Canada’s TR to PR pathways facilitate transition to permanent residency
Several economic immigration programs enable candidates to gain work experience. Canadian work experience is crucial to enhance the chances of transitioning to permanent residency. These candidates score higher points in Express Entry Selection, improving their CRS scores.
Transitioning to permanent residence is easier for temporary permit holders as they can smoothly integrate into Canada’s labor force by establishing roots in their respective communities.
