Product details

This timely immigration law guidebook addresses an important legal topic – the legal status of non-citizens in Canada. For years, Canada has been a preferred destination for many – whether they may be visitors, asylum seekers or permanent residents. Yet there is no one source that provides definitive information regarding all these groups. For the first time, an entire text has been devoted to this increasingly significant area within immigration law and policy. The book looks at various categories of non-citizens – from permanent residents to temporary foreign workers – and explains their respective rights and legal status.

  • Changes to avenues to permanent residence, particularly the express entry system
