After living for 5 years in Canada with three different employers and at least five work permit renewals, I finally got the permanent resident in Canada for me and my family. I will describe in this article how I did it and I will share some few tips.
Please remember I am going to write what to do, not how to do it. I will also describe my specific case, which will be useful for those who have a similar scenario. Please do not send me questions regarding how to do things or what if you have another profession different than mine, I will just ignore those comments.
My background is the following:
Applying under Canadian Experience Class.
The key to getting an Invitation to Apply is having a good score. For example:
Read, read read. All information is on the CIC website. You can always call the CIC call centre for any doubt.
When I did this, of course like anyone, it was my first permanent residence process. So, as I was not having any previous knowledge, I didn't do many things in parallel, which it could save me some time.
Here it is my Gantt diagram.
You can download the source as well.
This is a Gantt diagram I did myself to document the process I did. It has some improvements and document dependencies so you can do parallel things and save some time.
You will need Calligra 3+ to open it (available in any Linux distribution, I think there is a Windows port).
I put some comments on each item. Numbers are not in order, they correspond to the task id from the Gantt chart.
I want to thank all those who support me. Especially, I want to thank to miss Jessica Thibault who has supported me and helped me without any personal gain.
Good luck!blog comments powered by Disqus
