Canada has the largest and most accessible legal Immigration system of any other Western developed country, which at the same time, is very transparent and structured. As an applicant, you will know exactly what is required of you in order to be able to guarantee success for yourself. In the course of the last 25 years, the Federal Government of Canada has been granting 200,000 – 265, 000 permanent residence visas, annually.
Precisely as its name indicates, the status of permanent residency is issued permanently and one can live and work legally in any part of Canada. Permanent resident status may be maintained as long as the prescribed physical residence requirements are met every five years. or after choosing to apply for Canadian citizenship, after residing in Canada at least three years (in the last four year period) as a permanent resident. In addition, this permanent resident status makes you eligible for Canadian citizenship.
Canada is one of the few developed countries that offers the opportunity to apply and qualify directly for permanent residence status, without the obligatory prerequisite of having a formal job offer from a Canadian employer, or the need to physically reside in Canada a certain period of time in order to be eligible to apply for permanent residency, (as is the case in many Western European countries including the vast majority of immigration systems in the world).
