Residence permit in Canada.
In 2018, Canada attracts many migrants, including Russians, with their high standard of living and wages, a relatively low crime rate and excellent conditions for the creation and opening of their own business. Therefore, it is not surprising that today a greater percentage of people who want to immigrate abroad, stop their choice on this state.
But it is worth remembering that for a legal stay a migrant is initially required to obtain a residence permit in Canada, which in the future can serve as the basis for conferring the status of a citizen of this country.
How to get a residence permit.
Migrants who have a residence permit in Canada have the right to enjoy all the social benefits of this country. That is, a migrant with a residence permit can get joblessly in Canada, receive social benefits and use the entire list of medical services. The only thing that distinguishes the holders of residence permits from citizens of Canada is the right to vote in elections. Also, migrants with a residence permit do not have the right to hold positions in the political sector, to run for office in elections. In addition, the similarity of the rights of holders of residence permits and residents of Canada is completely identical.
To obtain a residence permit, you must immigrate to Canada. In other words, it’s on an immigration visa that you enter. If a person drives a Canadian tourist visa and decides to obtain a residence permit, he is likely to be refused, because in Canada there are several criteria for the population who have the right to apply for a residence permit. These include:
entrepreneurs; refugees; investors; independent workers; independent applicants; people wishing to obtain residence permits for the purpose of family reunification.

To leave for permanent residence in 2018 as an independent applicant is quite difficult. There are a lot of candidates for this “role”. That is why the Government of Canada has developed a competition on the basis of which it is possible to obtain this permission.
The essence of the contest is to pass special testing. Of the possible 100 points, the applicant must score at least 70. This competition takes into account all the applicant’s data: from age to education and language skills. If the number of points scored is less than 70, but more than 59, the decision to leave for permanent residence is taken directly at the consulate.
Immigrant visa to Canada.
The main task for migrants is to obtain an immigrant visa. It is she who gives the basis for the issuance of a residence permit to a migrant.
For refugees, it is necessary to have the approval of the Canadian regional immigration center. To do this, people with this “status” submit all the necessary documents to the consulate in the country of the actual stay. The submitted documents are sent to Canada for consideration. The decision to take a decision is strongly influenced by the political situation. If the commission makes a decision, that people really need an asylum, then they can start preparing for the exit.
Family reunification in 2018 is possible only if a Canadian citizen or migrant with a residence permit will challenge relatives.
