So you're a refugee in Canada and you want to return to your country you claimed refugee status from?

If you do so, and it is discovered, you will lose your refugee status in Canada.
I got my IMM 1000 landing paper after landing in Vancouver in 1996. I left Canada in 1997 and without applying for a Canada Permanent Resident (PR) Card.
In this regard, can I re-enter Canada by using my US Green Card and stay in Canada for two years so as to reinstate my residency by applying for a Canada PR Card after the fulfilment of 2years continues staying restriction?Thanks a lot!!
In my case I have two felonies in the United States, is it possible that I can still apply for Criminal Rehabilitation to enter Canada? My last felony was in April 2013 and I was deported in May 2010.

Sure, it is.

Given that it's two felonies you should wait until it's been 10 years since you've completed the last of your sentence. (Unless they would not be serious offences in Canada.)
