Immigrate to Canada from Boston

Someone who permanently immigrates to Canada is called a permanent resident. Permanent residents in Canada have permanent resident cards, which are somewhat similar to the United States green card. This is a highly sought-after immigration status because permanent residents can live and work in Canada wherever they like while enjoying many benefits that Canada has to offer. 

However, becoming a permanent resident is not easy. While there are multiple different ways to become a permanent resident of Canada, you will want to discuss your options with a licensed immigration attorney to determine which option is best for you. Some of these options for obtaining permanent resident status in Canada include:

Skilled Worker Category: Workers in occupations that are in high demand across the country can apply as a Skilled Worker, but the application process is quite strict. Applicants must qualify based on a points system, which means that they are given points for meeting different criteria based on age, education level and work experience. If they have 67 out of 100 points, they are eligible.

Canadian Experience Class: International students and foreign workers who are already legally in Canada on temporary visas can apply for permanent resident status under the Canadian Experience Class. This is because with their experience in Canada along with the required work experience, they can demonstrate they fit in well in Canadian society and the labour market.

Family Class Category: Someone can immigrate to Canada as a permanent resident if they have another permanent resident or a Canadian citizen sponsor them. However, this sponsor must be a spouse or a very close relative as well as prove they can be financially responsible for the sponsored applicant to be considered under the family class immigration category for permanent residency in Canada.
