Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

Are you in Canada now?

Customer
Hi

Debra, Expert

If you can wait in Canada without leaving you will be fine.

What you do is you apply for a new PR card when you can show that you have been inside of Canada for the 730 in the past five years before applying. Canada immigration will only go back 5 years so as long as you can wait it out and not leave Canada you will be fine.

Does that clarify the law?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.

Customer
As per my calculation I will complete my 730 days in august 2021 for which I will be needing to stay in canada for one whole year with expired pr card .
Practically I can stay till august 2021 but living in canada with expired pr will be ok ???
Customer
Is there any other way that can make my renewal at present .
We already stated at border agency on arrival in canada that I was unable to stay in Canada cuz of my father illness.
Plz do let me know

Yes you can stay in Canada as long as you want. But you cannot renew your card until you meet the requirements.

There is no way to renew the card until you meet the physical requirements unfortunately.

Customer
Plz let me know if I live in Canada for whole year with expired pr card will it effect my job switching or my son school admissions if needed during that period.

Debra, Expert

Yes. I have already said this several times. You can continue to live and work etc in Canada.

You just cannot leave.

If you remain you will apply when you will be eligible to get the PR card renewed.
