However, we have seen that a lot of self-made applications are rejected or lead to misrepresentation.

an initial consultation with you and discuss your possibilities.

Spousal or common law sponsorship: Inland or out the land, you can sponsor your partner for PR if you are a permanent resident, a Canadian citizen
Dependent children: You can sponsor your children, adopted children, and common-law children through this application
Parents and Grandparents program
Family sponsorship allows family members to live, work, and study in Canada. As a sponsor, you need to prove you will:
Meet basic needs of food, housing, and clothing for your family member
Be able to support the family member financially for a period of time
To work in Canada as a foreign national, you will need a work permit.
There are two types of work permits:
Open work permit that allows you to work for any employer in Canada without restrictions. for example as a PGWP holder, spousal work permit and more.
Employer-specific work permit that specifies the name of the employer you can work for, location, and for how long you can work. Those work permits are usually done through an LMIA or Intra company transfer.
As an international student, you may also be eligible for a PGWP ( Post-graduate work permit), usually valid for the same length as your studies. Many programs allow you to work for 20 hours a week on and off campus while pursuing your studies.
The good news is most of the work permits can create a pathway for you to become a permanent resident after a certain time.
