Permanent residence immigration streams in Canada

1. Provincial Nominee Programs. The Provincial Nominee Programs are offered throughout Canada and provide applicants with many different ways to become permanent residents. Every program is different, with different requirements.

2. Family Class Immigration. If someone in your family or your spouse is a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada, they can apply to sponsor you. They will have to meet certain financial requirements to do so.

3. Skilled Worker Category. The Federal Skilled Worker Program has just re-opened to workers in certain occupations. If you work in one of these occupations and you meet other requirements relating to work experience, education and language proficiency, you could be eligible to immigrate under this program.

4. Business Immigration. The new Start-up visa for entrepreneurs offers a pathway to permanent residency in Canada, as do various investor and business visas.

5. Canadian Experience Class. The Canadian Experience Class program is for temporary residents (students and workers) who can use their language proficiency and work experience to become permanent residents.
