Interested in Migrating from Mexico to Canada?

Canada has become an ideal haven for many immigrants, and migrating from Mexico to Canada provides benefits for many individuals seeking a safe, happy, and productive life. While the benefits may be worth pursuing, the application process contains many steps. Working with a good immigration lawyer can help you understand the requirements and complete what is necessary for you to become a Canadian citizen.

Advice for Aspiring Canadian Immigrants from Mexico

While Canada has a history of welcoming individuals from many nations, there are some traits that may be especially appealing. Canadian immigrants who have characteristics that will complement and enhance the surrounding community are looked upon favourably.

You may have an advantage in your quest to immigrate to Canada if you:

  • Speak French or English
  • Have special skills
  • Have unique work experience

There are other ways to immigrate legally, and your attorney can help you determine how you may qualify. You may request entry into Canada to be reunited with family members, as long as those family members are permanent residents themselves. Adoption is another way that you may migrate from Mexico to Canada.

Canadian Citizenship Benefits for Mexicans Who Want to Immigrate

You will have many rights when you become a citizen. This means that you will be viewed the same way under the law as other Canadian citizens. Some of these benefits include the right to:

  • reside permanently in Canada
  • work in Canada
  • receive a fair trial

Being recognized legally will also afford you protection against various discriminatory practices. The freedom to assemble peacefully will be another benefit. You will be able to express yourself freely according to the law as well. While being able to live in Canada temporarily may have some advantages, being a citizen may make you eligible for many more career and personal opportunities. As a citizen you will have the right to vote, and you may leave and enter the country without jeopardizing your status. This may be a welcome relief for you and your family, and your immigration attorney can help you understand all of the wonderful benefits that come with citizenship.

Canadian Citizenship Requirements

The citizenship requirements for most applicants are relatively clear. Immigrants who were adopted by Canadian citizens and children under the age of eighteen must meet different requirements. While there are restrictions regarding individuals with past criminal activity, a qualified applicant must be:

  • Eighteen years old or older
  • A permanent resident
  • A Canadian resident for three years or more

Being able to communicate in English or French will help your case and this sort of language proficiency may help you find employment as a new resident as well. Your application for citizenship will include being able to demonstrate your knowledge about Canada, and your language skills may make this portion of applying for citizenship easier to accomplish. The immigration process may be lengthy, but your lawyer can help you avoid any problems when coming to Canada from Mexico.
