An Overview of Canadian Residence

Canada is the second largest country in the world, after Russia, and largest on the North American continent. It is one of the world's wealthiest nations and has one of the world's highest qualities of life. Today, Canada closely resembles the USA in its market-oriented economic system, pattern of production, and high living standards.

An excellent choice for residence and citizenship

The relaxed lifestyle, stable political, justice, economic, and social environment, excellent educational and health system, multilingual population, and world-renowned Canadian tolerance of other cultures, made Canada one of the most desirable countries to live, do business, raise family, work, and invest in.

The country has a long tradition of immigration and an elaborate system to evaluate and admit new residents. Citizenship is available after three years of residence (and 183 days minimum physical presence during each of the three calendar years). The Canadian passport is one of the best travel documents in the world.

You can establish residence by applying for Canadian permanent residence in one the following categories:

  • Investors
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Self-employed persons
  • Skilled workers and professionals

Once your application is approved, you and members of your immediate family may enjoy all the advantages of Canadian citizenship (with the exception of voting and holding political office), including access to excellent free health care and first-class education.
