Did You arrive in Canada as a temporary resident or permanent resident
Please note every day of physical presence as a Temporary Resident or Protected Person counts as a 0.5 day credit and you cannot be credited for any more than 365 days of Temporary Residence or time as a Protected Person. Therefore, in order to get the maximum 365 day credit you need to be physically present in Canada as a Temporary Resident or Protected Person for 730 or more days during your eligibility period.
