Permanent Residence in Canada

Do You Require Assistance for Gaining Permanent Residence in Canada?

Immigration is the legal procedure that allows you to become a permanent resident of Canada.

Once you obtain permanent residency, you will be issued a visa known as a Record of Landing. This allows you to work, live and study in the country on a permanent basis.

A Record of Landing will have an expiration date requiring you to enter Canada before your visa expires. If you don’t, you forfeit your right to become a permanent resident.

Canada does not issue a Green Card like the United States. Instead, it is known as a Permanent Resident Card.

Important Items to Consider Before Getting a ‘Canadian Green Card’

Permanent residence does not serve as temporary status in the same way as a Work Permit, Study Permit, or Visitor Visa.

These temporary visas limit your stay in Canada to an assigned period of time and restrict what you are able to do while within Canada.

Permanent residence, however, has limitations. As a permanent resident you are unable to carry a Canadian passport, and there are several residency restrictions that are imposed on you.

It is essential to think of a visa as fitting into several unique “immigration categories.” Each category represents a path for an applicant to be granted permanent residential status. The three main categories include:


Independent/Skilled Worker Category

Business Immigration

Family Class Immigration

Canadian Experience Class

If you want to immigrate to Canada, you must qualify for at least one of these categories.
