Obtaining permanent residence in Canada is an extremely difficult but very rewarding process. While permanent residents are not yet Canadian citizens, there are many different benefits and perks to being a permanent resident that other immigrants, such as temporary residents, cannot obtain. Become a Permanent Resident of Canada 5

There are several different ways to immigrate to Canada as a permanent resident and as a result, live and work in Canada permanently.

Permanent resident categories for Canada

1. Provincial Nominee Programs. Almost all of the Canadian provinces and territories offer Provincial Nominee Programs, which allow the province or territory to nominate their own immigrants for permanent residence. Each program is different.

2. Skilled Worker Category. Using a points system, immigrants are assessed based on their own skills and qualifications, from work experience to language ability.

3. Family Class Immigration. Under Family Class immigration, applicants can become permanent residents if their spouses or family members are already Canadian citizens or permanent residents and can sponsor them.

4. Business Immigration. There are several business, investor and entrepreneur visas available that can lead to permanent residency.

5. Canadian Experience Class. The Canadian Experience Class allows people in Canada on temporary visas to change to permanent residency based on their work experience and language abilities.
