Unfortunately, many immigration professionals such as Immigration Consultants have as little as one year of college level training. Also, it is important to choose a lawyer with expertise in Immigration law. Some lawyers practice many areas of law and may not have adequate knowledge of immigration law to serve you. There are hundreds of immigration programs that have different requirements and factors. An expert immigration lawyer with years of experience can assess your situation and provide the best advise for you.

Through family sponsorship, foreign nationals are sponsored by a relative who lives in Canada and can provide assistance to the individual to establish himself or herself in the country. Individuals who can be sponsored under the family sponsorship program include spouses, common-law partners, parents and grandparents, dependent children (including those who are adopted), and orphaned relatives under the age of 18 who are not married.
PERMANENT RESIDENCY IN CANADA ( EXPRESS ENTRY )
If you are a skilled worker you can get permanent residency in Canada through the express entry program. The Express Entry program is an Immigration Application Management System for economic immigration into Canada for candidates who are most likely to succeed in Canada. Participants are awarded points under a ranking system and those with the highest ranking scores will be invited to apply for a permanent resident visa in Canada within 90 days. If you are not eligible for the express entry program, you can use investment as a route to get your permanent residence visa in Canada. The immigration investor program was established in 1986 by the government of Canada and promotes business people with intentions of investing in Canada to immigrate into the country from around the world.
You are a Canadian citizen if you were born in Canada, adopted by a Canadian citizen or if you acquire citizenship as a permanent resident. If you want to become Canadian citizen, you will be required to submit an application and take a Canadian citizenship test. When applying for citizenship in Canada, you need to have stayed in Canada for the requisite days in order to be eligible. You need to have lived in Canada for at least four of the past six years as a permanent resident before your citizenship application. Other eligibility criteria for citizenship applications include being able to speak English or French, meeting the personal income tax filing obligations and declaring your intent to reside in Canada.
STUDYING IN CANADA
Studying in Canada is a great opportunity to get a world-class education and a multicultural learning experience. Studying in Canada is the first step to becoming a Canadian for many immigrants since they are eligible for a post-secondary work permit after finishing their studies. When you’re able to stay in Canada after graduation you can get Canadian work experience and this will form the base for your future applications for permanent residence in the country.
For any foreign national to work in Canada they must first obtain a work permit. It may be an open or close authorization depending on the type of permit. You will need to have pre-arranged employment from an employer in Canada who is authorized to hire you in order to apply for a work permit. If you are accompanying your spouse who is employed in Canada you can get spousal work permit. There are various other areas in immigration law for foreign nationals who want to come and work in Canada such as the International Mobility Program, International Experience Canada, Temporary Foreign Worker Program and intra-company transfers.
