Cancelling CR1 Visa

Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: Canada

Hi everyone,

I am new to this site and really need advice!

My husband the USC and I have been married since 2009 and finally completed the immigration process. My CR1 visa is expiring in October.

Due to unforseen circumstances I may not enter before the expiry.

Here are my questions:

What happens if I don't enter before it expires? Will I have to go through the whole process again or am I not allowed to reapply as I abandoned it in the first place? Do I have to notify NVC if I do not enter before expiry?

If I do POE and shortly afterwards need to go back to Canada what happens? I have heard that you can not be out of the country for more than a year in order to maintain your PR but what if return to work in Canada?

I'm very confused about what to do. After this long and taxing journey to not enter will be such a waste but I need to know what the repercussions are.

Any info or direction would be of great appreciation!
