Get a Canadian Green Card

Many Americans move to Canada to start a new life, work, live and raise a family. In order to legally do this, they must obtain permanent resident status and get a permanent resident card. Permanent resident cards are also called PR Cards or the Canadian green card, because they are very similar to the United States’ green card for legal permanent residents.

There are many different ways to become a permanent resident of Canada. While permanent residents are not Canadian citizens, they do have the opportunity to become Canadian citizens after a certain amount of time. There are also lots of benefits that they receive that other types of immigrants do not.

Ways of obtaining permanent resident status in Canada

To become a permanent resident of Canada, there are several methods:

Method 1: Workers with strong language proficiency in English or French who have Canadian work experience, other work experience and high levels of education could qualify to immigrate as permanent residents under the Skilled Worker Program.

Method 2: People who have family members (including spouses) who are already Canadian citizens or permanent residents could be sponsored by these family members or spouses for permanent residency.

Method 3: You may be eligible for permanent residency in Canada if you invest with the government or under any number of business immigration streams.

Method 4: If you are a temporary foreign worker or international student already in Canada who has Canadian work experience, you could qualify for permanent residency under the Canadian Experience Class.
