Permanent Residency Obligation appeal

Permanent resident status

If your application is successful, you and your family members will receive status as Permanent Residents of Canada. To keep your Permanent Resident status, you must have been in Canada for at least 730 days during the last 5 (five) years. These 730 days don’t need to be continuous. Some of your time abroad may count towards the 730 days. Some conditions will apply.

If you are a Permanent Resident who has been determined by an Immigration Officer to have not fulfilled their residency obligation, you can appeal that decision.

Please contact our office to find out if you are eligible to file an appeal.
