Path to Canadian Permanent Residency - A Realistic Plan for Successful Settlement in Canada

캐나다 영주권 취득의 길 – 성공적인 캐나다 정착을 향한 현실적인 방안

One thing that does not change even after a year and a half since the Liberal Party government, which has a pro-immigration policy, came into power is the fact that permanent residency in Canada is possible only if you have a Canadian job experience.

It has long been proven that the way to land after receiving approval for permanent residency in the home country, like skilled immigration in the past, is no longer a realistic path. This is because skilled immigration and independent immigration exist institutionally within the Express Entry system, but it is meaningless if there is no score for employment in Canada.

Provincial immigration also has a different period for each state, but all require Canadian work experience, and at least a job offer is required to proceed.

What should I do to pass through the gateway to ‘Canadian employment’, which is the only channel for immigration to Canada other than humanitarian immigration such as parental invitation, spouse invitation, and refugee?

First of all, since the Canadian government's immigration policy, which gave permanent residency first and helped with employment and settlement in the past, has now changed to give permanent residency to those who have been verified to be able to work and settle down first, finding a job in Canada is an unavoidable course to acquire permanent residency. A positive attitude is important.

In fact, the tremendous setbacks and twists and turns caused by unprepared immigration are the parts that many frontline immigrants feel sorry for. It takes less than two to three months to realize that no matter how professional or a good career in a large company in your home country, it will not help you to settle in Canada.

It is up to the traveler, not the immigrant, to live comfortably in a place where the language is different, no connections and no experience. Except for the very few people who immigrate only to spend money, all immigrants should start with a desperate awareness of reality, ‘How should I earn money?’ in an unfamiliar place. This is because the dream of immigration without awareness of reality is an illusion and a temporary romance.

Researching what is the most efficient and safest way to gain Canadian language, networking, and experience for a job in Canada comes down to a few answers.


Canada's official languages ​​are English and French. About 70% of Canadians use English, and since English education is especially emphasized in Korea, the challenge is how to raise English to a high level.

If you have the time and money to spare, taking language training locally is the most effective and quickest way. However, not everyone can afford that, so it is better to solve language problems in Korea as much as possible. That's a way to cut down on costs and avoid the extreme stress of arriving in Canada.

If you have majored in French or have experience working for a French-speaking company, you can get unexpectedly positive results by raising your French level and using the Quebec provincial immigration system.


There is no way to make Canadian connections in Korea. Therefore, you need to find the right positioning to make connections in Canada.

There is no special trick to create a new one by leaving behind all of Korea's precious networking assets that are entangled in academic, regional, and blood ties. What is clear is that a pure human relationship can be created more easily when there is no sharp interest, and considering this, the answer would be to actively engage in activities other than making money, such as school activities, religious activities, hobbies, and volunteer activities. 


Again, you cannot gain Canadian experience in Korea. Therefore, among those who wish to immigrate, if conditions are met, it is recommended to have prior experience information such as working holiday or field trip.

If not, the safest way to gain experience is to secure a protective environment, such as school or an unpaid internship, where mistakes are tolerated.

Many people who are thinking of working in Canada consider entering a public college specializing in vocational education as a realistic way to gain Canadian language, networking, and experience.

A close relative in Canada runs a business, so if there is a support space to replace the school, of course you should use it, but if not, it is true that you need to invest in establishing a position to adapt to a new society for a certain period of time and secure employment competitiveness.

To that end, college admissions in Canada are far from perfect, but it's certainly a very realistic option. Considering that Canada is a country that does not hire new employees, public colleges for vocational education with curricula designed so that they can be immediately put into work play a key role as a pathway for employment not only for immigrants but also for local Canadians.
