HOW IS A WORK PERMIT DIFFERENT FROM CANADIAN IMMIGRATION VISA
A Work Permit allows an eligible individual to reside and work in Canada for a limited period of time, and restrictions are sometimes placed on the type of employment which can be pursued. It will not, by itself, lead to Canadian Permanent Residency, but can be a stepping stone to achieving this status. By contrast, a Canada Immigration Visa entitles its holder to live and work anywhere in Canada, enjoy many of the privileges of Canadian citizenship, apply for Canadian citizenship after three years and sponsor family members for Canadian Permanent Resident status.
WHAT PROGRAM DO I APPLY IF I HAVE A POST-SECONDARY EDUCATION PROGRAM
Canada values your education and takes it into consideration for many of its Canadian immigration programs. Certain programs, such as the Skilled Worker and Provincial Nominee programs, assign a point value to your education. Start your free assessment and find out if your education helps you to be eligible for an economic immigration program.
WHAT PROGRAM DO I APPLY FOR IF I HAVE AT LEAST ONE YEAR OF SKILLED WORK EXPERIENCE

Moreover, the Business Investor and Entrepreneur Immigration programs operated by the Federal or Quebec governments offer excellent opportunities for obtaining Canadian permanent resident status through investment or entrepreneurship.
