Who Can Get Permanent Residence?
If you fall under any of the following categories, you may be able to apply for permanent residence:
1. Are You An Accomplished Entrepreneur and Wish to Open a Business in Canada?
Canada is always looking for investors who can work for the economic development of the country. If you are an entrepreneur and you are planning to establish a new business, you can get permanent residence in Canada. You must prove to the government of Canada your genuine intent of setting up a business through legal documents. Your net worth matters a lot, as it determines your ability to start up a business in a competitive country like Canada.
2. Are You a Skilled Worker?
You can also apply for permanent residence in Canada if you have worked and gained useful work experience in the last ten years in your home country. Many provinces in Canada are still looking for skilled workers, however their demands vary from province to province. The Federal Skilled Worker Program, has a list of 24 occupations which are considered high in demand. If you fall under this category, you can apply for immigration.
3. Do You Have a Relative in Canada?
If you have some close relatives in Canada who are prepared to sponsor you, you can file permanent residence. However, there are very limited relationships that are considered eligible in this category. If you are a spouse of a PR holder or a Canadian Citizen, you have high probability of achieving permanent residence in Canada. From 2011, the Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship route was closed. This is set to re-open January 2014.
Sponsoring your relative is a complex process and requires extensive documents. Both the sponsor and the immigrant need to prove not only their relationship, but also their ability to support themselves financially in Canada. It is advisable that if you want to achieve permanent residence in Canada under the Family Class, you should consult a firm who you feel comfortable handling your case.
4. Have You Ever Worked in Canada?
One aspect of concern for the government of Canada is that the applicants should be aware of the environment and should be adaptable so that they can easily establish themselves in the country. For the same reason, Canada expects applicants to have spent at least 1 years in the country before they can apply for immigration. If you have worked for a Canadian employer, you have a high chance of achieving permanent residence in Canada. Since you have worked in the labor market and know the policies, you have high likelihood of establishing yourself successfully.
Many students who graduate from a Canadian university apply for post graduate work permit and then after obtaining one year experience in their field, apply for immigration. This is a legal route for achieving permanent residence in Canada too.
