Canada is one of the best countries in the world to work, live and raise a family. If you are a foreign national who is interested in living in Canada on a temporary or permanent basis, you will have to follow specific immigration procedures. There are two main types of Canadian immigration: temporary residence in Canada and permanent residence in Canada.
When you choose to immigrate to Canada, there are two main types of Canadian visas: Permanent ones, and temporary ones.
Temporary residence in Canada applies to several different immigration categories, including visitor visas, work permits for people who want to work in Canada and have existing job offers from Canadian employers and finally, study permits for people who want to attend schools in Canada.
Of course, many people want to live in Canada on a permanent basis, and these types of immigrants are called permanent residents. They are not quite Canadian citizens, but Canadian permanent residents have many benefits that other immigrants do not get. There are multiple immigration streams that can lead to permanent residency in Canada, including but not limited to Provincial Nominee Programs, Humanitarian and Compassionate Applications, the Canadian Experience Class, Spousal Sponsorship, Family Sponsorship, Investor Class, Business Class and the Skilled Worker Program.
