Removal of Conditions

If you obtained your Legal Permanent Status through marriage and you were married for less than two years at the time of the grant, you will be issued Conditional Permanent Resident Status.

This means you will be issued a card valid for 2 years instead of 10 years. 90 days before your card expires you will need to submit an application to “remove conditions” and be issued your Legal Permanent Resident Status.

The documentation that you need to provide will vary; depending on whether you remain married, are separated, or divorced.
