Hi there.

Well, that first depends on how long you've been staying in Canada. If you have lived in Canada for at least 3 years, then you would be able to apply for permanent residency.

With that being said, once you get your permanent residence card, you will be eligible to pay domestic fees. However, with the tightening of immigration laws, it will only be increasingly harder to get one.

Hope that helps.

So Do I really need to live in Canada for at least 3 years to get permanent residency?

It depends on what category you are in. I suggest checking this out: http://www.cic.gc.ca/English/newcomers/about-pr.asp.

But if you haven't lived in Canada at all, I'm afraid you won't be able to get permanent residency. You don't just live for 3 years and then you will be eligible for permanent residency. There is a complicated immigration process that you will need to take before being considered for it.

It took me 7 years to get permanent residency. The application process can be really complicated and difficult. If you're banking on doing that to pay for your university, I suggest that you consider other options unfortunately.

You can't just show up in a country and expect permanent residency
