Canada Permanent Resident Visa

Canada is one of the most favoured destinations to migrate. Every year, over 250,000 immigrants from across the globe migrate to Canada. The Canadian government was targeting 350,000 by 2021. Unlike USA which has suspended immigration post COVID 19, its neighbour Canada is still open.

Canada offers good quality of life to all migrants. A Permanent Resident (PR) Visa is the first step to get a Canadian citizenship. A Permanent Resident is a person who has been accorded the resident status by the Canadian Government and enjoys work and business rights like normal Canadian citizens. He/she can live and work anywhere in Canada for the duration of five years and does not require a work permit. Businessmen can do business or invest in any part of Canada just meeting the regulatory requirements for such investments or business. Essentially a PR visa holder though remains a citizen of his/her home country but enjoys special privileges and rights in Canada and is expected to pay all taxes in Canada. But the person need not pay no tax on income earned outside the country.

  • Can Work without a work permit anywhere in Canada
  • Invest anywhere in Canada
  • Start and run business anywhere in Canada
  • Get most social benefits that citizens of Canada receive inclusive of health care coverage.
  • Enjoy Protection under Canadian law and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
  • Can apply for a citizenship after 2 complete years of residence and stand a better chance to get one.

How to get a PR Visa
