By definition, Canadian Permanent Residency Visa is that visa which is granted to a person if they possess certain factors like education, age, work experience and proficiency in the two official languages of Canada, English and French, which indicate a likelihood of them becoming economically settled in Canada.

The minimum required points to be selected are 67 points and the individual should have ten years of experience in certain predefined occupations. Under special conditions, however, individuals who do not get the required number of points may still get selected, as they show an exceptional tendency to settle down in Canada.
