permenent residency status in Canada - david ingram expert cross border non-resident income tax help and preparation by five tax

if you lived in Canada with a perm. residency status, then moved out of the country for a period of years what is the usual 
protocol for moving back to Canada.
david ingram replies:
To maintain a Permanent Residence status in Canada you must
1.   Be physically present in Canada for 24 out of any 60 month period
2.   be working out of Canada for A Canadian Firm
3.   Be living out of Canada with a Canadian Citizen.
If any one of these three conditions have been met, you may renew your PR card and return to Canada.  
If NOT, you are considered to have abandoned your status and will have to reapply.

These are genuine educational seminars dealing with everything from how to buy a house to making your mortgage tax deductible to buying an RRSP to alternatives to RRSP accounts to estate planning.  So what started as 13 separate seminars has now evolved into 23 separate topics. 
ONE LADY CAME TO 53 separate seminars and her husband came to about 20 with her.
