    2 to 3 years atleast, priority is given to spousal visas which get done in a year

    Such a wide variety of situations.

    They can be issued in a few hours if all is in order.

    MOST will take about a month for a simple situation like a tourist visa.

    Moving in situations expect the wait to be easily a year or two. Some with very good credentials are much faster a few months.

    It depends on your skills, and the country you are coming from.  It can take weeks, for great skills that are in demand, from a good country, to years for an average candidate from a country with lots of corruption.

    That depends on where in the world you are from, what imigration visa you qualify for.........so 'time' is  personal to the individual and their circumstances

    Depending on your qualifications & the way you are attempting to immigrate, it can take anywhere from 6-9 months to about 4 years. Marriage to Canadian citizen now takes rather longer than qualifications for employment - IF the quota for your occupation has not filled. With extensive education, training, experience credentials in an occupation in seriously short supply, and hired by an authorized employer supporting your application for PR, it can take maybe 6 months or so from the time you are hired.

    If you do it through an immigration lawyer, it can be pretty quick, about a few months, as they keep on top of the case.

      This only works if you hire Canadian immigration lawyer in Canada, and you have excellent, verifiable documentation of your qualifications, and your occupation really is in seriously short supply, and the quota is still open! Do NOT use a "consultant" in your country.
