Permanent Residence

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada facilitates the admission and entry of permanent residents in a way that maximizes their economic, social, and cultural contribution to Canada while at the same time protecting the health, safety, and security of Canadians.

The Canadian government encourages applications for permanent residence from people with abilities, education and work experience to contribute to the Canadian society or with family relationships in Canada to reunite with their family members. There are many immigration programs that allow eligible applicants to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
