Permanent Residency Card Renewal on Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds
Permanent Residency Card Renewal Question
I have applied for my Permanent Residency Card Renewal but I do not have the required 2 years of Canadian residence. Please help me to apply on compassionate grounds as my wife and two children meet the requirements and I have also applied for Canadian citizenship and I work and study in Canada.
I had to go back to my home country as my in laws are old and needed medical attention due to heart problems. I also have property in Mississauga.
Applying for Permanent Residency Card Renewal
In cases where someone does not meet the residency requirements for Permanent Residency Card Renewal, you can still apply for a renewal on the basis of humanitarian and compassionate grounds. Since it seems your absence from Canada was due to your care needed for your relatives medical reasons, you may have a case. However, you should document your case by getting a letter from your relatives’ doctors confirming their condition and their need for care.
