About Canada

Canada Immigration remains popular because the country is consistently ranked as being among the best countries in the world to live. Quality of life in Canada is extremely high. Canada provides a comfortable standard of living, good health care, social security, public education, low crime rates, a stable and growing economy, and a clean environment. Canada is a free and democratic society. The Canadian constitution, called the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, guarantees everyone the rights to equality, mobility, freedom of speech, assembly and association.

People around the world consider Canada a generous, peaceful and compassionate nation. Canadians are viewed as honest, friendly and polite. A 1997 survey of people in 20 countries found that the majority placed Canada in the top ten list of countries where they would like to live Canada is a nation built on immigrants. Canada receives approximately 200,000 to 250,000 immigrants a year. It is a multicultural society that celebrates its differences. Canada has two official languages, English and French. Unlike many countries, Canada accepts dual citizenship. Canada's immigration system starts with an understanding that individual's in Canada must have legal status. Without "legal status" an individual is considered to be in the country illegally. There are three types of legal status' or "categories", they are: Temporary Residents, Permanent Residents and citizens.

Temporary Residents can be easily removed from Canada on the basis that they have committed a crime, have depleted their funds, or have raised a concern by Citizenship and Immigration Canada that they have acquired an intention to stay in Canada permanently. There are 3 types of Visitors to Canada: tourists, students, and skilled workers. Foreign workers from the United States and Mexico, may be exempt from obtaining a job validation pursuant to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Other types of Foreign workers are also exempt from the job validation process as Citizenship and Immigration Canada has currently implemented special programs (IT Professionals). The Live-in caregiver program permits applicants to work in Canada temporarily, and to ultimately obtain Canadian permanent residency. Permanent Residents are individuals who intend on coming to Canada on a permanent basis. Permanent Residents can only be removed from Canada on the basis of committing a serious crime while in Canada, or when it is established that they no longer have an intention of residing in Canada permanently.

There are numerous ways of acquiring Canadian Permanent Residency, such as the Skilled Worker Immigration (Skilled Worker) Program, Business Class Immigration Programs (Entrepreneur, Investor, Self-Employed), Family Class Sponsorship Program, and the Family Business Class Program. Also, there are the Provincial Nominee Programs which selects applicants according to labor demands, and business opportunities in a particular province. The province of Quebec selects its own Skilled Worker, Investor, and Entrepreneur and Self-Employed Immigrants. The Conventional Refugee Program protects those escaping political, religious or social persecution. For those who do not fit within Canada's Immigration System, applicants can apply for Canadian permanent residency on the basis of Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds.
