Comprehensive Permanent Residence Advice
As a permanent resident in Canada, you are legally permitted to work, live, receive health care coverage, and otherwise benefit from Canadian services. Permanent residents also have the ability to sponsor family members including spouses, children, parents, and grandparents.
At Setzer Immigration Law, we regularly handle permanent residence applications including:
- Family class sponsorships (spousal and family)
- Canadian experience class
- Express entry
- Federal skilled worker program
- Federal skilled trades program
- Humanitarian and compassionate cases
- Provincial nominee programs
- Personal resident card renewals
Family Class Sponsorships
If you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, you may be able to sponsor your spouse, conjugal or common-law partner, child, or other eligible relative to become a permanent resident. We have significant experience assisting Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor their family members to immigrate to Canada. We have in-depth knowledge of the requirements that need to be met and a comprehensive understanding of the documents that need to be provided. Given IRCC’s strict requirements, it is important to provide a complete package at the initial submission to avoid delays and/or return of an incomplete application package.
From helping you navigate the application process to handling matters relating to reviews and appeals, we are here to help guide you through the process from start to finish.
