The Canadian website provides an online tool called ‘come to Canada’ which helps all foreigners to find out if they are eligible to apply for permanent or temporary immigration. It basically asks you a few questions based on your personal and work history. Based on your responses, it will then provide you a list of options and step-by-step instructions on how to apply for immigration. After you send in your application, an immigration officer will consider it based on the Canadian Immigration law.
If you want to make Canada your permanent residence, there is the Express Entry immigration selection system. Applicants are selected based on their skills, experience, etc. There are three categories under the Express Entry; the Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC), the Canadian Experience Class (CEC); and the Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC). You can check your eligibility and which category you fall under on the website and send an Expression of Interest (EOI). Based on the Comprehensive Ranking System, a score will be issued after assessing the EOI. Based on this score, they will issue an Invitation to Apply (ITA).
There are also work and student permits which allow you to stay in Canada for a certain period of time. You can also check out the variety of programs which makes your immigration process hassle-free on the Canadian website.
