According to Canadian Visa Expert, you may travel outside of Canada for long periods of time (for example, on a business trip or vacation), but you must be physically present in Canada at least two years during a five-year period and must also have a valid Permanent Resident Card or Permanent Resident Travel Document in order to re-enter Canada.
