Welcome to Canada – the Great White North! With its diverse culture, breathtaking landscapes, and great quality of life, Canada is an excellent choice if you want a fresh start. If you want to live here and build a life – home, career and family – a key first step is obtaining permanent residency.

There are various ways to achieve becoming a permanent resident in Canada. Read on as we walk you through the process of securing permanent residency in Canada.

Why Canada?

Before we delve into the immigration process, let’s take a moment to understand why Canada is such an attractive destination for so many who seek permanent residency.

Canada boasts a strong and stable economy, world-class healthcare and education systems, and a reputation for being one of the safest countries in the world. Additionally, its commitment to diversity and inclusion makes it a welcoming and inclusive society for people from all walks of life.

Understanding permanent residency

Permanent residency is the first step towards becoming a Canadian citizen. It grants you the right to live, work, or study anywhere in Canada. It also gives you access to social benefits such as healthcare. After meeting certain requirements, only permanent residents have the option to apply for Canadian citizenship.

The pathways to permanent residency in Canada

Canada offers several programs for obtaining permanent residency, catering to individuals with various skills, qualifications, and backgrounds. Here are just a few of the programs Eastman Immigration Law specializes in guiding clients through:

  1. Express Entry System: This points-based system evaluates candidates based on factors such as age, education, work experience, and language proficiency. There are three programs under this umbrella:
    • Canadian Experience Class: This is a great pathway for individuals with Canadian work experience.
    • Federal Skilled Worker Program: For skilled workers who have work experience.
    • Federal Skilled Trades Program: For skilled workers who have qualifications in a skilled trade
  2. Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs): Each Canadian province and territory has its own PNP, which nominates individuals who meet specific criteria for permanent residency.
  3. Family Sponsorship: If you have a close relative who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, they may be able to sponsor you for permanent residency.

We can help you professionally prepare and submit a complete and comprehensive permanent resident application to increase your chances of receiving your permanent residency.
