Immigration to Canada

Immigration to Canada is the process by which people migrate to Canada to reside in the country. The majority of these individuals become Canadian citizens.

Canadian immigration policies are still evolving. Over recent years, Citizenship and Immigration Canada, the department that deals with Immigration and Citizenship to Canada, has made significant changes to streamline the steady flow of immigrants. The changes included reduced professional categories for skilled immigration as well as caps for immigrants in various categories.

In Canada there are four categories of immigrants: family class, economic immigrants (skilled workers and business people) and others (humanitarian reasons).

There are other types of immigration, classed under different categories of visa:

Economic immigrants

Citizenship and Immigration Canada uses seven sub-categories of economic immigrants. The high-profile skilled worker principal applicants group comprised 19.8% of all immigration in 2005. Canada has also created a VIP Business Immigration Program which allows immigrants with sufficient business experience or management experience to receive the Permanent Residency in a shorter period than other types of immigrations. The Province of Quebec has a program called the Immigrant Investor Program.?

Family class

Under a government program, both citizens and permanent residents can sponsor family members to immigrate to Canada. Under Canadian nationality law an immigrant can apply for citizenship after living in Canada for 1095 days (3 years) in any 5-year period provided that they lived in Canada as a permanent resident for at least two of those years.

A foreign national wishing to enter Canada must obtain a temporary resident visa unless he or she is a citizen of one of the 51 eligible visa exempt countries. Every year, more than 35 million people visit Canada.

Canada plans to introduce an electronic travel authorization for visa-free eligible nationals in April 2015.

Dependent Visa

Visas are often granted on the basis of family ties in Canada. There are a number of different types of Australian family visas, including Contributory Parent visas and Spouse visas.

Permanent Visa Business Visa Student Visa

Permanent residency refers to a person's visa status: the person is allowed to reside indefinitely within a country of which he or she is not a citizen. A person with such status is known as a permanent resident.Person will be issued some sort of documentary evidence as legal proof of this status.

Foreign travelers going to other countries to conduct temporary business, for example business meetings and consultations, attending conventions and conferences, or negotiating contracts, need visitor visas unless they qualify for entry under the Visa Waiver Program.

Generally, students who wish to study in Foreign Countries must first obtain a visa, either a nonimmigrant visa for temporary stay, or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. Your course of study and the type of school you plan to attend determine the type of visa.
