Published on : Sat, Aug 27 2022     80

What is a permanent resident in Canada?

A person who immigrates to Canada and obtains permanent resident status but is not a Canadian citizen is known as a permanent resident of Canada. Citizens of other nations are always permanent residents.

A temporary resident of Canada, such as a foreign worker or student, is also not a permanent resident.

As a citizen of Canada, you are eligible to:

  • Obtain the majority of social advantages available to Canadian citizens, such as health care coverage
  • Can work, study, and live anywhere in Canada.
  • Can seek citizenship in Canada
  • Obtain legal defense under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

How to speed up the Canada PR procedure:

  • Obtain a complete profile evaluation
  • A proper check of the documents checklist always
  • Notify the IRCC of any changes to personal data.
  • Submit documents and photocopies that are clearly visible.
  • Offer translations in French or English
  • Never give false or deceptive information.
  • Never a miss deadline
  • Timely response to IRCC's request

The first step is to check whether you are eligible for any of the three Express Entry-managed programs, which include:

  • Federal Skilled Workers Program
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program
  • Canadian Experience Class

For this, you must understand the specific requirements for each program in full before you can take a free online profile evaluation. You must respond to a few questions during the profile review in order to determine whether or not you match the minimum eligibility standards.

Step 2: Gather all required documentation.

The next step is to obtain all the required paperwork, such as a certified copy of the language test result or identification documentation. To initially demonstrate your eligibility for entry into the Express Entry pool, all of this is needed. It is advisable to obtain certain documents in advance because they could take longer to obtain in some cases.

For the initial stages of your Canada PR process, you require the following papers to create your profile:

  • Valid travel document or passport
  • Results of a valid language test
  • Report on the evaluation of educational credentials for degrees obtained outside of Canada (If applying via the Federal Skilled Workers program or want to gain points for the education gained outside of Canada)
  • Territorial nomination (not mandatory, only if you have)
  • An employment offer from a Canadian company (not mandatory, only if you have)

You will receive an invitation to apply for Canada PR if you are selected from the applicant pool and move up among the top candidates. In this situation, you must also submit the supporting paperwork listed below with your final application:

  • Police certificates
  • Medical exams
  • Proof of funds

Step 3- Submit your Express Entry profile

The following step in your Canada PR procedure is to make and submit your profile and give the IRCC information about you (Immigration, Refugee, and Citizenship Canada). The IRCC will add you to the candidate pool if you are qualified. Your profile will be evaluated and given a score inside the pool based on many criteria, such as age, education level, work experience, language ability, etc.

You will be rated in the pool based on your evaluation using a reliable points-based system, such as CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System).

Please note that submitting an Express Entry profile and joining the pool does not ensure that you will receive an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

  • Your passport or another travel document
  • Language assessment report 
  • Language assessment report 
  • Police clearances
  • Health examination report
  • Proof of funds
  • Proof of work experience

Step 5: Upon getting an ITA, submit any supporting documentation.

Before your ITA expires, you must complete the online forms as soon as you can by gathering the necessary data and paperwork. After acquiring an ITA, you must submit the following paperwork with your final application:

Your certification of a medical examination

Your family members' health is evaluated for e-APRs or electronic applications for permanent residency. The medical examination certificates must be submitted by you as the major applicant, your spouse or common-law partner, and your dependent children.

Certificates of police clearance

A PCC is required to ensure that you and your family have no criminal records against them and don't pose a security threat to Canada.

A bio-data page of any travel document, or a copy of the passport

This document is crucial for establishing your identity.

Proof of work experience

A customized document checklist appears in your account. For each item on your checklist that relates to work experience, you must submit the following documents:

A testimonial or recommendation letter from your present and former employers, printed on business letterhead

You must provide copies of your T4 tax slips and NOA (Notices of Assessment) documents, issued by the Canada Revenue Agency, for any Canadian work experience you may have.
