Permanent residents can lose their status if they don't meet the residency obligation. This means that they can't spend too much time outside Canada. The general rule is that over a period of 5 years, permanent residents must be in Canada for at least 2 years. That's the same as 730 days. The 730 days do not have to be one after the other. And part of a day counts as a full day.
In some situations, permanent residents can include time spent outside Canada. For example, they may be able to include time spent travelling with a spouse or partner who's a Canadian citizen.
A Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) is a special account you can use to save money for your child’s university, college, or trade school education.
You might get some tax benefits by saving money in this type of account. There are also rules you must follow to put money in the account.
Restitution means you pay money for the financial loss or property damage you caused when you committed a crime.
A restraining order is a court order that limits what a person can do in any way the family court thinks is appropriate to your situation. The order might limit where a person can go, or who they can contact or communicate with. For example, it can say one or more of these things:
- your partner cannot come within 500 metres of you and your children
- your partner cannot talk to or contact you or your children except through an agency or another person
- your partner cannot come within 500 metres of your home and work
