Keeping your permanent residence

People in Canada who are Permanent Residents (PRs) have to follow the required rules in order to keep their permanent residency, which include:

  • avoiding convictions for the most serious criminal charges;

  • staying in Canada for the required amount of time to keep your PR status active; and

  • not making any statements that are seen by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada or Canada Border Services Agency as trying to dishonestly gain any immigration status under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act for yourself or anyone else

If you are a permanent resident and receive a letter from a Canadian immigration officer, asking you to come in for an interview, due to concerns they have about your "admissibility" as a result of information you provided to them or from their own records they have about you, it will be important to obtain assistance through the process. Asaf can assist you with such matters.
