A permanent resident is a citizen of another country who has been granted permanent residence upon immigrating to Canada. A permanent resident is not a Canadian citizen.
Many people relocate to Canada every year as permanent residents. They complete an application process that allow them to start a new life in Canada. Once a person is permitted to come to Canada as a permanent resident, he/she is granted a permanent residence permit and enjoys virtually the same rights as Canadian citizens except the right to vote.
