I am a US citizen, and recently accepted a healthcare job in Canada to start this summer. This is a permanent job and I plan to stay in Canada and not return to the US. I began looking at Express Entry, and I realized that my old Canadian permanent residency from when I lived in Canada as a child apparently never expires. I am out of compliance for residency, of course, and now neither I nor my employer are sure what this means for my Express Entry application and provincial nomination. I am set to start the application, however, will I be halted due to having old PR status? Will they even know (or care)? Should I go for a work permit and then in a couple of years get a new PR card once I have met residency requirements? (That would save me a lot of paperwork.) Does it need to be revoked and how long does that take? This is all so time sensitive, so I want to do the right thing. Thank you for reading.
