Permanent Residency Overview

Permanent Residency in Canada

A permanent resident is someone who has been given permanent resident (PR) status by immigrating to Canada but is not a Canadian citizen. PR status is granted to thousands of people each year and can provide you and your dependents with the ability to:

  • Live, study, and work anywhere in Canada
  • Apply for Citizenship after a period of residence
  • Sponsor additional family members
  • Get healthcare coverage
  • Get protection under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

How to Get Permanent Residency

Your path to permanent residency depends on your unique situation and background. Canada has a variety of programs including Express Entry, Family Class Sponsorship, and Canadian Experience Class which all have their own requirements and timelines.


The application process for these programs can be time-consuming, confusing, and challenging. Also, the government frequently changes their rules and programs. Those who make mistakes in their application package may experience a decline or long delays in processing. That is why it is important to work with a trusted, experienced and affordable immigration professional to put together your application package.

Cristina from CEW Legal can help you determine the best way to get your permanent residency in Canada, make sure your entire application package is complete and correct, and communicate directly with the government on your behalf to address their questions or requests.

"Cristina was very professional and caring when working with me. She understood how important permanent residency was to me and worked hard to put together my Canadian Experience Class application package and support me through each stage of the process. I received my permanent residency much faster than I expected and would recommend her to anyone."
