My Canadian Permanent Residency Card expired about 7 years ago and I have not been to Canada in the last 10 years. I have received an ITA for Express entry and accepted the ITA. I assumed that I was no longer a Permanent Resident given that I have not fulfilled the residency requirements. Will there be a problem if submit my application for PR?

Actually there could be an issue. It depends whether or not you are still a permanent resident. If you never relinquished your status or had your status revoked, you are still a PR. This may be discovered during the application process. Not sure exactly what will happent then. You should contact a lawyer or Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC) to find out what to do.

I’m Raghesh from India. We ( Myself, my spouse n kids) received Canadian PR this month. The expiry date of the same is 20 September 2017. My PR was through Saskatchewan PNP. My plan is to land in Toronto with my family by first week of September 2017. From there I’ll travel to Saskatchewan alone, while my Spouse n kids will fly back to India. They will join me back once I manage to get a good job. So my query is that at, Port of entry immigration point, do I need to show the tickets of Toronto to Saskatchewan journey for the whole family. Or can I show my Saskatchewan ticket n the return tickets of my family (to India) and tell the truth?

You should tell the truth.

When you do, you and your family can expect questions about how long they plan on returning to India for.

Marriage will not affect your Express Entry application.

Once you are married, you can be sponsored. But you cannot remain a diplomat for a foreign country and be a permanent resident at the same time.

Hi, I am currently on a work permit tied to my company and got laid off. I’m applying for a permanent residence (waiting for an invitation) and plan to go back to my home country (France) once I send the complete application. I would still have an address in Canada. Will this situation be problematic? Will I still be able to get my residence?

If you qualify to immigrate through FSW or CEC it doesn’t matter where you are physically, as long as you have legal status there. So it shouldn’t matter.

You can apply for a visitor visa to travel back to the country. (If you are driving to and from the US, you don’t need to do this.) You should apply for a bridging work permit so that you can work between when your work permit expires and when you get your PR.

I am a US citizen wanting to marry my bf who is on a work permit in Canada. What is the procedure for this and approximately how long will the whole process take? Can i live in canada or will i need to reside in the US? Can i work or take classes in Canada while our paperwork is pending?

You can marry your boyfriend in Canada or the US.

Once you are married you can apply for an open work permit to work along side your husband in Canada.

Once he qualifies to apply for PR, you can be part of the application. (Alternatively, if you qualify for PR first, he can be on your application.)

He can’t sponsor you yet, he’s not a permanent resident.
