Get a Green Card For Canada

When someone legally immigrates to the United States, they obtain a green card and can remain in the United States permanently. Canada has a green card too, although it is not actually called a green card. Canada’s green card is called the permanent resident card, and it is given to legal permanent residents.

Just like a green card for the United States, obtaining a green card or permanent resident card for Canada is no easy task. It can take months or years, but once permanent resident status is achieved a permanent resident can have a great life in Canada as well as the opportunity to become a Canadian citizen later on.

Ways of obtaining permanent resident status in Canada

There are several different ways one can obtain permanent resident status in the United States. For example, if you have family members or a spouse who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, this can work in your favour because they may be eligible to sponsor you to Canada.

Or, if you have Canadian work experience, you speak English or French very well and have a high level of education, you may be eligible to immigrate to Canada under the Federal Skilled Worker Program.

Another way of immigrating to Canada is if you are already an international student in Canada or a temporary foreign worker. Canada has a special program called the Canadian Experience Program that will allow you to use your experience in the Canadian work force to apply for permanent residency.
