I went back to India to wind up my business, took my kids out from boarding school and we all came to Canada for good in April I had to go back to India since my father was sick and was getting his treatment done there. As I'm the only son, I had to take care of him and used to visit my family in Canada only when I could get someone to take care of my father My mother is too old to take care of him.

Register Lost password. He works in a border city in the US. During the last 2. Until this moment he tried hard to get a Job in Canada so that he could give up his job in the US and live in Canada.
Although he is well qualified he did not get favorable responses to any of his job applications in Canada. Now his PR card is expiring in a few weeks and he may not be eligible for renewal of his Canadian PR status.
Therefore, he wants to relinquish his Canadian PR and continue to work in the US and keep visiting Canada overland using his US passport during weekends. Question: 1. Will he be able to relinquish his PR status in Canada when he visits Canada next time? Thanks in advance for your input.

Here is an excerpt, 7. Voluntary relinquishment of permanent resident status under IRPA The following section provides guidance on the procedures to follow in the limited circumstances in which a permanent resident may be allowed to relinquish status voluntarily. Person applying to enter or remain in Canada as a temporary resident and who does not meet the residency obligation As mentioned above, the officer must first determine if the person is a permanent resident or not.
If the person does not meet the residency obligation under A28 but still wishes to enter as a foreign national and clearly states the intention of relinquishing permanent resident status, the officer may write the A44 1 report, using the guidelines below.
A44 1 report and voluntary relinquishment Where a person does not meet the residency obligation, an A44 1 report should be prepared [A41 b for A28 cases]. Once a report is prepared, the provisions of R62 1 a take effect so that any time spent in Canada subsequent to the report will not count as days towards the residency obligation under A28 2 in the event the person rescinds their declaration within 30 days.
This procedure is not to be used in any situation where the person indicates at any time a desire to be considered a permanent resident, even if they subsequently maintain they no longer wish to be a permanent resident. The officer must first determine whether the person has fulfilled the residency obligation [A28].
The officer must personally provide counselling to the person on the significance of the declaration and should ensure that the person fully comprehends the content of the declaration.
The officer should further counsel the person to ensure that they understand that if they withdraw the declaration within 30 days, a departure order may be issued and they would have a right to appeal that order. During counselling, the officer must provide, in writing, the full CIC address where the person is to send the notice to withdraw relinquishment of permanent resident status.
The officer must clearly note on file that the person did not wish to produce evidence or submissions, or produced insufficient evidence or submissions to allow the officer to conclude that the person satisfies A28, despite non-compliance with residency obligations. Details of the evaluation of humanitarian and compassionate grounds can be found in section 7. If the 37 days pass without a withdrawal, the report may then be disposed of with code 14 no further action. A non-computer-based entry NCB with code 10 for relinquishment of status is to be entered when the A44 1 report disposition is entered.
It may be best and more helpful to try and contact the Citizenship and Immigration Canada CIC Call Centre directly for some information specific to your husband's situation. Your husband may also want to try from the US. We have had some of our users previously state that they have been able to contact CIC from abroad by dialing 1 Listen to the options to get to CIC.
Please note though that some have reported that it did not work for them or that it is no longer working. You may want to give it a try. If you do decide to call, let us know the outcome. Long distance charges will apply. I hope this information is helpful. Sam43 Posts: 2 Hello Anna Thanks. I appreciate your prompt and detailed reply. I will ask my husband to call the phone number you have provided. I will definitely get back to you with an update.

My family became Canadian citizen and they are living in Canada. I am in Oman and now my PR card has expired and wish to visit my family and in this regard like to voluntarily relinquish my PR status so that I can apply for visitor visa.
