Working in Canada
Canada offers a range of immigration opportunities and probably does more than most other countries to encourage skilled workers to move to Canada. There are four main categories for visas and there is also an option for a work permit:
Canada Skilled Worker Visa
The Skilled Worker Visa for Canada is the most popular way of applying for migration to Canada. This allows you to enter Canada with the right to work without first needing to find a job. Find out if you qualify by using the Canada Skilled Worker Points Calculator
Canadian Business Immigration
Canadian Business Immigration offers three different Canada Business Visa categories for business immigration to Canada for potential migrants wishing to Invest or start a business in Canada.
Canadian Family Visas
Canadian citizens and permanent residents living in Canada, 18 years of age or older, may sponsor close relatives or family members who want to become permanent residents of Canada.
Although you can't apply for Canadian citizenship until you have lived in Canada for at least three years, you can be thinking about what it means from the moment you arrive.
Work Permits - A work permit for Canada can only be obtained if you have an offer of employment before applying for your Canadian work visa. Canada seeks to attract temporary skilled workers to fill positions that Canadian employers are currently having difficulty to fill by a Canadian Permanent Resident or Citizen.
