There Are No Residency Requirements To Stay A Citizen
As a Canadian citizen, you can get a Canadian passport. You can travel abroad for as long as you like and you will not lose your citizenship status, unlike Permanent Residents (PR).
If you are a PR, you must stay in Canada for 730 days (2 years) in any 5-year period to keep your PR status.
