Frequently Asked Questions

A permanet resident (PR) or a landed immigrant applies to persons who can enjoy the same rights as a Canadian Citizen except for the right to vote and a certain limitation to stay outside Canada. PRs can not be indicted with a serious crime or else they will lose their status. Successful permanent residents will be able to apply and become Citizens after taking a test and the oath of allegiance to the Queen. 

Permanent residents of Canada enjoy the same rights and privileges as Canadian citizens such as ability to apply to and work at any position, travel and re-enter Canada for a limited duration, free primary and secondary education, eligibility for higher education student loans, and social assistance.

To keep your permanent resident status, you must have been in Canada for at least 730 days during the last five years. These 730 days don’t need to be continuous. In some cases, the residency outside Canada counts toward Canadian residency. Please contact us for details and advice.

Immigration is a serious and life-changing underatking and we at Canset handle this through specialization and experience. We underastand that each immigration category requires the RCIC that has successfully handled similar cases over the years and is on top of the IRCC updates and regaulations that affect the processing of applications.  

As soon as a client is retained, a dedicated communication channel will be created through which the client will access the progress and share information.

There is no law that keeps an applicant to apply for immigration directly as is the case when somebody serves a complaint through a court of justice. Therefore, you don’t a legal representative either to apply for a visa or to immigrate. Canset addresses solely the demands before or during the application process and works with the Licensees who are authorized to represent clients before IRCC.

Many clients have told us stories of how they took time and effort and applied on their own and now they are disappointed after their applications were rejected. What should they do now?

While there is no one single answer to all the different cases that are not successful, a fundamental misunderstanding behind these rejections is that most of the applicants believe that submitting merely valid documents will lead to a positive outcome for their applications. 

If you are not sure of meeting the eligibility criteria for your application, you will not only risk losing a lot of time spent before and after your application, you might risk becoming ineligible to re-apply for years  to come.

To illustrate the issue here, consider an experienced painter who combines different colors to create a beautiful work of art while the paints alone do not have artistic appeal.
