PERMANENT RESIDENCE VISA TO CANADA
Each year, Canada accepts between 200000 and 225000 immigrants, to meet the goals of economic benefit to Canada, family reunification, and humanitarian commitment.
If you want to immigrate to Canada, there are a few different ways to apply. These ways can be divided into the following categories:
- Skilled workers
- Quebec-selected skilled workers
- Canadian Experience Class
- Investors, entrepreneurs and self- employed persons
- Provincial nominees
- Family visa
- Refuge / Asylum Application
Successful applicants and holders of a Canadian immigrant visa become permanent residents of Canada. Permanent residents are entitled to live, work and study in Canada on a permanent basis.
Permanent residents can access Canada's unique government-funded health care, subsidized education, which is free for all students in public schools at the primary and secondary level, language training programs and assistance for finding employment. Additional benefits of Canadian permanent residence include eligibility for Canada Pension Plan Benefits, Old Age Security and Guaranteed Income Supplement and the option to participate in retirement plans such as Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSP). Together with the many freedoms associated with permanent residence is the ability to apply for Canadian citizenship.
