Every year, thousands of people live the dream- of becoming permanent residents of Canada. We at EEP can help you realize this dream. A Permanent Residence Card will allow its holders to live, work and study in Canada on a permanent basis.
Before you apply for one, however, it is important to determine which immigration stream is best suited for you. One can submit the application for one’s spouse when applying through this stream.
Once a successful application has been lodged, an applicant who has been granted permanent residence may be eligible to move with his or her spouse along with dependents to Canada.
As a permanent resident cardholder, one needs to be able to furnish it anytime while entering Canada. You will need to provide a Canadian mailing address via mail or via an online application tool within 180 days of entering into Canada and the new card will be sent to you.

The application process includes getting copies of your passport and supplying a photo for the card. Next, pay your application fees online and submit your application for processing. The processing times will vary based on the time of year you are applying.
