The bad old days have passed, in one respect at least.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has removed the "conditional permanent residence". Formerly, if a Canadian permanent resident or citizen sponsored their partner for permanent residence, the sponsored person had to live with their partner for at least two years after becoming a PR. There were exceptions for folks who had children together.
But if you had a 'conditional PR' and your relationship ended, you could face being sent back to your country of origin.
There won't be 'conditional PR's' any more.
If you hold a conditional PR, and are concerned about it being enforced, make an appointment to discuss it with us.
