Canada offers a robust immigration system which accounts for many different situations. This comprehensive approach to immigration facilitates a variety of options for immigrants who wish to come to Canada either temporarily or on a permanent basis. As such, Canada has a number of options that may be suitable for you depending on your situation. Below are the core applications types or ways that you can come to Canada.
Temporary Resident Visa (TRV)
More commonly referred to as the visitor visa, the Temporary Resident Visa allows entry into Canada for those who come from countries which are not visa exempt. Not everyone will require this visa depending on your citizenship. A TRV opens Canada's borders to you for a temporary amount of time and allows you to enjoy what Canada has to offer. Whether you are sightseeing or visiting family, a Temporary Resident Visa is one way to get your foot in the door.
Federal Skilled Worker
The Federal Skilled worker application is aimed at facilitating the permanent residence of foreign skilled workers. In order to qualify for this program, you must meet basic requirements such as education, work experience and language proficiency. If you are successful in this application, you and your family will be able to become permanent residents of Canada.
Federal Skilled Trades
Like the federal skilled worker category, this application is geared towards foreign skilled trades people. To be eligible, aside from meeting the basic minimum requirements, you must have a valid job offer in Canada and meet the licensing requirements of your specific trade in Canada. This is a permanent matter which would result in you and your family, if applicable, obtaining your status.
Canadian Experience Class
The Canadian Experience Class facilitates the permanent resident status of those who have already obtained valuable work experience in Canada. If you are working in an eligible occupation for a valid employer for at least one year, you will be eligible to obtain your permanent resident status in Canada based on this. You will also be able to sponsor your family on this application.
A work permit is an excellent way to begin gaining valuable experience in Canada and can lead to permanent status through the Canadian Experience Class. You will first need to find an employer in Canada who is will to obtain a Labour Market Opinion for you. You will use this to obtain your work permit. This is a temporary matter that can potentially lead to permanent status depending on your occupation.
In order to take advantage of the Canadian education system, one that is well recognized around the world, you will first need to obtain a Study Permit depending on the length of your intended study. You will also need to obtain acceptance to an eligible post-secondary institution in Canada. A Study Permit can also lead to working in Canada, with an off campus work permit or post graduate work permit. This can also even lead to permanent resident status through the Canadian Experience Class application.
One of the most popular and fundamental categories of permanent residence is the sponsorship category. Canadian citizens and permanent residents are able to sponsor their loved ones (spouse, common law or conjugal partners) from abroad or inside Canada for permanent Resident status.
