Questions and answers

  • If your permit is revoked pursuant to section 63 of the Immigration Act, you will lose all of your accrued residence time. This is because all your current and previous permissions are revoked.
  • If your refugee status ceases pursuant to section 37 of the Immigration Act, you will not lose the period of residence time you have accrued up until your permit expires. This means, for example, that previously accrued residence time can be counted in a future claim of permanent citizenship.
