If they haven’t renounced their permanent residence, their ETA applications will be rejected.

As of September 29, 2016, most travellers to Canada will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) before travelling to Canada.
You will be granted entry but likely only as long as your passport is valid. Given that you intend to leave before that, there shouldn’t be a problem.
If your question refers to travelling to Canada: Ghanaians need visitor visas to come to Canada. We don’t know why you’ve been granted an eTA because you’re not eligible for an eTA.
You need an eTA if you don’t have a valid eTA at the moment.
Global Entry is for entry into the United States, not Canada.
If you’re an American citizen, you do not need an eTA to travel to Canada.
If you’re a citizen of another country who has a Global Entry card due to frequent travel to the US, you need either an eTA or a visitor visa, depending upon your citizenship.
The eTA is electronically connected to your passport. If you applied for an eTA and it was approved, you have it.
An eTA is permission to travel to Canada. There is no obligation to show the eTA when leaving Canada or entering another country.
Unfortunately, the only way to find out whether or not your status was cancelled is to file applications for Verifications of Status (VOS). These applications normally take a really long time so what you need to do is to submit proof that you need the VOSs with your applications. Travel plans and proof that you cannot get your eTAs without the proof of no status would be the best thing.
You should be fine to leave and return as long as your eTA is still valid in addition to your IEC visa. Your IEC visa is for you to enter Canada, but your eTA is necessary to travel back to Canada by air.
You will need to renounce your permanent residency in order to get an eTA. Unless you have the contact information of a specific person at IRCC, emailing them may not get a response. Their phone number is 1-888-242-2100, but that phone number is not normally accessible from outside of Canada.
