Canada is very liberal in accepting immigration requests and so, is seen as one of the favourite destinations for those seeking Permanent Residency (PR). High employment rates and safe social setup are other reasons for applying. Permanent Residency takes the candidate one step closer to Canadian Citizenship. Permanent Residents can live, study and work in Canada and are covered under the Canadian Law and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom. They are also eligible for healthcare and other social welfare benefits under the Canadian Law.
Skilled Labourers, Quebec Skilled Worker Program, Investors, Entrepreneurs and Self-Employed, Family Sponsorship and Live-in Caregiver visa applicants are eligible to apply for PR.
