How to become a permanent resident in Canada

1. Provincial Nominee Programs. Provincial Nominee Programs allow different Canadian provinces and territories to nominate individuals to live and work in the province or territory.

2. Business Immigration. If you are self-employed, an entrepreneur or you have enough capital to make an investment in Canada, you could obtain permanent residency.

3. Canadian Experience Class. Individuals who are in Canada on work or study permits can use their experience in Canada as an advantage when applying for permanent residency. They must have the relevant work experience and language abilities.

4. Skilled Worker Category. Skilled workers with a certain amount of work experience, language ability, education and other credentials can apply for permanent residency under the Skilled Worker Program.

5. Family Class Immigration. Your spouse or close family members can apply to sponsor you to Canada if they are Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
