    Posted: 29 Apr 2016 at 11:16am
I am in a dileama that I hope someone can answer for me. Me (canadian citizen) and my wife (canadian PR) moved to USA last year for a new job. However, since we are both still considered residents of Canada, I had to report US income and pay difference in tax, which was not a small amount. The only way to not report US income in Canada is to declare non-residency in Canada. 
My Question:
1) How can we declare non-residency in Canada? ie What forms to fill up?
2) Will my wife lose her PR card? Will she still be able to visit Canada once in a while?
3) What else will we (or have to) lose in the process? OHIP? Canada bank account? Memberships?
4) If we have to move back to Canada, how can get residency back?

Thanks in advance!

your wife will not lose PR status. Each day a permanent resident is outside of Canada accompanying a Canadian citizen spouse, it is deemed a day of physical presence in Canada.
