Types of Canadian Visas
Permanent visas are issued to applicants who want to immigrate to Canada and who meet certain eligibility criteria. There are several immigration categories: skilled workers (or economic class); entrepreneurs, self-employed persons, investors, and sponsored individuals.
Skilled Worker Class
Skilled Worker applicants have at least one years work experience in a skilled profession. The skilled workers application is assessed on the basis of specific selection criteria to determine the likelihood that the new immigrant will be able to become "successfully established" in Canada.
