How to apply for permanent residence in Canada?


A permanent resident is a foreign citizen who has obtained permanent resident status by immigrating to Canada, but who is not yet a Canadian citizen. This is the step that precedes the application for Canadian citizenship. The status of permanent residence is characterized by the possession of a permanent resident card (PR) or permanent resident travel document (TVRP).

To be eligible, you must have spent at least 730 days in Canada. The request is made through the Express Entry device. This is valid for 90 days. Then the 6 month processing time begins. Once issued, the residence card is generally valid for 5 years.
