Canada Work Permit
Whilst having a Canada work permit is not officially recognised as an Immigration Pathway to Permanent Residency or Citizenship it does often eventually mark the first step in the journey towards these Visas.
Every year over 250,000 people come to Canada on temporary work permits! It is by far the most popular work permit route of any of the major migration hubs in the World. We are proud of our successes and are best placed to assist you.
Obtaining a Canada work permit can be complex although it’s a well trodden path. We will need to work alongside you and your employer to ensure a speedy, efficient and seamless process.
In the first instance you must obtain a job offer from a Canadian employer; This offer must be marked as temporary although we are not referring to casual work, simply that the job offer is for a pre determined length of time usually anywhere from a few days to a number of years.
Please take a look at our Jobs in Canada section to search a live database of over 100,000 jobs in Canada. We do have a dedicated recruitment arm which works alongside clients to secure both a great role and their Canada work permit.
In order for a Canadian Company to make a formal job offer they must have first received a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from an organization called the office of Employment and Social Development Canada, alternatively known as the ESDC. The ESDC must be satisfied that there is no Canadian suitable or available for the position. We have made many representations to the ESDC in respect of LMIA and have the skills and expertise in house to simply get the job done with the minimum of fuss.
Once the Impact Assessment has been completed the employer can issue a formal job offer; this formal offer has to be written in the right way and we will advise you and your employer (if necessary) of the requirements.
After your job offer and LMIA have been documented we will then apply for your Canada Work Visa which should be granted very quickly, in fact we can even potentially have you in Canada within a matter of days.
What skills are in demand for a Canadian work permit?
Because of the way the Canada work visa is structured there are very little barriers or obstacles to overcome aside from marketing your CV and then yourself in the best possible way.
