The CPL is `kept valid with 1) A medical, every year for those under 40 and every 6 months for those over 40 2) there is a requirement for some flying as well.
Flying in another country will accomplish the flying . A medical must be done by a TC or other approved medical examiner. Transport will have a list of those approved in countries other than Canada.

BTW - You're asking a lot of Transport Canada if you think they will provide a written statement that binds their hands to anything! :eek:

Validity for the licence itself has been posted above. If you have one of the new photo licences then you have to renew it (the photo) every 5 years.
The vintage blue piece of paper is valid for as long as it is legible as far as I know...
According to the information given at the link below, the old paper licenses are no longer valid. Every licensed pilot needs to have the new booklet to exercise their privileges.
