Thousands Receive Permanent Residence in Canada Annually
Canada is a land of opportunity and thousands and thousands of people get their PR card status in Canada every single year. If fact, Canada has been increasing the numbers of successful applicants to over 280,000 people per year, and you have equal opportunity just like those people.
As a permanent resident, you receive great opportunities and benefits in Canada. Having a PR card allows you to live, work and study in Canada on a permanent basis. The PR Card is normally issued for 5 years and can be renewed.
As a permanent resident, you and your dependants have:
- The Right to receive most social benefits that Canadian citizens receive, including health care coverage.
- The Right to live, work or study anywhere in Canada.
- The Right to apply for Canadian citizenship after a period of residence.
- Protection under Canadian law and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
As a permanent resident, you also must pay taxes, and respect all Canadian laws at the federal, provincial and municipal levels.
How Do I Become a Permanent Resident of Canada?
There are a number of ways to obtain a Canadian PR. You should think about it in terms of “immigration categories”. Each category represents a legal means to obtain permanent resident status. Five main categories for Canadian Permanent Residence are:
- Express Entry Category
- Business Immigration
- Family Class Immigration
- Canadian Experience Class
- Provincial Nominee Programs
If you want to immigrate to Canada, you will have to qualify under at least one of these categories.
What Are Your Obligations?
Citizenship and Immigration Canada requires that permanent residents of Canada hold a valid permanent resident card if you wish to travel outside of Canada. You will need to meet the permanent residency requirements and renew your permanent residence card every five years.
Permanent residents who do not meet their residency obligations could lose permanent resident status.
