For foreign nationals, there are many potential avenues for immigration to Canada to pursue. Let Tudor House help you find the one that is right for you.
For most immigrants, the path to Canadian citizenship starts with an application for permanent residency. Once secured, Canadian citizenship is within reach, but many permanent residents simply don’t know what is required or how to apply.
With the help of Tudor House, citizenship status could be yours! Eligibility requirements for Canadian citizenship include:
- Permanent residency
- Having lived in Canada for three out of the last five years
- Having filed Canadian income taxes (if applicable)
- Passing citizenship test
- Demonstrated proficiency in language selection requirements (English or French)
Each year, Canada’s outstanding educational institutions attract students from all over the world. For many people, studying in Canada is a first step towards establishing a new career, and eventually, permanent residency or Canadian citizenship. Speak to a Tudor House immigration consultant for more information about how to complete a study permit application.
To qualify for Canadian study permits, applicants must:
- Provide proof of acceptance into a designated learning institution in Canada
- Demonstrate financial stability (i.e. that you can afford to pay for your studies and living expenses)
- Show proof that they are law-abiding citizens who pose no security risk to Canada (this could require a certificate of good conduct from the police)
- Be healthy and willing to undergo a medical examination if deemed necessary
Family sponsorship makes it possible for you to sponsor a spouse or close family members, so that you may reunite in Canada. Every Canadian citizen or permanent resident has the right to sponsor family members to become permanent Canadian residents.
Canada’s aim is to keep families together as much as possible. Your relatives can be permitted entry in order to live, study, and work in Canada. Both the sponsor and the sponsored person must be approved by the government department responsible for the Family Sponsorship program: Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
The IRCC requires that the sponsored person fit into one of three immigration categories. You can sponsor your:
- Common law partner
- Dependent Children
These economic immigration programs allow strong candidates to speed their way through the immigration process. If your application makes a strong case, you could be invited to apply for permanent residency before others who may be less qualified.
