PERMANENT RESIDENCE CARDS AND CITIZENSHIP

NEW IMMIGRANTS TO CANADA RECEIVE A PERMANENT RESIDENCE CARD AND ARE REQUIRED TO REMAIN PHYSICALLY IN  CANADA FOR TWO YEARS OUT OF EVERY FIVE YEARS TO MAINTAIN THAT STATUS, UNLESS THEY ARE EXEMPT. EVERY FIVE YEARS THEY MAY RENEW THEIR PR CARD. TO AVOID ISSUES RELATED TO YOUR STAY IN CANADA, LET US HELP YOU WITH THE RENEWAL PROCESS.

THE ULTIMATE GOAL FOR MOST NEW IMMIGRANTS IS CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP. THIS REQUIRES THREE YEARS OF PHYSICAL PRESENCE IN CANADA WITHIN THE PREVIOUS FIVE YEARS. THIS MAY BE REDUCED BY UP TO ONE YEAR IF YOU HAVE LIVED IN CANADA PRIOR TO ACQUIRING PERMANENT RESIDENCE. PROOF OF YOUR TIME IN CANADA CAN SOMETIMES REQUIRE A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF PROOF, WHICH IS BETTER PREPARED BY SOMEONE WITH OUR EXPERIENCE. AT THIS TIME IN HISTORY, MOST COUNTRIES ALLOW DUAL OR MULTIPLE CITIZENSHIP. SO, FOR MOST, GETTING CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP WILL NOT JEOPARDIZE YOUR CITIZENSHIP IN YOUR COUNTRY OF BIRTH.
