How to immigrate to Canada
Do you want to immigrate to Canada? Canada is open for business, life, raising a family and more. There are many different ways you can immigrate to Canada. Immigrating to Canada generally falls into two categories: temporary residence and permanent residence. Permanent residence is when someone moves to Canada for good, while temporary residence is just that: temporary.
Ways of immigrating to Canada temporarily or permanently
People can immigrate to Canada temporarily using work permits, study permits or visitor visas. Some of these visas, such as work and study permits, can eventually become permanent residents under the right circumstances.
Permanent residency can be achieved one of several different ways:
Canada Experience Class: The Canadian Experience Class is for individuals who are already in Canada on work permits or study permits and who have certain types of work experience and language abilities. These individuals can use their time in Canada as an advantage when applying for permanent residency.
Family Class: If you have a family member or spouse who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, they can apply to sponsor you to Canada as a permanent resident. Sponsors have to meet specific financial requirements in order to do so.
Provincial Nominee Programs: People can immigrate to different provinces and territories in Canada based on their skills or personal situations, and they can apply to be nominated by the province or territory for permanent residence.
Business Immigration: Canada has a number of business immigration programs, including the new Start-Up Visa program for entrepreneurs.
Skilled Workers: Skilled Workers can immigrate to Canada using their own credentials based on an assessment of their work experience, age, language abilities and more.
