@avj, @sidy For any applications sent in after October 11, 2017, any day where you’re present in Canada for any time counts for physical presence.
- Absences will be calculated only for days where an applicant spent no time at all in Canada. Dates where an applicant left Canada, or returned to Canada will not be counted as an absence since the applicant was physically present in Canada for a portion of both days.
It’s from the same link you posted, but in the section on " Calculating physical presence for applications received on or after October 11, 2017"
That said, this is immigration law, and things do change, so it’s worth looking into the exact definitions from time to time.
