To become a permanent resident a foreign national must apply to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), under one of several permanent resident categories like Federal Skilled Worker, Quebec Skilled Worker, Provincial Nominee Program, Family Sponsorship, Business Immigrant etc. Each category caters to a slightly different group of immigrants and comes with its own set of requirements.

One of the main benefits of permanent residency is the granted unconditional right of abode in Canada. The following are the streams that can be a way for gaining Permanent Immigration of Canada.
