Permanent Residence

Permanent Residence (PR Card)

There are many programs available to become a permanent resident and you don’t necessarily need to be living in Canada or have family members in Canada in order to be eligible to apply.

A permanent resident is someone who has been given permanent resident status by the government of Canada but is not a Canadian citizen.

As a permanent resident, you have the right to:

  • Get most social benefits that Canadian citizens receive, including health care coverage
  • Live, work or study anywhere in Canada
  • Apply for Canadian citizenship after meeting the requirements
  • Protection under Canadian law and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms


There are several immigration programs that can lead you to become a permanent resident of Canada. If you continue living in Canada for a specific period of time, you can eventually apply to become a Canadian citizen. 

If you would like to know more about the process of becoming a permanent resident of Canada or want to find out if you are eligible in your current situation, contact us below.
