Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada frequently publishes immigration policy manuals for its personnel to provide guidance in the exercise of their functions. Below we include annotated summaries of Canada immigration policy manuals.
This section contains policy, procedures and guidance that the staff of Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) typically refer to. The authorities have placed this on the website of Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) as a courtesy to stakeholders.
Canada has entered into bilateral agreements with provinces and territories. These bilateral agreements enable provinces and territories to nominate individuals for permanent residence. Provinces and territories typically carry out such nominations based on their assessment of the nominees’ ability to contribute to the economic growth and development of those particular provinces.
However, it is worth mentioning that Canada has entered into these bilateral agreements with all provinces and territories except Quebec and Nunavut.
