PERMANENT RESIDENCY (PR IN CANADA)
A permanent resident is someone who has been given permanent resident status by immigrating to Canada, but is not a Canadian citizen. Permanent residents are citizens of other countries.
Permanent residency in Canada is a status granting someone who is not a Canadian citizen the right to live and work in Canada without any time limit on their stay. As a permanent resident, you have the right to get most social benefits that Canadian citizens receive, including health care coverage, live, work or study anywhere in Canada. To become a permanent resident a foreign national must apply to immigration, under one of several programs.
However these programs follow a point based immigration system, so your selection for PR visa is determined on the basis of total points you score based on your education, age, work experience etc.
