Learning Objectives: 

“The law requires permanent residents to be physically present in Canada for at least 730 days out of every five years. If a permanent resident is outside Canada and a visa officer with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) finds that he or she has not met this residency obligation, the person may lose permanent resident status. The permanent resident may appeal the CIC decision.” (IRB)

If a permanent resident is outside Canada or in-land and a visa officer (also outside Canada) or Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) finds that he or she has not met this residency obligation, the person may lose permanent resident status. The permanent resident may appeal the CIC decision to the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB).

Either way, a member (decision maker) will hear the appeal according to the IRB tribunal process. The appeal process involves two parties: the appellant and Minister's counsel who represents CIC.

Other than proving physical presence in Canada, there are ways to seek remedies by applying some other serious factors such as HNC grounds, avoiding section 44 reporting, etc. 

In these serious matters it is important for appellants and legal professionals to marshal their representation and evidence with full force. This is possible only if proper preparation and strategy in line with the law is in place.

This course class may assist attendees to assess their situation and form better strategy to seek desired results, or avail themselves of other options. This class will also prepare attendees for the full hearing presentation and process.
