Advantages of Canadian

PERMANENT RESIDENT VISA

When you become a permanent resident of Canada, you are entitled to most of the same rights and privileges as a Canadian citizen. Below is a list of a few of these rights:

  •  You are entitled to equal treatment and equal protection.
  •  You are entitled to certain legal rights, such as to be presume innocent until proven guilty
  •  To be provided with an interpreter in the courtroom, if necessary to have a lawyer
  •  You have the right to enter and exit Canada as you see fit, plus you can move freely from province to province.
  •  You can work and study anywhere you choose in Canada (you cannot hold some high-security government positions, however.)

These benefits include, but are not limited to, the following:

Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB) – For families with children under the age of 18 who are considered to have a low-income, the Canadian government provides monthly tax-free payments to help cover expenses.

Old Age Security, Guaranteed Income Supplement, and Canada Pension Plan – All three of these programs are designed to provide financial support to workers after they reach retirement age – currently age 65. To be eligible, you have to meet specific residency requirements and to have contributed to the system by paying taxes in Canada. However, most permanent residents will qualify for at least partial payments from these programs.

Universal health care – Most necessary medical expenses are covered through the Canadian universal health care program. These expenses include visits to emergency room, immunizations, yearly exams, etc.

Free education – All children under 18 are entitled to a free education in the Canadian public school system.

Maternity and parental leave – In Canada, working parents are given time off when a new baby is born or adopted. Women can take up to 12 months of maternity leave and receive 50 to 65% of their normal income. Partially paid parental leave is also available for up to 35 weeks. One parent can take all 35 weeks or both parents can split the allotment of time (i. e. one parent takes 20 weeks while the other takes 15 weeks). To be eligible for parental leave, you must have worked in Canada for at least 600 hours.

All of these benefits and more become available to you when you are a permanent resident of Canada.
Q&A

PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAMS

When you apply under the Express Entry System and if you get a direct Invitation to Apply for PR, you are free to choose any province to live in Canada (except Quebec). In some cases, the applicants may require a provincial nomination in order to gain additional 600 points to boost their CRS score. Despite the huge number of applicants under the Express Entry System, not all regions of Canada are benefitting from the skilled immigrants arriving every year. Most of the immigrants choose to settle in prime metropolitan localities such as Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary or Winnipeg and the rest of the country end up not getting sufficient immigrants. In order to bridge this gap, there are many programs designed by the individual provinces tailor made to suit the local demand in their respective regions.
Below are some of the provincial programs available for applicants within and outside Canada.

NOTE: For programs that require job offer, the applicants must scout for their own employer. Universal Immigration does not engage in any employment search services.
