The study permit process begins with getting accepted by an accredited designated learning institution (DLI). Consult the experienced immigration experts at Cambria Law to increase your chances of approval.

Work permits allow foreign nationals to legally work in Canada. Generally, an employer must prove to the government that their labour needs can’t be met locally and they need to hire foreign talent.

Allow foreign nationals to stay in Canada up to 6 months at a time. They are among the visas most often applied for and most often rejected.

Allow parents or grandparents of Permanent Residents and Canadian Citizens to stay in Canada for up to 2 years at a time. The sponsor must meet certain income requirements, write an invitation letter and purchase medical insurance for their parents/grandparents. You must establish that your parents/grandparents will return to their home countries upon completion of their visit.

This pathway is currently a lottery system that allows a pool of eligible sponsors to obtain Permanent Residence for their parents/grandparents.

One of the requirements for both inside Canada and outside Canada applicants is to prove their relationship is genuine. This is done through photos, evidence of one-on-one communication (texts, video calls, emails, etc.), and/or legal/civil documentary evidence.

The single biggest source of Permanent Residents to Canada is Express Entry. There are 3 streams: 

  1. Canadian Experience Class (CEC) – The minimum requirement is 1 year of cumulative NOC 0, A, or B work experience in Canada in the last 3 years.
  2. Federal Skilled Class (FSW) – At least 1 year of continuous foreign work experience in the last 10 years in NOC 0, A, or B.
  3. Federal Skilled Trades (FST) – At least 2 years of work experience in the following NOC Codes – 72, 73, 82, 92, 632, or 633.

Each province is awarded a certain number of nominations every year by the federal government. Each province has different immigration streams that allow candidates to be nominated for permanent residency based on certain qualifying criteria.
