We Can Help You To Immigrate
To Canada

Canada offers various pathways for entry, tailored to different needs. For temporary stays, individuals may apply for a visitor visa, study permit, or work permit, depending on their specific circumstances. Those seeking to settle in Canada as permanent residents will need to undergo the permanent residency application process, which can be complex and time-consuming. Engaging the services of an immigration lawyer can greatly enhance the chances of a favorable decision.

Every year, Canada welcomes over 300,000 individuals from around the world as permanent residents. These individuals enjoy many of the rights and benefits afforded to Canadian citizens, such as access to free healthcare, complimentary elementary and secondary education, and subsidized tertiary education fees. However, permanent residents are not eligible 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.

At Sutton Law, we're here to assist whether you're preparing your initial application for permanent residence or facing obstacles in your citizenship application. With our extensive experience in handling such matters, we're prepared to offer the advice and legal representation needed to navigate Canada's immigration laws successfully.

Visa, Work, Study, and Residency Options


Visiting Canada

Acquiring a temporary visa is imperative for visiting Canada, regardless of your purpose—whether for business or tourism. Depending on your intentions, you can apply for the relevant visa type to legally enter the country for family visits or business activities. It's worth noting that 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 need a temporary resident visa, which does not permit employment in Canada. Consulting an immigration lawyer can streamline the process of obtaining the appropriate immigration documents for your travel needs. Foreign nationals requiring multiple entries or exits from Canada must secure a temporary resident visa. Business visitors can engage in international business activities without a work permit by declaring their visit's purpose upon entry, such as attending meetings or providing contractual services. Travelers from visa-exempt countries must obtain an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), valid for five years, except for American citizens who are exempt from the eTA requirement.

Working in Canada

Foreign nationals wishing to work in Canada must obtain a work permit, which may be either open or employer-specific. Employment arrangements must be made in advance with an authorized Canadian employer. Additionally, spouses of employed foreign nationals may be eligible for a spousal work permit. Canada also provides programs like the International Mobility Program and Temporary Foreign Worker Program to facilitate employment for foreign workers.


Permanent Residency in Canada

Highly skilled workers can achieve permanent residency through the Express Entry program, which evaluates candidates' potential success in Canada using a points system. Alternatively, for individuals ineligible for Express Entry, investment presents another pathway to permanent residency, with the investor program incentivizing business investments in Canada.
