Yes, you should reside in Canada for at least 2 years in the 5 years span. It is a great idea to keep a record of the time you reside or go outside Canada. For instance, while going to the US by car, you can get gas from the other side of the border as a record. Or in another case, you will get your passport stamped as proof of travel. The idea is to have all the dates handy when you were and were not in Canada.
