It is well known that Canada has a generous
national welfare, but when we first arrived in Canada, we are
inevitably confused by some visas and welfare rules because of different
cultures, backgrounds and different social systems. GLOBEVISA summed up a few
precautions that bring practical value and help to applicant.
1. Canada Visitor Visa
For parents who want to accompany their
child who study in Canada, need to apply for a tourist visa. If the child is
not yet an adult, one of the parents is allow to stay Canada for a longer
2. Study Permit
This visa is the prove from Canadian
government that allowed children to study and stay in Canada. For student
holding this study permit and do part-time job, so that they could gain money
and job experience. It would benefit the children if they want to apply job in
Canada. Children can work for maximum 20 hours per week and have full-time job
(around 40 hours per week) at summer holiday.
3. Open Work Permit and Close Work
For applicant holding open work permit
could work at any company, and have the freedom to change their job. For
applicant holding close work permit, he/she must work at designated company.
For applicant who already obtained work permit and going to enroll advanced
studies for more than six months, need to apply new study permit. Applicant can
owned work permit and student visa at the same time.
4. Citizens and Permanent Residents
Canadian permanent residents and citizens
enjoy the same rights and social benefits, such as public health insurance,
free education for primary and secondary schools.
There are only three differences: 1. Permanent
residents do not have the right to vote 2. Permanent residents do not have a
Canadian passport 3. Permanent resident crimes may be expelled from Canada.
