  • Accompanying a Canadian citizen who is your spouse, common-law partner or parent (if you are under 19)
  • Employed by a Canadian company or working for the public service of canada and as a term of your job has been assigned on a full-time position outside of Canada
  • Accompanying a permanent resident who is your spouse, common-law partner or parent (if your are under the age of 19) and they were employed full time by a Canadian business or working in the public service of Canada

Another obligation of a PR is to pay taxes and respect all Canadian laws

As a permanent resident you have most rights that a Canadian citizen would have such as:

  • Social benefits
  • Health care
  • Live, work, or study anywhere in Canada
  • Apply for Canadian citizenship
  • Protection under Canadian law

However, the following are rights not allotted to PRs

The selection system is referred to as Express Entry and it is used to process most of the immigration applications in for skilled and qualified workers who wish to come into Canada.

Start-up Visa

The Start-up Visa program has made it easy for business-minded industrious people that are innovative, can create jobs, and can compete with other businesses around the globe. Basically, this is a way to encourage people that can contribute positively to the economy of the country. This process can be a bit tricky, so most business immigrants hire immigration lawyers to handle their start-up visa application process.
