Canada Permanent Immigration

A Canadian permanent resident is somebody who has immigrated to Canada and has been authorized to live and work in Canada on a permanent basis. A permanent resident has many great rights and privileges such as free access to public education and the right to freely enter and exit Canada, but not as many as a Canadian citizen. For example, only a Canadian citizen has the right to vote or run for political office. However, a permanent resident who has lived in Canada for three years is eligible to apply for Canadian citizenship.

If you want to immigrate to Canada and become a permanent resident, you must meet the requirements of one of the following immigration categories:

  1. Canadian Experience Class
  2. Family Class Sponsorship
  3. Business Immigration
  4. Federal Skilled Workers
  5. Quebec Skilled Workers

Contact our office for an assessment of your eligibility to immigrate to Canada. We will determine the best category and course of action for you and make sure you fully understand your options!
