Permanent Residence for Students

Getting PR in Canada after study permit is much more convenient. While having a Canadian degree, you have maximum chances of improving your Express Entry profile in terms of the CRS score.

Canadian Experience Class

You fall into this category if you have completed post-secondary school on a full-time basis. You get concentrated points for immigration having the postgraduate level or doctoral degree.

The perks of applying PR after getting a Canadian Degree is that you do not have to apply for ECA- Educational Credential Assessment.

Also you do not have to take Language Proficiency tests as you are being counted as an Inland Applicant. There are many immigration options in Canada for students studying in the program in Canada for at least two years. Highly experienced students in Canada are very attractive to Canadian employers, and because of the good quality of Canadian schools, Canada is committed to keeping foreign students graduating from its institutions of learning.

You can apply for temporary residence (work and study) and permanent residency in Canada - which is known as dual purpose. Two purposes allow international students to apply for permanent residence, while simultaneously obtaining their provisional study permit. For students, this makes Canada an striking place to learn.

The beauty of these programs is that applicants can get their permanent residency in Canada faster than other programs. Many permanent residency programs in Canada have the rights of applicants linked to Canada, whether they have links to a particular province, Canadian job experience, or Canadian degree qualifications.

Immigrant students from Canada benefit from some or all of these benefits if they choose to enter full-time service in Canada. Please note that international students in Canada must safeguard that they meet the conditions of their study permit while sitting. If a student violates the terms of a study permit, this could risk future applications for immigration.

Many Canadian immigration programs require a certain amount of skilled employment, which can put foreign students at risk. However, many foreign students who graduate from Canada are eligible to apply for a work permit after graduating who are authorized to work in Canada to get this important job. International Student Migration Programs There are many migration programs available for foreign students.

Foreign students studying in Canada can apply to stay in Canada permanently while studying in Canada or after completing their studies, as long as they meet the requirements of the Canadian immigration program they work under. Applying for a study permit in Canada and a permanent Canadian residence at the same time is called a “dual purpose”, and such practice is common and accepted by Canadian immigration law.

Below you will find a list of Canadian migration programs students may wish to view:

Canadian Experience Section (CEC)

To qualify for the Canadian Experience Class, student applicants must have at least 12 months of work experience in Canada, in a professional career (candidates must apply within three years of obtaining 1 year of relevant experience). Students can obtain the required job information in Canada by applying for a work permit at Canada Post-Graduation Work. It is important to note that any experience of part-time work completed during the course of study or as part of a study program (such as internships and co-ops) does not count on the search for a Canadian work experience.

Quebec Experience Section (QEC)

International students who have completed a well-known study program in Quebec, and who have a moderate level of proficiency in the French language may succeed under this Canadian immigration program. Work experience in Canada is not required for this immigration program in Quebec.

Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs)

Many states offer migration programs to Canada for foreign students through the proposed provincial programs they have. In general, applicants must be successful in the Canadian post secondary education program. Needs may vary by province; sometimes job information and job descriptions are required. PNPs are a popular form of migration for Canadians as applications for permanent residence in Canada are processed faster compared to other migration programs.
