Start Your PR Planning - For Temporary Residents

How Temporary Residents Can Prepare For Their Permanent Residency Application.

It is no secret that many people who travel to Canada to work or study may have the ultimate goal of gaining permanent residence.

This blog post is to encourage those on a work or study permit to envision what immigration goals they may have for themselves and to determine the steps necessary if they are interested in permanent residence.

Even if you have not begun the application process, it is in your benefit to think and plan ahead.

Being proactive will work in your favour because applying for permanent residence requires gathering many important documents, meeting inflexible deadlines, paying fees, and ensuring that your application is complete and meets appropriate requirements.

Here are 5 tips for permanent residencY planning:

  1. Start your research early: Research which programs you may be eligible to apply for permanent residency through and check your eligibility and processing times, some applications will take longer to process, and some classes of applications are only open at certain times during the year. If your permit will expire before you get permanent residency, you will need to plan to extend it.

  2. Understand the requirements of your Immigration program: Be sure that you understand the requirements for the permanent resident application. You may need employer support for an application such as with an OINP application, or you may need to gain a certain amount of work experience before you apply, such as with the Canadian Experience Class application.

  3. Gather Evidence for your application early: Start to gather the required documentation for your application, documents such as police clearances, past work experience verification, birth certificates, marriage and divorce certificates can all be prepared ahead of time. Save yourself the hassle of planning.

  4. Plan financially for your Immigration application: you will need to pay IRCC processing fees for an application, as well as fees for additional documents. Many programs have a requirement for settlement funds, be sure to understand how much you will need for you and your family for the application.

  5. Seek professional help if you're confused: If you're unsure of the process, seek help from a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant to help you navigate the process. Expertise can be crucial when planning your future.
