Canadian Immigration Lawyers In LA

Immigrating to Canada is a long-standing dream of many different people around the world. Our stable economy, low crime rates and high standard of living make us an ideal destination in which for people to live, work or raise their family. However, immigrating to Canada is not an easy process and the rules and regulations surrounding different immigration pathways are becoming stricter and more exclusive. 

There are two different types of immigration to Canada: Permanent residence in Canada and temporary residence in Canada.

Immigrate to Canada from Los Angeles

Someone who wants to visit Canada, work in Canada on a temporary basis or study in Canada can apply for a temporary visa such as a visitor visa, work visa or study visa. These types of visas are generally for a shorter period of time and the applicant must leave once these visas expire. However, under very specific circumstances some of these visas can lead to permanent residency.

Immigrants to Canada who live here permanently are called permanent residents, and a permanent resident in Canada is very similar to a green card holder in the United States. There are multiple pathways and immigration programs that can lead to permanent residency, depending on your situation.

For example, do you have a spouse that is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident? They could sponsor you for permanent residency under the Family Class Immigration Stream.

Are you a foreign student in Canada on a temporary study permit who also has work experience in Canada? You might be able to apply for permanent residence under the Canadian Experience Class program.

Other immigration streams include Provincial Nominee Programs, Humanitarian and Compassionate Applications, Investor or Business Immigration as well as the Skilled Worker Program.
