There are many different paths that may bring you to Canada permanently. Canadian immigration programs include the following:

• Skilled workers and professionals (for those seeking to reside and work in Canada but not in the Province of Quebec);
• Province of Quebec – selected skilled workers (for those that the Province of Quebec selects to reside and work in that province);
• Canadian Experience Class (for those that have recent work experience in Canada or have graduated and recently worked in Canada);
• Investors, entrepreneurs and self-employed people (for those that are seeking to begin a business in Canada);
• Provincial nominees (a Canadian province or territory can nominate you to settle and work in that province or territory); and
• Sponsoring your family (sponsoring a family member to join you here if you are a permanent resident or a Canadian citizen).

Navigating the rapidly changing area of immigration law is a daunting experience – most especially these days when the Canadian government makes new announcements with respect to immigration programs and policies most every month. It is imperative that you consult with lawyers that are knowledgeable and have a keen understanding of Canadian immigration programs and processes so that you and your family will be successful in immigrating to Canada.
