How can I determine whether I can apply for permanent residence?

To find out if you can apply for permanent residency try the Come to Canada tool. It will help you figure out which immigration program will work best for you.

This tool guides you through some questions. Based on your responses and your situation, it will give you

  • a list of options, and
  • step-by-step instructions on how to apply

This tool will help you understand the requirements to immigrate to, visit, study in or work in Canada. However, to actually come to Canada, you must still submit the right application forms.
