Student Visa to Permanent Stay in Canada Simplified

Student Visa to Permanent Stay in Canada Simplified.

You can turn your student study visa to a permanent stay in Canada and get to work and earn a better living.

Becoming a Canadian resident can brings so many opportunities your way. You can get work at any company of your choice and for any employer, you get to travel in and out of Canada at will, get to sponsor your family member, relative, or spouse to Canada, and the best part is that you can live in Canada forever without fear of being sent back home except you lose your Permanent Resident permit.

The dream for students in Canada is to work in Canada after graduation to at least gain working experience in Canada. However, there are immigration pathways in Canada that will allow you to easily become a permanent resident in Canada through your study visa.

If you can follow the procedures, you won’t make mistakes, and you can enjoy a smooth stay with no issues.

Getting the Work Experience as A Student

When you get a study visa to study in Canada, you become eligible to work in Canada even while you are still studying. Since you are still studying though, you are allowed only a few hours in a week, and you are not allowed to work for certain employers without a study permit, especially outside the campus. Although you can take up holiday jobs, and other jobs within campus without a work permit during the study.

The Canadian government also created a graduate work permit program that permits foreigners who completed their course program and have graduated from a Canadian university, to remain and work in Canada even when their student visa has expired. This is a bold move from the Canadian government to retain foreign graduates in Canada in other to help boost their economy and also fill up vacant positions in companies.

These different jobs will ensure you get the needed working experience in Canada which is an important requirement when you apply for a permanent residence permit in Canada. Another important factor to keep in mind is that it will be faster for you to become a permanent resident if you have a valid job offer from an employer in Canada.

Because you have already schooled in Canada, and probably gotten some experience, it is far easier for an employer to offer you a job or sponsor your permanent residence dreams. Here are some reasons why you need a sponsor in Canada.
