  • You have one day to go before your work holiday
    to Canada comes to a close. You really want to
    stay and set up shop in the beautiful North
    American country but you simply cant. Reason?
    Your visa will expire in a few hours. You have no
    option but to jump on that plane back to home and
    regrettably so, you do just that.
  • What a dilemma!
  • The good news is, you can actually live and work
    in Canada for as long as you please. If youve
    been keen on following immigration news, you know
    Canada has been trending for all the right
    reasons. Just last year, it announced through its
    Immigration minister, Ahmed Hussen, that the
    country plans on taking in 1,080,000 new
    permanent residents (PR) between the years of
    2019 and 2021. If you want to migrate to Canada,
    take advantage of this generosity while it lasts.
  • Like any other country in the world, you cant
    just show up in Canada without having the right
    documents that give you a right to stay there.
    Ideally, you need a visa, PR car, or citizenship.
    Here, we have explained each of them in detail

What Does Canada Have To Offer Skilled
Immigrants, Businessmen, And Students?
  • Canada is no doubt an ideal place to live and
    work not just for its beauty but its big heart
    for skilled workers, students, and businessmen.
    While all other third world countries are busy
    tightening their immigration rules to reduce
    immigration flows to their countries, Canada is
    opening its wings further to accommodate as many
    immigrants as possible.
  • The three categories of immigrants Canada loves
    include the following
  • Skilled Workers There are thousands of
    employment opportunities for foreign skilled
    workers across Canadian provinces and industries.
    This has been largely contributed by the shortage
    of skilled workers in the country especially in
    engineering, the service sector, engineering,
    healthcare, and IT. The Canadian Federal
    Government has classified the skills in levels
    and invites workers to make applications through
    the Federal Skilled Worker branch of Express
    Entry and several other PNP avenues.

  • Investors and Businessmen To attract investment
    to the country, Canada also has tons of
    provisions for foreign businessmen and investors.
    Most of the successful immigrants through this
    avenue often receive permanent residency right
    from the start along with their families.
    However, the investors must make certain
    investments to Canada and meet basic criteria
    before being handed the PR card or business
  • Students Apart from skilled workers and
    businessmen, Canada also has opportunities for
    students looking to be a part of Canadas
    world-class school system. Recently, the Canadian
    government promised to make immigration rules for
    student less stringent in the coming days to help
    students get citizenship and PR in Canada.

What Gives You Access To Canada?
  • Lets talk about the visa, PR, and citizenship
  • Visa
  • A Canadian visa is what is given to most
    immigrants before they become permanent residents
    or naturalized citizens. They are grouped into
    two categories namely
  • Temporary Canadian Visas These visas are given
    to immigrants to allow them to stay in Canada for
    a limited amount of time. The purposes range from
    working, studying, studying, visiting relatives,
    and tourism.
  • Permanent Canadian Visas These allow the holder
    to permanently relocate to Canada and be on a
    path to Canadian Citizenship.
  • Here is a detailed description of each of the

  • Temporary Visas
  • As mentioned before, these allow the holder to
    stay in Canada for a specified amount of time as
    determined by the Canadian Consulate or the BSO.
    Temporary visas are valid up to 6 months and can
    be single entry or multiples entry.
  • As the name suggests, single entry visas only
    allow the holder to visit Canada only once, for 6
    months after which they will be required to go
    back home. Multiple entry visas, on the other
    hand, allows the holder to visit Canada as long
    as they please until the expiry of the visa.
  • Under the temporary visa category, there are two
  • a. Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) which has the
    following subcategories
  • Tourist Visa
  • Courtesy Visa
  • Diplomatic and Official Visa
  • Facilitation Visa

  • Super Visa
  • Business Persons and Business Delegations Visa
  • Organ Donors Visa
  • People hoping to give birth in Canada
  • b. Other Temporary Visas
  • Student Visa
  • Temporary Foreign Workers
  • Temporary Resident Permit
  • Working Holiday Visa

  • Permanent Canadian Visas
  • You apply for a permanent visa, also known as an
    immigrant visa if you want to permanently settle
    in Canada. Under this category, there are the
    following types
  • a. Express Entry Visas This is an electronic
    immigration system that allows people from all
    nations to migrate to Canada based on their
    skills. The Canadian Experience Class, Provincial
    Nomination Programs (PNP), Federal Skilled Worker
    Program (FSWP), and Federal Skilled Trades
    Program (FSTP) are part of this program.
  • b. Business Immigrant Visa This visa is given to
    businessmen and investors. The visas in this
    category include
  • Entrepreneur Program
  • Self-employed Persons Program
  • Immigrant Investor Program

  • c. Other Canadian Permanent Visas
  • Quebec-Selected Skilled Worker Program (QSWP)
  • Live-in Caregiver Program (LCP)
  • Family-Sponsorship Program

  • Permanent residency
  • A permanent residency card is the next best thing
    after a permanent Canadian Visa for many
  • a. Overview of the PR status
  • In essence, if you have a PR card, you can enjoy
    almost all the rights enjoyed by Canadian
    citizens. These include the following
  • The right to work, study and live anywhere in
  • The right to apply for citizenship in Canada
  • Right to protection under the Canadian law and
    the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms
  • Access to the benefits enjoyed by Canadian
    Citizens including medical insurance

  • Along with all the benefits above, you must share
    in the responsibilities of any other Canadian
    citizen. These include abiding by Canadian laws
    and paying taxes. Obviously, you cant cast
    political votes or run for office neither can you
    hold a certain high-level government position. In
    addition, Canadian permanent residents, cannot be
    given Canadian passports. If they wish to travel
    outside of Canada, they can use their passport
    from their citizenship country, Permanent
    Resident Travel Document (PRTD), or a valid PR
  • b. Living outside of Canada as a PR
  • Permanent residents can live and work outside of
    Canada as long as they have fulfilled the
    requirement that claims they must live in Canada
    for at least two years during a five-year period.
    However, if you stay too long outside of Canada,
    you can lose your PR status.
  • There are only a few exceptions to this. One is
    being away on the grounds that you are
    accompanying a common-law partner, spouse, or
    partner who already has Canadian citizenship. The
    second one is if you are outside Canada on a work
    trip for a Canadian business

  • c. How to become a permanent resident in Canada
  • There are five ways you can obtain a Canadian
    permanent residency. These have been grouped
    according to the various Canada immigration
  • Express Entry Category
  • Canadian Experience Class
  • Business Immigration
  • Family Class Immigration
  • Provincial Nominee Programs
  • Before you apply for a Canadian PR, you should
    keep in mind that the validity of the PR card is
    usually 5 years. In certain circumstances, it can
    only be valid for one year instead. Also,
    although Canada sends out PR cards to addresses
    within the country, sometimes, you will be called
    in person to pick yours up at the Canadian
    government offices.

  • Canadian Citizenship
  • The dream of virtually every immigrant to Canada
    if to finally become a neutralized Canadian
    citizen. Permanent residency is great but it must
    be maintained. You have to keep renewing your
    status every five years. Then theres always the
    looming fact that you can easily lose your
    residency status at any time.
  • a. Benefits of being a Canadian citizen
  • In a nutshell, here are the benefits that
    Canadian citizens have over permanent residents
  • Voting rights
  • Better protection in terms of losing their right
    to be in Canada. No matter how long, you have
    lived in Canada, you can be deported back to your
    country of citizenship is need be.
  • A chance at having a Canadian passport
  • Having ones children born outside of Canada
    qualify as Canadian citizens by birth.

  • b. The application process
  • As you might have guessed, applying for Canadian
    citizenship is anything but easy. You have to
    jump too many loops before the all-important
    document is placed on your hand. Some of the
    requirements of becoming a Canadian citizen
    include the following
  • Evidence of your ability to read and write in
    either English or French
  • Have resided in Canada for at least 1,095 for the
    last five years before making the application
  • Must be already a permanent resident (PR)
  • Have your tax returns for a minimum of 3 years
    during the last 5 years without any income debt

  • c. Additional information
  • There are a few things to know before making an
    application. These are
  • Unlike the United States, marrying a Canadian
    citizen doesnt automatically make you a Canadian
  • You cannot become a Canadian citizen if you are
    in prison, have recently served time, is on
    probation or parole, have been charged or
    convicted of a crime or serving a conditional
    sentence. Also if you have a deportation order,
    you cannot apply to become a neutralized Canadian
  • In a nutshell, you can migrate to Canada via
    three different paths visa, permanent residency,
    and citizenship. Often, you will begin with a
    visa then hopefully move to a PR status and if
    you are lucky enough, become a neutralized
    Canadian citizen.
  • The last category lets you access all the
    benefits and rights of any other Canadian citizen
    by birth say for a few things like not being
    given a Canadian birth certificate. Permanent
    residents also enjoy quite a number of benefits
    except they cant run for office or vote, be
    given a Canadian passport or work in
    high-security government jobs.
