Come to Canada: online tool helps prospective immigrants

Newcomers learn to participate in and enjoy outdoor winter activities in Canada.

Do you want to work, study, visit, travel through or live permanently in Canada?

The online tool Come to Canada helps foreign nationals find out if they may be eligible to apply as immigrants, visitors, workers or students in Canada.

Answer a few questions to find out what immigration programs you can apply for. Each immigration program has different application and eligibility requirements. You will need about 10-15 minutes to complete the form.

You may be asked questions about your:

  • Nationality
  • Age
  • Language ability
  • Family members
  • Education
  • Work experience
  • Income and/or net worth
  • Details on any job offer

Based on your answers, you will be informed about what programs you may be eligible for, so be as accurate as you can.

If you are eligible, detailed list of instructions on what to do next will be provided.

Come to Canada guides you through some questions about your personal and work history. Based on your responses and your situation, it then gives you:

• A list of options.

• Sep-by-step instructions on how to apply.

The Come to Canada tool is for reference only. No immigration decision will be made based on your answers. If you choose to apply, an immigration officer will consider your complete application based on Canada’s immigration law. Your results from the tool will have no bearing on their decision.

If you may be eligible as a visitor, worker, or student you can apply online. 

The tool will direct you to your account, where you can create an account and fill out the online application. 

You may also have the option to complete a paper application.

If you may be eligible to immigrate permanently under Express Entry, you must apply online (unless you cannot because of a disability). The tool will direct you to your account, where you will create an account and can fill out the online application.

If you may be eligible to immigrate permanently under any other program, you must submit a paper application.
