Sponsor Your Spouse or Parents
If you are a permanent resident of Canada or a citizen, you may help a family member immigrate to Canada and obtain permanent residence. The Canadian immigration system proudly extends family reunification as one of its central pillars. If you want to go through the sponsorship process successfully, you must fulfill specific requirements and meet the eligibility criteria.
To apply for sponsorship, you must be 18 years old and a Canadian Citizen or permanent resident. Additionally, you must not be receiving any social assistance and can provide for the basic needs of the person you want to sponsor.
Phoenix Legal offers assistance for sponsorships of a spouse, partner, dependent children and parents. We can also assist in the adoption of a child for permanent residence in Canada.
Canada Immigration Programs
Canada always opens its doors for immigrants and provides various options to achieve permanent resident status. But before applying for any of the programs, it is essential to make sure that you are eligible to become a Canadian resident.
There are many ways to apply for permanent residency in Canada. You can consult our immigration lawyers at Phoenix Legal in Calgary for accurate advice as the Canadian immigration policies are constantly changing. Whether you need to sponsor your spouse or parents to get permanent residence in Canada or want to get your PR Card renewed, we can help.
Skilled Worker/Express Entry
There are various programs available that are dedicated to bringing qualified, skilled workers and those who wish to invest financially in Canadian business. We can help you determine the right program that suits your needs.
In early 2015, the government launched a new active recruitment model known as the “Express Entry” system. This system prioritizes processing for candidates with the education and skills to succeed in Canada.
Canada Experience Class
Temporary foreign workers are eligible to apply in this category. The applicant must have achieved 12 months of skilled work experience within the last 36 months. All applicants must have maintained their temporary resident status during their qualifying period of work experience and any period of full-time study or training in Canada.
Applicants must have the qualifying work and study experience needed at the time the application is made, and effective June 26, 2010, must demonstrate knowledge of English or French by the results of an accredited English language test. Finally, applicants must have been in compliance with regulations, namely not have engaged in unauthorized work or study, not remained in Canada after the time authorized to do so has expired and not been found inadmissible to Canada on grounds such as health or security.

Provincial Nomination across Canada
The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) allows each province and territory to select foreign nationals who want to immigrate to Canada based on their specific needs. Each province and territory offers a different set of conditions that applicants must meet in order to be eligible for a PNP nomination. The PNP is a vital part of the Canadian immigration system helping provincial governments respond quickly to the economic needs of their local job markets and support population growth in under-populated areas of Canada.
Phoenix Legal is prepared to assist eligible applicants who wish to work in Canada as temporary workers or those wishing to seek permanent residence in the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP). We can also assist in the preparation of similar applications in other provincial nominee programs.
Start-Up Visa Program
Do you have promising ideas for a new business venture? Does your enterprise have the potential to go global?
The start-up visa program was created in an effort to promote Canadian innovation and help foster business growth in Canada.
This program offers Canadian permanent resident status to qualified immigrant entrepreneurs and links them to investors in Canada.
Phoenix Legal’s immigration lawyers in Calgary can help with the preparation and submission of an application for permanent residence if you are able to procure a commitment of the accredited investor.
Humanitarian Applications - Section 25
This is truly the last resort for many applicants who would not otherwise be admissible to Canada in other categories. In order for an application to succeed under this section, undue hardship and sufficient compassionate and humanitarian grounds must be demonstrable in the circumstances.
A well-prepared application can lead to permanent residence, and we have achieved successful results for many applicants. . Call us today to work with our permanent residence lawyers in Calgary.
Benefits of Canadian Permanent Residency Status
Why become a permanent resident of Canada? Here are the many advantages:
You and your family can live and work in Canada, a country known for the high quality of life and security its citizens enjoy. Besides being able to move freely internally, you start and grow your business.
Canadian permanent residence offers many advantages over temporary immigration permits, including a pathway to qualifying for Canadian citizenship.
While you do have to pay taxes as a permanent resident, you can apply for tax rebates and social security benefits.
Individuals up to 18 years of age enjoy the right to free education up to Grade 12. Permanent residents also pay the same tuition fee at the university level that citizens pay, which is far less than the fee for international students.
You get free medical care under the federal government’s universal health care coverage.
