Meeting Residency Requirements for Permanent Residents of Canada

Maintaining residency requirements is a critical aspect of maintaining one’s permanent resident status in Canada. Although most individuals may be aware of the general rule that a permanent resident must be physically present in Canada for at least two of each five year period, there is a lot of confusion surrounding the rules. This often results (often needlessly) in the loss of permanent resident status. Mark & Company can assist you in:

  • Assessing residency and how to deal with maintaining residency requirements

  • Applying for permanent resident cards

  • Applying for Travel documents (if you are outside of Canada)

Obtaining Canadian Citizenship

Mark & Company can assist clients in preparing their citizenship related applications. This includes:

  • Citizenship Applications (permanent residents applying for Canadian citizenship)

  • Citizenship Certificate Applications (individuals born outside of Canada to a Canadian parent)

  • Citizenship Applications for Adopted Children
