We Can Help You To Immigrate
To Canada

Canada offers a diverse range of entry pathways tailored to individual needs. For temporary stays, options include applying for a visitor visa, study permit, or work permit, depending on your circumstances. Those seeking permanent residency in Canada must undergo the intricate and time-consuming process of applying for permanent residency. Engaging an immigration lawyer can significantly enhance your chances of a favorable decision.

Each year, Canada welcomes over 300,000 individuals from around the world as permanent residents. These individuals enjoy many rights and benefits akin to Canadian citizens, such as access to free healthcare, complimentary elementary and secondary education, and subsidized tertiary education fees. However, permanent residents are not entitled to vote or obtain a Canadian passport.

To qualify for Canadian citizenship, a permanent resident must have resided in Canada for at least 1,095 days within any five-year period, meeting the residency requirement.

Sutton Law is dedicated to assisting individuals, whether they are preparing their initial application for permanent residence or facing obstacles in their citizenship application. With our extensive experience in handling immigration matters, we are prepared to offer the necessary advice and legal representation to successfully navigate Canada's immigration laws.

Visiting Canada

Acquiring a temporary visa is a prerequisite for visiting Canada. Depending on your purpose—whether it's for business or tourism—you can apply for the appropriate visa type to legally enter the country for family visits or business engagements. Notably, citizens of certain countries may be exempt from the temporary resident visa requirement. However, spouses or dependents of temporary residents from specific nations might still require a temporary resident visa, though it does not grant permission for employment in Canada. Seeking guidance from an immigration lawyer can streamline the process of obtaining the necessary immigration documents for your travel needs. For foreign nationals requiring multiple entries to Canada, a temporary resident visa is essential. Business visitors can partake in international business activities without a work permit, such as attending meetings or providing contractual services, by stating their visit's purpose upon entry. Travelers from visa-exempt countries are mandated to obtain an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), valid for five years. American citizens are exempt from the eTA requirement.

Working in Canada

Individuals from other countries seeking employment in Canada must secure a work permit, which can be either open or employer-specific. Before obtaining employment, arrangements must be made with a recognized Canadian employer. Spouses of foreign nationals employed in Canada may be eligible for a spousal work permit. Additionally, Canada provides programs such as the International Mobility Program and the Temporary Foreign Worker Program to facilitate employment for foreign workers.


Permanent Residency in Canada

Highly skilled workers can achieve permanent residency in Canada through the Express Entry program, which evaluates candidates based on a points system designed to identify those likely to thrive in the country. Alternatively, for individuals ineligible for Express Entry, investment presents another route to permanent residency. The investor program encourages business investments in Canada, offering a pathway to long-term residency for qualified investors.
