How long does it take to process a Permanent Residence visa? 2 to 3 years? Maybe 4? Or even 5 years? Too long? Forget about proper Canada immigration process. Get a Tourist Visa, buy the cheapest flight and travel to Canada. Illegal immigration is the way! With enough hard work, surely anyone can land a job and survive! Citizenship and Immigration Canada eventually had granted visa for those asylum seekers, anyway..
Surprisingly quite many people choose illegal immigration. Approximately 8,700 people are removed from Canada every year!
But referring to the statistic in the past 10 years, Citizenship and Immigration Canada has welcomed, on average, 220,778 immigrants and refugees a year! Out of this figure, nearly 59% of Canada immigrants are in the skilled worker and business immigrant categories. Therefore, the most famous Canada immigration route for Economic Class is to apply a Permanent Residence visa under Federal Skilled Worker Class! However, unless you are eligible to apply from visa office in Buffalo (U.S.A), in most cases, visa applications which are processed overseas take more than one year to be approved.

On September 1, 2006 Citizenship and Immigration Canada introduced the Simplified Application Process, of which applicants only need to lodge visa application forms and the processing fee. This is great, compared to previous practice when applicants must lodge their application forms, pay the processing fees and include the supporting documents such as Bank Statement, results of the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) examination, etc.
