However, the Government of Canada has developed a program for highly qualified professionals with secondary vocational or higher education, work experience at the level of the declared education and a confident command of English and/or French. This unique program makes it possible to obtain the status of a Canadian resident even before entry and come to Canada immediately with almost all the rights of a Canadian: to work, to free education for children, to social programs from free medical care to government assistance on many issues.

Family members (husband/wife, including in civil marriage, if they lived together for at least 1 year, and children under the age of 19) they can leave together with the main applicant and get the same rights. Everyone will have multi-vises, and you can come home an unlimited number of times, but to obtain citizenship it is important to live in Canada for 3 out of 5 years, and stay in Canada physically for 1,095 days.
