Let’s get started. Shall we?
1. Study Permit
Canada has one of the best universities in the world. As such, if you are looking for the best school to study in, you really should consider Canada as it offers quality education.

2. Spousal Sponsorship
Prior to this time, we’ve written on how to immigrate to Canada through marriage. Migrating to Canada through spousal sponsorship basically has to do with being married to someone with Canadian citizenship.
Over the years, people have had to abuse this method hence, there’s been a few guidelines to better curb any fraudulent activity regarding this method.
For one, the Canadian immigration will closely look at you and your spouse for a period of 2 years before signing off papers to authenticate your marriage. This is done to prefer people from faking marriage just to gain entry into Canada.
3. Visitor VISA
Visitor Visa is another way you can migrate to Canada. However, just as this name implies, this has to do with entering Canada using a Visitor VISA as a visitor.
With this kind of VISA, there’s not much you can do aside tourism. You cannot find a job using this type of visa neither are you allowed to work. However, with the Visitor visa, you are allowed to network and meet people in the country.
If you are looking to network and meet people, maybe find a spouse, we’ve a few contents that might be able to you.
4. Investor VISA
Canada and other top countries are usually open to investments. Not just any type of investments, but good investments that can help the country and its citizens and not just the company or individual coming to invest.
If you’ve got money and plan to invest in Canada, this type of visa is recommended. With this, you can go into Canada and invest thus giving you more privileges compared to the visitors Visa.
5. International Experience Canada (IEC)
Being able to migrate to Canada via International experience Canada (IEC) has to do with youths being given opportunities to travel and work in Canada.
Youths between the ages of 18 and 35 are allowed to work in the country during holiday vacations but with an open work permit.
Of course, this category isn’t open to just anyone. However, it could be for you if:
- You don’t have a job offer yet
- You’d like to earn money for travel
- Want to work for more than one employer in Canada or/and
- If you want to work in more than one location
There are a few participating countries and this includes Denmark, Japan, Rica, Australia, Norway, Taiwan, Austria, France, Germany, Slovenia, Hong Kong, Mexico, Spain, Sweden, Czech amongst others.
For some of these countries, eligibility expires at age 29 or 30.
With the experience gathered during a working holiday, you can apply for permanent Residence through the CEC. The CEC is a federal skilled worker of trades program.
6. Working Holiday Visa Canada
This is somewhat similar to the international experience Canada process explained above.
CIC which is also known as Citizenship and Immigration Canada, offers young people from around the world the opportunity to work in Canada for up to two years. Qualified candidates can work in any Canadian province and for any Canadian employer.
What’s even more interesting with the working Holiday Visa Canada is the fact that the program does not require a job offer to qualify. However, it is required that foreign workers, students and other individuals from certain countries meet with the requirements.
This type of work permit however, will not allow you work in certain fields like healthcare or with children. Reason being, medical exam is not required. There is also a government processing fee of $150 CAD.
7. Super VISA Canada
The last but not the least way you can immigrate to Canada is through the Super VISA. This type of visa is particularly for parents and grandparents.
There are requirements for which you can be able to apply for this entry process. For one, you must be a parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada. You need to also have a signed letter from your child or grandchild who is inviting you to Canada.
