Canada Permanent Residence

In Canada, over 200,000 people are allowed every year to live in the country as a permanent resident. In order to be a PR, there is an application process to be done. After approval, the person will receive a PR (Permanent residency) card and is eligible to enjoy the rights just like other citizens of Canada (except a few).

Constant changes are being done in the immigration process of Canada. The process can be a bit complex if you are not taking help from Canada visas service providers.

Below mentioned are the category based on which, a person can apply for Canadian Permanent Residency

• Skilled Worker Class Immigration
• Business Class Immigration
• Provincial Nomination
• Family Class Immigration
• International Adoption
• Canadian Experience Class (CEC)


Skilled Worker Class Immigration

The individuals can also apply for PC to live permanently in Canada under the category of the skilled worker class. Under this category, the person is evaluated on eh basis of language ability, education, age, work experience, adaptability, and arranged employment. All these points are evaluated and then it is decided whether the candidate is capable or not. A score in between 0 to 100 is given and the minimum to apply for Canadian PR is 67.

The government of Canada also checks the criminal history of the candidate to determine the suitability. If a lady with fluent English, master’s degree no prearranges employment, no spouse living there, then she can easily get 70-80 marks and can easily apply for the PR.

Note: Your score may vary even if you pose all these mentioned factors, this is just an example.


Business Class Immigration

The business class individuals include:

• Investors
• Self-employed person
• Entrepreneurs
