enables provinces to set criteria for intending immigrants in a way that meets the labour market and economic development needs of the provinces.
Once an applicant is selected or nominated for permanent residence by a province, such an applicant usually has more than enough points to immigrate to Canada.
For many applicants who are unable to achieve their goal of immigrating to Canada through other programs, the PNP provides a great opportunity.
