Canadian immigration can be complicated. Danielle Samuels and Vivian Becker from the Housing and Relocation services office are here to help answer questions you have about the immigration process in Canada. At this workshop we plan to answer the following questions:

  • Do I need a work permit?
  • How do I renew my work permit?
  • What about my spouse and children?
  • How do I get permanent residence?
  • How do I become a Canadian citizen?
