Access application forms for Canadian immigration via the website of the Canadian government by clicking on the “My Application“ option under the "Immigration" tab and then on the Find Forms and Guides heading. The desired immigration application form can then be selected from a drop-down menu. The codes for all immigration forms begin with "IMM." The website also lists the locations of Canadian visa offices worldwide where application forms can be obtained.
The Canadian government website hosts the Generic Application Form for Canada, which is coded “IMM 0008” and must be filled out by every applicant regardless of which immigration program he is applying through. The information requested on the form includes which category the applicant is applying under, number of family members attached to the application, language preference and current country of residence. These details must also be filled out for all dependents attached to the primary applicant’s claim. Additional forms required by the applicant’s specific visa office are also available on the Canadian government website.
Currently, the Canadian government website offers online applications for visitor visas, study and work permits, Interim Federal Health Program coverage, and permanent residence through the Express Entry program. If an applicant wishes to submit an application under one of those programs, he can create a Government of Canada account with a login called a GCKey. Alternatively, applicants with Canadian banking logins may use their existing sign-in information to create an account. With a GCKey or baking login, the applicant can access the relevant forms, pay the application fee, and submit his application.
