Pre-arrival services
Do I qualify for your pre-arrival services?

You qualify for our pre-arrival services if:

  • You are outside Canada
  • You have been informed by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada that you have been chosen for permanent residence in Canada


You do not qualify for our pre-arrival services if:

  • You are waiting to be granted permanent residency in Canada
  • You have obtained an immigration status different from that of permanent resident (e.g., working visa, working holiday permit, study permit)
  • You have permanent residency and are already living in Canada


Once you have received official confirmation from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, you can request access to our pre-arrival services.


If you are a permanent resident of Canada and are already living in Canada, please click on the following link to communicate with a settlement officer: http://www.vivreencb.ca/contact
