Immigration Information

Canada attracts immigrants from around the world.

Immigrants contribute to making Canada ethnically and culturally diverse. One in five people living in Canada was not born here and in large cities like Toronto up to 44% of the population has immigrated.

People applying for immigration may be considered based on a points system, close family ties or on humanitarian grounds. Find out if your application can be expedited by applying under one of these streams:

    • Are a child accompanying a parent
    • Employed on a full-time basis by a Canadian business or the Public Service of Canada; or the accompanying spouse, common-law partner or child of a permanent resident who is outside Canada and who is employed on a full-time basis by a Canadian business or the Public Service of Canada.
