Fingerprinting

For Permanent Resident or Landed Immigrant Status

Suitcase icon

A permanent resident (aka landed immigrant) is a person who has been granted permanent resident status after immigrating to Canada. Permanent residents are not Canadian citizens; they are citizens of other countries. A person residing in Canada temporarily, like a student or foreign worker, is not a permanent resident. Refugees become permanent residents through the Government-Assisted Refugee Program or the Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program. Someone who makes a refugee claim in Canada does not immediately become a permanent resident. To do so, the Immigration and Refugee Board must approve their claim before they can apply for and get permanent resident status.
