Unable to move immediately

I am hoping I can get some clarity. We are supposed to land in June 2021. My husband still has a project he needs to complete before we leave. This might take 2 years or more. Is it possible to land and apply for PR Cards then leave Canada for 2 years? Then go back and settle permanently.

Yes. You should be able to do this.

Thank you Mary Jane. I am worried of losing our PR. If this can be done then I’m glad. Thank you.

I think the requirement is 730 days in Canada for the five year period after receiving your PR cards

Yes that sounds correct. So you can land to activate PR and then leave for an extended period of time.

Unfortunately  "soft landings" are Temporarily SUSPENDED due to Covid-19

I’m curious how they identify a soft landing unless the person states their intentions when they land. Once you leave the airport as a landed PR, the person could leave the country after the 2 weeks quarantine is complete. I doubt they would revoke the PR.

Hi @Jules

The IRCC stated people CANT land now, then leave and come back as ALWAYS

If PR land now it MUST be permanent

Just 1 of the MANY frustrating Covid rules like us with PR that CANT fly now to activate

We already left jobs, kids left school so just waiting

Interesting... I suppose the reality is that they still cannot stop the PR from leaving Canada a couple of weeks later after quarantine is complete. Having said that I would not be encouraging anyone to try and circumvent the guidance that has been published. 
 

It’s a tough one for sure.

This is possible (generally). Actually, this is exactly what I'm doing at the moment. I landed and activated my PR in September 2019 and have been back in SA since then. My PR card was sent to a friend's address and they managed to bring it with them to SA when they visited at the beginning of 2020. I plan to move permanently to Canada at the end of 2021.
