  3. 3. 1.1 INTRODUCTION: IMMIGRATING TO CANADA<br />FOR WORK<br /><ul><li>There are two main paths to seek employment in Canada as an immigrant. One is to obtain a Permanent Residence Visa. The other is to come to Canada on a Temporary Work Permit
  4. 4. Each year Canada permits around 250,000 immigrants to enter Canada as permanent residents. Another 180,000 or so come in as temporary foreign workers, and about 70,000 as students. The majority of permanent resident immigrants are accepted on one of the economic categories of immigration, though many come in as family members, and some as refugees</li></li></ul><li>1.2 ELIGIBILITY: IMMIGRATING TO CANADA<br />FOR WORK<br /><ul><li>It can be difficult to figure out if you are eligible to immigrate to Canada or to qualify for a work permit. For instance, some programs require you to have a job offer in hand before you arrive here. Others are more flexible. Certain programs are offered at the provincial government level. Others are processed by the federal government
