Permanent residency is a status that is given to the people who are not citizens of Canada, but they are legally allowed to stay in Canada and work. They are not required to change or renew their status like temporary residents but are required to abide by the residency obligation to maintain their PR status.
There are various benefits of becoming a Canadian Permanent Resident.
- As a PR you enjoy the right to live, work and study all over Canada.
- Similar to citizens, permanent residents receive all social benefits and health benefits.
- Canadian law and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms protect the rights of every PR and avail them a life of honour.
- Sponsor your family.
A Permanent resident can apply for Canadian Citizenship if they meet all the eligibility criteria.
