How to immigrate to Vancouver
There are several ways to obtain Canadian Permanent Residency, depending on the candidates profile and qualifications. Foreign nationals can come to Canada as a temporary resident, study and work here, gaining the work experience and education needed to apply for permanent residency, or apply for permanent residency even before leaving their home country, whether they meet the requirements of a permanent residency program. Besides these pathways, those who plan to immigrate to Vancouver can also consider:
Vancouver is one of the biggest cities of Canada. Many of the principal Canadian colleges and universities are located in Vancouver. We have arrangement with 40 schools in Vancouver offering exchange, certificate, diploma and degree programs in the most diverse fields such as health, business, trades, science, and arts. Among those educational institutions, 14 offer study programs eligible for Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP), an open work permit granted to graduates in Canada who meet the program requirements. The PGWP is valid for one to three years, depending on the program length, giving international graduates authorization to work in Canada after concluding their studies.
