Canadian Immigration Laws: Permanent Residence Status

Obtaining "permanent resident status of Canada" is also known as "Immigration to Canada" or becoming a "landed immigrant of Canada". The successful end result of the Canada Immigration Application process is the issuance of a Canada immigrant visa, which confers permanent status upon the applicant who, as a permanent resident, will enjoy all the same rights and privileges as those of a Canadian citizen (i.e. free health care, free elementary and secondary education, subsidized post-secondary education, the right to work in Canada) with just a few exceptions.

Unlike Canadian citizens,

  1. a permanent resident cannot vote;
  2. a permanent resident cannot hold a Canadian passport; and
  3. a permanent resident can be deported for certain criminal convictions.

A Canadian permanent resident becomes eligible to apply for Canadian Citizenship after residing in Canada for at least a total of 1,095 days within any consecutive four (4) year period following the receipt of Canadian Permanent Residence. After obtaining Canadian Citizenship, you may apply for a Canadian passport.

In accordance with the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act of Canada, a permanent resident must reside in Canada for a minimum of 730 days within the five (5) years prior to the expiration date on their Permanent Resident Card to be eligible for card renewal, with some exceptions.

Individuals who have been issued a Canadian immigrant visa must present themselves to a Canada Immigration officer at one of the official ports of entry in order to become a permanent resident..

To qualify as a permanent resident of Canada, you must meet the requirements of one (1) of five (5) Immigration classes: the Federal Skilled Worker Class, the Federal Skilled Trades Class, the Canadian Experience Class, the Family Class, the Business Class, or qualify as a provincial nominee.
