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

  • I made it to Canada, but now what do I do in regards to immigration?
  • How do I stay in Canada permanently?
  • How do I get permanent residence?
  • Do I need a work permit?
  • How do I renew my work permit?
  • What about my spouse and children?
  • How do I become a Canadian citizen?
